The Power of Positive Inspirational Quotes
Henry Ford once said, “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right!” Positive inspirational quotes like this remind us of the power we have to inspire or dispirit ourselves. How happy can you be? Happy to the degree in which you can think with a positive attitude.
Just as you practice the piano, knitting, or bricklaying, positive thinking can only be perfected with practice. And where do we get the inspiration for our positive thinking? Inspiration to think positive can come to us in different forms, from goals we would like to accomplish to those that we must accomplish. Perhaps you would really like that promotion; or perhaps you have two kids in college and you have realized that you just don’t make enough money anymore and you really need a raise. Either way, these are both situations that should inspire you to think positively about opening more doors for yourself!
There are many ways to find inspiration:
- Picturing (literally) where you want to be in the future
- Referring to quotes or stories that remind you that anything is possible
- Making a bucket list (no matter your age – remember this is just for inspiration what you hope to accomplish in your lifetime)
- Making yourself over spiritually and physically
- …and take your daily Mind Vitamins!
How you become inspired to think positively is completely up to you. Some of the most self-defeating phrases that throw a knife right through your potential are “I can’t…,” “I’ll never be able to do that…,” or “It’s just going to take too long.” If you decide to wait for inspiration to knock on your door and slap you in the face, then you will remain exactly where you are.
A negative attitude most certainly precedes failure. Have you ever felt depressed? If so, you also understand that as your mood decreased, so too, did your energy level. This tells us there is a definite correlation between our attitude and level of motivation!
It’s time to create your own inspiration and change your life from one of idleness to one that is wide open! What works as inspiration? Finding a purpose or passion, whether that be your job, your family, or just starting a collection of something that you love! Positive inspirational quotes can be part of this process. Being inspired each and every day is the first step to waking up in the morning with a positive attitude.
