“If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for pretty much anything.”
There are other variations of this quote, but the fact of the matter is this quote is one that hit home with me when I was exposed to it as a teenager. This quote made me think about how important having standards is. Having standards are essential for determining the quality of the life you intend to live.
Over the years I’ve created quite a few quotes that help me and others to create the standards necessary for a well lived life. Here are 3 empowering motivational quotes that will help you define your life standards and create the life you truly desire:
Quote #1 – “Never practice positive thinking without the positive action of application.”
Essentially this quote is saying that there are two parts to being positive and both of those parts must be active. If you’re only doing the first part, thinking positive, without enacting the second part, applying positive action, than you’re really just wasting your brain power. Set the standard of practicing positive thinking and applying positive action and you will succeed every single time.
Quote #2 – “Lessons are what’s behind you. LIFE is what’s in front of you. Learn, Grow & Thrive!”
To often we can get hung up on focusing on all of the negative things that have happened to us in the past. This can cause a person to become bitter. Bitterness weighs you down and prevents you from embracing the abundance that rules the Universe. This quote says to set the standard of looking at the past to discern and learn the lessons found there, then to go forward applying those lessons and live an abundant life.
Quote #3 – “Know, Like & Trust yourself 1st, then you will become an attractor magnet of those things and persons who will enhance your life.
In a nut shell, this quote says if you don’t know yourself, like yourself and trust yourself than it’s going to be next to impossible for you to attract anything that will enhance your life and help you to go to your next level. Set the standard for yourself that you will know, like and trust yourself before you seek to know, like and trust anyone else and you’ll be amazed as you trigger the gateway for the abundance of the Universe to visit you often.
