Motivation Monday – Practice Positive Thinking

Welcome to another Motivation Monday. I am a big fan of Fitness Guru, Chalene Johnson. She often talks about using the power of positive thinking. Research behind this idea proves positive thoughts can really help with fitness success. According to Self Magazine, a new study in the Annals of Behavioral Medicine noted that people who believed in their ability to succeed increased their chances by 139 percent! Just knowing this is enough to keep me practicing positive outlook techniques.

At a loss for positive words to fill your thoughts? Check out, which includes a list of hundreds of positive quotes to inspire you. No excuses, give it a try today. Here are a few of my favorites:

We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each by a private chart, of which there is no duplicate. The world is all gates, all opportunities.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.
Arthur C. Clarke

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.

Go find some favorites for yourself and come back and share in a comment. 

Sharing is caring!

I have noticed a huge change with my general outlook on life, just by starting to use positive affirmations and thoughts. Thanks for these quotes I'm going to use the Aristotle one!

Wow, 139 percent, that's certainly a good argument for the 'glass half full' mentality!
