-As long as you're alive it's not too late to become the person you really want to be and know in your heart you deserve to be. No matter how bad you might have screwed things up in the past, no matter how far off course you've gotten from what you really want to do, you can ALWAYS turn it around.

-Life has no remote. Get up and change it yourself!

-It's not about what you start in life, it's about what you finish.

-Be Strong: You never know who you are inspiring.

-Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

-It hurts now but one day it'll be your warm up! :wink:

-Being defeated is often a temporary condition, giving up is what makes it permanent. Never give up!

Surround yourself with people who:
*Challenge You
*Push You
*Motivate You
and do the same for them in return.

-Every time you eat is an opportunity to nourish your body not hurt it.

-MOTIVATION is what gets you started. HABIT is what keeps you going.

-Don't wait, the time will never be "just right".

-You confidence should come from the approval, love and acceptance of yourself, NOT of others.

-The difference between try and triumph is a little UMPH! :smile:

-I'm not changing, I'm becoming more myself.

-Just because you don't see results after a day or week or even longer: Don't Give Up. You may not see the changes but every smart choice you make is affecting you in ways you'd never imagine.

-Don't wish for it, WORK for it.

-Let your past make you better not bitter.

-Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

-Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward :smiley:

-Talking with quiet confidence will always beat screaming with obvious insecurity.

-Everything is hard before it is easy.

-Your beliefs don't make you a better person, your behaviour does.

-The pain you feel today will be the strength you feel tomorrow.

-The best way to predict the future is to create it!

-Don't just be another member of society, be a living example of your dreams and goals.

-Everything you have ever wanted is just on the other side of fear.

-There are no shortcuts to any place worth going

-Nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it aint how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.

-Life is hard. It's supposed to be! If we didn't suffer we would never learn.

-Challenges are what make life interesting. Overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.

-The time is always right to do what is right!

-If you focus on the problem, you can't see the solution. never focus on the problem!

-Our reaction to a situation literally has the power to change the situation itself.

-Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.

-You will have bad times but try and be thankful for them because they will wake you up to the stuff you weren't paying attention to.

-Don't be disappointed if people refuse to help you, instead say to yourself: I am thankful to all those who said NO, because of them I did it myself. :smile:

-Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.

-STOP overthinking, you're only creating problems that aren't there.

-A negative mind will never give you a positive life.

-The way people treat you is a statement about who they are as a human being. It's not a statement about you.

-If the plan doesn't work, change the plan but never the goal!

-Never give up a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.

These links below definitely helped re-wire my brain. I'm linking to them as don't think I could do justice trying to simplify them into quotes!


Hopefully some or even one of the above quotes will help someone out there :smile:

Feel free to add some more!

    That's a very good one and very important one! Thanks for putting it up.

    I am a full believer (finally) of putting yourself first especially when you are trying to improve your health and/or mental wellbeing. If a lot more people did it then there would be a lot more healthy, happy folks in the world.

    On that nerdfitness website he talks about putting fitness first just for one month and that may be a simple 15 or 30 minute walk every day or a full work out routine 3 times a week. But basically he advises you to tell friends and family that you will be putting this first for the next month. The majority should respect it, be happy to support you and be understanding if you can't meet up as those are the times you are working out/doing whatever it is to help improve yourself. If anyone is put out that you can't go for that usual coffee and cake on a Wednesday, or you won't be out drinking alcohol with them for a few weeks- well feic them! It's only for one month to try it out so just give it a go whatever it is especially if it will help you.

    “The body you see in the mirror
    is merely a reflection of
    your body of thought;
    change the shape of your thinking
    and you’ll change the shape
    of your being!”
