Above quote defines my life journey which is from struggle to happiness.
It’s more than a motivational quote. It’s rather a testament that has come from my own life experiences of ups and downs.
And through sharpquotes.com, I’m hopeful to bring motivation, confidence, hope, strength, change, courage and wisdom in your life too. You can develop these virtues by finding the purpose and meaning of your life.
Reading motivational quotes is the prime thing that can help you find both the purpose and hence the meaning of your life. It did it for me, so it can do for you.
I too have gone through phases of depression, clueless thinking, rejection, confusion, loneliness, sadness, failure and feeling of giving up. That’s why I understand them better.
Believe me when I say that they all will be diminished when you begin understanding your strength. You’ll feel better. You’ll feel the happiness. People will start liking and respecting you. You will enjoy your life to its fullest. Things will start making sense to you. Positive people will be attracted to you. You’ll get the unexpected opportunities in your life. Your life will be improved. You’ll feel relaxed and peaceful from inside. And this will happen at all five levels in your life, i.e. Social, Emotional, Physical, Professional and Personal.
I wish that it also brings the “new” you, making your life happy and successful.
A little story from my life that made a big impact
Quotes gave me the much needed light in the times of darkness. I was struggling to find the path for my career as well as for my life, but was feeling lost in the directionless loop. I had no clue or inspiration about my future.
One day, while I was walking on road-side, I saw a small pocketbook displayed on a book-store. I somehow felt compelled to take a look at that, and felt like it was fetching me towards it. So I went. I took the pocketbook in my hands and it was about 100 motivational quotes to change your life.
I purchased it right away. I sat on a bench near by and started reading it. I read one by one and read them all in half an hour. Suddenly, I felt that something changed within me. I started feeling some unknown power inside me full of positivity and confidence. All of a sudden, I started seeing my path clearly. I knew what I had to do to become successful. I began right away and rest is the history. My career and life both changed drastically for better. Money started pouring on me and I started enjoying my work. I got married.
Now I’m enjoying my life with my wife and son.
It all happened because of reading those quotes that day.
