Everyone needs some words of encouragement to start their day, week or month the right way and there are some empowering quotes to supercharge your day that will make you feel like you can conquer the world. These are great quotes to put up around your mirror so that you see them every morning when you're getting ready to conquer the world...or just getting ready for college or work, which let's face it, is the same thing! Here are my favourite empowering quotes that I hope will have the same effect on you.
1. Go after Your Dreams
This is one of my favorite quotes about success and self improvement and it's one of those empowering quotes that reminds you that your dreams aren't going to happen unless you take action and go for it. So be the driver of your dreams and make the changes to achieve the success you dream of.
2. Just do It
Those great philosophers of old had some wonderful words of wisdom to bestow upon us. Think about what it is you want to achieve and then do what you have to do to achieve it. It's as simple as that. Well, not quite. But it is about having the right dialogue in your head to enable you to achieve the things you really want to achieve. There is really no hocus pocus behind it - just simple action in the face of inertia.
3. The Power with
We are the only ones who can put limits on our achievements. We are capable of so much and it really is limitless. If you have the ambition, drive and determination, you can achieve whatever it is you want to achieve.
4. Take Responsibility
I love this quote. Sometimes, we put the power in other people's hands when really, we are the only people who hold the key! If we let them, they can make us feel low. If we let them, they can stop us from doing what we want to do. But only if we let them. Always take responsibility for yourself, dream your biggest and best dreams and never give up.
5. You Can do It
Sometimes, the most simple utterances are the most effective ones and this one really shows that it's all in the mind. If you think that you can't, then you have set yourself up to fail before you have even started. Think positively and with conviction and you will be able to achieve anything you put your mind to. Remember, if you want to do something, you will find a way but if you don't, you will find an excuse!
6. Forget Your Mistakes
Mistakes in life are inevitable, after all, we're only human! But it's what we do with the experiences and what we learn through them that counts. You are not defined by your mistakes and your struggles and dwelling on the past will just bring you further down. Live for today and stop regretting. Move on and use those experiences to make today amazing.
7. Be Brave
Being brave is essential in life and if you're brave enough to continue pursuing your dreams, you can achieve pretty much anything you put your mind to. Positive thinking and self-empowerment are inextricably linked and you can't have one without the other. So be brave and believe what Mr King says here!
