The idea of a ‘mental toolkit’ might seem strange to you but if you think of it as a collection of strategies and techniques to help you increase your confidence, be more assertive, boost your self-esteem, be more productive, or just something to give your motivation a boost, then it starts to make sense. Things that might be worth including in your toolkit are affirmations that resonate with you, quotations that inspire you, and motivational videos that make you want to get off your ass and conquer the world! Well, you get the idea anyway 🙂
On this page I’ll list the things that I find useful but I encourage you to keep a list of the things that work for you. And they do need to be things that work for you. No shame involved. If listening to ‘Eye of the Tiger‘ pumps you up enough to get over a bout of procrastination, then go for it 🙂
