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!

                                            10 Simple Ways To Always Think Positive Thoughts

                                            Positive thinking can lead to a lot of positive change in your life. Developing an optimistic outlook can be good for both your physical and mental health.

                                            But sometimes, certain situations arise in life that makes it hard to keep a positive outlook. Take steps to make positive thinking become more like your second nature and you’ll reap the biggest benefits.

                                            Here are 10 ways to make thinking positive thoughts easy:

                                            1. Spend Time with Positive People

                                            If you surround yourself with constant complainers, their negativity is likely to rub off on you.

                                            Spend time with positive friends and family members to increase the likelihood that their positive thinking habits will become yours too. It’s hard to be negative when everyone around you is so positive.

                                            2. Take Responsibility for Your Behavior

                                            When you encounter problems and difficulties in life, don’t play the role of the victim. Acknowledge your role in the situation and take responsibility for your behavior.

                                            Accepting responsibility can help you learn from mistakes and prevent you from blaming others unfairly.

                                            3. Contribute to the Community

                                            One of the best ways to feel good about what you have, is to focus on what you have to give.

                                            Volunteer in some manner and give back to the community. Helping others can give you a new outlook on the world and can assist you with positive thinking.

                                            4. Read Positive and Inspirational Materials

                                            Spend time each day reading something that encourages positive thinking. Read the Bible, spiritual material, or inspirational quotes to help you focus on what’s important to you in life. It can be a great way to start and end your day.

                                            5. Recognize and Replace Negative Thoughts

                                            You won’t be successful at positive thinking if you’re still plagued by frequent negative thoughts. Learn to recognize and replace thoughts that are overly negative. Often, thoughts that include words like “always” and “never” signal that they aren’t true.

                                            If you find yourself thinking something such as, “I always mess everything up,” replace it with something more realistic such as, “Sometimes I make mistakes but I learn from them.”

                                            There’s no need to make your thoughts unrealistically positive, but instead, make them more realistic.

                                            6. Establish and Work Toward Goals

                                            It’s easier to be positive about problems and setbacks when you have goals that you’re working toward. Goals will give you motivation to overcome those obstacles when you encounter problems along the way. Without clear goals, it’s harder to make decisions and gauge your progress.

                                            7. Consider the Consequences of Negativity

                                            Spend some time thinking about the consequences of negative thinking. Often, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

                                            For example, a person who thinks, “I probably won’t get this job interview,” may put less effort into the interview. As a result, he may decrease his chances of getting the job.

                                            Create a list of all the ways negative thinking impacts your life. It likely influences your behavior, your relationships, and your feelings. Then, create a list of the ways in which positive thinking could be beneficial.

                                            8. Offer Compliments to Others

                                            Look for reasons to compliment others. Be genuine in your praise and compliments, but offer it frequently. This will help you look for the good in other people.

                                            9. Create a Daily Gratitude List

                                            If you start keeping a daily gratitude list, you’ll start noticing exactly how much you have to be thankful for. This can help you focus on the positive in your life instead of thinking about all the bad things that have happened in the day.

                                            Getting in the habit of showing an attitude of gratitude makes positive thinking more of a habit. Here’re 40 Simple Ways To Practice Gratitude.

                                            10. Practice Self-Care

                                            Take good care of yourself and you’ll be more equipped to think positively.

                                            Get plenty of rest and exercise and practice managing your stress well. Taking care of your physical and mental health will provide you with more energy to focus on positive thinking.
