I love motivational quotes – the simplicity and elegance of a powerful quote sets off an internal spark like few other things in life can. I find it to be great for motivation and goal setting to have them everywhere. I have posters and images all over my office with some of my favorite quotes. When I’m feeling down or lacking vision, sometimes a quick glance is all it takes to get my act together.
I would say laughter is the best medicine. But it’s more than that. It’s an entire regime of antibiotics and steroids. Laughter brings the swelling down on our national psyche, and then applies an antibiotic cream. You gotta keep it away from your eyes… Obviously, it’s a challenge to make light of the darkness but, um, it’s better than crying about it. Stephen Colbert

Leave it to Oprah to talk about how to live life in the real fast lane. Why drive when you can fly? She says that all you need to do is connect your power to your passion and off you go. Think about how Oprah has lived her life. She definitely got her power and her passion linked up, and it has provided her the energy and drive to become a billionaire. She is entirely self-made, which makes her a great role model for young women that want to earn a lot of money and are starting out with little.
We are so often hit with negativity—negative news, negative perspectives—from pessimistic people that it might seem next to impossible to continue on with a positive spirit. Instead of getting stuck in the negativity, turn to those habitually optimistic people who have figured out how to see the brighter side of life and remain positive no matter what… so you can learn to do the same.
The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. And the fact that it practically always doesn’t, matters not a jot. The possibility is always there.Monica Baldwin
Actually, I love Yip Man’s quote (is it just me or does “Yip Man” sound like a name for a bizarre kind of superhero?). We tend to eat and drink, taking the sustenance for granted. Half the time, we are not even fully aware that we are eating or drinking, absorbed in the TV instead. Yip Man is saying “This is important. Pay attention. The water does not have to be here yet here it is.” He is making us aware in order to fully experience drinking.

Speaking up for yourself is a learned habit, no one is just born with it, they had to develop the skill. It’s an important skill, and one that will benefit you all the days of your life and help you become the best woman you can be. This dovetails nicely with fighting for your dreams, because when you pursue a dream you’re going to have to do a lot of speaking up for yourself. There are those that will try to dissuade you from reaching your dreams and goals and you will have to find your voice.


“Outside, there was that predawn kind of clarity, where the momentum of living has not quite captured the day. The air was not filled with conversation or thought bubbles or laughter or sidelong glances. Everyone was sleeping, all of their ideas and hopes and hidden agendas entangled in the dream world, leaving this world clear and crisp and cold as a bottle of milk in the fridge. ”
It may take you a while to find your voice and develop it into one that can be heard, but once you do have it you won’t ever want to let it go. Imagine someone trying to silence your voice after all the trouble you’ve gone through to get it? The nerve of some people! That’s what makes this quote so memorable, it’s speaks to the part of us that doesn’t want to give up the things we’ve worked so hard to attain. First, work on developing your voice, and you won’t have to worry about defending it, that will come naturally.
All women should be feminists if this quote is the definition of what it means to be a feminist. We should all see women as smart, gifted, and tough, and it’s very telling that she has to use this as what feminists think. Does this mean that it’s not a view shared by everyone? For so long women had to fight just to be considered equals in society and get the right to vote. Even today in America women earn less than men in the same jobs and roles. Worldwide women are still viewed as second class citizens. Why? Let’s all adopt the viewpoint in this quote.
Jim Rohn famously said that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. There is an inherent truth to that, as we, as social creatures, pick up on the habits, behaviors, and attitudes of those around us. What that means is that if you want the strength and positivity to get through anything, you must keep your circle of friends and associates as healthy as you can. Wherever possible, you must remove toxic relationships from your life, regardless of how tough it may be. And in situations such as work where you many not have control, you must learn how to practice positivity so its spreads to those around you.
“A woman or man of value doesn’t love you because of what he or she wants you to be or do for them. He or she loves you because your combined souls understand one another, complements each other, and make sense above any other person in this world. You each share a part of their soul's mirror and see each other’s light reflected in it clearly. You can easily speak from the heart and feel safe doing so. Both of you have been traveling a parallel road your entire life. Without each other's presence, you feel like an old friend or family member was lost. It bothers you, not because you have given it too much meaning, but because God did. This is the type of person you don't have to fight for because you can't get rid of them and your heart doesn't want them to leave anyways.”
"Every friendship travels at sometime through the black valley of despair. This tests every aspect of your affection. You lose the attraction and the magic. Your sense of each other darkens and your presence is sore. If you can come through this time, it can purify with your love, and falsity and need will fall away. It will bring you onto new ground where affection can grow again." John O'Donohue

What can possibly be more pleasant and inspiring than hearing the words of love in the mornings. When you know that there’s a shoulder to lean on, the ears that can listen to all of your complaints, the hands that hug you tight no matter what. If you are looking for different ways to express your love, if a simple ‘I love you’ isn’t enough, the best morning quotes will do this job for you.

Here’s a success tip from someone that achieved high levels of success. She’s saying that dreaming of success won’t get you there all by itself. You have to have a dream, but you’ll stay a dreamer unless you back up your dream with work. Learn this lesson early on in your life and it will pay dividends all the time. If things aren’t working out the way you want them to it likely means you’re not putting in enough work to make them happen. Get a clear focus, a clear dream, a clear goal, and then follow up with focused work.
It’s pretty amazing being a woman, you have all of the essentials for life within you. You’re a very nurturing force, and not only have the power to create life, but to incubate it and deliver it to the world. On an individual level you’re able to change and become whatever you want, growing and developing into the life that you choose. It is an amazing experience and one that you’ll want to create consciously rather than letting others decide what sort of life you’ll have. Never forget that you have these powers within you.
“Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster than one day at a time. Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest. In each waking day, you will find scores of blessing and opportunities for positive change. Do not let your today be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future! Today is new day ! Good Morning ” – Steve Maraboli

This is a great quote about beauty because it doesn’t have anything to do with physical appearance. She’s saying that true beauty comes from the ability to be yourself, no matter what sort of person you are. In our society so much emphasis is placed on looks that we’ve lost sight of what real beauty is. There isn’t just one ideal when it comes to beauty as far as looks go, but what she’s saying here is that there is one ideal for beauty, and that’s to be yourself no matter what.
Happiness is a misunderstood, often misquoted commodity. To be loved is to be happy, to be an artist is to be happy, to walk in a park alone with your thoughts is to be happy. Happiness is how you define it. Many people are robbed of their happiness for they often try to follow someone else’s definition of it. It’s a rare commodity today, one that the world is scrambling to own. Be grateful for your happiness.
Reading theses have really helped me just smile, it is also helping me let go and move forward. Thank you so much and I am happy there are people like you in this world bring out the beauty in the world, thank you again. I may have not seen all the troubles in the world, but I have seen enough to know that this could and should help everyone, in one way or another.
