I’ve tried every affirmation and all the mantras under the sun – from Law of Attraction go-tos to positive thinking to mantras for meditation – and I’m going to let you in on my number one, never fail, go-to mantra that works for absolutely everything:
Inspirational, right? Actually it is, if you look at it the right way. In my experience, mantras and affirmations don’t usually work because part of you tends to know that they’re just not true. No matter how many times I say ‘I’m feeling confident and collected’ when I’m so nervous I’m sweating through my aluminum free hippie deodorant, my subconscious calls bullshit. To put it matter of factly: affirmations and mantras are a waste of time if you don’t already believe them 100%.
I’ll get into the secret to affirmations & mantras that really, truly work in a later post (there IS a secret and it seriously works all of the time, every time, no matter what) but for now, I wanted to present you with the one mantra that will change your experience every time you say it.
Now – think of all of the things that are bothering you about your current circumstances, right in this moment. Really envision them and the stress that they’re causing you. What feelings are you feeling? Anxiety? Nervousness? Pressure? Overwhelm? Fomo?
Now close your eyes, take a deep breath, and repeat after me:
Fuck it. Fuck it. Fuck it.
Say it, feel it, and believe it. It might still exist and it probably hasn’t changed, but fuck it; it’s not your problem anymore. You’re far too fabulous to worry about unpleasant things or let an unfortunate situation bring down your vibe.
Anytime things seem to suck and you don’t have time to find a solution, just say fuck it and move on. It’s a mantra that is guaranteed to make you smile a little bit and a mantra that will take at least a smidgen of that heavy weight off your shoulders.
Question: let me know in the comments what your go-to mantra or affirmation is that works for you 100% of the time.
