3 Mantras to Inhale Conviction and Exhale Doubt

October 03, 2020 – Clarice Oyales

When a nail-biting and knee-shaking situation turns up, a willful one-liner can harness the strong energy you need to boost your confidence.

So when you find yourself wanting to turn and go back, repeat a mantra that will force you to take the next step and finish what you are here for.

Looking for a short but strong mantra to live by? Below are 3 mantras that can instantly summon courage and get rid of hesitation.

“I step into my power regardless of what anyone else thinks.”
A push-into-the-light mantra most of us need especially when we tend to hide ourselves in the dark and dim our lights just because we feel it’s too blinding for others. Well, my friend, this one-liner will empower us to ‘emit the light we feel compelled to shine’. No more hiding, no more backing down; show them what you’ve got!

“I am born for this.”
This line fuels your determination and drive to pursue your passion. If you know deep in your heart that whatever you end up doing is what you see yourself doing for the rest of your life, then this mantra finishes the task. Repeat this until you convince yourself that this is the path for you and you are to take this road.

“There is strength in struggle.”
Look at struggle as a heavy rain and strength as a rainbow. Pain, ache, and hardship aren’t all there is in struggle, there is also endurance, patience, and afterwards strength. Thus, look at struggle as an opportunity to grow and get stronger – physically, mentally, and emotionally.


You are capable. When life tells you otherwise, remember that the power is already within you. You just have to utter and repeat it.
