7 Quotes To Give Your Life Meaning, Clarity & A Dose Of Magic

Wednesday 27 August 2014 0 comments

During childhood, my mom took me to the library or bookstore every single week. As I read, I always saw symbolism and deeper meaning in the text, even in childish fairytales. I always pretended words were actually magic fairy dust being sprinkled to add love, laughter, wisdom, fun or purpose to my life. Even as an adult, I feel that way.


Quotes in particular have served as a means for my personal evolution. Here's a few I hope fill your life with inspiration.
1. "Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life." - Wayne Dyer

When you do things you love — whether it's work, fun activities, or spending time with people you love — you attract more of that into your life. Remember, the reverse is also true.

2. "Don't let anyone tell you that daydreaming is a waste of time: the only people who would dare tell you that are people without any vision." - Susan Miller

How else can you identify what you truly want to have, be or contribute to the world? Everything starts with a thought, a vision and a self-manufactured plan.

3. "The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears." - Native American proverb

If we never experienced sadness or pain, how could we possibly appreciate joy or pleasure? This quote reminds me that every storm has sunshine at the end.

4. "My advice to you is get married: if you find a good wife you'll be happy; if not, you'll become a philosopher." - Socrates

This quote is about taking risks. Each thing we experience in life makes us stronger, wiser, and gets us one step closer to fulfilling our purpose.

5. “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” - Michael Jordan

Sometimes you'll have to disappoint yourself or others. However, with each ounce of effort, each courageous step forward and persistence we can achieve what we set out to do. Never give up.

6. “If you take away a person’s struggle, you take away their victory. It’s like pulling a caterpillar out of it’s cocoon before it’s time. It will never develop into a butterfly.” - Cameron C. Taylor

As a recovering co-dependent, I've always taken on responsibilities that weren't my own. I thought I was helping, when in reality I disempowered myself and made those folks feel like I thought they were incapable.

7. “If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough.” - Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

This reminds me to stop playing small. We weren't put on this earth to be average or good. We were put here to be great. Set your intentions and goals really high, to stretch yourself to growth. Every monumental success was seemingly impossible at one point.
