Personality Type Seven: The Generalist
The Hyperactive, Uninhibited Type

I now release...

  • all reckless and destructive impulses.
  • feeling that I will be overwhelmed by anxiety.
  • all compulsions and addictions.
  • burning myself out by trying to satisfy all of my desires.
  • running away from the consequences of my actions.
  • insulting or abusing others to vent my frustrations.
  • allowing my insecurities to drive me into dangerous situations and behavior.
  • sacrificing my health and happiness for instant gratification.
  • being demanding and impatient with others.
  • fearing that there will not be enough for me.
  • always feeling that I need more.
  • wanting every moment to be exciting and dramatic.
  • escaping from myself through distractions and constant activity.
  • letting my lack of self-discipline ruin my opportunities.
  • overextending myself with more than I can do well.
  • believing that external things will make me happy.

I now affirm...

  • that I am happiest when I am calm and centered.
  • that I can say no to myself without feeling deprived.
  • that there will be enough for me of whatever I need.
  • that I am resilient in the face of setbacks.
  • that I find satisfaction in ordinary things.
  • that I stay with projects until I complete them.
  • that I care deeply about people and am committed to their happiness.
  • that there is a spiritual dimension to my life.
  • that I am profoundly grateful to be alive.
