Love Yourself First
"You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection." - Buddah
"When we make deposit of unconditional love, when we live the primary laws of love, we encourage others to live the primary laws of life. In other words, when we truly love others without condition, without strings, we help them feel secure and safe and validated and affirmed in their essential worth, identity, and integrity." –Steven Covey
"Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it." - Groucho Marx
"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." - Robert Brault
"Wherever you go, go with all your heart." - Confucius

Look On The Bright Side Of Life
"All that we are is the result of What we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think, we become." - Buddah
"Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words.
Keep your words positive because your words become your behaviors.
Keep your behaviors positive because your behaviors become your habits.

Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny." - Gandhi
“Here is my wish for you and every other child, woman, and man on the face of the earth: Spend one week saying only kind, caring things to yourself. Say thank you at least ten times an hour, direct five toward yourself and five to the world at large. Compliment yourself (and others) each time an effort is made. Notice all the wonderful qualities and characteristics about yourself and those around you. One week. You will never go back. And your whole life will be a glorious meditation.” - Cheri Huber
"Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved." - William Jennings Bryan
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
"How do we keep our inner fire alive? Two things, at minimum, are needed: an ability to appreciate the positives in our life - and a commitment to action. Every day, it's important to ask and answer these questions: 'What's good in my life?' and 'What needs to be done?" - Nathaniel Branden
“If you have made mistakes. . . there is always another chance for you. . . you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down.” - Mary Pickford
The Power of Beliefs
"If we can only accept what we currently believe, we have already reached our full potential. Be willing to experiment, to take risks. While skepticism can be healthy, too much skepticism can be deadly... deadly to one's spirit, to one's sense of well-being and to one's dreams." - Blair Warren
"Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives." - Anthony Robbins
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition." - Steve Jobs
“Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Life is too short
" This is your life. Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something change it. If you don't like your job, quit. Life is simple, stop overanalyzing it. Open your mind, arms and heart to new things and people. We are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often. Getting lost will help you find yourself. Life is about people you meet and things you create with them. So go out and start creating. Life is short. Live your dream, and wear your passion." - Anonymous
"Life is too short to work at a boring company." - Anonymous
“Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.” - Anthony Robbins
"Happiness in life is not measured by the things we achieve, the places we go, or the route that we take to get there. Happiness in life is measured by the people that we share all of our experiences with." - Chris Needham
Be in Love With Your Ideas
"Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the options and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering." – don Miguel Ruiz
"True character is having the courage to defy your position and express your emotions. We stand up and say things. We learn forward. We make declarations. We are charming. We are not charming to everyone, of course. But we'll charm people who relate to us. And you know what this is? That's love. - Danielle Laporte
"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway." - Mother Teresa
"Perhaps the greatest mistake we can make, which causes loss of self-respect, is making the opinions of others more important than our own opinion of ourselves. You'll find no shortage of opinions directed at you. If you allow them to undermine your self-respect, you're seeking the respect of others over your own, and you're abdicating yourself." - Wayne Dyer
“A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That's why they don't get what they want.” - Madonna
You Can Do Anything
"God said 'Ask and you shall receive', he didn't say 'Bitch and whine and you shall receive." – Tony Robbins
"If you want to succeed in your life, remember this phrase. The past does not equal The future. Because you failed yesterday; or all day today, or a moment ago, or for the last six months; the last 16 years, or the last fifty years of life doesn't mean anything...All that matters is what are you going to do, Right Now." – Tony Robbins
"When something does not work in your life, assume that you are operating on false information. Don't worry-it is not a problem. In fact it is a blessing. It means you have become aware that you are off track and have already taken the first step to correct course." - Marie Forleo
"Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success." - Napoleon Hill
"If failure is not an option, neither is success. Innovation is just repeated failure till you come up with something that works." - Seth Godin
"Success cannot be measured in wealth, fame or power, but by whether you have made a positive difference for others." - Richard Branson
"Hold a picture of yourself long and steadily enough in your mind's eye and you will be drawn toward it. Picture yourself vividly as winning and that alone will contribute immeasurably to success. Great living starts with a picture, held in your imagination, of what you would like to do or be." - Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick
“Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.” - Demosthenes
"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it." - Steve Jobs
"A little boy was having difficulty lifting a heavy stone.
His father came along just then.
Noting the boy's failure, he asked, "Are you using all your strength?"
"Yes, I am," the little boy said impatiently.
"No, you are not," the father answered.
"I am right here just waiting, and you haven't asked me to help you."
