I have been telling clients to use Pass-Phrases for quite some time now, and they usually ask, “what should I use”? I used to respond, “something random, but memorable, and throw in numbers and special characters”. For example: “H!s Dog $p0t”
However, in my most recent round of personal password updates, I thought it would be fun to use Positive Affirmations as Pass-Phrases. There is power in repetition and suggestion. So, if you must type the same 10-20 characters multiple times a day, then why not reap some benefit at the same time?
Here are a few examples of Positive Affirmation Pass-Phrases:
@ll i$ G00d!
! b3lieve !n (insert here)
! n3v3r g!ve Up!
I @m K!nd!
So why not harness the Power of Positive Thinking and use this as an excuse to update all your passwords (which you should do frequently) and sharpen your focus or boost your confidence at the same time?
Give it a try for a few days and let me know what you think!!
