A few years ago I made the decision to be a more positive person. I’ve always been pretty positive, but I always let things get to me. If I woke up to find coffee grains in my coffee, I’d consider that to be the way that my day would go. I quickly realized that my own train of thought was leading me to have bad days from time to time, and I decided I needed to get over that. I tried hard, but it’s not that easy. What worked for me was having a bevy of motivational quotes to remember each morning to help me stay focused and positive throughout the day. Here are a few for your own use.
Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction. Break the habit. Talk about our joys.
What a wonderful thought it is that some of the best days of our lives haven’t happened yet.
You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.
Change your thoughts and you’ll change your world.
If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.
Keep your head, heels, and standards high.
Will this matter a year from now?
I hope you live a life you’re proud of.
Be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can only be forgiven, not forgotten.
People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Character is how you treat those who can do nothing for you.
You can’t control the things that happen to you, but you can control the way you react to them.
Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.
The only disability in life is a bad attitude.
