What are your goals in life? For some of us it’s starting a business, getting that dream job or finding everlasting love. Some people tie their own goals and happiness to their children’s future. That can be a slippery slope, I gotta tell ya. Here are five inspiring, motivational quotes for your best life.
Whatever it is that you aspire to, it’s important to stay positive, productive and not procrastinate. We have this one life and all we have is the here and now. Negativity, procrastination and unsupportive people can deter you from being great.
1. Who are you?
You are exactly who you think you are. Regardless of what anyone says. Whoever you think you are is who you will be even if you’re not that yet. Saying “I Am____” with purpose can manifest what you want in your life. Be careful what you attach to your ‘I Am’ because it has the power to free you as well as limit you. Only attach the positive things you want in your life.
2. The importance of stillness
Life is chaotic. Sometimes we go through situations and we don’t know what to do, or when it will get better. The answers are always there if we choose to listen. It is only in the stillness of the body and mind do we see things more clearly. That is when God speaks. This is why mediation is so helpful. It allows you to be still and listen.
3. Getting an early start to your day
“Early to bed, early to rise. Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” People tend to be more productive and creative earlier in the day. That’s not to say that you can’t be productive at night. There is something to be said for the freshness of morning energy. The air feels and smells different. This one is the most difficult for me, because for pretty much my whole life my alarm clock was my enemy. My life changed in strange and unexpected ways when my boyfriend passed away earlier this year. One of which is I now get up early. And my life is better for it.
4. The power of positive thinking
That is because if you’re being positive, you are actively attracting positivity in your life. When we are ready to make positive changes in our lives, we attract what and who we need to help us. If there is one thing science and technology has taught us is that nothing is impossible. If we want to be productive, it helps to surround ourselves with productive people. Their work ethic will be inspiring and motivational for you.
5. Dreams don’t work unless you do
Having a dream is easy. Actually putting in the work and sacrifice it take to make it come true is something else. We have to stop living life as if this a rehearsal. The past is gone and the future is not guaranteed. All we have for sure is the here and now. There are a lot of people who just sleepwalk through their lives. We need to wake up and start living as if this day was our last.
I hope these quotes will help you as they continue to help me on a daily basis. I have never been one of those perpetually positive people. I have to make a conscious effort to live by these principles. I’m certainly not where I want to be, but I’m better that I was a year ago. Cheers to a Hella good life!
