Sometimes think positive quotes are just the thing you need to help you get back out there in the big, bad world and keep going.
When you feel like giving up, when you don’t know what anything stands for anymore, when you can’t see the possibilities, there’s nothing like a good quote to light that fire back up inside.
Here are some of my favorites to help you think positive again.
“Every day brings new choices.” Martha Beck
You can choose to live today differently. Don’t forget that. It’s totally up to you what you do with today and how you handle situations – even ones you’ve seen a million times in the past.
Fall in love with life! Your life, specifically. After all, what else do you have going on?
“You’ve done it before and you can do it now. See the positive possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.” Ralph Marston
“My dear friend, clear your mind of can’t.” Samuel Johnson
Need I say more?
“The best revenge is massive success.”
Yes, channel all that energy into doing your absolute best at whatever you love. Don’t let it destroy you. Instead, use it to your advantage.
“You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” Eleanor Roosevelt
That Eleanor. She was one smart lady. Why do you have to do that thing? Not because she told you to. Because if you don’t it haunts you. Because if you don’t that’s the tell that it’s the thing that you needed to do to grow and get to the next level and the next chapter of your story.
If you’re too afraid and you think you can’t, you must prove to yourself – no, you must be – stronger than that, to face what comes next for you. Because if you don’t successfully face that challenge, you go back to level one.
And level one is just no fun for anyone. That’s Stuckville.
“You are never to old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” C.S. Lewis
C.S. Lewis was undoubtedly a genius, so if he says it, it has to be true, right? Seriously, though, why would it be true that you can’t set new goals when you’re old? It just doesn’t make any sense. You may decide there are things you don’t want for yourself at a certain point in your life, but to stop growing and dreaming – that’s unbelievable.
“There is no stress in the world, only people thinking stressful thoughts and then acting on them.” Dr. Wayne Dyer
Stress is subjective. It’s not a real thing. You can’t grow it, you can’t eat it, you can’t breathe it or touch it. It comes from our minds and our thoughts and those cause us to behave in certain ways. Change your thoughts, change your life.
Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines. Robert Schuller
“Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.” Zig Ziglar
If I told you I could give you something that would improve your mood, your appearance, your performance, your bank account, your relationships and your health by 1276%, and it was totally free, would you work hard to get it? Of course you would. . . Positive thinking will do just that. (*this number has not been independently verified or approved by the FDA)
Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.William Ellery
“There is only one thing more painful than learning from experience and that is not learning from experience.” Archibald McLeish
Funny, and true.
