March Forth 2017; Winter Sunset Over Elginwood Pond

I am an intelligent, creative and optimistic individual.
I have learned from my past.
I am happy I have learned what I have.
I am applying the knowledge I have gotten to my present situation,
  and will continue to do so in the future.
I am happy that I have gotten the experience that I have.
I am not happy with my present situation,
  but I am happy with the direction I am going.
I am not happy with the rate I have been progressing,
  but I am happy that I am accelerating the rate of my progress.
I am happy I have the skills I do, but I am not satisfied with their number.
I will learn more skills in the future,
  and revitalize those that have fallen into disuse.
I will not stagnate;
  I cannot allow myself to fall backward;
    therefore, I will progress.
I want my future to include my dreams.
My chosen future can only be mine if I earn it.
Therefore, I will earn it.
Nothing can stop me because I am determined to succeed.
The only thing that can stop me from achieving what I want is my own negativity.
Since I want the things I want,
  and the only obstacle is myself,
I can, and will, conquer everything in my path.
I will succeed this time.
I will allow no other results.
So be it.
