NUMBER ONE: THE GOLDEN RULE
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
NUMBER TWO: “If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way”
I’m just little ole me and though I wish I had millions of dollars and magic powers to change the world for how I believe God intended I don’t have either of those things so I just truly try to live my everyday showing everyone I cross paths with positivity, love and true sincerity. If I could leave a complete stranger thinking “wow, there are still good people out there” then my job for the day is done.
NUMBER THREE: “True forgiveness is when you can say, thank you for that experience”
OMG, I couldn’t agree with this one more. I know the saying “forgive and forget” but let’s be honest when some major falling out happens in your life it is not easily forgotten. Especially by the ones who were hurt along the away. The day you come to a realization of something and can say what you learned from it and thank someone for showing you that experience is definitely true forgiveness. So I say thank you ex boyfriend LOL.
NUMBER FOUR: “Some pursue happiness, others create it” – Author Unknown
Have you ever encountered an individual that has their mind so set on pursuing the perfect “happiness” that they are too stressed out to realize the simplicity of creating it? This may sound silly to some, but creating the little pieces of happiness each day is what creates the most greatest feeling of all. Being happy everyday is true happiness. Trust me I’m not happy all day everyday, but finding happiness in each day will really change your life.
NUMBER FIVE: “The man who has done his best has done everything”- Charles M. Schwab
All we can do is our best. But ensure that what you are giving, is in fact your best.
NUMBER SIX: “You get what you give” -?
Is that an official quote from someone? LOL. I just googled it and all sorts of different things came up. Anyway, I had an instructor tell me and a class full of bright eyed students that once and it really stuck. Especially now as a blogger whose dream is to be able to do this full time. I am doing my best to give my all to this which means putting full time hours into blogging as well as putting full time hours into my corporate job. Sometimes that means kissing my husband good night at 11pm and working a couple more hours before I call it a night.
NUMBER SEVEN: “Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great” -John Rockefeller
Basically, don’t settle. Good is good, but great is GREAT! We may get comfortable in a state that we are at which is totally fine, but if you want more don’t be afraid to go for it. What’s the worst thing that can happen? You go back to good?
NUMBER EIGHT: “It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan” -Eleanor Roosevelt
Truth. Make a list of steps you need to take to accomplish whatever you are wishing for. I promise you’ll get there much faster 😉
NUMBER NINE: “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” -Arthur Ashe
Now that’s deep. Sometimes when I think about all of the things I want to accomplish in the future it’s easy to think “ugh, if only I had this or if only I can do this I could make it happen so much quicker.” I have to remember, baby steps. I need to start with where I am today and once I remember that I realize what I can do is a lot and what I have is much more than I even knew.
NUMBER TEN: “Ask and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock and the door will be opened for you.” – Jesus
Ummm, enough said. Pray. It really works.
Okay, enough of my Life Coach in training post LOL. I actually have many more that I like to remind myself of on the daily, but I figured most people may stop reading at 10! I just really wanted to share these with you because we all have a choice of how we choose to react to every situation. Life isn’t perfect and when we want great things we must go through obstacles to get there. I’m not just talking about career wise, but life in general. Unfortunately, it isn’t all rainbows and sunshine, but if we keep a positive outlook it is all achievable I promise you. You may see that I often hashtag #liveauthentically and #goodvibesonly in my social media because truly that’s what I want to surround our lives with. Surrounding yourselves with people who define these 2 things will really make EVERYTHING in life seem so much easier. 🙂
P.S. I bought both of these tees in store at Marshalls. Unfortunately, I cannot find the exact ones online, but I have linked up similar graphic styles below.
Thank you so much again for stopping and taking the time to read my jibber jabber 🙂 I appreciate you!
Wishing you all a wonderful week! Let me know if you have to refer back to one of these quotes! 🙂
