These positive phrases called “mantras” work much like affirmations. In fact, some people use the term interchangeably because the process is slightly different, but the goal is the same – to motivate and inspire you!
Success mantras help you think big and recognize transformation while surviving ups and downs and uncertain times.
Reaffirm your journey. Know that your happiness today and future success requires you to juggle, to focus, and to get it all done! That doesn’t mean continuing to over-schedule yourself and burn out. That means use the 8:8:8 process and manage your time well.
Mantras are statements or slogans you repeat. Sometimes a mantra is just a few disconnected but meaningful words that you repeat and maybe chant.
Typically affirmations are a few sentences and only spoken or read once. But not always.
Both are tools designed that help you connect with yourself with the intention of creating a change in your actions. Typically that action is a follow through of some sort. Maybe a promise to yourself such as:
- To study
- Or not procrastinate on a project.
- Maybe it’s to be more organized this semester.
- Creating simple videos as your own brand ambassador
- Or to spend 4 hours a week developing your business skills
- Or developing your business plan
These Fall semester mantras are geared toward your self-development and personal motivation while balancing school and your developing business.
How to say a mantra?
- Say them in a peaceful place.
- Say them out loud or in your head.
- Say, recite, chant, or sing them to music.
- Repeat them as many times as you want.
If you want stricter rules, recite them as is spiritual tradition 12, 17, 54, or 108 times.
Why 108? Traditionally mantras might be said using mala beads.
Set aside time. It can be in the morning or any time you can and want to be still and at peace for few moments.
