Each day, we provide a series of daily affirmations and reflections designed to help you get that ShineBuzz feeling. We suggest that you read through the affirmations (aloud if possible, in your head if not) and meditate on them for a few moments. You can also choose one or two that speak to you and carry them with you throughout the day. When you’re finished, take a few moments to answer the reflection questions at the bottom in your journal or add them into your meditation, whichever works best for you. Here are today’s affirmations and reflections.

I treasure the special people in my personal and professional life.

They are an integral part of my team for setting and achieving objectives.

Ego has little room in my interactions with others. It is important to put aside pride and maintain focus on the common goal. I acknowledge that I only have some of the answers. It is easy for me to call on others when the solution requires broader input.

The creativity that goes into achieving goals is possible through the ideas of various minds. It is exciting to hear what others have to contribute. I respect their talent and intellect. There is so much to learn from those around me.

When I feel frustrated from searching for an answer, I readily bounce my thoughts off another person. I achieve newfound clarity when I hear someone elseÕs views on the situation. It is a rich experience to share in the solution.

Togetherness means agreeing to disagree as long as that is best for the whole. I am willing to step back from my perspective for the betterment of the team.

My most rewarding accomplishments are those that come from teamwork. I enjoy collaborating with others because solutions appear quicker. I am effective as a leader because I inspire my team to participate fearlessly.

Today, I find joy in having willing collaborators around me. I love having smart minds and open hearts on my team.
