Do you want today to be better than yesterday? Would you like every day after today to be awesome? If so, then following are some of the best quotes ever to make that happen. These quotes will inspire and motivate you, and they will help you feel better about your day, no matter what comes your way.
1. Have A Zest For Life Today
Walt Disney quotes have a way of making you feel young and alive. This is one of the best quotes ever to replicate a little of how he spent his days into your day.
When you can find the fun, humor, enjoyment, and satisfaction in today, your day will always feel much better than when you focus on the lack of those things. It doesn’t matter what your day is like, you can have a passion for simply being able to experience it and be alive, and that is the ultimate way to have a perfectly wonderful day.
2. Don’t Let Defeat Get You Down
Battles are meant to be lost, but the true value in a battle is trying. Some people give up on themselves, their dreams, their health, their relationships, and their happiness before they have really tried, and that is a horrible state to live in. If you try something tomorrow and experience defeat, then pat yourself on the back for giving it a go, and let yourself rest with the peace of mind that at least you tried.
3. Here’s One Of The Best Quotes Ever For A Great Day
When I read this quote, I pictured a kid. A kid does this naturally, and they enjoy their day immensely because of it. You don’t need to be naive to do this; you just need a little bit of wonder inside of you. Be mindful of what is happening, without judgment. Listen, watch, hear, and use your other senses to really pay attention to what is happening. Be amazed at how things work out or don’t work out or come into your life. And then talk about it to someone you care about so you can reverberate that moment in your mind. This little practice will help you have much more joy in your day!
4. Your Perspective For Today?
I know some people don’t like others who seem to be blindly optimistic, but the truth is those people experience a lot of joy in their day. They see the good in others and in bad situations. And no matter what happens to them, they can see how it will benefit their life. Then, they can take that information and use it in their life for their happiness and well-being.
So, for today, see every situation as something that is rigged in your favor. Act as if it’s working for you, not against you. And then notice the impact that has on your day and even our future.
5. Be Yourself
This is one of the best quotes ever for making the most out of your day. It’s a reminder that everyone else is already doing themselves pretty well, so you don’t need to behave like them. You need to focus on yourself, because when you do that, you are going to be worth much more to this world. You are going to contribute with your unique abilities, see things from your unique perspective, and add value to the world around you that no one else can. You can like other people and learn from them, but you can never become them, nor should you want to.
6. Life Hack 101
You may be presented with some scary choices today that could change your life. And, to be honest, the scariest choices are often choices that can change your life. The easy stuff doesn’t do much. It doesn’t improve your character, increase your success, or improve your relationships. The hard stuff – the stuff that comes with risks – is the stuff that could have the most impact on your life.
So, when you feel that fear, be fearless. Stand up tall, hold your head up high, and push through your fear so you can see what happens.
7. Stand By Your Values
I think we can all agree that Malcolm X has some of the best quotes ever, but this one is important for your daily life. If you give in and do something that is outside of your ethics, then you are allowing yourself to be manipulated by other people’s wishes and desires.
It’s important to get clear on what you stand for: honesty, equality, dependability, individuality, respect, and compassion are just a few of the things you might stand for. When you know what matters most to you, you won’t fall for anything that does not align with your values, and you will feel good about yourself at the end of the day.
8. Step Outside Your Comfort Zone
You may come across opportunities that will get you closer to where you want to be. If you choose to be a coward and hide in your comfort zone, then you will never know what could have been.
This quote by Julius Caesar is one of the best quotes ever to keep you motivated to say YES and go for it. It will help you live life to its fullest every moment. When you are strong, you will never stop living the life you want simply because you are too scared to step out of that comfort zone that protects you.
9. Strive To Understand Others
This is one of the best quotes ever for creating a more peaceful world, but it can be scaled down to your life and your day. If you don’t want to have a ton of conflict in your day, then understanding is the way to avoid it.
For example, instead of flipping someone off who cuts in front of you, recognize that they may be trying to get to their dying mother’s bedside. Or, if you have a disagreement with someone at work, try to see that they are looking at things differently than you because they are not you, and then strive to understand where they are coming from. Doing this will have a huge impact on your day’s happiness level.
10. Focus On Love
When you love everyone that you come across, your life changes. You become more present and witness more things and learn more things and life becomes more interesting.
The trick is to look at others – really look at them, and feel love towards them. Pretend they are your brother, sister, best friend, mother, father, son, daughter, or whoever you love. See them through the eyes of someone who cares about them, and you will affect them and yourself positively in many different ways.
11. Be Patient
Things are not always going to go your way, and even though it would be nice, things are not always easy. I know sometimes I wake up and imagine myself easily doing a new task, with no problems and no stress, but then something doesn’t go right when I’m actually doing it, and I have to problem solve on how to do it a different way. And before I know it hours have gone by and I’m still trying to do that one thing that was supposed to be so easy. (This often happens when putting together Ikea furniture!)
It can happen at any point in your day. Problems arise, other people get in the way, things break down, unexpected things happen, and that’s life. Patience will make help you stay calm in the face of all those things and do what you need to do despite them.
12. Practice Gratitude
Gratitude has many benefits. One of them is a motivator to see things differently.
For instance, if you run into an ex, you can focus on hating them for what they did, or you can be grateful for the lessons they taught you while you were together. If you get a flat tire today, you can be pissed off about that, or you can be grateful that you have some time to sit and reflect on your life. Gratitude helps knock out all those needless and negative thoughts and give you clarity on what really matters in your life.
13. Stay Disciplined
You may be affirming some incredible things for today. Maybe you want to do more work than usual, get in a workout, make supper, enjoy time with friends, and learn something new. That sounds like a great day, but if you don’t have the discipline to do it, then it won’t happen.
Without discipline, you are deceiving yourself with what you are going to do today, and when your day ends completely different than you wanted, you will not feel good. Develop discipline and make your strongest affirmations come to life!
14. Learn From Nature
Take some time out of your day to learn from nature. Instead of shooing away the flying bug, watch what it is doing. Instead of cursing the wind, watch the trees sway with it. Instead of getting upset about the rain, watch the plants grow greener and more alive because of it. Let nature teach you how to make the most out of the day. Just a few minutes paying attention to nature can help you have a completely different outlook on your day.
15. Listen To Your Intuition
This is one of the best quotes ever for making the most of YOUR day. Your inner voice is always there guiding you towards the right decisions for you. If you listen to other people’s opinions, then you can easily make the right decisions for THEM.
Take what other people have to say into account, but don’t let their words rule your day. In the end, staying connected with yourself and your inner voice will help you manifest the day (and life) you really want.
16. Go With The Flow
You have a to-do list. You have things that need to be accomplished. But if you fight the things and people that come into your day unexpectedly then you are going to lack a connection to your spiritual side that makes you feel alive. It’s the side of you that finds more meaning in today than just the things that need to be accomplished. Feeling connected to something more means being flexible and able to go with the flow.
17. Don’t Get Stuck On Lack
As you go about your day, you will see people with cars you want, homes you want, relationships you want, and many other things that you want in your life. If you focus on what you don’t have – and how little you think you have, then you will not be happy today. True happiness comes from enjoying what you have, what you do, who you are, where you live, and what you experience, so make enjoyment of each moment something you focus on today instead of lack.
18. Just Keep Going
Don’t make today about success or failure. As Winston Churchill said in his quote, one success won’t cap off your life. There will always be more to reach for. And one failure won’t end your life. You can always try again. Make today about taking the next step towards your goals and adjusting your course as necessary.
19. Be Compassionate As Often As Possible Today
Compassion means looking outside of yourself and seeing things from other people’s points of view. This is something you want to do as often as possible, not occasionally. As the Dalai Lama said, compassion is one of the necessary things in life to keep humanity alive.
Compassion helps us connect, understand, accept, and grow stronger. Everyone you come across in your day, including yourself, deserves compassion. When you are able to be compassionate, your whole day will take on a happier and more peaceful tone.
20. Spend At Least 10 Minutes Being Mindful
Andy Puddicombe suggests that the present moment is a place to gain perspective and change the way we experience life. Being mindful is a tool that can be used when your day gets crazy, you’re faced with too much, your thoughts are turning negative, and you want to get back to a place of ‘center’ where you can do all those other things that help you have a successful and rewarding day. Ten minutes may not seem like a lot but, speaking from experience, it can help you gain a whole new perspective on your day.
