Do You Believe A Few Words Can Inspire A Change In You?

Words can inspire a change in you, which is why I love motivational posts and motivational quotes.

Not only are they encouraging, but they have the  ‘hey, I never thought about things this way before’ factor.

Light bulb moments? I have quite a few of these and love writing about positive energy and thoughts. Today, I am sharing with you some of my favourite quotes to live by, and hope they will help inspire a change in you or someone you know.


1. Happiness

Happiness is a choice. I believe we can all be happy every single day of our lives even when things are not perfect.

Inspire a change in you by focusing on being happy every day.

It is a habit, so cultivate it.

 2. Success

inspire your life with success and going after you want

Success is what we strive for. In many areas of our lives we do our best to make success happen.

As parents, friends, coworkers, business owners, partners. The list goes on.
I love to read success stories. Inspire a change in you by focusing on your goals.

Share your plans with others but keep some of the details to yourself until the time is right.

3. Seek And You Will Find

I believe that you will always find what you are looking for. Good or bad.
Focusing on positive or negative is what you will see more of.

When you focus on the things that make you happy in life. The things that bring you joy, that is more of what you will see and what will manifest in your everyday life.

The same goes for seeing bad and negative things. Inspire a change in you and others but focusing on positive things everyday of your life.

Watch amazing things happen.

  4. Self-Confidence

We have all felt moments of feeling inferior. It is not pretty.
Sometimes we feel inferior about things we have no control over like skin colour, handicaps, social classes.

I have learned that no one can make you feel at a disadvantage or inferior unless you allow it.

Inspire a change in you by staying strong, growing self-confidence, and speaking positive affirmations.

  5. Embrace Challenges

A lot of times, we end up being or own worst enemy.
When we face challenges, we become frustrated, give up and are so hard on ourselves because we don’t achieve success on the first try.

When you face an obstacle, don’t go around it.

Inspire a change in you by facing challenges head on. In turn you will limit the obstacles you face.

The obstacle isn’t something standing in our way. It is the way that will guide you.

I love these, my favorite is “no one can make you inferior without your consent” I think this is a very relatable quote to many. In so many different ways. Great post.

I love motivational quotes as well and I keep a document with all my favourites. That Eleanor Roosevelt one is always great.

I try to focus on the positive in order to bring about positive changes in my life, sometimes even taking the time out to breathe and smile can turn a whole day around. There are some really lovely quotes here, I’ll be coming back!

I love, love the quotes you picked! I agree that happiness is a choice and I think it’s so empowering to say that we can never feel inferior unless we gives ourselves permission to feel this way! Thanks for sharing. – Mae

Interesting quotes. The quote for success made me laugh. Good one!

Lovely quotes!!! The first one is my fav! You are responsible for your own happiness! True that!!:)

Just had a conversation with someone about number 3! They said that sometimes you just have to wait and see, if it’s meant to be, it will come to you. I believe the opposite. If you want something, waiting is not going to make it happen, you have to get it for yourself.

So many great quotes. I particularly liked the Eleanor Roosevelt one.

This is awesome, I especially like the comment about not sharing everything that you know. I think I’m a pretty enlightened person but I have to watch how much I share. Not everyone else is as well meaning….lessons learned. Great post!

I really needed encouragement at this time and this was the perfect post! Thanks for the amazing quotes, especially fond of the success one!!

Oh that is so great Billy, I am glad the quotes were able to help you and uplift you. 🙂

I think the fifth one is my favorite. Since I am a new blogger, the obstacle is definitely my path. And there is always a light at the end of the tunnel!

Sheri @ A Busy Bees Life March 20, 2017 - 14:13

Yes there is, and don’t worry, I have not been at this for long either but I am enjoying it even though it can be hard at times. 🙂

Number 2 is funny! But some great inspiration here, I enjoyed reading it all.

Anmaria Djong March 20, 2017 - 10:15

I love all the quotes..especially “you will always find what you are looking for”. It is so very true.

It’s like we were on the same wavelength this morning when posting 🙂 I’ve been thinking a lot about happiness lately. Thanks for sharing this post. Triggered a lot of thought for me today!

Sheri @ A Busy Bees Life March 20, 2017 - 14:18

Yes Divya I was thinking the same thing earlier when I was on your page. I am glad our posts were able to help each other. I wish you happiness and everything your heart desires for the future. 🙂
