Your favorite inspirational quote/mantra/etc.

What's your favorite inspirational quote? Your mantra? Etc. I love reading them. :)

Below are a few of mine.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
-Marianne Williamson

“What if I fall? Oh,but my darling,what if you fly?”
-Erin Hanson

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it."
-Steve Jobs

"Listen to the mustn'ts child, listen to the don'ts.
Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts.

I LOVE quotes, I have so many favorites. These are a few.

From The Emperor's Club.

Great ambition and conquest without contribution is without significance. What will your contribution be? How will history remember you?

Comparison is the thief of joy.

You get what you work for, not what you wish for.

You're always one decision away from a totally different life.

It is what it is. Accept it and move on.

I want the kind of marriage that makes my kids want to get married.

Always remember to fall asleep with a dream and wake up with a purpose.

When looking back doesn't interest you anymore, you know you're doing something right.

Take chances when you're young so that you can tell stories when you're old.

Be stubborn about your goals.

You can tell when people are truly happy. Their energy is genuine.

And suddenly you just know that it's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.

If I could give you one thing in life, I would give you the ability to see yourself through my eyes, only then would you realize how special you are to me.

It's a funny one, but I've always loved it:

Re: Your favorite inspirational quote/mantra/etc.

When it rains look for rainbows,
When it's dark look
For stars

Be with a guy who ruins your lipstick,not
Your mascara

And my fav

I believe in pink
I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner
I believe in kissing
Kissing a lot
I believe in being strong
When everything
Seems
To be going wrong
I believe in happy girls
Are the prettiest girls
I believe that tomorrow is another day
And I believe in miracles

one that helped me during my weight loss journey was "what you eat in private is what you show in public". It really helped me think twice about what I was eating and helped me make healthier food choices.
