* Live your life on the basis of what is possible, right and good for you instead of what you or others think you should do.
* Find out what you want and what you are good at, value those, and take actions designed to fulfill your potential.
* Respect your own needs. Identify what really fulfills you – not just immediate gratification. Respecting your deeper needs will increase your sense of worth and well-being.
* Make decisions. Practice making and implementing positive choices flexibly but firmly, and trust yourself to deal with the consequences.
