Success is something we all strive for. We look at others and wonder how they became so successful, and ask how we can get that same success. It is possible for you to lead a happy and successful life, you just need to know what you want out of life and apply some mantras for success. Mantras are often-repeated words or phrases that hold truth. In order to create your own success you need to find particular words and phrases that hold true for your life and personality.
There is a lot that goes into success, and success does not just happen overnight. In addition to these affirming mantras, you will need additional tools for your own success. Learn these tools through this course that we offer. The course will not only help you if you are searching for professional successes, but it will also teach you how to get success in your personal life as well. In fact, some mantras for success will be a focus that you will learn and will be able to keep with you.
Crush Your Weaknesses
Since mantras are key words and phrases that hold truth, the first step in creating your own mantras for success is stepping back and taking a look at what some of your weaknesses are. Once you have discovered them and confidently know what they are, you can start working toward giving yourself mantras for success that can help you overcome those weaknesses.
One weakness that we can all relate to is self-confidence. We can be confident in many areas of our lives, but still have a couple places where we lack in self-confidence. The key to overcoming that is to know that we as humans will never be perfect, but we can always work on ourselves to be a better person than we were the day before. For those times where we have those issues with self-confidence, we can apply these mantras and say them to ourselves over and over again:
- “I am enough.”
- “I am not who I’m going to be. I am always becoming.”- Ruby Dee
- “I never loved another person the way I loved myself.” – Mae West
- “You’re always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company.” – Diane Von Furstenberg
Carry these self-confidence-boosting quotes with you, whether they are written on paper or memorized. Anytime you are feeling down, repeat them and know you are always working toward success. Since happiness and success frequently go together, this course will help you to find not only success, but happiness and fulfillment. It will also teach you the skill of getting what you want in life, as well as enjoying the process.
Make Goals for Yourself
The easiest way to track your success is to make goals for yourself — lots of goals. Make little goals and big ones. That way, when you reach the little ones, you will feel more confident about your abilities. Use people you identify with as part of your mantra for success. If there is someone with your talent living a more successful life than you, your mantra could be “If ___ can do this, so can I.” Say that to yourself every day and it will give you the drive you need to reach your goals. You can also always compete with yourself. If there is a goal you are particularly proud of, use the mantra, “If I did this, than I can definitely do ___.” Competition is a healthy part of life, and even more so when the competition is yourself. Use your goals as motivators and repeat that mantra for success so you can out-success your old self. For more thoughts on success and achieving goals, this blog post offers great insight on competing with yourself and reaching personal goals.
Mantras for success and meditation go hand in hand. While you can repeat your personal mantra over and over in your head as you are getting ready in the morning, driving to work and doing any activity, meditation allows you to stop and completely focus on that mantra. This form of meditation is not difficult to do, either. All you need is to find a relaxing environment where you can close your eyes, breathe deeply and repeat your mantra to yourself over and over. It can be for five minutes or 20 minutes, however long you think you need to give yourself. And your mantra does not have to stay the same, either. Depending on where you are in your life, you can change it up. Some examples of mantras you can repeat during your meditation include:
- “I can reach my goal.”
- “I have the ability to overcome my fears.”
- “I have the ability to be the best person I can be.”
- “These are the things I like about myself: ____”
If you want to go further with meditation and calm your mind of fears getting in the way of your success, we offer this course that features meditation for everyone. Meditation doesn’t just help you focus on your mantras for success, it also clears your mind, reduces stress and helps you to sleep, all things that aid in success.
Once you have your mantra down and are focused, you can apply other teachings to your foundation for success. For example, in this course teaches us that the things we want and the things we do are very different. The course focuses on what you want for yourself a year from now and has a month-by-month process to get you to be the person you want to be. A year seems far away, but it’s amazing what can happen in a year if you stick to your mantras for success and work on reaching your goals.
