170 Fresh Inspirational Quotes

I've always wanted to have a book I can read when things get tough, and it is such a special thing to be able to write that book myself!

Personal and Relatable

This is not a random collection of quotes by different people. It is a real life story in short sentences. Things I've been through, and valuable lessons I've learned along the way. The words I believed in to get me through the many phases of doubt, insecurity, and fearfulness. And they are so relatable that they can change your life too!

The Inspiration Behind the Words

The power of positive thinking! We really are what we think and repeat time after time in our heads. Just like a negative state of mind can make us feel down, a positive mindset can change our whole world for the better.

A couple of years ago I stumbled upon this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson: "What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." It made me stop, think, and look up some more quotes. The power of words can be astonishing!

That's where it all started. I took the decision to keep my thoughts positive, and so I started jotting down those little things that made all the difference.

I started writing them down, and I never looked back. My life has never been the same ever since.
Why Put Them in a Book?   

I just would love for these simple, but deep, words to be an inspiration to someone, the reason to follow a dream, to never give up, and to keep on believing.

Having been through a lot, I know that all it takes at times is those simple words of encouragement. It's all one interesting journey that you can take and make your own.

And just as one of the quotes in the book says: "Focusing on the negatives is more tempting. But focusing on the positives is more rewarding."

So feel free to enjoy the quotes, live the experience, and embrace the journey.
