10 Sentences That Will Make You Smile

10 Sentences That Will Make You Smile

Once in a while, you will need to encounter sentences that make you smile as you will need more inspiration and motivation to go on with your life. Which sentences do you think will make you smile the most?

Here are ten of them:

1. Yes, today, everything is going to be great!

Your thoughts can heavily influence your actions and also your mood for the day. Choose to read sentences that make you smile. Be grateful for another day that you’re alive. Choose to spend your life with optimistic thoughts and refreshing beliefs, and get rid of any thought that says otherwise. Indeed, every day can be a great day if you want it to be.

2. You are here in this world to make a positive difference.

You were given a gift—a talent or a skill—that you can use to help empower yourself and eventually empower others. Make the most out of it by touching lives and influencing people to change for the better.

3. You have the power to spend your life with people who truly matter to you.

You don’t have to spend the rest of your life with people who don’t treasure you! Yes, you can quit your job if you’re working in a toxic environment. Yes, you can close your business if your business partner is a cheater. Yes, you can get out of your romantic relationship if your lover doesn’t accept you for who you are. You have the power to do so, remember?

4. It doesn’t matter how many times you fail; what matters is how many times you stand up and try again.

Don’t be discouraged by your failures! Learn from the successful people and use failures as life’s way of teaching us valuable lessons. Want to know a secret? Successful people fail a lot more than unsuccessful ones.

5. The best is yet to come.

Your potential can be limitless. Don’t settle for mediocrity: you’re definitely better than this. The potential to improve your life, the chance to lose weight or the opportunity to be a millionaire—all these exist. You just have to look for them.

6. Life is too precious to waste time hating anyone.

Hating someone is like drinking poison, don’t you think? You’re filling yourself up with something that stresses you and makes you upset while you’re still waiting for that person to suffer. Don’t drink poison.

7. Get busy living, or get busy dying.

Living means that you wake up each day excited and passionate about the things that you’re about to do. You love your work and you get paid to do it. You love the people you’re with, and you love the life that you have. You can only start living if you stop being a mindless zombie and stop getting stuck in the same routine every day. You’re supposed to take control of your life, not to just simply watch it pass you by.

8. Indulging in chocolate every once in a while is always a good idea.

Whenever life decides to bring you down or you feel like giving up because nothing seems to be going you way, make yourself a hot cup of cocoa and rest for a while. Tomorrow’s another day. You always have another chance to make things right again.

9. Time heals almost everything, so give time some time to work.

Past arguments, physical wounds, broken hearts, personal differences—all of these can be healed in time. Don’t be in such a rush, and don’t force things to heal immediately. You just need to wait for the right time for all the pain to be forgotten and for all the scars to fade away.

10. You can get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful in your life.

Yes, go ahead and live your life on your terms. Spend time with things that empower you and don’t waste time with the things that don’t.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
