JANUARY - Achievement Motivation and Daily Quotes

A Positive Attitude Will Give You Power

Daily motivation article and inspirational Quotes for January:

Do you consider yourself to be someone with a positive attitude, or a negative attitude?

Do you consistently see what is wrong in the world, or what is right?

Think about how you feel and how you approach other people to help you answer this question. How do you think others would describe you?

Your attitude, whether positive or negative, has an affect on you even if you don't think it does. It affects the way you see yourself.

If you have a negative attitude it can affect the way you look, and even the way you feel physically. You may feel tired and unable to motivate yourself. You may not be as healthy as you could be.

Other people can also be affected by your negative attitude. Nobody wants to spend time with someone who is always negative. It makes them feel frustrated and can affect their mood.

If you have a positive attitude, you will see yourself in a very different way. You will feel motivated and happy, and better able to cope with stress. You will have higher self-esteem.

You will also be able to accomplish more with a positive attitude because you are able to feel excitement about what you are doing.

Being grateful for the people and things in your life can help you to keep a positive attitude.

Your positive attitude will also have a good influence on those around you. People will want to spend time with you because you make them feel happy and lifted up.

The way you treat them can help them to feel good about themselves and make them feel more motivated to achieve.

If you find yourself thinking negative thoughts, find something that will help you to feel more positive.

Spend time with people you enjoy being with, see a funny movie, or do something else you love doing.

Don't let negative thoughts linger, they will only drag you down.

Like the song by Johnny Mercer says, 'You've got to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative.'

"It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently." - Warren Buffett


“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world.

There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Marianne Williamson

thought and deed." - Eileen Caddy

Unsuccessful people are always asking, 'What's in it for me?'" - Brian Tracy
