Having a strong mentality can help us get through in life, especially during tough times

Developing a strong mentality is necessary as adversities in life are inevitable. To be able to persevere even in tough times, creating an inner dialogue that will help build your mental muscle will be valuable. 

The use of mantras is a great way to keep a positive mindset and wash away the negative thoughts that hinders you from achieving your goals and reaching your potential.

Here are some mantras that you can use every day to keep you motivated or even when you are feeling down and overwhelmed. 

“Living according to my values is what really matters.” 

Not everyone you meet in your life will align with your decisions. Rather than trying to please everyone, it is much better to accept it and just focus your energy on yourself. Always keep in mind that it is not your job to get everyone to like you. 

By trying to please everyone, you will only end up physically and mentally exhausted. What’s more important is to stay true to your values, even if you’re the only one fighting for it. Doing this will make you realize who you truly are and the principles you believe in. 

“I am in control of how I think, feel, and behave.”

You are in control of your thoughts, feelings, and behavior. Once you acknowledge this, the confidence and trust in yourself will eventually grow. Quit putting the blame on others as this will not get you better. 

Try to focus on accepting how you think, feel, and behave and be responsible enough once you’ve made a mistake. Remember that only you are in control of these things and not anybody else. 

“Failure is part of the road to success.”

Every failure is an opportunity to learn and grow. By going through this, you are building a better and stronger version of yourself. It will also make you humble and compassionate to others who are also going through the same course.

Bear in mind to not beat yourself up every time you fail. It is perfectly normal, and it also happened to everyone, even the most successful people we admire. 

These positive affirmations might be too simple to change your life, but it will definitely change your way of thinking. And having a healthy mindset will be a good thing to have along the way, especially during challenging times.
