The 10 Best Quote Life Lessons for 2022
It's the start of the year and we are all feeling hopeful for one that will knock it out of the park. But what can you learn that will give you self-confidence, motivation and a positive frame of mind for success? Here are 10 of the best quotes from some the wisest in the business of life:
1. The more you lie to yourself by not being authentic, the less confidence you will have
Pretending you are something you aren't is destructive. Stand proud, being you, with all the gifts and strengths you bring to this world. Authenticity = Confidence
2. I am the creator of my life not the manager of my circumstances
Feel like you get swept away each day? You don’t have to – it’s all about controlling your perspective. Define your goals = anchors. Put out your intention = your map. Be deliberate in what you create = action and you will create MAGIC
3. Just because you can do everything, doesn’t mean you should
Denise Duffield Thomas
How much value do you put on your time? How much cognitive energy do you use on all of those things you feel you 'should' do, but actually could easily outsource. They are the ones that make you feel guilty, a failure, like you never get things done. It’s time to let go! Use Task Rabbit, Upwork, Fiverr - whichever the platform, you can help other people as well as you and your family by outsourcing. And that will free up your time to train / start your side hustle / get that promotion / spend quality time with your family.
Do it today and get more value from your time. Guilt free!
4. You never regret exercise
Sometimes finding motivation can be hard. But remember this one any time you are struggling with your next gym visit. You honestly never finish exercising and think – urgh – why did I do that? Instead, you’re brimming with endorphins and feeling like you’ve taken on the world.
5. Diluted focus = Diluted Results
Stop getting distracted. There are SO many things we can do nowadays, but what is the most meaningful for us and will have a longer-term impact, vs. splitting our days into time confetti which ends up being frittered away.
Qualify your actions with this: What positive impact will this have on my life in the future?
6. Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day whispering ‘I’ll try again tomorrow’.
Mary Ann Radmacher
We give ourselves such a hard time - we are our own worst critics. Close your eyes. Put your hand on your heart and take a deep breath. Say ‘I’m proud of myself for doing my best.’
7. Your brain at positive is 31% more productive than at negative, neutral or stressed
It’s worth the positive investment in your mind... so treat yourself to some laughter in that meeting, 5 mins meditation, a walk with a friend or meal with family.
You will see the benefits through better performance and more creativity.
8. Identify your radiators in your life and prioritise time with them.
Brain Powered Coaching
Some people give you energy, others take it. Find people who make you better and prioritise them in your life - you will feel the difference.
9. I can accept failure. Everyone fails at something.
But I cannot accept not trying
Embrace failure - it shows you are pushing yourself. The more you take the steps, push the boundaries & celebrate, the more your brain will want to do more.
How many times have you failed this week? None? Keep trying!
10. Be grateful for what you have; you’ll end up having more.
If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you’ll never, ever have enough
The power of gratitude in our lives has been proven in countless studies – just 5 mins a day can make a real difference in how you view the world.
