How to Create Magic in Your Life with a Motto and This Formula

I'm fascinated by the power of a heart-centered motto. A motto is a few words that remind you of the person you want to be and it serves as your blueprint. It helps you align with the life you want to live: design it, create it, and live it.

A motto is a call-to-action.

To create a motto that fits your mission in life, you’ll need to be clear on what you want and how you want to feel. It should point to your heart’s desire. The formula I used to create my motto left me focused, inspired, and feeling empowered. I’m going to share this magical formula with you.

Here it is:

My Heart + My Motto + My Action = Magic

My heart’s desire is freedom.

My motto is short and simple—Create it.

My first step or action solidifies it and begins building the momentum I need to create.

You can even boost your motto's power with a visual.

I imagine my motto sprinkling stardust on whatever I’m focused on.

Create it is so much more than two words. It reminds me of how powerful I am. How powerful my words are. It brings my heart, words and actions into alignment and it’s a reminder that I can create the life I want to live and anything my heart desires. It ensures that whatever decision I’m making, move I’m making, or dream I’m fulfilling aligns with my intention to create the life I dream of. A life full of freedom and abundance.

When I need to take action, when I’m feeling stuck, when I’m faced with the seemingly impossible, or when I’m slaying my goals like a BOSS, my motto reminds me that I’m UNSTOPPABLE.

If you want to become more and more the best possible version of yourself, a great life motto can help you…

  • Remember the person you want to be.

  • Remember the qualities you want to develop.

  • Set intentions that support your vision for your life.

  • Take action and make steady progress toward those intentions.

  • Help you make difficult decisions.

  • Help you navigate your life when you come to a fork in the road.

What is your life motto? If you have a life motto, share it below. Otherwise, I encourage you to create your own or feel free to adopt mine.

All the best,
