Inspiration and Staying Positive

Posted in Inspiration at 9:07 AM by Solutions2Projects, LLC

I have been collecting inspirational quotes and have put them on the wall in my office (and on FB) so I can look at them regularly and share with others. We are bombarded with negativity and I know I need frequent doses of positivity. I thought I would share some of my favorites. Where possible I have credited the source. In some cases, I simply wrote them down on slips of paper, taped them to my wall and have no idea where they came from.

“The only way to be great is to love what you do.” Steve Jobs

“Expressing your true self is not an option; it’s a must. Be original.” Unknown

“Success is doing what you want, when you want, where you want, with whom you want, as much as you want.” Unknown

“Don’t squander the gold of your days, listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving your life away to the ignorant, the common, and the vulgar. These are sickly aims, the false ideals, of our age. Live! Live the wonderful life that is in you! Let nothing be lost upon you. Be always searching for new sensations. Be afraid of nothing.” Oscar Wilde, Picture of Dorian Gray

“Challenges are what make like interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” Joshua J. Marine

“Life is like a camera. Just focus on what’s important. Capture the good times. Develop from the negatives. And if things don’t work out…just take another shot.” Unknown

“Be strong when you are weak. Be brave when you are scared. Be humble when you are victorious. Be badass every day.” Unknown

“Risk more than is required. Learn more than is normal. Be strong. Show courage. Breathe. Excel. Love. Lead. Speak your truth. Live your values. Laugh. Cry. Innovate. Simplify. Adore mastery. Release mediocrity. Aim for genius. Stay humble. Be kinder than expected. Deliver more than is needed. Exude passion. Shatter your limits. Transcend your fears. Inspire others by your bigness. Don’t stop. Change the world.” Unknown

“Welcome chance encounters and opportunities to dream up outlandish plans.” Richard Branson

“We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us, and make us kinder. You always have the choice.” Dalai Lama

Every day we have the opportunity to choose how we are going to be in the world. I use these types of quotes to inspire me to be a positive influence in the world and in my own life. How do you stay positive and focused?
