Positive Motivational Quote: Small Saying, Huge Benefits!

I love to commit to memory a positive motivational quote. Positive quotes are a simple way to reinforce the right message in our brains. We can also recall the quote in times of stress, anxiety or doubt. Here is a beautiful quote about joy.

Joy gives us wings! In times of joy our strength is more vital, our intellect keener, and our understanding less clouded. We seem better able to cope with the world and find our sphere of usefulness.

'Abdu'l-Bahá


Positive motivational quotes also teach us about loving and caring for and about ourselves. We all need to love ourselves more, to believe in ourselves, to know the true wonder of who we are. To learn more about The Power of Love click here!

I think our lives change and we can learn to choose to create success as we remember the truth of who we are. The next quote is from Journey 2 Joy~Personal Development for Busy People.

Our Authentic Self is: Loving, Kind and Compassionate. Our Authentic Self is: Joyful, Free and Creative. Our Authentic Self is: Powerful, Confident and Constructive.


The following is one of my favorite poems that reinforces the truth about ourselves and it aids in our positive thinking. It is a very powerful statement about the wonderful truth of who we are.

Our Deepest Fear
by Marianne Williamson

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

The "Fear Poem" is often mistakenly attributed by Nelson Mandela who used in his 1994 Inauguration Speech. This Poem is from her book, A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles. It is powerful and is a great place to start on your journey to finding out the wonderful truth about yourself! To download a powerful worksheet on this poem check out our totally free stuff!
