Famous Quotes

By Tiara

A well-rounded person has hobbies and activities that make them happy. They are people who have fun at home, work, and with others. If you want to know what makes someone feel happier, look into their hobbies and see what kind of things they’re doing.

It can be anything from running to water aerobics to painting to reading. It doesn’t matter how much money these things cost as long as you enjoy it!

Having hobbies is a way to relax and focus on something other than school or work. When you do this, your mental state improves and you feel happier.

These types of behaviors are learned so anyone can pick up on them.

“A good workman is modest in his success, and modest in his failures

famous quotes for how

Many people have left famous quotes or motivational messages to tell us how to achieve our goals. But few actually define what their goal is, and even fewer clarify why it’s important to them.

So, what are they telling you to do if you realize that your life has become more about paying bills than spending time with those you care about? Or if you feel like you’re working hard but your job doesn’t seem to be going anywhere?

It might be time to evaluate whether this is the right thing for you to be doing. You want to make sure that you're investing your energy in activities that leave you feeling fulfilled – not overwhelmed.

“Happiness is an inside job

famous quotes for how

We can’t feel happy unless we are doing something that we like to do, and liking how you live your life comes from within yourself.

It doesn’t come from outside sources such as money or status. It isn’t inspired by what happened yesterday or worry about what might happen tomorrow.

It’s just you, being conscious every minute of this moment.”

- Elizabeth Gilbert

I’ve mentioned before here on my website that I am a big fan of meditation. Along with yoga, it is one of the greatest things you can add into your daily routine.

Meditation has been shown to boost happiness. And I agree! Who wouldn’t want that in their day to day lives?

So if you’re looking to learn more practical ways to be happier, try experimenting with some form of mediation. Whether it’s Buddhist mindfulness, Christian prayer, or simply taking time to breathe, do whatever works for you.

“The only way out is through

famous quotes for how

A lot of people have famous quotes that describe how to get things done. They are usually short, simple, and motivational.

But what if I told you that there’s a trick in finding motivation though?

It’s not telling yourself why you should do something or talking about benefits of doing it, but instead asking yourself questions. And the answers you find make it easier to do things!

I’m going to share with you some of my favorite motivating questions along with some examples. Give them a try and see what works for you!"

Running goal: Run a 5K

Question: What are you afraid will happen if you don't run today?

Example answer: I'll miss my workout

Why this answer is good: This question gets at the root cause of your fear. You're afraid of missing your workouts, so you add extra pressure onto yourself by saying you'll feel bad if you don't run today.

By identifying the source of your fears, you can then work on reducing them. If you worry about hurting yourself while running, you may want to start practicing walking first to reduce stress.

Running isn't really scary as long as you've practiced before. So, you can relax and focus more on doing your normal exercise routine rather than worrying about whether you'll manage to do it later.

“No one can take your happiness from you

famous quotes for how

Many people’s lives seem to get more and more chaotic as they grow up, which is why it can be hard to find their place in this world.

Heck, even adults don’t know what they want sometimes!

But there are some things we all need to learn how to do, to make sure we stay happy.

And if you have a goal that seems out of reach at times, maybe trying to figure out what you need to learn about yourself is the key to moving forward.”

Nancy Heidbaur says it well in her article titled, “It's okay to feel like you're not quite certain where your life is going. That's totally normal.” She writes:

"Feeling uncertain about your next move or whether you've made the right decision is completely natural. We're constantly changing; our goals change, and ourselves changes along with them."

She goes onto say: "This feeling is part of what makes us human."

So, instead of getting overwhelmed by these thoughts, try doing something you have been wanting to do for a while. Take an action – anything really!- and see what happens.

“Live your life to the fullest

famous quotes for how

A famous quote about living your life is ‘live your life to the fullest’. This seems like an odd statement, but it makes sense when you think about it. If you are living your life trying to maximize how much you are spending or how many points you have in your lifestyle category, then you aren’t really living your life. You are probably living someone else’s life.

When you live your own life, you should be thinking about what you want to do next. And you can’t do that if you don’t know who you are as person. So, one of the first things to do is figure out what you enjoy doing. Then, keep exploring ways to add more of these experiences into your daily routine.

Another way to live your life to the fullest is to try new foods. There are so many different tastes and textures out there! The possibilities are endless. Who knows, you could find something amazing you never knew existed before now.

And while we talk about food, why not learn how to cook? Sure, some people were born with the ability to make a great meal, but everyone can pick up some easy recipes at least once during their lives. It will boost your self-confidence and knowledge of good eating habits.

Older students might remember this phrase from high school, but I bet most young adults today have no idea what it means.

“No man is an island

famous quotes for how

We are constantly interacting with other people, and we use quotes to show how much we admire their work or achievements.”

Well, some men are more influential than others – just look at our national monuments! But as powerful as these individuals were, they didn’t stay alone.

They had relationships that influenced them in positive ways and made them happier. They shared their stories with the world, built off of each other’s success, and celebrated each other’s accomplishments.

It is important to acknowledge your weaknesses and ask for help, but don’t go through life being dependent on someone else. Build up your own confidence so you feel comfortable asking for things and giving orders to others.

You will be less likely to rely on others and contribute to team spirit. Don’t be afraid to take responsibility, even if it feels scary at first.

“Opportunity knocks, but not when you want it to

famous quotes for how

A lot of people have a tendency to get in their own way. They don’t believe that opportunities will come to them so they make sure none do. Sometimes we get in our own way by limiting the possibilities with what we are willing to do.

If you aren’t going to go out then you won’t find yourself having conversations with people or experiencing new things. You’ll stay within your comfort zone and avoid taking risks.

You’ll also miss out on what life has to offer.”

Famous quotes about opportunity show that being aware of your limitations is a good thing. It helps keep you from staying in rut and prevents you from wasting time and resources looking for something that doesn’t exist.

But at the same time, there’s an important difference between being aware of your limits and being too limited.

It’s easy to think that because you can’t take certain actions, you should never try to do anything. That wouldn’t be true, though.

By avoiding situations and opportunities that feel beyond your control, you stop yourself from doing those things that might challenge you or teach you something new.

“The best way to get what you want is to go get it

famous quotes for how

We’ve all heard this famous saying, but few of us actually take its advice. More times than not, we hold onto false beliefs about who we are as people or what we can do and then don�t pursue our dreams because we believe we can’t succeed.

It’s so easy to fall into that habit and to start believing that there’s no point in trying unless I have a ton of money sitting around waiting to be spent. Or unless I’m really intelligent, and therefore, able to only achieve success through being very smart, which makes me feel even more limited.

I’d like to tell you something different. Something better.

Something that doesn’t put such limitations on your life. A thing that takes away all the reasons why you might think you can’t succeed by making you doubt yourself and your potential.

A thing that reminds you that you’re already successful, every time you wake up and decide to live your life according to your own rules.
