Motivational Quotes: Be miserable or motivate yourself

Motivational Quotes: Be miserable or motivate yourself

“Be miserable or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s your choice.” – Wayne Dyer

 

Life is all about the choices we make. Many a times, you may find yourself in situations wherein you need to make a decision. It is these decisive situations which will finally pave the path for the fate you live.

If you are living a miserable life, the reason is YOU. Similarly, if you have a great life and you love what you have made of yourself, you have every reason to grin. God has vested enough power in us to be the creator of our own Destiny. Each one of us are assigned the same 24 hours a day and yet there are people who lead the world and there are ones who endlessly fail. The only difference between them is the choices they make. No one is born with superpowers and the base of our genetic framework is same. All that truly separates an individual from another has to be the choices that govern their life.

I remember a period of time in my life when I was utterly depressed and even contemplated putting an end to the same. However, it was during one of those sessions with the therapists that I realized that life is a gift and I have chosen to waste it so far. I had never wished for such a story. That was the day when I decided I had a choice to make. I could either let this wonderful gift slip away or cherish every moment of it. In that split instant, I made a choice. I chose to live and today, I am proud of who I am. I may not be famous for the world but my heart knows I have been brave and that is all the motivation I need, to go on with my life.

Motivational Quotes: The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be

“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

A lot of people believe largely in stars, destiny and fate. Sure enough, there are things that are beyond our will, but does it mean that we should not even try and simply give up because we believe that what is destined to happen will eventually happen.

It is high time that we put in our best and work really hard to become who we are capable of being. Life is essentially a journey and it is upon you to make the most out of it. The decision as to whether you will choose happiness or sadness isn’t merely decided by what is written in your fate. The decision has to be made by you.

You can rule your stars and you are the creator of your own destiny. I remember vividly that I was once in disarray because there were too many diverging roads and I didn’t know which one would lead me to my goal. People told me that I should let fate decide, but it was in that instant of time that I finally realized that fate is nothing but a figment of my imagination.

In that instant, when I was baffled and confused as I had too many choices, I decided I wanted to be a writer because that is what my calling was. Despite having a degree in software engineering, I gave up the suffocating clutches of the corporate world and decided to walk the path less trodden. I must say that has made all the difference. If I had let it go and thought that fate will make me choose, I might still be stuck doing a job I didn’t love and thereby living a life that wasn’t mine.

I am glad I chose to be the person I wanted to be!

Inspirational Quotes: “It’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” Marilyn Monroe

Inspirational Quotes: It’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring

– Marilyn Monroe

 

Life is a really short journey and no one comes out of it alive. You do not really know as to what is going to happen tomorrow and this is why one must live life the way it comes. What is the point living a boring life because when it finally ends, you will have nothing eventful to recall.

It doesn’t matters if the stuff you do look ridiculous to others. What really matters is that you should live your life in a way that makes you happy being who you are. Life is an experience which we always recollect during the end.

I am 25 and even today when I recall some of the best events of my life; it always includes the fun times which I spent with my friends and my sister. Some of my happiest moments aren’t the ones spent sitting alone in front of my office desk and doing boring work; it is the ecstatic prank we played on our college junior and laughed our hearts out or the fun time when we crashed a wedding and even that one event when I made  fool of myself by singing out loud even though I am tone deaf.

Life is really fun when you learn to do happy things, no matter how ridiculous it seems!

Inspirational Quotes: Ever wondered my climbing takes longer than falling

 

Where are you are heading to?

Who are you? Seriously. What do you stand for? What is important for you in life? What kind of person do you want be? What kind of person are you right now? Do you know your values? Do you act according to what you value most? Theory says that the more one acts according to his value, the happier this person will be. But what exactly are values?

 

Values there are like lighthouses guiding the traveller at sea. They show us where we need to go to. But can we ever truly accomplish a value? Can we reach it? Think about it for a moment or two.

Maybe you are a parent and ‘being a good parent’ would seem like a plausible value to you. Is there ever going to be a point in your life when you are done being a good parent? When you have fulfilled all the requirements and passed all the tests so that you can do everything but being a good parent? Maybe you see yourself being an honest person. That would certainly qualify as a value as well. Is there, ever, going to be a time when you told the truth enough times; when you have accomplished being an honest person so that from here on out you no longer need to tell the truth?

 

When it comes to values there is no such point. Values are everlasting. They are important directions that we are moving in but we will never reach a point of destination. It is an ongoing pursuit that cannot end in success if success is understood in terms of reaching a goal; because a goal is something that has a clear ending. Unlike values, goals can be achieved. They always come with “expiry dates”. Ideally, and in order to live a happy and fulfilled life, our goals would need to be aligned to those values.

 

Therefore, the essence of living a happy life is a lifelong climb towards our values equipped with goals that bring us closer to our values instead of taking us further away.

Inspirational Quotes: I am ME and that is all I have to be

 

Humans come in all kinds of shapes, colors, and preferences. But no one, not a single person, on this earth filled with over 7 billion people is exactly like you. There might be people who share your interest, your passion, your body weight, or your color of hair. But even the utmost similarities will not add up for that person to be just like you. You are unique and everything you did, everything you do, and everything you will do is essentially yours.

All about you is entirely yours. You own your successes and your failures. You own your feelings may they be anger or love. You own your body and you alone decide what it is doing. You own your mind and all the thoughts, images and dreams it creates. All the lights and shadows inside you, you own them too. Embrace who you are for there will never be a person like you. Get to know all of what you own. Meet all the different sides of you. Chat with the nasty you, say hello to the kind you, and give a huge hug to the anxious you.

You own yourself, each and every little part of it, so go ahead and engineer yourself. Do you feel like laughing? Laugh! Do you feel like crying? Cry! Do you feel like loving? Love! And along the way, remember that all you are saying, thinking, or doing in a particular moment that is all you and you alone own it. Don’t make excuses and don’t wait on the approval of others! Stand up for all the facets of your being. Get to that inner strength and inner calmness. Listen to the voice inside that is telling you: You are you and you are okay! You are all you have to be today!
