I love words, quotes and tiny pieces of inspiration. Words are powerful and have remarkable ability to limit or promote our growth and general wellbeing. I have experienced first hand the power of negative words, self-talks and all.
I have seen the limiting power of words. We become what consistently say, do or think. We become also what others(major influences in our lives) say to us consistently which we have allowed ourselves to believe. I believe that every person has a potential far greater than they’ve been permitted to believe.
We can change our lives, circumstances and reach the mark we have set for ourselves. It begins with our words.
So, this year, I implore you to choose to fill your life with positive, inspirational words. Fuel your mind with this quotes. Get started on the right foot.
I present to you 16 quotes to kick off your 2018.
“It is our attitude toward life that determines life’s attitude toward us. We get back what we put out.” –Earl Nightingale
What are you putting in 2018? Watch out for the effects.
“What is harder than rock, or softer than water? Yet soft water hollows out hard rock. Persevere.” –Ovid
in 2018, PERSEVERE! Don’t give up too soon.
Don’t just fold your hands and watch life pass you by. Go all out. Try something new. Make mistakes. Learn and keep firing more shots at life.
“I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.” –Thomas Jefferson
History is good. Occasionally it’s okay and recommended to look back and learn from the past. But don’t dwell there. Revel in the dreams of the future and let it spur you into action.
“I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true–hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.” –Ray Bradbury
Never stop working hard. You become an expert by constant learning and practice. Do what you love. This makes the seeming ‘hardwork’ easier.
Do not depend on others to be happy. Your happiness should come from within you. Be happy!
Be resilient. Don’t give up too soon…
Never waste the day. Use up the energy and don’t forget to refresh every now and then. Capture the thoughts as often as possible, filter them and turn them into ideas.
Don’t try to go it all alone. Be part of a community. Be mentored and mentor someone too. Make friends. Find partners for accountability.
Community is good. But spending time with people who add no value to your life isn’t. Be intentional in your relationships
“Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get.” –Ray Kroc
There’s no such thing as luck. What we call ‘luck’ is ‘opportunity meets preparation’
Don’t just wait for opportunities to come knocking. Create opportunities for yourself.
“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.” –Abraham Lincoln
Resolve within yourself to succeed. Pay no attention to other people’s opinions.
“If you hear a voice within you say you cannot paint, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.” –Vincent Van Gogh
Never let anyone (even you) tell you can’t do what you set your mind to doing. Don’t let anyone stifle your dreams. Dare. Challenge yourself.
Don’t miss the fun!
Make every day in 2018 count. Be Intentional.
