Each morning, when you walk out the front door and go into the world, remember who you are.
One trick for me is that on my way to the front door, I have a mantra that I say. “Every day in every way, I’m getting better and better”. I repeat that a few times as I’m putting on my shoes, gathering up my bags and opening the door.
Sometimes, I may do a variation of it, if there’s something I’m looking to focus on during the day. It always starts with “Every day, in every way….” then I fill in the blank:
This mantra reminds me that things in life aren’t permanent and that I can change and improve them.
When you leave your house knowing, who you are, what you stand for, what your purpose is, it makes decisions that come up in the day easier. For instance, someone asks something from you and if it’s within who you are, you may say yes. If it goes against your moral code, you will probably say no. However, if you aren’t sure who you are, you may end up saying yes to something you don’t want to.
This is especially important to remind your kids when they leave. Tell them as they walk out the door, to remember who they are. If they don’t know, they can easily be swayed by their friends and peer pressured.
When you walk out the door tomorrow, remember who you are.
