A few of my "Favorite" motivational words

I thought I would open my book of snippets I've saved over time and share a few today.

I think that you can never read God's word to much or say a motivational word to lift someone up too much. So see if you enjoy these...

The Power of Attitude
Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but by how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst... a spark that creates extraordinary results.

The Essence of Character
Your true character is revealed by the clarity of your convictions, the choices you make, and the promises you keep. Hold strongly to your principles and refuse to follow the currents of convenience. What you say and do defines who you are, and who you are... you are forever.

The Light of Optimism
Sometimes we learn the hard way that it doesnt pay to get discouraged. Positive thinking is an intellectual choice, and by keeping our eyes focused on the light of optimism, we can restore faith in ourselves, and stay clear of the shadows.

The Essence of Success
Successful is the person who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of children, who leaves the world better than they found it, who has never lacked appreciation for the earths beauty, who never fails to look for the best in others or give the best of themselves.

The Essence of Destiny
Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Choose your words, for they become actions. Understand your actions, for they become habits. Study your habits, for they will become your character. Develop your character, for it becomes your destiny.

Destiny is not by chance, it is a choice.
