Here are some words of encouragement to improve your day

There is no such thing as ” too much encouragement” you can never over do it. The good thing is that encouraging someone, doesn’t cost a penny. It seems as though we are in a culture where a lot of people either take pleasure in downplaying others or they take pleasure in spreading their negative opinions. Growing up i have always heard the saying if you have nothing good to say, then it’s best you say nothing.” That saying is something that can never be too old. I can not understand what is gained from being negative or how hard can it be for people to say ” good job” or ” keep going” Or ” you got this.” I personally get great pleasure in encouraging others, I want to win and definitely want you to win, I want us all to see victory.

Press on, you can do it, you got this, you will win, don’t ever be discouraged.

These words of encouragement from some very famous and successful people should do nothing but inspire you:

“A word of encouragement during failure is worth more than a hour of praise after success. ”

Unknown

“The best revenge is massive success.”

Frank Sinatra

” It’s time for us all to stand and cheer for the doer, the achiever – the one who recognizes the challenges and does something about it.”

Vince Lombardi

“Press on – nothing can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent; Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Perseverance and determination alone are omnipotent .”

Calvin Coolidge

“It doesn’t matter who you are,where you come from. The ability to triumph, begins with you always.”

Oprah Winfrey

It doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you don’t stop”

Confucius

Believe you can and you are halfway there.”

Theodore Roosevelt

“Anything is possible if you’ve got enough nerve.”

J.K Rowling

Embrace uncertainty. Some of the most beautiful chapters in our lives won’t have a title until much later.”

Bob Goff

” When one door closes, another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.”

Alexander Graham Bell

Words are powerful

Based on the heading, how much more do I really need to say? Not much, but I’m going to say it anyway. Have you ever been given unsolicited advice? Or better yet, have you ever put your two cents in, when nobody asked you to? I have experienced both. Sometimes we speak without thinking how it may affect others, not realizing that our words have power. We have to be mindful about what we say to each other.

Here is a telling short story, emphasizing just how powerful our words can be. Be careful what you say to people, it can make or break them.

The group of frogs

As a group of frogs were traveling through the woods, two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs crowded around the pit and saw how deep it was, they told the frogs that there was no hope left for them.

However, the two frogs, decided to ignore what the others were saying and they proceeded to try and jump out of the pit.

Despite their efforts, the group of frogs at the top of the pit, were still saying they should give up . That they would never make it out.

Eventually, one of the frogs took heed to what the others were saying and gave up, falling down to his death. The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die.

He jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, ” did you not hear us?”

The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

Laziness won’t get you anywhere

let me just take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support. If you are new and reading my blog for the first time thank you as well. For those of you who read my posts all the time I cannot thank you enough for always reading, commenting and sharing. As I said before I love short stories and I love reading anything with a lesson. Today I want to share another gem with you, it’s about laziness and other hidden messages.

🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼

In ancient times, a king had his men place a boulder on a roadway. He then hid in the bushes, and watched to see if anyone would move the boulder out of the way. Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers passed by and simply walked around it.

Many people blamed the King for not keeping the roads clear, but none of them did anything about getting the stone removed.

One day, a peasant came along carrying vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to push the stone out of the way. After much pushing and straining, he finally managed.

After the peasant went back to pick up his vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and note from the King explain that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the road.”

We don’t know what awaits us on the other side, we really just have to try. We experience failure only when we try. Without making the effort you may never know what reward awaits you. Don’t be lazy, you have to at least try.

Quick morning inspiration

🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼

I love short stories, ( Hey they are short and they get straight to the point) I can read them when I’m pressed for time and I can get the whole moral of the story without having to wait a long time. I want to share with you a little gem I came across recently, let’s wake up the mind a little.

The Elephant Rope 

A gentleman was walking through an elephant camp and he spotted that the elephants weren’t being kept in cages or held by the use of chains. All that was holding them back from escaping the camp, was a small piece of rope tied to one of their legs.

As the man gazed, upon the elephant, he was completely confused as to why the elephants didn’t just use their strength to break the rope and escape. They could easily have done so, but instead they didn’t try at all.

Curious and wanting to know the answer, he asked the trainer nearby why the elephants were just standing there and never tried to escape.

The trainer replied: when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them, and at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.

The only reason why the elephants were not breaking free and escaping from the camp was that over time, they adopted the belief that it was impossible .

Moral

This is what happens when you think in a box, when you do not allow yourself to get outside of your comfort zone. Imagine how strong a elephant is, they could just simply lift their leg and escape. Picture yourself as the elephants, with all that strength and all that potential but because you limit yourself to just what you know or what you have conditioned yourself to know you end up missing out on all the possibilities. Always push yourself beyond the boundaries, don’t let feeble fears and excuses hold you down in one spot.

The ultimate breakdown of “live your best life”

It’s been a little while, l have been busy moving across the country. ( I am now a southern girl) but hey I am back and you have my full attention now.

So lately ( or not so lately) the saying ” live your best life” have be going around a lot. If you have any form of social media account, I’m sure you have seen or heard this phrase before. What exactly does it mean to ” live your best life”?

The quote itself came from the power house, Oprah Winfrey. To “live your best life” is to live up to your full potential, to seize every opportunity to gain success, to make a concerted effort to be happy. If you ask me, it’s one of those quotes that can be interpreted in a tremendous amount of ways. It’s basically whatever it means to you. Many of the hashtags seen on social media represents, freedom, success, individuality and the list goes on.

However you may interpret “live your best life ” it is always important that you appreciate the things that you have, that you take chances, take risks, step out there with confidence and be nothing but your awesome and authentic self and live for you. Whatever you do, ensure that it is done for you, not for others to see, or to compete, but for your own gratification. If your happiness or success is done for any other reason than to please you, then that’s not living your best life, it’s living someone-else’s best life.

So by now you should know that I love a good quote. If you ask me, the quote ” live your best live” is a little overused ( but who asked me, or who cares what I think) however it’s nonetheless a good one. ( yes there are,,,,,, well not bad quotes, but there are some that doesn’t make much sense or are not practical.) Remember what it says ” live your best life” emphasis on your.
