Create a Mantra for Yourself to use when you are not
feeling strong

It's common for sports teams and the like to have mottos that help them to keep fighting during times when it's not easy, such as during a hard practice, or during a game where they have fallen behind.

It's helpful for you to have a mantra for yourself that you can use to 'pick yourself up' when you are having one of those days that you feel less-than-inspired. Rather than hop on Facebook and whine about your predicament, what if you could boost yourself in a moment?


Here are some ideas for a mantra of your own:

     'I am stronger than my obstacle.'

     'I keep going even when it isn't easy.'

     'I never regret a workout--so I do them every time.'

     'I only fill my body with nutritious, healthy fuel.'

     'If I mess up, I forgive myself and move on right away.'


It may seem corny, but try it! Having a mantra really works. Try using your mantra as wallpaper on your phone or computer, or hang it on your bathroom mirror. 'Fake it 'till you make it' really works! Your brain doesn't know the difference between what you think and what is real, so make sure you are thinking the right stuff!
