Powerful One Word Quotes and Affirmations That Can Change Your Life
One Word Inspiration
Words have power. One-word quotes are powerful and effective to motivate and inspire you. Just one word is enough to give you confidence and increase your self esteem. The one word can be a dynamic one that triggers your mind to work on the emotion and guide you in self-development.
These are inspirational single words, and as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe reminds us "Every spoken word arouses our self-will." Let us choose the words we utter with care.
In 2009, I did a series on my blog on Power Words—one-word quotes, using the alphabet. The series was well appreciated and I did a follow-up on affirmations for the words. I designed a motivational magnet and an affirmation to go with the word for easy motivation.

"'Now' is the operative word.
Everything you put in your way is just a method of putting off the hour when you could actually be doing your dream.
You don't need endless time and perfect conditions.
Do it now.
Do it today.
Do it for twenty minutes and watch your heart start beating."
~ Barbara Sher ~
