The 3 Days quotes challenges have been making the rounds in the WordPress for a few weeks now. It is very interesting to read some of the insightful quotes some of you have shared.
I was tagged for the challenge by David. Thank you so much for nominating me. I strongly recommend following his blog. Check it out at https://chapeblog.wordpress.com
Day one quotes:
Quote 1: Gandhi on How to Change the World
“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” ~Gandhi
It’s easy to get frustrated by all the violence and pain being experienced around the world, and even easier to feel helpless about it. But rather than sitting around waiting for the world to change, it’s better to start making changes within your own sphere of influence. The theory behind this quote is that if everyone tended to their own selves the world would be the way we all want it to be. What can you do today that would help make the world around you a better place? By making the changes you wish the world would make you instantly and automatically make the world better.
Quote 2: Helen Keller on Keeping the Best Outlook
“Keep your face to the sunshine and you can never see the shadow.” ~Helen Keller
As long as you’re looking on the bright side of things you’ll be ignoring the not-so-good things in your life. What you give attention to grows, so if you’re focusing on what’s wrong in your life you’ll just get more of it to focus on. But if you focus on what’s right in your life, what makes you happy, what you’re grateful for, and why things are so fantastic for you, you’ll only get more of the same to be happy and grateful for. Some days are easier to face towards the sunshine than others, but it’s always there, you just have to try harder during hard times.
Quote 3: Roger Staubach on the Benefit of Giving More
“There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.” ~Roger Staubach
Not many people go the extra mile, which makes it easy for the rest of us to get to where we want to go. They say it’s lonely at the top, and this is because few people ever make it that far. Going the extra mile is part of that process, and it’s a habit you can start getting into right away if it’s not currently a part of your makeup. Try it out on a small scale in your personal relationships, or at your current job. As you make it a habit you’ll notice more and more opportunities to go above and beyond, and you’ll be able to accomplish more and more.
