Morning Mantras

Getting up every morning and repeating a favorite motivational mantra while you're in the shower or brushing your teeth may be just the thing you need to get your day off to a good start. The bathroom mirror is a great place to tape an inspirational poem or quote. If it's laminated, the shower is another good place. Once read, even glancing at it will provide you with an unconscious reminder of what you value and desire. A good self-esteem one to use is this: "I am me. In all this world there is no one else exactly like me. There are persons who have some parts like me, but no one adds up exactly like me. Therefore, everything that comes out of me is authentically mine because I alone chose it." You can make up your own, specific for a project at hand, such as, "Get organized and stay organized by finding a place for everything, and putting everything in its place," or choose something that is currently relevant from a book of quotations. You may want to use a gentle and supportive compliment to build your self-esteem, or a humorous remark that makes you chuckle. Below is a nice one I began using while writing this workbook. You may like it, too, and wish to use it for now or write your own below.
