Personal Development: Do You Have A Personal Theme?Posted on Timeless 36 comments
Do You Have A Personal Theme?
What do you use to get yourself back on track? If you are in a funk or if something happens that takes you off your game, what do you use to bring yourself back to your sweet spot?
I learned this technique from Vanessa Duplessie who did a session for Johnathan Budd’s Life Transformation Now program. The lesson was about having a Personal Theme. Do you have a personal theme or mantra? Well, this is how you can get one.
A Personal Theme is a 3-5 word statement. This statement is used to bring you back on track. How you develop this theme is through deep thought and mediation about where you are, where you were and where you want to be. This process can take little effort, or depending on the transformation that you are going through, a considerable amount of time.
It is not a good idea to live in the past, but to use is only in times of conscious reflection. So, when developing your theme look back over the past year: what did you accomplish, what did you not accomplish? What worked last year, what did not work last year? What do you want next year? What do you want to be? What is your driving purpose this coming year?
Examples of Personal Themes
Here are some that have been used by others which you can apply to yourself. But remember, we are all different so if you can think of one that applies more to you that would be great.
- Make It Matter
- Think Big
- Now Is The Time
- Just Do It
So the next time you are going it to a sales meeting, a meeting with your boss, a new client or even a friend in need or a family member, remind yourself what your personal theme is. Take a few deep breathes, and repeat 2 or 3 times. This should feed your soul for whatever arises in the near future. Remember to keep it top of mind and use it every day.
One other idea is to change your theme from time to time. Things do not stay the same and neither do we. You could have a yearly theme, such as an overall theme, and then one for each month. You could change it based on the holidays of the month, such as in May you may want to have one that reminds you of your Mother or being a Mother. You can change it or leave it the same, whatever suits you the best.
When I was developing my own, it came pretty quickly. One of the ideas that motivates me is the feeling of Love, pretty common I am sure. The other idea I had was that I wanted to find success in my new venture and I thought about how that made me feel. What came out of that was my new theme: Love is Success. I will find success when I love what I do, love the people that I meet when doing it, love my clients (even the seemingly unlovable ), love my life!!
I wish you the best in your journey and would love to hear what your themes are. Please take a moment and leave me a comment on what you are thinking about using.
