I’m a very strong believer in the power of the tongue. I find what you speak has a very high impact on how your day goes and ultimately what your reality becomes. With that being said, I also enjoy quotes and sayings a lot, which are basically like positive declarations or words that we can repeat to ensure that we have a good day, interview, session, etc. Some of my favorite ones include:
– “If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.” -Maya Angelou
– “I can do all things through God who strengthens me.” – Phillipians 4:13
– “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” -Marianne Williamson

“If there is meaning in life, there is meaning in suffering” and “Suffering without meaning is despair.”
“Tiny change today brings a dramatically different tomorrow.” – Richard Bach

– Motivation is the key to success.
-I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
-Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.
When I read the quote, “I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination”, I feel like that means it doesn’t matter what has happened in the past or what obstacles I’ve had to face, I am ultimately the controller of my own destiny. Do you agree or disagree with this? Would you change anything to this interpretation?
