10 Inspirational Quotes to Help You Live Your Best life in 2022
Don’t Lose The Momentum
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” - ALBERT EINSTEIN
Oh albert, this is so accurate. I remember as a child learning to ride my bike. The moment fear set in, I lost momentum and fell off. Similarly, as soon a fear kicks in we tense up, lose momentum, and fall off our path to our goals. So keep pushing forward to retain your balance in life.
Cling To Hope
“Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope.” - MARTIN LUTHER KING
Martin Luther King had many mountains stacked against him. However, he found small stones of hope to pave a way for us to continue his legacy. He reminds us that in life although we have large obstacles to face, we can still find small stones of hope to pave the road to the life and reality we want.
Be Uniquely You
“If you’re always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be.” - MAYA ANGELOU
Yes! Ms. Angelou! I learned over the years that my quirks aren’t supposed to be concealed or hidden, but they are supposed to be shared with the world. There is only one you and we want to see it. Brilliant creativity is often buried because of the creator’s fear to share. We need you and your gifts out in the open!
It’s Not About The Past
“I’m a hustler baby. I just want you to know. It ain’t where I’ve been, but where I’m about to go.” - PHARRELL WILLIAMS & JAY Z
The wonderful Lisa Nichols often credits this song during her interviews. She’s right! It’s an absolutely amazing arrangement of lyrics. I may have been a lazy, unmotivated individual before, but it ain’t where I’ve been, but where I’m about to go. We don’t need to live in where we are, that space only exists in our heads. The moment is now and the future is eminent.
Don’t Be A Pain
“I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.” - MAYA ANGELOU
Maya Angelou was just such a wise soul. She realized that, although life is painful and tough, she didn’t have to reflect those emotions. We may hurt on the inside, but we don’t have to make others hurt as well just because we are. Eventually, that girl named, Karma, will reach around, and hopefully our pain will be healed.
“Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye.” - HELEN KELLER
Although Helen Keller lost her sight at just 19 months, she did look the world straight in the eye and used her amazing talents to advocate for human rights, disability rights, so much more. We have to be proud of who we are. We can’t be afraid to look the world in the eye and say, “Hey world, this is me and most importantly, this is what I have to offer.”
Remember to Live In The Moment
“I work very hard and I play very hard. I’m grateful for life. And I live it – I believe life loves the liver of it. I live it.” - MAYA ANGELOU
What can I say, she is just an amazing woman, so here is another quote from Ms. Angelou. This quote is even more relevant today as we find ourselves victim to social media addiction. We have to stop the scroll and start really living. I do believe that life will reward the person with beautiful experiences just from attempting to actually live it.
Life Is Short
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.” - STEVE JOBS
My birthday twin! However, I’m so sorry Steve, I own an Android 🙂 Despite my phone preference, I absolutely love this quote. We often get trapped in other people’s perceptions of reality and end up essentially living their lives. Beat your own drum and live in the rhythm that suits you. You have one shot on this earth (unless we’re reincarnated?) so use this time and space the way you envision it.
Use THe Tools God Gave You
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” - DR. SEUSS
Awww, Dr. Seuss just kept it real simple. However, that simplicity often evades us. We often believe we don’t have a choice in the matter of our lives, but we absolutely do.
What Will Be In The Next Chapter?
“Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.” - BRAD PAISLEY
What do you want the story of your life to be? I think it’s important for everyone to really take the time to outline the story of their lives and then execute. The story may not come out exactly how you planned, but you’ll hit the main plots. Whether you plan or not, eventually you’ll fill in all the chapters. What kind of story will it be?
