Welcome to Day 24 of our 31 Days of Embracing Your Divatude Challenge! Today we are going to work on creating a personal motto. Your personal motto is simply a word or words that summarizes your outlook on life.
If you are new to the challenge, you can catch up here.
Briefly, the month of May is dedicated to focusing on our Divatude – being driven, inspiring, victorious and called to action in our personal and professional lives. As women, different aspects of divatude impact our daily walk at all times. Our focus with this challenge is taking the time to reflect on our daily attitudes and actions and ensuring we are focusing on what will lift us and others around us up.
Mottos are all around us. We hear them and use them on a regular basis – they are a companies way to get us to remember them, their products and usefulness. From Nike’s “Just Do It” to McDonald’s “We’re Loving It” – marketing executives spend tons of time and energy coming up with the right mix of words to promote and sell their products.
On a personal level, we can utilize mottos to do the same to – to remember our true focus, passion and usefulness. Personal mottos should inspire us to take action, to overcome obstacles and live up to our highest selves. It is a reminder to tap into the best that is within us and bring it to our families, communities and the world we live in.
Embrace The Divatude!
That is not just the tagline for Divas With A Purpose – that is my personal motto, my overall reminder and push. When I see it, hear it or write it I am reminding myself to keep a positive attitude focused on being driven, inspiring, victorious and called to action! Embracing means to accept or support a belief, theory, or change willingly and enthusiastically. My goal is to do just that with my “divatude” on a daily basis.
Find inspiration for your own personal motto by being honest with yourself and get really clear within your own mind about your core values and what you want in life. Also, from listening to music, reading and speaking to others will help you reflect on your motto.
This is a challenge that you will not complete in one day. But you can take today to start reflecting on it and working towards your end result. Many of the ideas that you utilized while working on your personal mission statement can be incorporated with this challenge. The two should be closely related. Essentially your motto is the tagline for your personal motto – a summation or keyword.
