This is my daily 'mantra'. It's comprised of many quotes taken from famous people and around the web (it's not original, but it's powerful). Wake up in the morning and say this to yourself:
Today I will do what others won't, so tomorrow I will accomplish what others can't.
Successful people get ahead during the time that other people waste.
I don't waste time, for time is what life is comprised of.
To live is the rarest thing in the world, and I'm gonna live fully until I die.
At Noon, say this to yourself when things get hard and you get discouraged:
Put up with adversity now to set the stage of my future life as a champion.
I have to increase my will, my fortitude, my enthusiasm, and my energy to move forward.
Welcome the fight, for the struggle itself will not only teach me new things, it will push me to do better.
Right before you go to bed, say this to yourself to fuel your body and mind for the day ahead:
I moved my life, my career and my relationships forward today.
I did this, and this, and this, and this . . .
I am one step closer to my goals (even though we sometimes have to do the '2 steps forward, 1 step back' dance).
I have a roof over my head, I am not hungry, I am healthy. And I have myself and the wonderful people around me to thank for this.
Feel free to use my 'mantra' or come up with your own for 2012. Trust me — you will MOVE MOUNTAINS.
