“The biggest rewards in life are found outside your comfort zone. Live with it. Fear and risk are prerequisites if you want to enjoy a life of success and adventure.”

Jack Canfield


Why do I like the quote?

Taking that step into the unknown can be full of fear and risk, but the possibilities and sense of achievement that comes from stepping outside of your comfort zone make it all so worth it. It's uncomfortable, but being stuck in the same place brings much more discomfort and regret in the long run.

"At the end of the day people won't remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel."

Maya Angelou

"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."

“The art of peaceful living comes down to living compassionately & wisely.”

Allan Lokos


Why do I like the quote?

Any quote that reminds me to slow down, make wise choices and be kind is a favourite quote of mine. Being kind to yourself and others is an under-rated tool for happiness.

“You’re always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company.”

Diane Von Furstenberg


Why do I like the quote?

We can be so critical and harsh towards ourselves. You wouldn't enjoy the company of someone else who treated you like that. Don't accept it from yourself either. Be kind to yourself instead.

Happiness cannot be travelled to, owned, or worn. It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude

Denis Waitley


Why do I like the quote?

I sometimes fall into the trap of looking outside of myself for happiness, I will believe that until I get X, Y or Z, I won't be happy. Quotes like this are my reminder that it's all about the journey ;)

"Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely."

Roy T. Bennett


Why do I like the quote?

I could use a Roy T. Bennett quote every day. This is a simple message, we have a choice in how we live our lives. We forget that. We live in a blame culture. I mess up, I do and say things I regret. taking responsibility for those things is what helps me move forward and attempt to do it different next time.

"The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing"

Walt Disney


Why do I like the quote?

All too often I find myself talking about the things I want to do. Perhaps I will even make excuses for why I am unable to do them right now, but they are just excuses. This quote is always my reminder to make a plan of action and start, now.
