5 Motivational Mantras to Kick Off 2018
A lot of people tend to believe that writing New Year’s resolutions is just a gimmicky holiday ritual meant to make you feel more confident about your future.
This is only true if you write your resolutions with no clear intention to actually follow them.
Here’s some advice: Instead of wasting your time writing down a list of things that sound kind of nice, but not compelling enough for you to actually achieve, try to write down a list of mantras to shift your attitude and cultivate a spirit of achievement.
Here are 5 motivational mantras to make 2018 the year of success:
1. You Are Only As Powerful As Your Dream.
The secret to success doesn’t lie in playing it safe. It lies in taking risks and continuing to dream even after you’ve gained what you set out to achieve.
This is an excellent way to keep moving forward and maintaining your passion for what you love. Always be curious and stimulate your creativity by looking for exciting new opportunities to evolve personally and professionally.
2. There Are 365 Possibilities in a Year.
If you struggle with rejection or failure, this is a fantastic mantra to keep you motivated through trying times. Know the difference between quitting and failing.
3. If You Want It, Work For It.
The most inspirational success stories don’t come from the top. They come from hard-working nobodies who went against the odds to prove themselves.
So, if you want something really badly, never hesitate to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty.
4. The Best Way Finish a Project is to Start.
This one goes out to all the procrastinators. If you’re willing to put it off, you’re willing to delay success. The sooner you begin, the sooner you win.
5. Let Go of What You Are So You Can Become What You Might Be.
You are not what people say you are. You are not your job, your house, your car, your family.
You are an individual capable of achieving extraordinary things. The only way you can discover your true potential is to let go of preconceived notions of success and trust the Universe to teach you.
