Summary:

Step 1

Go to the video icon above and watch Nick Vujicic and the real-life challenges he's faced since birth.

Take a moment and list everything and everyone you enjoy.

Girls, you are smart and beautiful. Really!

Guys, you da man! You have what it takes. Seriously.

Imagine how you'd approach life day-to-day as someone who understands their intrinsic value. Get a mental image of that person - the real you.

Describe this person and note how this view of yourself is different from the way you typically see yourself?

Step 4

If you stay connected to the image you had of your intrinsic value, then what activities would change?

What would you do more of or less of?

Step 5

How would you let them treat you?

Step 6

When you realize you have tremendous value simply because you are you, then you'll approach life with strength and confidence, refusing to allow anyone to steal the joy that comes from appreciating who you are and what you have to offer the world.

On a scale of 1 to 10, where would you say you are now in relation to understanding your value with (1)being not at all and (10) being certain?

Step 7

What one act can you do today that would make you see yourself in a more hopeful light?

Step 8

Go do it.
