Some of my favorite Good Morning Quotes

“I am not what I ought to be, but by being so much better than my best self, I shall succeed in becoming it.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you’re looking for a good quote to share with friends, then these are the perfect ones. They’re short, sweet, and inspirational. You can use them as a greeting card, or even just send them out as an email.

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

This quote by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was said during his first inaugural address in 1933. It has been attributed to many people throughout history, but it was actually written by Eleanor Roosevelt. She wrote it after her husband died, and she wanted to remind herself not to let grief consume her life.

“You don’t know how strong you are until being strong is the only option you have.” – Unknown Author

You don’t know how strong you are unless you face adversity. If you never face any challenges, you will never know what strength really means. So when you feel down, take a moment to think about the things you do well. Think about the times you overcame obstacles and achieved goals. Remember that you are stronger than you realize.

“It’s not about winning or losing; it’s about playing the game.” – Michael Jordan

It’s easy to become discouraged when life gets tough. However, there are plenty of people who have overcome difficult situations and still managed to achieve success. In fact, one study found that people with high self-esteem were more likely to succeed in life. So, instead of focusing on the negative aspects of your situation, focus on the positive things you can learn from it.

“The secret of happiness is freedom, the secret of freedom is courage.” – Albert Camus

Happiness is not something we achieve; it is something we become. We must learn how to live with less so we can enjoy more.

“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to become great.” – Steve Jobs

You might think that happiness comes naturally as you age, but research shows it takes work to stay happy. In fact, studies show that people who are unhappy tend to be less productive than those who are satisfied. So, what do you need to do to make yourself happier? Start by taking small steps toward making changes in your life.

“If you live each day as though it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” – Unknown Author

If you’re looking for ways to improve your mood, try changing something about your daily routine. Studies suggest that doing things we enjoy makes us feel better, because our brains release endorphins, chemicals that give us feelings of pleasure. So, instead of watching TV, take a walk outside. Instead of surfing the Internet, read a book. And instead of eating junk food, eat healthy foods that will fuel your body with energy.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

You might not realize it, but your actions affect others every day. Whether you’re helping someone out at work or volunteering at an organization, you’re making a difference in other people’s lives. In fact, research shows that when people help others, they tend to feel happier and more satisfied with their own lives.

“A man who has no imagination has no wings.” – Aristotle

If you want to make a positive impact on the world, you need to think outside the box. That means being creative and thinking differently than everyone else. To do so, you need to develop your imagination.
