Personal Mottos

I’ve talked about a lot of things on this blog over the past year and today’s topic is unique because it involves doing something that most people avoid: Reinforcing your personal identity. I’m also in a fluffy kind of mood so this is the end result of a Slow Saturday…hehe. Who you are is who you want to be and as such, I believe that everyone should have a personal motto. For me, it’s coming up on the end of 2015, so I have to decide on mine for 2016. No time like the present.

1) What is a Personal Motto?

A personal motto is a saying, catchphrase, whatever, that someone can adopt to shape their personal universe. You are the center of your personal universe and the world really does revolve around you in that respect. Personal Mottos set the tone for how you live your life. They don’t have to be extravagant or flashy; just a thing that you can tell yourself when you’re feeling down or things don’t appear to be going your way.

2) Why do I need a Personal Motto?

Well, you don’t absolutely have to have one. Plenty of people go through life without some guiding internal principle to keep them on track. Some navigate using The Force. It’s a totally optional thing.

3) Who needs a Personal Motto?

Again, not necessarily needed. If your personal gyroscope doesn’t need calibrating, you can go without them. Personally, I find them useful because they remind me of what I strive for on a daily basis and what I stand for.

3) Do I need to tell anyone?

Nope, totally up to you. In fact, it’s probably better to keep personal things to one’s self for obvious reasons.

3) How do I get one of these things?

Take stock in yourself. Figure out where you want to go, who you truly want to be, and you would be surprised what comes to mind.

Okay, Guru Robes off now. Thanks for your time. 🙂

  1. Did you do the three 3’s on purpose? “Three is the equilibrium of the unities.” 😀
    Anyway, I, too, believe in personal mottos. They absolutely drive the human spirit! “I can and I will… watch me.” Great post!

  2. My personal motto originates in Matthew 5.16! “Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works.” These days I’m not bothered about the glorifying bit that follows!
