It is another Monday morning. Often times this is the most dreaded day of the week. It means starting another work week; dealing with bosses and deadlines. Here are a few inspirational quotes to help you through your week.
Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant - Robert Louis Stevenson. Often times it is hard to believe that your dreams will ever come true. Many of us have dreams to start businesses, change careers, or be entertainers. It may help if you see your dreams as a seed. Dreams are a seed that is planted in your heart and your mind. This week, water the seed with going after your dreams. Do something this week that will bring you closer to your goals. Each time you go after your dreams you are getting closer to reaping your harvest. At times there will be plowing, watering, and pruning. Allow negativity to be plucked and cut off from your life. In the end you will reap your harvest if you don’t give up.
We don’t see things the way they are. We see them the way WE are - Talmud. Perception is everything. The way we see life determines how we live it. If you are a fun loving person then you will perceive life as fun and worth living. On the contrary, if you are depressed or sad, everything about life will be sorrowful. Examine yourself this week. How do you really see yourself when no one is around? Now examine the way you see your life. How are you living your life? If you see your life in a negative way, begin to make some changes within yourself. If you do this your life will drastically improve.
If you’re going through hell, keep going – Winston Churchill. If you are going through a rough time in life, keep going. Pain in life makes us stronger, although we don’t like it. Life often puts demands on us that we are not always prepared to handle. It can teach us lessons that will stay with us for the rest of our lives. Self-inflicted death is never the answer. If you hit a rough patch this week, keep going in life, even if it feels like you are going through hell. Trials of life are just temporary. It will soon end.
Whatever you are facing or may face this week, remember there is a brighter side. Try not to live for the weekend. Live for every day. Work towards your goals, change your perception of yourself, and don’t give up even in the face of adversity.
