Yes! Yes, I am actually. Yep, the benefits of a positive thinking attitude, though no cure-all for happiness and fulfillment, are undoubted. And I'm positive these quotes help you get there, oh yes I am. You will:
Remember, developing a positive attitude is how success-types (from unflustered Mums and Dads to work-at-home-alones to contenders on Pop Idol to millionaire entrepreneurs to Hollywood A-listers, etc.) were able to be successful in the first place.
So let the quotes begin...
"He is able who thinks he is able."
"If you look at what you have in life, you'll always have more. If you look at what you don't have in life, you'll never have enough."
-- Oprah Winfrey
"Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously and never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop this picture!"
-- Dr. Norman Vincent Peale
"Success is often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable."
-- Coco Chanel
"Every achiever that I have ever met says, 'My life turned around when I began to believe in me'."
-- Dr. Robert Schuller
(Hmm, how simple (and magnificent) all our lives would be if we could do this simple thing, eh! That's what the Desiderata poem is all about, too, positively believing in yourself!)
"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence."
-- Helen Keller
"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time."
-- Thomas Edison
"Focus on your potential instead of your limitations."
-- Alan Loy McGinnis
"If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you got a problem. Everything else is inconvenience."
-- Robert Fulghum
"Inspiration does exist, but it must find you working."
-- Pablo Picasso
"You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you."
-- Brian Tracy
"A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before we changed."
-- Earl Nightingale
"Anything's possible. You can be told you have a 90% chance or a 50% chance or a 1% chance, but you have to believe, and you have to fight."
-- Lance Armstrong
"Failure is an event, not a person. Yesterday ended last night."
-- Zig Ziglar
(This quote is another reason why fear of failure must absolutely be abolished in us all!)
"The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can't do."
-- Dennis Waitley
"Put all your excuses aside and remember this: YOU are capable."
-- Zig Ziglar
"Attitude is your acceptance of the natural laws, or your rejection of the natural laws."
-- Jim Rohn
"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does."
-- William James
(How about that for encouraging someone with low self esteem, eh!)
Okay, I'll leave it to YouTube and Brain Quotes for the final positive attitude quote (well, quotations really)...
