How To Use These Quotes In Your Daily Life:


Quotes are only useful if you apply the motivation that you found within them, and through them in your actual day to day life. In order to do so, I prefer the following steps

  1. every morning I take a random quote out of the quote jar – or sometimes, I use a quote that strikes me particularly deep from my morning reading time, and write the quote in my journal and to-do list pages.
  2. the small piece of paper upon which the quote is written will be placed where I can see it often – if I leave the house, I attach it with a clip to the front of my personal size Filofax planner which I use as my wallet –  you could just place it in your wallet or on-the-go note-taking system, and I read it, and contemplate it throughout the day – if I am at my desk, I will leave it next to my computer, where I can see the quote throughout the day.
  3. If I am inspired to do so, I will use it as a journaling prompt for my end of the day journaling.

You can use this same principle to utilize the power of affirmations to inspire positive thinking.

35 Morning Quotes: Inspirational Words To Kickstart Your Day




  1. Regarding Roy’s quote of substituting negative thoughts with a better and healthier mindset, how do you do that? I’m asking for myself because most of my thoughts are always towards the negative side of everything, how does one go from a completely negative perception into a completely positive one, what is involved when I comes to that? Therapy?

      One step at a time – I would start with mindfulness, which is observing the present moment, rather than trying to change it. Once you got some practice in that front, you can start with a simple gratitude routine, as follows:

      Get yourself a rock, or a gemstone – whatever resonates with you, and put it on your nightstand. Every night before going to sleep, pick up the rock and think of something you are really grateful for – that can be anything.

      After this becomes a habit – again around 21 to 30 Days – you can add a gratitude journal and other practices to your day to day routine. As with everything, a gradual build-up, leads to lasting change, jumping into a practice or a change of thinking will only lead you to failure.
