Write your lshta Mantra in a notebook for half an hour, observing silence and without any distraction. Write in bold letters on slips of paper: Speak the truth; Om courage; Om purity; I must realize God now; time is most precious; I must become a true Brahmachari; Brahmacharya is divine life; I am an embodiment of faith, courage, purity, patience and mercy. Fix these mottoes in the bedroom and dining hall.
Keep some of the slips in your pocket also. This is an easy way of developing virtuous qualities.
