Positive anything is better than negative nothing.
When you get into a tight place and everything goes against
you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute
longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and
time that the tide will turn.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative
It is important that you recognize your progress and take
pride in your accomplishments. Share your achievements with
others. Brag a little. The recognition and support of those
around you is nurturing.
If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything.
The basis of optimism is sheer terror.
Keep true, never be ashamed of doing right; decide on what
you think is right and stick to it.
There are always flowers for those who want to see them.
Don't take 'no' for an answer, never submit to failure. Do
not be fobbed off with mere personal success or acceptance.
You will make all kinds of mistakes, but as long as you are
generous and true, and also fierce, you cannot hurt the world
If you think about disaster, you will get it. Brood about
death and you hasten your demise. Think positively and masterfully,
with confidence and faith, and life becomes more secure, more
fraught with action, richer in achievement and experience.
If you don't get everything you want, think of the things
you don't get that you don't want.
The sun does not shine for a few trees and flowers, but for
the wide world's joy.
Henry Ward Beecher
Got no checkbooks, got no banks,
Still I'd like to express my thanks -
I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night.
I Got the Sun in the Morning.
"It's snowing still," said Eeyore gloomily.
"So it is," said Christopher Robin.
"Yes," said Eeyore. "However," he said,
brightening up a little, "we haven't had an earthquake
The House at Pooh Corner.
Remember even though the outside world might be raining, if
you keep on smiling the sun will soon show its face and smile
back at you.
Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing is gonna be alright
Optimism is the one quality more associated with success and
happiness than any other.
In times of great stress or adversity, it's always best to
keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something
You've done it before and you can do it now. See the positive
possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration
and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.
Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
The Bible, John 16:24
There is little difference in people, but that little difference
makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude.
The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.
W. Clement Stone
I'm not sure what the future holds but I do know that I'm
going to be positive and not wake up feeling desperate. As
my dad said Nic, it is what it is, it's not what it should
have been, not what it could have been, it is what it is.
Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable,
or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.
It's so hard when I have to, and so easy when I want to.
One of the redeeming things about being an athlete is redefining
what is humanly possible.
Optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation
of courage and true progress.
Nicholas Murray Butler
Those who wish to sing, always find a song.
If you don't like something change it; if you can't change
it, change the way you think about it.
Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a singing bird
Nothing is interesting if you're not interested.
