Life is full of changes and surprises. Sometimes on your path you may be faced with obstacles that can take you into some negative thoughts.
Keeping a positive mindset when things get challenging can be a little tricky especially when you are feeling defeated. That negative backtalk somehow finds a way to creep up in your thoughts and can bring you down.
It’s not unusual to turn to family and friends for some positive reinforcement to keep you on track. But rather than looking outwards for support, why not be prepared with your own pep talk?
You can do this by scripting your own motto.
Before any backtalk can come up, you can call upon your motto to give you a little motivation and energy to push you through and keep you positive.
Sometimes that short inner statement is all you need. You just need to put some thought into it.
You can think like a big corporation for example, Nike’s, “Just do it,” and Loreal’s “Because you’re worth it.” These lines are great injections of motivational energy.
Perhaps you want to see yourself as a superhero.
From Superman’s, “Up, Up and Away,” to Buzz Light Year’s, “To Infinity and Beyond.” Their statements are their personal calls to move them into action.
Songs like “I will Survive” or “Rise Up” can have some great positive messages as well.
Whatever motto you choose, it should be able to shift your mood in an instant and take you to that new level. It is your back up to keep you in the positive mindset when you need it most.
What words speak to you?
Creating your personal message to yourself is one of the most powerful tools you can have in results achievement. Taking a little time now can save you a lot of energy later.
“You got this.”
