10 mantras to inspire and focus you on your book publishing goals
Having trouble coming up with a mantra to assist you keeping on track?
Not sure which mantra that you could use to inspire and focus you to write and publish your business book?
While the following are not strictly mantras in the traditional sense, they are a great starting point to get you thinking about what your mantra could be. Particularly, if ‘om ma ha’ does not resonate with you, or you are yet to learn sanscript.
Get it done.
One step at a time. This is a marathon not a sprint. Set achievable goals, then when you look back you will be amazed how far you have travelled.
Make each day worth it.
You are the only person who knows what you want. Others will try to push their agendas onto your to do list. Learn how to say no thank you.
Listen to your ideas.
Keep the good ones and let the others rest. Sometimes a bad idea today can be a great one tomorrow.
Keep it simple.
What are the basics that you need to do to make this happen?
You’ve got this.
Leverage your strengths. There are things that you are great at use these to your advantage.
Follow a process.
Find the way in which you peak with your thinking and when you need down time. We all have a pattern and matching your tasks to the times when you are at the best can see you get twice as much down. For me I need to walk outside to get my brain started. Have a look at the routines set by people like Tesla, Stephen King, Roald Dahl, Madonna, Charles Darwin. Perhaps these can assist you to model your own.
Challenge your self each day.
Flow happens when you challenge yourself, you need to be stretched and under pressure to reach a state of flow. Diamonds are made under pressure, remind yourself of that when it feels like things are tough.
Believe in you.
If you don’t believe in you, why would others? Tell ‘self doubt’ to take a rain check.
Leave a legacy.
One day you won’t be here to tell your story. Make the time to leave your mark in a way that builds others and makes the world a better place.
Live a life worth living. See quotes below for further clarification.
Building a mantra for you can be a simple way to set your mind into a positive framework. Which in turn, allows you to find opportunities, in what you do each day. Then with your focus set on writing and publishing a book you will make it happen and do what you need to do, no matter where you are, and no matter what you have done before.
Set your focus and write and publish your business book.
At the moment I am listening to the audio book version of The One Thing by Gary Keller with Jay Papasan.
One of the passages in the book particularly resonates with me at the moment (perhaps because I am almost half way to 90)
‘A life worth living might be measured in many ways, but the one way that stands above all others is living a life of no regrets.’
This also reminds me of this Mark Twain attributed quote:
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed in the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
We only have one life and one opportunity.
Will you take the opportunity to leave a legacy and write and publish a book about your business expertise.
I certainly hope so.
Live a life of no regrets.
