    Sentence Completion Exercises on Self-Esteem, Responsibility

    Two lists of sentence completions are available at the web site of Nathaniel Branden, author of The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem:

    Working with Self-Esteem in Psychotherapy: Sentence Completion


    # If I bring more awareness to my life today
    # If I take more responsibility for my choices and actions today
    # If pay more attention to how I deal with people today
    # If I boost my energy level by 5% today

    Taking Responsibility: Sentence Completion Program (somewhat similar to the first list)


    # I feel most proud of myself when I
    # I feel least proud of myself when I
    # If I give myself credit for my willingness to struggle
    # If I give myself credit for my dedication to personal growth

    Personally, I find sentence completions to be the best part of any self-help workbook.

    Dr. Branden's site also has a lot of his essays and excerpts on self-esteem and self-accountability:

    I can summarize the key idea here as follows: Begin each day with two questions: What's good in my life? — and What needs to be done? The first question keeps us focused on the positives. The second reminds us that our life and well-being are our own responsibility.
