This month, our mission was to set a mantra – something to inspire and empower us in our lives. The hardest part isn’t coming up with the affirmation. The tough part is remembering to do it, and do it often enough that is sticks to your psyche.
I began the month intending to tell myself: “Everything always works out, and it just keeps getting better and better“. But early on I realized that I didn’t need to hear this . . . I’d already learned it (woo-hoo!). Instead, I found myself very inspired by reader Sarah’s “I am fearless“. Short, sweet, and totally important.
“I am fearless” has become more than just this month’s slogan; it’s become the foundation of my 2011 plan. As I always like to say, “Dream Big. No, BIGGER”, and that’s what I intend to do next year. I’m putting myself out there and taking risks and stepping outside my comfort zone, and I need to be prepared at my core. I need to be solid fearless.
A mantra isn’t something you pick up and then put away in a single month. It’s a process you start, and tweak, and fine tune over time. So how has your month gone? And more importantly, do you feel like you’ll keep going?
