Words are powerful! And if you get them right, such as using a great daily mantra, then you really can get your day off to a storming start.
Check out these 6 great meditation mantras that you can use on a daily basis.
1. I am stronger than my excuses
Because, simply – you are! So whatever it is that you keep postponing (be it going to the gym, sorting out the garage, taking unworn clothes to charity – or perhaps something a little more life changing), then remember that it’s only you that’s stopping it becoming reality.
So if you want to get that qualification so you can apply for a promotion or better job – then do it! Because you – yes YOU – really are stronger than any of the excuses you can make up.
2. This too shall pass
This is a mantra for when life’s going a bit awry. Because no matter what’s going on – no matter how bad it is, eventually it will be history. Life has a funny way of doing that…!
So keep reminding yourself that whatever’s happening in your life right now, the world keeps turning, and time keeps marching on. And however bad things are at this moment, they really will become a thing of the past.
3. Just to be alive is a grand thing
Because hey, the alternative isn’t so appealing… You’re alive, smelling the clean air (or smog, or pollution – depending on where you live. But you get the sentiment). Your future is stretching out in front of you and, no matter what you might think, it really is a blank canvas just waiting to be filled.
So rejoice in the fact that you’re alive. And make the most of every single minute.
4. I change my thoughts, I change my world
These words are truly powerful. Because the way you think really does color your world. For instance, if you feel that the whole world is against you – then guess what? It really will seem that way. But if instead you view such problems as ‘challenges’ that you need to overcome, then you’re actually telling yourself that you CAN get past them. It might just take a little effort.
So if it feels like negativity is starting to overcome you, take a step back and see what you can do to change that. It’s your life – and you deserve for it to be a happy one. So change the way you think about ‘stuff’, and you’ll be amazed at the positive effect it has on your whole being.
5. With change comes opportunity
Sometimes we have no control over change in our lives. You’ve been made redundant, or your relationship’s come to an end… Whatever it might be, it can seem devastating. But rather than dwelling on what’s happened, it’s far more positive to view this as a new door opening – a new chapter (enough cliché’s already!) – in other words, an opportunity for all sorts of new and good things to happen.
Sure, it might not be what you’ve planned – but no matter. Because opportunity is a wonderful thing. So embrace and move forward. And in a few weeks or months, you’ll wonder what on earth you were worrying about.
6. I matter
This is a good mantra for the times when you might be suffering a little self-doubt. And hey – we all do, not matter how many folks might try to convince you differently. So when those tendrils of anxiety creep in, repeat this affirmation over and over. Because you really do matter – A LOT!
