21 Picture Quotes That Encourage You To Live A Fuller Life

21 Picture Quotes That Encourage You To Live A Fuller Life

Live and not merely exist… that’s what this post is all about. Whether you’re 21 or 61 it’s never too late to begin to live, and the same basic rules apply to everyone. As Jack London says, “The proper function of man is to live – not to exist.” This is echoed by Benjamin E. Mays who said, “I believe everyone is born into the world to do something unique and something distinctive.”

Do you know what your purpose is? Are you living by accident or by design? Take a minute or two and think about that.

Follow your effort and it will lead you to your passion and your purpose. Believe in, and think highly of yourself. Be positive and confident; appreciate who you are. Participate in your life instead of just watching it pass you by.

Dream BIG; your thoughts initiate your actions. “Every second that you spend doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have forever, so don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of your moments away. – C. JoyBell C.

Change your thinking; conquer your fears… transform your whole world. Strive for victory and prepare to win. “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” – Henry David Thoreau

And to entice you further to do just that, here are 21 picture quotes to encourage you to live a fuller life. Don’t just read them, take action. Live your life to the fullest!

                                            What Makes People Happy? 20 Secrets of “Always Happy” People

                                            Some people just seem to float through life with a relentless sense of happiness – through the toughest of times, they’re unfazed and aloof, stopping to smell the roses and drinking out of a glass half full.

                                            They may not have much to be happy about, but the simplicity behind that fact itself may make them happy.

                                            It’s all a matter of perspective, conscious effort and self-awareness. Listed below are a number of reasons why some people are always happy.

                                            1. They Manage Their Expectations

                                            They’re not crushed when they don’t get what they want – or misled into expecting to get the most out of every situation. They approach every situation pragmatically, hoping for the best but being prepared for the worst.

                                            2. They Don’t Set Unrealistic Standards

                                            Similar to the last point, they don’t live their lives in a constant pursuit towards impossible visions of perfection, only to always find themselves falling short of what they want.

                                            3. They Don’t Take Anything for Granted

                                            Happiness rests with feeling fulfilled – those who fail to stop and appreciate what they have every now and again will never experience true fulfillment.

                                            4. They’re Not Materialistic

                                            There are arguing viewpoints on whether or not money can really buy happiness; if it can, then we know from experience that we can never be satisfied because there will always be something newer or better that we want. Who has ever had enough money?

                                            5. They Don’t Dwell

                                            They don’t sweat the small things or waste time worrying about things that don’t really matter at the end of the day. They don’t let negative thoughts latch onto them and drain them or distract them. Life’s too short to worry.

                                            6. They Care About Themselves First

                                            They’re independent, care for themselves and understand that they must put their needs first in order to accommodate the needs of others.

                                            They indulge, aim to get what they want, make time for themselves and are extremely self-reliant.

                                            7. They Enjoy the Little Things

                                            They stop to smell the roses. They’re accustomed to find serenity when it’s available, to welcome entertainment or a stimulating discussion with a stranger when it crosses their path. They don’t overlook the small things in life that can be just as important.

                                            8. They Can Adapt

                                            They’re not afraid of change and they work to make the most out of new circumstances, good or bad. They thrive under pressure, are not overwhelmed easily and always embrace a change of pace.

                                            9. They Experiment

                                            They try new things, experience new flavors and never shy away from something they have yet to experience. They never order twice from the same menu.

                                            10. They Take Their Time

                                            They don’t unnecessarily rush through life. They work on their own schedule to the extent that they can and maneuver through life at their own relaxing pace.

                                            11. They Employ Different Perspectives

                                            They’re not stuck in one perspective; a loss can result in a new opportunity, hitting rock bottom can mean that there’s no where to go but up.

                                            12. They Seek to Learn

                                            Their constant pursuit of knowledge keeps them inspired and interested in life. They cherish information and are on a life-long quest to learn as much as they can.

                                            13. They Always Have a Plan

                                            They don’t find themselves drifting without purpose. When something doesn’t go as planned, they have a plan for every letter in the alphabet to fall back on.

                                            14. They Give Respect to Get It

                                            They are respectful and, in turn, are seen as respectable; the respect they exude earns them the respect they deserve.

                                            15. They Consider Every Opportunity

                                            They always have their eyes open for a new road, a new avenue worth exploring. They know how to recognize opportune moments and pounce on them to make the most of every situation. Success is inevitable for them.

                                            16. They Always Seek to Improve

                                            Perpetual self-improvement is the key towards their ongoing thirst for success. Whatever it is they do, they take pride in getting better and better, from social interactions to mundane tasks. Their pursuit at being the best eventually materializes.

                                            17. They Don’t Take Life Too Seriously

                                            They’re not ones to get offended easily over-analyze or complicate matters. They laugh at their own faults and misfortunes.

                                            18. They Live in the Moment

                                            They don’t live for tomorrow or dwell on what may have happened yesterday. Every day is a new opportunity, a new chapter. They live in the now, and in doing so, get the most out of every moment.

                                            19. They Say Yes

                                            Much more often than they say no. They don’t have to be badgered to go out, don’t shy away from new opportunities or anything that may seem inconvenient.

                                            20. They’re Self-Aware

                                            Most important, they’re wholly aware of themselves. They self-reflect and are conscious of their states of mind. If somethings bothering them, they fix it.

                                            We’re all susceptible to feeling down every now and again, but we are all equipped with the necessary solutions that just have to be discovered.

                                            Lack of confidence, inability to feel fulfilled, and susceptibility to stress are all matters that can be controlled through the way we handle our lives and perceive our circumstances.

                                            Final Thoughts

                                            The main philosophy employed by the happiest includes the idea that life’s simply too short: life’s too short to let things get you down, to take things for granted, to pursue absolute and unrealistic perfection.

                                            For some, employing these characteristics is a second nature – they do it without knowing. For others, a conscious effort must be put forth every now and again. Self-Awareness is key.
