Happy and Positive Thinking Quotes for hubbers and online writers

Updated on October 6, 2010

Positive thinking changes your day

 Having been a writer here for over a year has been a tough quest and some days to stay positve and motivated. I know there are some hubbers here who find it difficult to maintain focus on a daily basis.

Being a writer is a wonderful position to be in. You can set your own hours and choose your own topics. But how do you maintain that poitive outlook on a daily basis. When you check stats on your progress and find that the mountain is being a little steep at times, I know its tough to stay motivated and keep on writing.

I had a problem recently where writers block became an issue as I sat back after reading some new information on backlinking strategies and thought how long it would take to go back through and find every single script of writing I had done online in order to put it into some sort of order.See Sunforgeds' link wheel strategy if you're interested.

My wife thought it very strange that I was doing all this reading and printing and not much writing. All she said was go and think positive and I remembered some quotes that got me through my early sales days.

So knowing how some hubbers and online writers find it difficult to stay focused on the goal, insert goal here .............100 score on more than 25% of my articles........... go ahead and find the biggest font you can and print one quote every day and hang it over your computer to stay focused.

Pick a happy and positive quote and print it in a huge font

      whirl in dance with great hope: tarry, rest; for you waited carefully and patiently.

      You waited being sorely, pained; wounded and sorrowful. You tremble and fall grieviously as you are being shapened.

      Yet you look: you stay: you are as a woman in trevail: waiting and bearing much pain and fear.

      You tarry: you tremble as hope is brought forth. All grief has been diminished.

      So, whirl in dance with great hope. Tarry, rest: for you have waited carefully and patiently.

      @Sage Williams

      Thanks Sage. It can be a struggle sometimes for hubbers to keep going.Being positive at the start fo the day can turn an otherwise average day into something really productive online. It does take about 3 -4 weeks to see the movement in hubs, but after 4 weeks of positive effort writing, thats 4 weeks of readers constant.
