I love Think Good and it will be Good although I like it best in Yiddish: Traucht Gut Vet Zein Gut
I use the quote in my siggy. When ever I get to the point where I don't want to work out I ask myself if I'm doing what I want this moment or am I going to do what will help me get what I want the most! now some times I do what I need this moment to stay sane, but that's a different story ;) The quote has helped me make better food choices when I'm in the mood for ice cream and get me off my bum to work out :)
"The Reason Most People Fail Instead of Succeed is that they trade what they want the MOST for what they want at the MOMENT!!!"
I don't have one specific quote, but I collect quotes that I like and save them on my computer and frequently read through them.
I have done it once before. Years back I lost 80lbs, life hit and I didn't know how to deal with it and I gained it all back to the pound.
So I have my pictures of before and a note saying you did it before and you can do it again.
I have different quotes all over the place.
We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
I realize that it's very easy to fall into a negative frame of mind,especially when we are struggling.
I constantly remind myself:
"I CAN do it!!!"
Maybe it sounds corny but it does help.
"There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other." -- Douglas Everett
" Positive, Positive, Positive. Positive People Live Prosperous Lives! Keep Your Environment and Your Space Positive."
I liked this quote, it forces me to center myself and focus my energy on the next step of my weight loss. I placed this one onto my background of my computer which I see every day. Others I have placed on bathroom mirrors, inside kitchen cabinets, and on the back of the front door. They are changed when I find additional new ones; I have an archive of them in a file on my computer for future reference when I am in a rut or plateau.
I'm curious what quotes or affirmations do others find uplifting, motivational, and encouraging? Where do others place theirs so they can been seen to keep encouraged and motivated? Any suggestions on unique locations?
