What we resist, not only persists but will also grow in size. ~ Carl Jung.

By being a happy person, by focusing on the good rather than the bad, on the positive rather than the negative, on what we want rather than what we don't want, we are able to transform ourselves, our lives and the lives of those around us.

When you acknowledge what you do NOT want, and then ask yourself, "What is it that I DO want?" you begin a gradual shift into the telling of your new story and into a much-improved point of attraction… You are also telling the future experience that you are creating right now. ~ Abraham Hicks

You've gotta have hope. Without hope life is meaningless. Without hope life is meaning less and less. ~Author Unknown

Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world. ~ the Buddha

By beautifying our thoughts, by using kind words when we speak with ourselves and with others, by looking for opportunities instead of obstacles, by looking for the good in ourselves and others and by praising the good traits instead of the bad ones, we help boost our own self esteem, self confidence and also the self confidence of those we interact with. By doing so, we help transform negative behaviors into positive ones and we go from being unhappy to being happy.

Give yourself entirely to those around you. Be generous with your blessings. A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal. ~ Steve Maraboli

You help people awaken by telling them how much you believe in them and by showing them how much you care about their needs and desires. So many of us live most of our lives on auto pilot and by treating people differently and by praising vs. criticizing, you help awaken the giant within them. ~ Tony Robbins

Once the soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back. From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never again let you linger in the lowlands of complacency and partial fulfillment. The eternal makes you urgent. You are loath to let compromise or the threat of danger hold you back from striving toward the summit of fulfillment. ~ John O'Donohue

When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing — then we truly live life.~ Greg Anderson

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. ~ Mark Twain

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. ~ Carl Gustav Jung

Happiness never decreases by being shared ~ the Buddha
