This Is Why You Should Write A Career Mantra
“So there's this largely forgotten film from 1999 called Bowfinger. Seen it? In the film (and most things he's starred in, actually), Eddie Murphy's character, Kit Ramsey, has loads of issues. Whenever he's spiraling towards a breakdown, Kit's therapist suggests that he calm himself by repeating a personal mantra: ‘Keep it together. Keep it together. Keep it together.’ K-I-T.
Maybe because I happen to share a first name with Eddie's character, every time I hear the word ‘mantra,’ I think of that scene—and a little part of me squirms. To me, a personal mantra has always sounded life coachy, cheesy, even cultish. When I imagine the sorts of people who have one, I don't think of creative, interesting women—I think of strangely ageless dudes who do a lot of yoga in white linen.
So let me clarify: under no accounts am I about to ask you to write a personal mantra. No judgment if you want one, just maybe do it on your own time. Instead, I'm suggesting you create a career mantra for yourself.
It just takes three simple steps—no yoga or weird voodoo rituals necessary.”
