Some more Life Quotes

Some of the three best quotes about life and personal growth and all of that...

Some people have such a lovely way with words - They put them together into life quotes and they make you think.

The Life quotes listed below are a few more of my favourites, I hope you find them uplifting and maybe even challenging!

Take a look at some of the other best quotes about life.

Life Quotes 1 - Oprah Winfrey

"Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness”

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey is a living legend. I know people feel differently about her but whatever you may think, you must agree that there is truth in the above statement. I have three lovely girls at home and each day I remind them that they are princesses and they must always act like a princess would. In the same vein, I remind myself that I am a Queen and I too must act in a way that shows it.

What does that mean? It means that nothing that appears as failure is permanent unless I choose to stop moving forward. It also means that getting things wrong does not take anything away from who I am as a person. It is my birthright to be a queen.

This applies to all of us women, we were born for greatness but at times we allow our voices to be shut down. We must always remember that it is a choice whether we remain silent and cowed or whether we fight through adversity or even walk away from any situation that does not edify us. We must choose to remember who we are.

Mistakes made are just part of the path to greatness. One mistake does not a life make! Remember this, in whatever situation you find yourself, in all aspects of your life. Do not be afraid to try because you may be mistaken! Give it a go, a blip is just a steppingstone to greatness. Decide what you want and Do not stop trying!

Life Quotes 2 - Helen Keller

“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”
Helen Keller

As a mum, I know I feel so overwhelmed at times by all the things I want to get going with. In the past, i have allowed this to casue me to procrastinate and hope that everything will get done without me. Needless to say, this never happens and if anything the next time I open my eyes, I am even more overwhelmed!

Now, instead of closing my eyes and refusing to see what needs to be done, I spend a little time making a list each day and prioritising. Just doing ONE thing even, makes a big difference to my mood and to the list of things to be done. It is just like doing a marathon, if we think of it all at once, we are overwhelmed but just keep putting one foot in front of the other and finally the finish line comes into view.

I am massively inspired by Helen Keller. She was severely challenged with deafness and blindness. Yet, despite this she knew the truth that we are mostly limited by our take on life, our attitude to the things we have to do.

So come on, think about it! Instead of avoiding the things you must do, just take one little thing, put on a timer for 15 mins or so, depending on what it is and just get to it. One little thing can in the long term make a world of difference.

This leads me to another quote I quite like.

Life Quotes 3 - Anthony Robbins

“Once you have mastered time, you will understand how true it is that most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year — and underestimate what they can achieve in a decade!” – Anthony Robbins

This is so very true. Are you finding it hard to carry on with a plan because the results do not seem to be worth your time, at least in the short term? I am so been here and still struggle with it everyday. The thing is, I know that quitting just keeps me in the same place or even worse, more fed up than I was the last time I tried and quit.

I do understand that starting a new habit, a new business, a new anything can be quite tedious to start with and the results seemingly non-existent but just imagine where you could be if you just keep keeping on. A little at a time adds up to a whole lot. You also avoid the regret and shame of looking back and wondering how different things could be.

Spending time working on one habit could make you a completely different person with a different outlook on life in a year.

Come on, let us step out in courage.
