A mantra is an effective way to reinforce new patterns of thinking and make a mindset shift toward daily choices that better support our health.
I want. I can. I will.
is a foundational mantra we encourage coaching clients to repeat often as it holds so much power.
Let’s break it down…
The mantra’s power is rooted in the concept that one must begin any transformation journey with a solid desire for change (I want). Though it’s normal to have some ambivalence in the beginning, the desire to change must outweigh the momentum of staying stuck in unhealthy patterns.
A key success component in change is belief in one’s ability to choose differently (I can). As the famous quote by Henry Ford goes, “Whether you think you can or that you can’t, you are usually right.”
Mantra bracelets help new coaching clients reinforce mindset shifts to healthier choices.
A strong sense of determination and commitment to make changes is critical as well. When we connect to our personal values, our commitment multiplies and becomes like rocket fuel for our transformation journey (I will).
When combined with accountability and one-on-one support of coaching, these three pillars support us in making permanent changes that lead to a longer, active and healthy life with few limitations.
To your good health!
