Successful men and women often use an affirmative statement, which they say to themselves privately. As times pass on, they observe there is tremendous rise in their self-motivation. So evolved the concept known as personal mantra, which is part and parcel of day-to-day life of leading men and women. This blog post proposes to highlight key ideas on what is your personal mantra.
Personal mantra is defined as a word, phrase or a sentence that you say to yourself with an intention of bringing inspiration and motivation in you. There are few aliases for personal mantra. Affirmatory word, inspirational phrase and personal dictum are some of these. In most cases this personal mantra is kept closed to one’s heart, to avoid others peeping on the reasons for one’s success. There is wide spread confusion between personal mantra with a personal motto. While a motto is kind of personal slogan said in public, personal mantra is exclusively a private affair.
Anchored primarily on materialistic benefit, personal mantra links your body with your mind. Inner workings of the mind is the key plank in the structure of personal mantra along with outer workings on your body energy. Pluses of personal mantra in your physical side include, heightening body activity, infusing strength into your body, functioning as tonic when you are stressed and tired and keeping your overall physique in topping condition. On the mental area, it uplifts moods, keeps your mind alert and active, builds the bulwark to face life challenges and smoothens your mind when necessary.
A two-track functionality accompanies a personal mantra. One track allows you to increase perception of yourself. Where are you, what you can do, how you can do and what result you can expect are aspects you perceive when using a personal mantra. It is followed by the second track where you get inspiration, motivation and encouragement in a single dose to carry out the task you have in hand.
Although you can pick and choose a proverb, maxim, adage or historical statement in classical languages such as Latin, Hebrew, Arabic or Sanskrit to be your personal mantra, the best course of action is to group few words of your own language to make up your own mantra. You can also do an assessment of your personal cosmics, that is, body and mental features arising from your background, environment and personality characteristics that are unique to yourself. This cosmic analysis will indicate your strengths and weaknesses. Thereafter, you frame your personal mantra that maximizes your strength and minimizes your weaknesses.
Assume you are often reprimanded for doing shoddy job and you find that your cosmics indicate that you lack the art of perfection, and then you can pounce on this simple personal mantra:
“What I do, I’ll do best”
