Sometimes it's helpful to establish a mantra for yourself--something that's very personal, has deep meaning, and helps keep you focused on the path you want to take in life. A mantra by definition is a statement or word repeated frequently; a slogan for your life. Positive statements, motivating quotes, symbols, and verses of faith are often included in a mantra.

When you decide what your mantra is going to be, decide how to display it so you are reminded of it every day. Write it down, hang it up on your mirror, or take a photograph of something that reminds you of your mantra. Turn it into a piece of art for your room, or simply draw out your feelings. We have a great example to inspire you and get you thinking in the right direction.
