This post is to spark a little fire inside you that will get you in the mood to go after all your goals! Here’s a list of 7 of my favorite quotes to live by everyday:
1. You attract what you are, not what you want. So if you want great, be great.
This simply works by way of the law of attraction. What ever energy you give out to the world daily is what you will attract back into your life. If you are giving off positive energy you will find more positive things, situations and people in your life. So simply put, if you want great then be great!
2. Stars can’t shine without darkness
This is a favorite because it really speaks to the fact that nothing great comes easy. Its hard to be a person that shines without having been through some sort of darkness. This just about applies to everyone and its a great quote to remember when your going through a period of darkness.
3. Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
This is a favorite because its ALL about taking responsibility for what happens/is happening in your life. Everything. Most people are quick to blame external sources for their current situations in life without even recognizing it, but when you realize that you really are the person that controls your feelings/life/state/mood it all becomes a lot easier. ( I may make a separate post on this topic alone)
4. Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.
Similarly to the quote above, people are quick to make excuses as to why they cant do ‘x’. The most common excuse people have is the lack of time, especially when it comes to their health and fitness. The simple truth is, if you truly want something you will use what you have and do what you can. Simply just START!
5. Great things never came from comfort zones.
Comfort zones are a great thing, but nothing ever grows there. If you want to do something extraordinary, different, achieve something you’ve only dreamt about you have to be willing to be VERY uncomfortable. This is where most people quit and step back into their comfort zone because that is where they feel safe and secure. In the times you feel uncomfortable, you need to remind yourself of this quote.
6. The secret to change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.
Change is hard and its even harder when your trying to fight the old and disregarding the new. When one door closes another one opens so remember when making changes in your life, leave the past in the past where it belongs. Focus all your time and energy on building up your new until you forget the past even happened. The past has no real benefit to your life and future besides taking away the lessons you learnt from it.
7. We rise by lifting others.
It feels amazing to give to others and this is what this quote is all about. By giving to others we actually end up helping ourselves. We feel better about ourselves and our moods are lifted when we help someone else or praise them! So go ahead and go lift up the people around you today!
