A mantra is pure intentions and genuine kindness. 

A mantra is traditionally a short sound, word, or even phrase spoken in Sanskrit and used for meditation purposes. 

It’s uttered in repetition to help keep our mind and body focused on the moment.

And since ancient times, mantras have been considered sacred and to be calming sounds, which is why you’ll often hear the most common “om” used to wind down the end of a yoga class. 


But in our modern-day and age, the term “mantra” has been co-opted to include self-affirming statements that give us the strength and confidence to face the world.

But the underlying purpose is still the same: It’s a way to focus our intentions and calm our minds.  Today it can be a statement of intentional change or new thought from reality.

Life tends to open our minds and educate us as time passes. We gradually realize how much nonsense we have wasted our energy and resources on. And we begin to see more beauty in letting go...

Take this to heart, and start making more time and space for your own happiness and peace of mind. Your needs matter. And if you don’t value yourself, look out for yourself, and stick up for yourself today, you’re sabotaging yourself.

Also, keep in mind that it is possible to take care of your own needs while simultaneously caring for those around you. And once your needs are met, you will likely be far more capable of helping those who need you most.

So today...

1. Start being more polite to yourself. – Think about it... If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow that person to be your friend?

2. Start filtering out the noise in your life. – Be careful about who you give the microphone and stage to in your life. Don’t just listen to the loudest voices. Listen to the truest ones.

3. Start letting grace have the last word. – Most drama isn't worth it. And we often only lose the arguments our pride insists on winning. So remember, when it’s more important to win arguments than love people, we need to start all over again with our faith and priorities.

4. Start steadying yourself with simple rituals. – Whenever life feels like an emotional roller coaster, steady your mind with simple rituals. Make the bed. Water the plants. Rinse off your own bowl and spoon. Simplicity attracts calmness and wisdom.

5. Start turning the pages that need to be turned. I can tell you from my own life experiences that almost everything that has happened helped me grow somehow. Painful experiences taught me key lessons I didn’t think I needed to know. But now I know... No book is just one chapter. No chapter tells the whole story. No hardship defines who we are. So keep turning the pages that need to be turned in your life.

The bottom line is, despite the real-world challenges we all collectively face, the biggest and most complex obstacle you will likely have to overcome on a daily basis is your own mind...

YES, YOU CAN THINK BETTER, which means you can tap into your inner strength and ultimately live better, one day at a time.

In Touch with True Emotions

Our bellies can be wonderful monitors of our emotional health, and the truth can always be found there.

So often, emotions that we long to express get stored in our bodies instead.

The space where this most often happens is in our bellies.


Rather than telling people, or even ourselves, the way we truly feel, we may stuff our true feelings deep inside of us, where they take up space until we are ready to let them go.

Stuffing our feelings in our bellies may feel like the "safe" response since we then don't really have to deal with our emotions.

Yet, doing so can actually be detrimental to our emotional well-being and physical health. 

One way to connect with and release your emotions is to do a focused exercise with your stomach area.

Take a moment to center yourself with some deep breathing and quiet meditation, relaxing your body fully and turning off the chatter in your brain.

With your right hand on your stomach, tell yourself three times: "Please reveal to me my true emotions."

Listen for the answers.

Repeat the exercise as many times as you would like, allowing yourself to drop deeper into your body each time. 

Notice any physical response in the stomach area, whether you have a warm, relaxed feeling in the middle of your body or if you feel tight knots in response to any emotions that do come up.

You may even want to write down any answers that come to you. Remember that the body doesn't lie.

Releasing our pent-up feelings from our bellies can prevent disease and allow us to live more authentic and expressive lives.

Sometimes, if too much emotional energy builds up inside of us, a blowout can result that can cause discomfort.

You can help to alleviate this compression by doing the same exercise and adding sound to your emotional release.

The more guttural the sounds released through your mouth, the more emotions you are likely letting go of.

Releasing your emotions from your belly doesn't have to be painful and hard; rather, it can be organic and effortless.

It's important not to judge whatever comes up for you.

We tend to stuff our feelings in our bellies when we are ashamed of them or not ready to express them.

There is nothing wrong with having feelings, whatever they may be.

You can't help your feelings; if anything, you can help yourself by acknowledging the truth of your emotions so you can set yourself free.



52 Good Morning Mantras (That Will Change Your Life)

Written by

52 Morning Meditations for a Peaceful, Productive Year

“What day is it?” asked Pooh.
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
“My favorite day,” said Pooh.


Here are 52-morning mantras – one for each week of the year (note: you can start your year of morning mantras anytime you want).

I choose one of these mantras every Sunday morning and sit quietly for two minutes, repeating it silently in my mind as if I were meditating.

I also write it on a post-it note and stick it next to my computer monitor for the duration of the week. This weekly ritual has helped reduce unnecessary stress in my life by reminding me to keep things simple, peaceful, and in perspective.

  1. The secret to being grateful is no secret. You choose to be grateful. Then you do it again and again. Every day. When you forget, begin again.
  2. If you worry too much about what might be and wonder too long about what might have been, you will ignore and completely miss what is.
  3. You don’t know what the future will bring. So your best strategy for living is to make the best and most positive use of the present.
  4. Two things, more than anything else, define you daily: Your patience when you are struggling, and your attitude when you are not.
  5. Patience is not about waiting – it’s the ability to keep a positive attitude while working hard for what you believe in.
  6. It’s not selfish to enjoy life. What’s selfish is to insist on being negative despite all the positive possibilities available to you.
  7. Before you waste it on anger, resentment, spite, or envy, think of how precious and irreplaceable your time is today. Positivity always pays!
  8. You may be exhausted. You may be discouraged. You may feel uncomfortable. No matter what, your best option is to move positively forward.
  9. Those times when you don’t feel like being positive are the times when choosing to be positive makes the biggest difference.
  10. It’s impossible to accomplish what you assume you cannot do. Be careful not to become a prisoner of your own assumptions.
  11. If you truly wish to improve your self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth, stop allowing other people to be responsible for them.
  12. Your track record for getting through hard days is 100% so far.
  13. When you fail to get what you want, consider that it just might be a blessing in disguise, enabling you to have something even better, soon.
  14. Use your struggles and frustrations today to motivate you rather than annoy you. You are in control of the way you look at life.
  15. What may seem like a setback is really an opportunity for you to learn something new, and develop a more effective, more realistic strategy.
  16. Again and again, remind yourself why. With a strong enough reason why you’ll be able to do what’s required at any time and in any circumstance.
  17. Be determined and ambitious, but not out of a desperate sense of need – do it out of a love for the possibilities. Enjoy your journey!
  18. Do your thing with passion and integrity even if folks don’t notice you. We do what we do not for applause, but because we know it’s right.
  19. If the grass looks greener on the other side… Stop staring. Stop comparing. Stop complaining and start watering the grass you’re standing on.
  20. When you are lost in worry, it is easy to mistake your worries for reality, instead of recognizing that they are just thoughts.
  21. Whatever your challenge is, worrying about it won’t help. Either do something to address it or do something to let it go.
  22. Unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you accept that it’s over, you cannot move forward.
  23. Most people make themselves unhappy simply by finding it impossible to accept life just as it is presenting itself right now.
  24. You can’t calm the storm, so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself, and the storm will pass.
  25. Nothing is permanent. When you understand this, you can do almost anything you wish because you’re not trying to hold onto anything anymore.
  26. The most powerful changes happen when you take control of what you do have power over, instead of craving control over everything you don’t. (Read The Untethered Soul.)
  27. Too often we see ourselves as the victim, rather than the creator, of our present situation. This is why our life is so difficult to change.
  28. When you are no longer able to change a situation, you are challenged to change yourself. And that changes everything.
  29. Being happy and grateful doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.
  30. Your life will improve only when you take small chances, and the first and most difficult chance you can take is, to be honest with yourself.
  31. It’s not what you say to everyone else that determines your life; it’s what you whisper to yourself that has the greatest power.
  32. Awareness is not just noticing what’s going on around you, but what’s going on within you as well. Keep your eyes open and your Self in mind.
  33. Be careful about who you give the microphone and stage to in your life, especially when times are tough. Don’t just listen to the loudest voice. Listen to the truest one.
  34. Don’t let someone who has done nothing tell you how to do your thing. Don’t let small minds convince you that your dreams are too big.
  35. You can’t base your ideas of success and happiness on other people’s opinions and expectations.
  36. Sometimes you need to distance yourself to see things clearly again.
  37. Don’t be scared to walk alone down the path less traveled, and don’t be scared to love every minute of it.
  38. Wherever your heart is – wherever your truth is – that’s where you will find your reason to smile.
  39. Don’t let not knowing how it’ll end keep you from beginning today. Uncertainty chases us out into the open where life’s true magic is waiting.
  40. You can’t be afraid to have certain conversations. It’s better to talk and find out than to keep going and get nowhere. Communication is key.
  41. No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a peaceful way to live, and a beautiful legacy to leave behind.
  42. Changing the world doesn’t necessitate earth-shattering feats but rather, doing small things with great love. Think simple, not spectacular.
  43. Our days are always happier and more fulfilling when we give people around us a bit of our heart rather than a piece of our mind.
  44. Don’t judge someone just because they’ve made different mistakes than you have.
  45. When you choose to see the good in others, you end up finding the good in yourself.
  46. Set an example. Treat everyone with kindness and respect, even those who are rude to you – not because they are nice, but because you are.
  47. Be thankful for all the rude, obnoxious, and difficult people you meet in life. They serve as important reminders of how NOT to live.
  48. There are no permanent jobs on this planet. We are all interning here. Learn from everyone, remain humble, and don’t forget to have a good time.
  49. There’s no such thing as a self-made person. Someone else believed, encouraged, and invested in you. Be grateful and be that someone for others.
  50. Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in your journey.
  51. Every day is a new beginning; treat it that way. Stop thinking about what could have been and start looking at what CAN be. (Marc and I discuss this in more detail in the “Passion and Growth” chapter of 1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently.)
  52. Right now it all starts over. The possibilities ahead are endless. Be strong enough to let go, wise enough to move forward, diligent enough to work hard, and patient enough to wait for what you’ve earned.

It’s uttered in repetition to help keep our mind and body focused on the moment.

And since ancient times, mantras have been considered sacred and to be calming sounds, which is why you’ll often hear the most common “om” used to wind down the end of a yoga class. 


But in our modern-day and age, the term “mantra” has been co-opted to include self-affirming statements that give us the strength and confidence to face the world.

But the underlying purpose is still the same: It’s a way to focus our intentions and calm our minds.

So rather than focusing this article on traditional Sanskrit mantras, we’ll explore some daily phrases to say in the morning and keep repeating them throughout the day.

If you focus your mind on these simple mottos, they should help set you up for success and positivity!


General Wellness

1. “My mind is brilliant. My body is healthy. My spirit is tranquil.”



2. “I create my own path and walk it with joy.”

3. “My positive thoughts guide me to new heights.”

4. “I am conquering my fears and becoming stronger each day.”

5. “I will have a good day because it’s my choice.”

6. “I am not afraid to be wrong.”



7. “My body is a temple. I keep my temple clean.”

8. “I hold the key to better health through eating better and exercise.”

9. “Good health is a practice, and I have patience.”

10. “I listen to my body and give it what it needs.”

11. “Every cell in my body is alive and beautiful.”



12. “My potential is limitless, and I choose where to spend my energy.”

13. “While I support others, I also ask for help when needed.”

14. “I surrender to the flow and have faith in the ultimate good.”

15. “I will speak with confidence and self-assurance.”

16. “My commitment to myself is unbreakable.”


Although we’ve broken up these mantras into a few different categories, they’re all connected to the power of your mind.

Because without controlled thinking and positive belief, your spirit and body couldn’t make any progress.

It’s our choice to think and feel positive, and our lives will follow shortly!

Remember to repeat whichever phrase you choose over and over again — and don’t be surprised if you start to see a big change.

Common Fears

Our minds are powerful, and moving into fear is a common experience that we can each look at and change.

Everyone has fears -- it is a natural part of being human.

Fear can protect us from harm by sending a rush of adrenaline to help us physically deal with potential danger.

But there are times when fear may keep us from participating fully in life.

Once we realize that fear is a state of mind, we can choose to face our fears, change our minds, and create the life we want to live. 

Our minds are powerful tools to be used by our higher selves; like computers, storing and using data to make certain connections between thought and response.

We have the ability to observe these and choose differently.

No matter where the fear came from, we can create new connections by choosing new thoughts. When our souls and minds are in alignment, we create a new experience of reality.

This journey requires many small steps, as well as patience and courage through the process.


Here's an example: You decide to overcome your fear of driving on the freeway.

Your plan of action starts with examining your thoughts and finding a new way of seeing the situation.

When you're ready, you enlist a calm companion to support you as you take the first step of merging into the slow lane and using the first exit.

Your heart may be racing, but your confidence will be boosted by the accomplishment.

Repeat this until you are comfortable, with or without help, and then drive one exit further.

When you are ready, you can try driving in the middle lane, for longer periods each time, until you find yourself going where you want to go.

This gradual process is similar to conquering any fear, but if you find it overwhelming, you can always seek the help of a professional.

You may think that you are the only one with a particular fear, that nobody else could possibly be scared of ordinary things such as water, heights, public speaking, or flying.

These types of fears are very common, and you can have great success overcoming them.


Remember, it is not the absence of fear but the courage to take action anyway that determines success.

When we learn to face our fears, we learn to observe our thoughts and feelings but not be ruled by them.

Instead, we choose how to shape the lives we want.

  • Less Pull from others means you cannot copy their positives, making it more likely you stay stuck longer.

A balanced lifestyle is simply a state of being, in which one has time and energy for obligations and pleasures.

Like pieces of a puzzle, the many different aspects of your being come together to form the person that you are.

You work and play, rest and expend energy, commune with your body and soul, exalt in joy, and feel sorrow.

Balance is the state that you achieve when all of the aspects of your life and self are in harmony. Your life force flows in a state of equilibrium because nothing feels out of sync.

 While balance is necessary to have a satisfying, energetic, and joyful life, only you can determine what balance means to you.

Achieving balance requires that you assess what is important to you.

The many demands of modern life can push us to make choices that can put us off balance and have a detrimental effect on our habits, relationships, health, and career.

In creating a balanced lifestyle, you must ascertain how much time and energy you are willing to devote to the different areas of your life.


To do so, imagine that your life is a house made up of many rooms.

Draw this house, give each part of your life its own room, and size each room according to the amount of importance you assign to that aspect of your life.

You can include family, solitude, activities that benefit others, healthy eating, indulgences, exercise, and working on yourself.


You may discover that certain elements of your life take up an inordinate amount of time, energy, or effort and leave you with few resources to nurture the other aspects of your life. 

You may want to spend less time on these activities and more on the ones that fulfill you. 

A balanced lifestyle is simply a state of being in which one has time and energy for obligations and pleasures, as well as time to live well and in a gratifying way.

With its many nuances, balance can be a difficult concept to integrate into your life.

Living a balanced existence, however, can help you attain a greater sense of happiness, health, and fulfillment.
