Positive Quotes

I have to say, I'm a hug fan of positive quotes. Whenever I need a quick pick up, I read few quotes and it always puts me in a better mood.
One of the keys to success is to have a positive outlook on life and to stay determined and focused. Often, by being very serious, you are doing nothing but making yourself more stressed. It is at times like these that you really need something to make you feel better and relax so you can deal with life in a better mind set. That's when positive quotes come very handy. That's why I decided to share with you once a week some of my favorites, because I believe, ''less is more''.

Please enjoy reading the inspirational quotes and sayings below.

1.) If you are angry at a loved one, hug that person and mean it. You may not want to hug at the moment, but that's even bigger reason to do so. It's hard to stay angry when someone shows they love you, and that's precisely what happens, when we hug each other. Sometimes when you are angry you may have the right and the reason to be, but that doesn't mean you should let an argument to ruin your day.
''To love a person is to learn the song that is in their heart and sing it to them when they have forgotten.''
~Thomas Chandler~

2.) ''Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great.''
~Mark Twain~

3.) ''Do not wait, the time will never be ''just right''. Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command and better tools will be found as you go along.''
~Napoleon Hill~

4.) ''See yourself living in abundance and you will attract it. It always works, it works every time with every person.''
~Bob Proctor~

''If you have built castles in the air, your work not need to be lost, that is where they should be. Now, all you have to do is to put foundations under them.''
~Henry David Thoreau~

Your imagination is amazing and combined with positive thinking, you can get great results.

"Imagination is more real that then the world you see, because the world you see comes from what you imagine and believe! What you believe and feel to be true is what will be your life."

In summer 2009, on my way to work, I had a usual journey, by being stuck in the tube, not able to get a seat and feeling frustrated. There was hardly any air and I was slowly getting angry. Looking around everybody look tired and irritated. Well, who wouldn't be at 6.30 in the morning. Then I spotted poster on the wall. It was a picture of couple looking at each other, holding hands. Behind was a scenery of Marakech. Somehow I couldn't get my eyes of it, looking at it I felt peace, relax and all I could think was: ''Wau, I wish to be there one day.''

On the way from work I saw the picture again and in a next few weeks, the poster was everywhere.... in the magazines, Metro papers and at the tube station. Each time I saw it, I imagined it to be there. One day, we went out with my boyfriend and I pointed at the poster.
''Look, wouldn't be wonderful to go there on holidays?''
''Yes, it would.'' He replied.
''I have never been there'' I continued  ''Look again, it looks so magical.''
''Yes, it does'' he smilled, ''but we already have our holidays booked for next year in June, so maybe in two years time.'' He then pulled me closer and hugged me.
''I know, I'm just saying that it look very nice'' with that sentence I stopped talking about it. But whenever I was passing by and saw it, I keep imagining being there.

After 3 months of seeing picture everywhere, one day I came home and my boyfriend welcome me at the door.
''I've got a big news for you'' he smilled.
''Tell me, tell me!'' I couldn't wait to hear, what the good news was.
''Well, my brother is getting married.''
''That's amazing news, I'm really happy for them'' I replied.
''That's not all'' he continued ''Wedding is in May and they decided to get married in Marrakech. So, it looks like we are going to Morroco next year.''
''Really, they are getting married in Marrakech, how romantic.''

Months passed by, we went to Marrakech and the wedding was amazing. Everything was just perfect.
And about us???
We stayed there for one week and managed to see surroundings of Marrakech and it look even more beautiful then in the pictures.

The funniest part is that at the end I went to Marrakech one months before our original summer holidays. That's just show how fast our imagination work.
The only time I was thinking about Marrakech was, when I saw the pictures in the tube, or in the magazines and I got there 9 months after first seeing the picture.
For some people 9 months seems to be a long time, but not for me. We didn't plan to go there and when I mentioned it to my boyfriend he replied, maybe in 2 years time.
So it shows, that if you dreamed about something, more often you can do it, more faster it can happen.


Whatever you can imagine is waiting for you and the way to make it visible is to harness the force of love by imagining and feeling what you love. You are the driver of your mind, so take charge and keep it busy with your instructions by telling it where you want it to go. 

''Everything is out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it.''
~Jack Canfield~

The Elephant Rope

The Elephant Rope
As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.
He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”
The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?
Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.

“Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts.”

“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.''
~Dale Carnegie~

I love myself no matter what.
I'm proud of all I have accomplished.
Each decision I make creates new opportunities.
I am deserving all the good things in my life.
I am my own unique self - special, creative and wonderful

For positive affirmations to work you first have to create a new habit of consistently practicing your daily positive affirmations.An affirmation is a statement that you make to yourself.
Our self-talk, the things we say to ourself, is very important because it directly effects our conscious and subconscious mind. We listen to everything we say to ourself.You need to be aware of what you tell yourself.
''Be conscious of your thoughts, be persistent and don't give up on yourself.”

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Attracting money!

Money, money, money. We all need it and want it, but is it really that easy to get them?

I know it must sound crazy when someone tells you think yourself rich, picture yourself saving a ton of money and you will get it. But yes, it works, the more you think about good things, the quicker you will attract it into your life.

Our mind is the source of all creation. I f you want to attract a life of prosperity and abundance, you have to stop complaining, because thoughts that bring about bad feelings means you are ''not'' on the right track. I know it's hard to think you have a lot's of money, when it's not true, but it's worth to give it a go. All you have to do is reprogram your mind and the best way to do it is by using an affirmations.

Affirmations and visualizations are an extremely powerful tools to change your life. Every thought you think and every word you say is an affirmation. Our self-talk, the things we say to ourself is very important, because it directly effects our conscious and subconsious mind. We listen everything we say to ourself. The time for affirmations to become a reality is depending on your beliefs, how powerful the positive statement is and how determined you are to make a change in your life.
 As you develop the habit of using positive affirmations in your life, you will begin to explore your feelings, beliefs and desire to continue to change and to create a life full of joy and fulfillment.

Below is a collection of affirmations for attracting money into your life. Remember that they work best if you really tune into the feelings of what you are focusing on. Say them with confidence and try to feel the essence of the intent. 


I choose to live an abundant life.

Every day I am getting more and more money.

I am a magnet for money, I have now more than I need.

Money comes to me easily.

Money loves me.

The affirmations about money that I repeat attract money to me.

My financial situation is improving day by day.

I am a magnet for money, money loves me!

Decide what you want, believe you can have it, believe you deserve it, believe it is possible for you. Close your eyes and visualize having what you already want and the feeling of already having it.

"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions.''

Just keep trying and don't give up.

 Is it really possible to achieve anything you want in your life?
Yes, but sometimes it takes longer than we think and many times we give up just before we achieve what we wanted and dream about it for so long. Success is a journey and you become successful as soon as you begin the journey.

I have to admit I used to be very impatient and always wanted everything right away. But then I learned that on the way to achieve what ever we dream about, we have to come across certain obstacles. It is a test how strong and how determined we are. It may be very hard at the beginning and you may fail, but that's ok. Just keep trying and don't give up. There are no shortcuts to life's greatest achievements.
 The other day I came across this short inspirational stories below of failure turned into fame by amazing people we all know and respect. Please, read them and remember that we all can achieve what ever we want.

1.) Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor for lack of ideas. Disney also went to bankrupt  several times, before he build ''Disneyland.'' But he never gave up.

2.) When the first ''Chicken Soup for the Soul'' book was completed, it was turned down by ''33'' publishers in New York and another ''90'' at the American Booksellers Association convention in Anaheim, California.....before Health Communications,Inc., finally agreed to publish it. The major New York publishers said: ''Nobody wants to read a book of short little stories.''
Since then more than 8 million copies of the original Chicken Soup for the Soul book have been sold. The series, which has grown to ''32'' titles, in ''31'' languages has sold more than 53 million copies.

3.) In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry, fired Elvis Presley after one performance. He told Presley: ''You ain't going nowhere...son. You ought to go back to driving a truck.'' After that, Elvis Presley went on to become the most popular singer in America.

''As you start to walk out on the way, the way appears.''

''You can do anything you wish to do, have anything you wish to have, be anything you wish to be.'' ~Robert Collier~

A positive attitude brings strength, energy and initiative. Positive thoughts are not enough, you also need to have positive feelings and positive actions.

What are you passionate about? What do you love to do?

Fill your mind with light, happiness, hope, feelings of security - strength and soon your life will reflect these qualities.
