I wrote about yesterday's mantra but I didn't post it.
It's the same thing I tell the IRS when they ask why I didn't pay my taxes. Steve Martin recommended that excuse.
Yesterday's mantra continued Friday's mantra because I enjoyed it so much. "I am the mountain."
I am the mountain. Saying it empowered me. Walking around, taking things on, I repeated it - I am the mountain. The mantra was an instant tonic. I walked like a mountain would walk, with brisk, confident steps, my head up, looking everywhere but seeing far ahead. I am the mountain! Pressures and stresses lift me up above everything else.
Think of yourself as a mountain. I adopted Mount Shasta as my model. It's so big and unique, standing alone above California's landscape, with beautiful lines. People look at it with awe and wonder. Do you know how far you can see when you're as tall as Mount Shasta? Do you know how strong you are as a mountain? It's you that must be overcome.
I am the mountain. I do not easily come down.
