Start each day with a positive thought and a grateful heart.

Life is about accepting the challenges along the way, choosing to keep moving forward, and savoring the journey.

Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and capable of more than you imagine.

When the going gets tough, put one foot in front of the other and just keep going. Don’t give up.

Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.

Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.

It’s only after you’ve stepped outside your comfort zone that you begin to change, grow, and transform.

You never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Do what is right, not what is easy nor what is popular.

Be grateful for what you already have while you pursue your goals. If you aren’t grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more.

Live the Life of Your Dreams: Be brave enough to live the life of your dreams according to your vision and purpose instead of the expectations and opinions of others.

Do not let the memories of your past limit the potential of your future. There are no limits to what you can achieve on your journey through life, except in your mind.

Pursue what catches your heart, not what catches your eyes.

Be brave to stand for what you believe in even if you stand alone.

Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.

Success is not how high you have climbed, but how you make a positive difference to the world.

Let the improvement of yourself keep you so busy that you have no time to criticize others.

If you believe very strongly in something, stand up and fight for it.

Surround Yourself with People Who Believe in Your Dreams: Surround yourself with people who believe in your dreams, encourage your ideas, support your ambitions, and bring out the best in you.

Always remember people who have helped you along the way, and don’t forget to lift someone up.

Maturity is when you stop complaining and making excuses, and start making changes.

Strong people have a strong sense of self-worth and self-awareness; they don’t need the approval of others.

Believe in your infinite potential. Your only limitations are those you set upon yourself.

Stop giving other people the power to control your happiness, your mind, and your life. If you don’t take control of yourself and your own life, someone else is bound to try.

Never lose hope. Storms make people stronger and never last forever.

If you have a strong purpose in life, you don’t have to be pushed. Your passion will drive you there.

Never stop dreaming, never stop believing, never give up, never stop trying, and never stop learning.

Do what you love, love what you do, and with all your heart give yourself to it.

The strongest people find the courage and caring to help others, even if they are going through their own storm.

Once you realize you deserve a bright future, letting go of your dark past is the best choice you will ever make.

It’s never too late to change your life for the better. You don’t have to take huge steps to change your life. Making even the smallest changes to your daily routine can make a big difference to your life.

To have what you have never had, you have to do what you have never done.

Do not let arrogance go to your head and despair to your heart; do not let compliments go to your head and criticisms to your heart; do not let success go to your head and failure to your heart.

The biggest wall you have to climb is the one you build in your mind: Never let your mind talk you out of your dreams, trick you into giving up. Never let your mind become the greatest obstacle to success. To get your mind on the right track, the rest will follow.

Courage is feeling fear, not getting rid of fear, and taking action in the face of fear.

Patience Is Not the Ability to Wait: Patience is not the ability to wait. Patience is to be calm no matter what happens, constantly take action to turn it to positive growth opportunities, and have faith to believe that it will all work out in the end while you are waiting.

You Are the Master of Your Attitude You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control the way you think about all the events. You always have a choice. You can choose to face them with a positive mental attitude.

Live the Life of Your Dreams When you start living the life of your dreams, there will always be obstacles, doubters, mistakes and setbacks along the way. But with hard work, perseverance and self-belief there is no limit to what you can achieve.

What’s done is done. What’s gone is gone. One of life’s lessons is always moving on. It’s okay to look back to see how far you’ve come but keep moving forward.

Don’t let others tell you what you can’t do. Don’t let the limitations of others limit your vision. If you can remove your self-doubt and believe in yourself, you can achieve what you never thought possible.

You are unique. You have different talents and abilities. You don’t have to always follow in the footsteps of others. And most important, you should always remind yourself that you don’t have to do what everyone else is doing and have a responsibility to develop the talents you have been given.

The surest way to make your dreams come true is to live them.

Each day brings new opportunities, allowing you to constantly live with love—be there for others—bring a little light into someone’s day. Be grateful and live each day to the fullest.

You cannot change anyone, but you can be the reason someone changes.

If you don’t give up on something you truly believe in, you will find a way.

Great leaders create more leaders, not followers.

Be the positive impact on the lives of others.

Turn your obstacles into opportunities and your problems into possibilities.

Discipline Your Mind to Think Positively: Discipline your mind to see the good in every situation and look on the best side of every event.

It takes guts and humility to admit mistakes. Admitting we’re wrong is courage, not weakness.

Dreams don’t work unless you take action. The surest way to make your dreams come true is to live them.

It takes sunshine and rain to make a rainbow. There would be no rainbows without sunshine and rain.

It doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down. All that matters is you get up one more time than you were knocked down.

Failure is a bend in the road, not the end of the road. Learn from failure and keep moving forward.

Don’t wait for things to happen. Make them happen.

You learn something valuable from all of the significant events and people, but you never touch your true potential until you challenge yourself to go beyond imposed limitations.

Don’t wait for the right moment to start, start and make each moment right.

Good people see the good and bring out the best in other people.

7 Effective Ways to Make Others Feel Important 1. Use their name. 2. Express sincere gratitude. 3. Do more listening than talking. 4. Talk more about them than about you. 5. Be authentically interested. 6. Be sincere in your praise. 7. Show you care.

What you stay focused on will grow.

It’s important that what thoughts you are feeding into your mind because your thoughts create your belief and experiences. You have positive thoughts and you have negative ones too. Nurture your mind with positive thoughts: kindness, empathy, compassion, peace, love, joy, humility, generosity, etc. The more you feed your mind with positive thoughts, the more you can attract great things into your life.

When things do not go your way, remember that every challenge — every adversity — contains within it the seeds of opportunity and growth.

Make the most of the best and the best of the worst, and keep your standards high. Never settle for anything less than you deserve or are capable of achieving.

Gratitude builds a bridge to abundance.

Challenge and adversity are meant to help you know who you are. Storms hit your weakness, but unlock your true strength.

Stop doing what is easy. Start doing what is right.

Changing your outside world cannot make you happy if you are an unhappy person. The real personal change can only happen from the inside out. If you firstly create the change within yourself, you can turn your life around.

You were born to stand out, stop trying to fit in.

Change may not always bring growth, but there is no growth without change.

The one who falls and gets up is stronger than the one who never tried. Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.

Beliefs are choices. First you choose your beliefs. Then your beliefs affect your choices.

Surround Yourself with Positive People Who Believe in Your Dreams Distance yourself from negative people who try to lower your motivation and decrease your ambition. Create space for positive people to come into your life. Surround yourself with positive people who believe in your dreams, encourage your ideas, support your ambitions, and bring out the best in you.

Life is short. Focus on what really matters most. You have to change your priorities over time.

Stop doing what is easy or popular. Start doing what is right.

Great leaders can see the greatness in others when they can’t see it themselves and lead them to their highest potential they don’t even know.
