“Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
- Abraham Lincoln
The mind is an incredibly powerful tool – and a trainable tool, at that!
So do you spend time and energy training your brain for success and happiness?
Or do you find yourself constantly focusing on the negative, complaining about your work, your spouse, your physical appearance, your finances, etc.?
You see, when we focus on the negative things in our lives, we are training our brains to see the worst in situations. This leads to feelings of discouragement, regret, and unfulfillment.
So, if you’ve been feeling uninspired, I’ve rounded up some of my personal favorite quotes to reignite motivation and positivity in your life! Enjoy :-)
