Arianna Huffington
The old adage that we should live every day as if it were our last usually means that we shouldn’t wait until death is imminent to begin prioritizing the things that really matter.

Sean D. Young
The lesson is to focus on finding the right first step. Put all of your energy into achieving that first little step. Take the time to reflect on your progress. And then repeat.

Richard Reed
The opposite of question everything is question nothing. And if you don’t question things, there’s no knowledge, no learning, no creativity, no freedom of choice, no imagination. 

Gretchen Rubin
For a happy life, it’s important to cultivate an atmosphere of growth—the sense that we’re learning new things, getting stronger, forging new relationships, making things better, helping other people.

Shauna Niequist
Along this passage, my life has become decidedly less impressive. It has, though, become so much more joyful, here on the inside, here where it matters only to me and to the people closest to me.

David Brooks
Love depends on the willingness of each person to be vulnerable and it deepens that vulnerability. It works because each person exposes their nakedness and the other rushes to meet it.

Sayan Chakraborty
Your old thoughts and beliefs will only change if the dynamic inertia of your desire for a new thought is greater than the static inertia of the existing thoughts.

Ali Berman
When we have purpose, our task is never quite complete so it always needs attention. It’s a lifelong goal or way of living that we aspire to.

Jack Kornfield
Pay attention to the movie showing in your life right now. Notice the plot. It might be an adventure, a tragedy, a romance, a soap opera, or a battle. “All the world’s a stage,” wrote Shakespeare.

Dan Sullivan and Catherine Nomura
You learn something from everything you do, whether it's small or large, or goes right or wrong. Analyze these components of your experiences to help you figure out what to improve and what to divest.......

Mark Nepo
Life has taught me that, regardless of what we face, effort and faith will lead us into the larger stream of life that holds us. And being held by the larger stream of life is another way to describe grace.

Alex Pattakos
Human beings are, by nature, creatures of habit. Searching for a life that is both predictable and within our comfort zone, we rely on routine and, for the most part, learned thinking patterns.

Rhonda Sciortino
Strong people see adversity as an opportunity to improve their lives. They choose to see adversity as the channel through which their dreams can emerge.

Norman E Rosenthal
Understand the powerful forces of history that shape your world. Like a compass to a sailor, such understanding can help you chart your course through life.

Ryan Holiday
Cultivate the ability to judge yourself accurately and honestly. Look inward to discern what you’re capable of and what it will take to unlock that potential.

Shannon Kaiser
Replace your worries about what could go wrong with what could go right, and watch how your life unfolds. It will unfold beautifully and you will feel abundant, happy, and free.

Thich Nhat Hanh
The most important person is always the person you are with, who is right before you, for who knows if you will have dealings with any other person in the future? 

Neville Goddard
Whenever the actions of the inner body match the actions which the outer must take to appease desire, that desire will be realized.

Linda Kaplan Thaler
Talent plays only a small part in the commercial’s success. If we were to be honest, two other, far less celebrated qualities—stamina and resilience—are the real stars.

Bob Litwinn
You acknowledge that there are forces at work you cannot see that could be helping you, showing you a new way, giving you hope.

Lindsay C. Gibson
Success is success. People who have successfully followed their dreams have learned the art of nurturing and tagging their success moments, and they take every bit of credit for them.

Bernard Roth
If you are doing something, then no matter how many times you hit a barrier, or how frustrated your original strategy becomes, you intend to get the job done, and you bring to bear on it the inner resolve and attention necessary to fulfill your intention.

Yvonne Teoh Bource
I observed that the greatest hurdle to overcome was to not only acknowledge that we have the power within us to create our life any way we choose, but to accept the full responsibility that goes with that acknowledgment.

Rosamund Stone Zander
Examine, one by one, the words you are using to define a problem that confronts you. Redefine any words that are causing fear in you, or resistance, or that imply a struggle, until the struggle and fear subside.

Martin E. P. Seligman
The optimists, who are confronted with the same hard knocks of this world, think about misfortune in the opposite way. They tend to believe defeat is just a temporary setback, that its causes are confined to this one case.

Melvyn L. Fein.
People who are brave enough to stand up to life's hardships have a better chance of surmounting them. They are thus more likely to acquire satisfying jobs and loving relationships.

Brendon Burchard
No matter your position, circumstances, or opportunities in life, you always have the freedom of mind to choose how you experience, interpret, and, ultimately, shape your world.

Jason Fried
Momentum fuels motivation.  It keeps you going.  It drives you.  Without it, you can't go anywhere.  If you aren't motivated by what you're working on, it won't be very good.

Apurva Chamaria and Gaurav Kakkar
You obviously want to connect with those who matter, because it is by networking with them that you can effectively engage with them and explore business opportunities.

Bob Bowman
The best coaches, the best bosses, the best parents, the best leaders are the ones who show their people not just how to get better but how to motivate themselves to get better.

Bob Burg
I was brought up with a belief that there are two types of people in the world. There are people who get rich, and there are people who do good. My belief system said you’re one or the other, you can’t be both.

Richard Templar
The power of positive thought is huge. Just by consciously acknowledging your achievements along the way, you’ll feel more successful.

Hugh G. Byrne
Our habits—how we think, speak, feel, and act—directly impact our well-being. More broadly, they reinforce patterns that shape our entire experience of living.

Paulo Coelho
It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting, he thought, as he looked again at the position of the sun, and hurried his pace.

Donald Trump
There is always the possibility of failure, but there is a greater chance of success if you actually try to do something versus doing nothing.

Kevin Mitchell Quotes
He was so wonderfully coordinated a mover, so smooth and powerful, yet light-footed and balletic, that everything around him moved to his rhythm.

Julia Cameron
Each tiny change empowers you as you act on your authentic interests. Each small change prepares the path for you to make larger changes in a life that you are free to build to your own unique design.

Mitch Albom
So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things.

Greg S Reid
"Life is not something that just happens to you. You are not merely a reactor. You are an actor. Of course, you can’t always control your circumstances, but you can control how you deal with them."

Cheryl Strayed
Allow your acceptance of the universality of suffering to be a transformative experience. You do that by simply looking at what pains you squarely in the face and then moving on.

You may not be able to keep someone from doing or saying certain things. But you certainly do not have to permit him or her to decide for you how you are going to think or feel or act as a result. It is a final choice that is always yours.
