Bodybuilding Mantra’s I Chose – Just For You

In yesterdays post, I talked about finding a mantra that you can use to help keep you motivated in your weightlifting workouts. I know that staying motivated is a challenge for many of you, but one way to overcome that is to drum some mantras into your brain and repeating it over and over on those days where you feel you are on the road to nowhere.

So what I did was take several mantras used by some of the greats… past and present. Mantras which I think will be great for you to use as a bodybuilding mantra.

“Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot;
But make it hot by striking.”
– William B. Sprague

“Nothing can stop the man
with the right mental attitude
from achieving his goal;
Nothing on earth can help the man
with the wrong mental attitude.”
– W.W. Ziege

People often say that motivation doesn’t last.
Well, neither does bathing –
That’s why we recommend it daily.”
– Zig Ziglar

“People seldom see the halting and painful steps
By which the most insignificant success is achieved. “
– Anne Sullivan

“Far better it is to dare mighty things,
To win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure,
Than to rank with those poor spirits
Who neither enjoy nor suffer much
Because they live in that gray twilight
That knows neither victory nor defeat.”
– Theodore Roosevelt

“So go ahead and make mistakes.
Make all you can.
Because that’s where you will find success.
On the far side of failure. “
– Thomas J. Watson, Sr.

“Change will not come
If we wait for some other person or some other time.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
We are the change that we seek. “
– Barack Obama

“Success is a journey, not a destination.”
– Ben Sweetland
(I use this one often)

“Don’t find fault. Find a remedy.”
– Henry Ford

“Champions aren’t made in the gyms.
Champions are made from something they have deep inside them
– a desire, a dream, a vision.”
– Muhammad Ali

“The man who moved a mountain
Was the one who began carrying away small stones.”
– Chinese Proverb

“I have failed over and over again – that is why I succeed.”
– Michael Jordan

“The way to succeed is to double your failure rate.
Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.”
– Henry Ford

“You must have long range goals
To keep from being frustrated
By short-term failures.”
– Bob Bales

These were all hand picked by yours truly. You can add to this if you wish, or simply slate my choices. You choose. Stay tuned for tomorrows post when I give you the 3rd and final part of Shockbody exercise variations.
