Words have an impact over us and the more you surround yourself with words of encouragement the better. I hope you completed Day-8 and wrote out your inspirational words. This practice will not only help you out in your fitness realm but in all realms of life. So today’s BEAUTIFUL MIND challenge is to be purposeful and conscious of those words and have them around you. Here are a few ideas to wear, especially when working out…
- Hats or Beanies
- Tattoo (if you’re into that)
- Yoga pants (there’s some cool ones)
- Workout pants
- On your water bottle
- On your iPhone or iPad if you use it for music during workouts
- On your headphones

I remember watching Harry Potter thinking, “Every incantation is just words mentioned in the right order to make something happen.” I’m sure you were pondering the same thing too. The power of words.
When I moved to the states as a child I use to hear sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me yah right! That was a messed up statement because words have power especially if you align it with intention.
In Hawaii we have our own saying: I ka ‘ōlelo no ke ola, I ka ‘ōlelo nō ka make. Basically stating that in your word there is life & death. In fact we had such a sacredness of spoken words that in old tradition a man would court a woman using the nose flute because breath from the nose was considered un-polluted. The mouth can be used to mention negative or positive things, therefore it’s not dependable. (Okay, enough culture class.)
One of my favorite words would have to be aloha because it has kauna (hidden meaning). Maybe you should choose several words or one for every day of the week. Just keep in mind that these are your MANA or power words so it should spark vibrancy. And as always you can post it to the blog for some universal accountability. Making your intentions known.
