Quotes on Life Lessons
Worry is thinking that has turned toxic. It is jarring music that goes
round and round and never comes to either climax or conclusion.
Harold B. Walker
Now it stands to reason that a person who is thinking about a concrete
and worthwhile goal is going to reach it, because that's what he's
thinking about - and we become what we think about.
Conversely, the person who has no goal, who doesn't know
where he's going, and whose thoughts must therefore be thoughts
of confusion, anxiety, fear, and worry will become what he thinks about.
Earl Nightingale, How to Completely Change Your Life in 30 Seconds
Your past, present and future are moulded by your thoughts.
Remember - your thinking is your life's autobiography.
James Borg, Mind Power 2nd edn
Poems about Life
If you could change your future and achieve all of your goals
by simply thinking about it, of course it would be perfect.
Joshua Pope; Michael Wozniak, Why Are You Looking At This?
Habits that you have had for years can be maintained
only by thinking about them in the future in the same way you
thought about them in the past.
Helen Mayhew, Assert Yourself
I'm always thinking about creating. My future starts when I wake
up every morning . . . Every day I find something creative to do with my life.
Quotes to Live By
Thinking about the future or the past too much can wreak
havoc in your life. It can keep you from enjoying the little things
and joys in life.
Emily MacLeod, Mindfulness
Death can come at any age, but the pride of life fools a person into
thinking that day is far away.
John Buttrick, Fighting Temptation
There is a basic law that like attracts like. Negative thinking definitely attracts
negative results. Conversely, if a person habitually thinks optimistically
and hopefully, his positive thinking sets in motion creative forces,
and success instead of eluding him flows toward him.
Norman Vincent Peale Optimistic
Listening is the art and practice of putting someone else's speaking,
thinking and feeling needs ahead of your own. It is deliberate and
thoughtful, not contrived or self-serving. It fosters emotional
and intellectual reflection. It is an art, because it involves more
than mere technique, and because it is very much about the
communication and affirmation of feelings.
Marc Wong, Thank You for Listening
Always be you, never be someone else; don't pretend to like something that you don't; don't consider anyone a friend who you can't be yourself around; live your life as who you are not who you think others want you to be like.
Inspirational Quotes for Kids
When you change the way you think, you can change the way you feel.
David D. Burns, When Panic Attacks
Some people assume, falsely, that just thinking about a project is not
actually planning unless there are steps laid out as in the form of a plan.
Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring, and integrity, they think of you.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
As crazy and weird as the imagination of children can be,
we need to encourage that type of thinking. Even participate in
imaginary events with our kids.
Jason Hall, Captain Dad's Treasure Map
Imaging is positive thinking carried one step further. In imaging,
one does not merely think about a hoped-for goal; one "sees" or visualizes
it with tremendous intensity, reinforced by prayer.
Norman Vincent Peale, Positive Imaging
Thinking about your New Year, about taking away all your challenges,
however with each new year comes challenges but also great
opportunities to learn and grow. So my wish for your New Year is one that will see you rise above the challenges that arise.
People spend their days worrying and thinking about the big things:
acing that big test, getting that big salaried job, going on that big date.
They fail to notice the sweet little things that make life so special.
Robyn McComb, The #1 Rule of Happiness
A positive attitude helps you cope more easily with the daily affairs of life.
It brings optimism into your life, and makes it easier to avoid
worries and negative thinking.
Bill Mcdowell, Positive Thinking
Make every effort to change things you do not like.
If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking. You might find a new solution.
Maya Angelou, Letter to My Daughter
Many people resort to coaches, in order to change their life. But they
make the mistake of thinking that the answer to their problems
comes from the outside, and not from inside themselves.
Ian Berry, Coaching: Ask Better Questions, Become A Better Coach
The reason why so few people are agreeable in conversation
is that each is thinking more about what he intends to say than
about what others are saying, and we never listen when
we are eager to speak.
Francois La Rochefoucauld
If you want to move to a higher level of life, you have to be willing
to let go of some of your old ways of thinking and being and adopt new ones.
T. Harv Eker, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind
Simply put, active thinking engages the gears of the most powerful
tool there is for positive change and that tool is your mind.
The more your mind connects, strains, reflects, synthesizes
information, actions or behaviors the more apt you are to encourage
your own personal transformation or positive changes in thinking and behavior.
Byron Pulsifer, How To Attract Positive Energy Encouraging Poems
Positive thinking, simply put, can be defined as the process of taking
on an optimistic lens in order to manage stress in a better manner.
Jessica Minty, Codependency
When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind.
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind
They cannot handle the risks and stress involved in striving to be better and doing things that are not a part of their usual routine. They settle for mediocrity and familiarity and give up on their dreams and ambitions, thinking that it is better to live in the safety of their comfort zones than to live a life full of uncertainties.
Jamie Becker, Start Living
Positive thinking does not mean that there are zero problems,
but it means that you can cope and recover more easily, while
at the same time you are able to look at a brighter side of any situation.
John Franz, Positive Thinking
Tolerance is accepting differences in other people. It is thinking 'It is OK that you are different from me.'
Cynthia Amoroso , Tolerance (Values to Live By)
Beaches are places for recreation, contemplation, renewal and rejuvenation, communing with nature, and sometimes, while staring out to sea, thinking about our place in the universe.
Orrin H. Pilkey, The World's Beaches
Taking an interest in what others are thinking and doing is often
a much more powerful form of encouragement than praise.
When an old man gets to thinking of the years he's traveled through,
he hears again the laughter of the little ones he knew.
He isn't counting money, and he isn't planning schemes;
he's at home with friendly people in the shadow of his dreams.
Edgar A Guest, When An Old Man Gets to Thinking
"Thinking" itself is a strange subject to study. It can be unsettling to
learn that we don't objectively process the world, but instead that
the brain interprets everything around us in its own, unique way.
Ben Taylor, Thinking Basketball
Thought of the Day
The world is an opportunity to be distracted away from God
or an opportunity to be reunited with God in your thinking.
