Mantras are trick I use to change a negative thought to a positive one whenever I am going into a challenging situation. From Spartan Races to speeches, to teaching a new class, they have helped me remain cool, calm and confident in spite of the stress I may feel. When things get tough, a single thought in the right direction can be all you need to steer yourself back on track.

Last weeks bonus for the Gumsaba and Cyto Challenges was to create a mantra to carry with you you through a workout, (or get you to a workout you don’t want to go to!). Really though, it wasn’t about the workout. It was about giving yourself a chance to empower yourself with thought, to make thought in to action! It was about making space between you and any negative thought so you might find a better way to deal with all that life presents.

These are some of the mantras that people came up with for the challenge. Inspiring, funny, courageous, they all speak to a higher self, to the high road within!

Do you have a mantra you use when times are tough? Please share it in the comments!

🙂 Coach M

Today will be what it is. 
I will be who I am. 
There will be beauty in both. 

F#%$ sugar!

There’s more where that came from!

A secret to happiness is letting every situation be what it is, instead of what you want it to be. 

Keep Going!

Embrace your challenges with an open heart, because through every challenge strength forms. 

You’ve done this before you can do a it a little better this time

Inner peace comes when you relax your body and quiet your mind.

If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you. 

If you wait for perfect conditions you will never get anything done. 

Push harder than yesterday if you want a different tomorrow. 

Open hearts and open minds open doors of opportunity. 

When in doubt, rock on.
