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.

Practice enhances my performance.

I believe in the power of practice. Focusing on specific goals and training strategically helps me to excel.

I increase my motivation. When I see the results of my efforts, I am inspired to keep trying. I gain confidence and satisfaction. Each victory makes me want to set a new goal to strive for.

I learn and grow. I stretch my abilities and expand my knowledge. I may start winning more tennis games or blossom into a more loving and supportive parent. I become more masterly at whatever I practice.

I upgrade my communication skills. I listen more attentively. I become comfortable with speaking in public and giving constructive feedback. I advocate respectfully for my needs and resolve conflicts peacefully.

I strengthen my body. I run faster and lift heavier weights. I increase my flexibility and balance.

I develop my hobbies. I set aside time for enriching activities that engage my mind and express my creativity. I play musical instruments or group sports. I paint landscapes or make birdhouses out of wood or recycled materials.

I accomplish more at work. I become more efficient at performing routine tasks. I deliver higher quality products and services. I contribute greater value to team projects and demonstrate compelling leadership.

I deepen my spirituality. I meditate, pray, and study consistently. I enjoy a deeper connection with the divine and my spiritual friends.

Today, I devote more time and energy to practice. I focus on the areas where I need to grow and watch my efforts pay off.
