What is your Mantra?
A mantra as define in the dictionary as
Many people also know mantras as affirmations which are phrases that one repeats to themselves until it becomes a changed reality. These are often new ideas or beliefs that one is trying to adopt to improve or change one’s life. These sayings, which turn into belief/behavior structures, are a continual process of reciting then to ones self until the consciousness adopts the new structure. Some of the common mantras are usually self- affirming structures such as: I believe in myself, I have the courage to do this, I am not afraid and I am…. and you fill in the rest. Other mantras are coping mechanisms to help us deal with life’s stressors. Here are some examples: enjoy the little things, live in the moment and there is always something to be grateful for. There are mantras that we intrinsically recite to ourselves: stay positive, focus on what matters, I can do this, do not react but listen are just a few.
Mantras should not be long expletive structures. The K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) is the most effective approach to a successful outcome. Affirmations cover all areas of your life from LOVE, health, wealth, career, happiness, hope, family, friends, past, present, future, and any other topic. One should not adopt more than 2-3 core mantras at a time. In this situation less is more for each self -affirmation core mantra is a life altering change. I am a firm believer that baby steps are always more productive then giant strides. The hope is that these mantras are a permanent life changing structure to improve you.
Positive life affirmations that are not core mantras can be adopted with open arms and in abundance. Some positive life mantras to live by are: this too shall pass, keep calm and carry on, do not sweat the small stuff, it is amazing the difference a day makes or tomorrow is another day.
To start acquiring a personal mantra one needs to ask themselves what do they want to improve or change? Then develop a phrase that is comfortable and easy to remember. Write it down and post it around your home and work. Then starting reciting it to yourself until it becomes a part of you. This is also a lesson in self-patience and tenacity. The more you work at reciting and adopting what you say to yourself the more it becomes a reality.
