I grew up reading Guideposts, a magazine that Norman Vincent Peale founded to promote inspiring people who faced adversity with a positive attitude. With these stories of perserverance and giving credit to my parents as well, I have been trying to get through the past few months with a positive attitude. Here are some quotes I have run across that I have found extremely helpful. I haven't found who wrote these so apologies all around until I do! Hope you find these inspiring as well.
Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst...a spark that creates extraordinary results. -Wade Boggs, Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Speech, July 31, 2005
Your attitude, almost always determines your altitude in life. -Zig Ziglar
Learn to embrace change and you'll recognize that life is in constant motion and every change happens for a reason. When you see boundaries as opportunities, the world becomes a limitless place and your life becomes a journey of change that always finds its way.
Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day, saying
"I will try again tomorrow." -Mary Anne Radmacher
