Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - Consult not your fears, but your hopes and dreams.  Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential.  Concern yourself not with what you have tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.

SparkPeople's Comments

How many times has somebody told you to “think positively”? Easier said than done, right? But this truly can make a difference in your life. Focus on the good, and learn from the bad. You have the freedom and ability to choose your own attitude. What will you choose? Enthusiasm can carry you through a lot more than you think. Never just be satisfied with what you have, but keep working to achieve more. Set specific goals and work for them. After you have accomplished them, set new ones. Keep working to make yourself a better person.

Have a son named after Pope John
Thinking good thoughts is so much better than dwelling on what could have been
The choices are always ours
One day at a time

Living in fear is a miserable life. To choose hope and to work towards our potential is reason to be enthusiastic and optimistic. I want to become a better person----

This is so true, we have the free will to choose as we want to and if it is a bad choice we learn the hard way, if a good choice we are at peace. It is necessary for us to ALWAYS be positive in our outlook on life, otherwise we fall to failure or despair.

Thinking positive is the only way to go as negative thinking just makes you miserable.

Absolutely what I needed today - -more reinforcement of what my SP friends have told me recently. All I can say now is, "Amen."

We humans have a tremendous ability to change our mindsets, our circumstances and our lives, but must focus on the positive, our potential, and the possibilities for our future and we must begin to take the steps to make it happen. We did not get the way we are on one night and we cannto change it all inone night, but we can begin right now and succeed in making ourselves the very best that we can be!

Just what I needed to hear today! So many times we concentrate on our failures and fears instead we need to look up and dream big!
