Beautify your life, stay inspired and unlock your magic with these ten uplifting quotes!
Spring has arrived, flowers are in bloom and it's nesting season for many birds in the southern hemisphere. The change of season wherever we are in the world, is an invitation to declutter all the spaces into which our presence flows, including the mind, body, home, relationships and workspaces, in preparation for better things to enter our lives. This is an opportune time to reinvent ourselves and play with the prevailing energies to create something new, exciting and worth-while.
Here are ten quotes to help you stay empowered and well-poised for success.
In life, the first thing you must do is decide what you really want. Weigh the cost and the results. Are the results worthy of the costs? Then make up your mind completely and go after your goal with all your might.
- Alfred A. Montapert
You're the director of your life. Your passion, intentions and attention wield creative power - focus them predominantly on what matters to you and on what you want. Take baby steps. Be adaptable. However you choose to do it - get started, review, learn, optimise, repeat. Take note that what works for others may not necessarily work for you. Engage your discernment to align with the guidance, wisdom and insights that are relevant to you and
are appropriate for you.
2. New Beginnings
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.
- Richard Bach
You may have experienced many endings in your world. Circumstances, relationships and numerous elements may be constantly shifting, but your innate ability to create anew and become something greater never ceases. Your new journey has only just begun. Expect and allow extraordinary things to flow into your life. #KeepCalm and begin again!
3. Shift Your Perspective
It isn't a change of scenery needed to make life better. Sometimes it simply requires opening your eyes.
- Richelle E. Goodrich
Often, the things we have been searching for are right under our nose. Opening our eyes is a matter of choice, perspective and readiness. Your perception and dominant focus can free you or imprison you. Celebrate your past achievements and experiences, then rivet your time and energy on what you're now creating. Write and tell a new story about who you are becoming. Develop new skills and unlock the best version of yourself. Be on the lookout for serendipitous opportunities, resources and solutions that show up in your environment every day.
4. Savour Your Life
Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
- Eddie Cantor
Breathe deeply. Hold a safe space for yourself. Ground yourself in the present. Forget the
10 000 things you need to do for a moment and allow yourself to relax. Be here now. Expect all things no matter what they are and where you stand to turn out for your highest and greatest good. Keep moving forward at your own pace and don't worry about what others are doing. Explore fun and simple ways to bring ease into your days.
5. Mental Power
You are today where your thoughts have brought you: you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.
- James Allen
Know that you can direct your habits of thought through practice and observation. You can choose how much or how far to engage each one or not at all. Each thought gives rise to emotion which moves you into action. You are the captain, steering the ship of your life, using your mind (the power of your attention) and emotions (the power that underpins manifestation). You have the ability to fill your life with joy and amazing adventures.
6. Self Care & Compassion
How do you define 'taking care of yourself?' Create a new self-care practice today. Observe your comfort level when it comes to being good to yourself. Discomfort is a wise teacher.
- Caroline Myss & Peter Occhiogrosso
Practicing unconditional self compassion in its healthiest forms not only brings you a profound inner sense of freedom, buoyancy and well-being, it also enables you to purposefully practice your boundless love in service to others. For we ultimately live for one another. Let go of trying to explain who you are, start letting yourself be who YOU are and take loving care of yourself.
7. Laugh Out Loud
Lighten up, just enjoy life, smile more, laugh more and don't get so worked up about things.
- Kenneth Branagh
Everyone living on Earth has come to understand that life has ups and downs, as well as a gigantic spectrum of experiences to explore. A logical antidote to being tossed about by the winds of change, uncertainty and surprises is to get grounded, find our balance and become heart centred. Besides taking deep breaths to the count of ten, laughing out loud is one of the quickest and easiest tricks for diffusing tension, stress and anxiety. So put your feet up and watch your favourite comedy or simply find anything in your day that makes you smile.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Leadership involves pushing back the frontiers, questioning the status quo and exploring new solutions. You may not have all the answers to your questions right now. But you have them all within you and around you. It's a matter of timing and relevance based on where you are now and where you want to go, be, do. The answers and ideas you are seeking will always find you along your journey. Keep an open mind and heart; and your curiosity alive.
If you always put a limit on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.
- Bruce Lee
To be or not to be? To go or not go? To do or not do? Your greatness, evolution and fulfilment all begin at the end of your comfort zone. Don't let fear cripple you. Being cautious and discerning is wise, but stunting your own growth and well-being is of no use. Take calculated risks, say yes to new opportunities and to your magnificent destiny.
Success is knowing your purpose in life, growing to reach your maximum potential, and sowing seeds that benefit others.
- John C. Maxwell.
Sow your seeds of love and success far and wide. Share your creative and life giving forces with the world. Unleash your inner magic, spread your wings and thrive!
