Stop waiting until tomorrow to live the life you dream of; the best day of your life could be happening today. Get out on the right side of the bed and follow these top mantras to make this day and every day the best they can possibly be.
SUPPORTING ANOTHER’S SUCCESS WON’T EVER DAMPEN YOURS.
Blowing out someone else’s candle won’t make yours shine any brighter, so let’s all stick together, empower one another and celebrate the great things we’re all achieving.
YOU CAN’T POUR FROM AN EMPTY CUP. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF FIRST.
Taking care of yourself should be your number one priority at the top of your to-do list every morning. You deserve the time and effort you put into everything else to be put into yourself first of all.
GET UP. DRESS UP. SHOW UP & NEVER GIVE UP NO MATTER WHAT.
Sometimes having the energy to get out of bed is a task in itself. Dress yourself in your prettiest matching underwear set, grab your most confidence-boosting outfit and rock that realm!
“YOU CAN’T LET YOUR FAILURES DEFINE YOU, YOU HAVE TO LET YOUR FAILURES TEACH YOU.” – BARACK OBAMA
Everyone has little setbacks crop up in life, but if they didn’t happen how would you know what you can do to improve? We learn from failure, not success, and what do we do when we fall down? We get back up again. After all, J.K Rowling fell down 12 times before Harry Potter was accepted by a publisher and I’m preeetty sure she wouldn’t be ruling the empire she is today without those little failures.
A BIRD SITTING ON A TREE IS NEVER AFRAID OF THE BRANCH BREAKING, BECAUSE HER TRUST IN NOT ON THE BRANCH, BUT ON HER OWN WINGS.
Believe in yourself and your own abilities, and trust me, you’ll be unstoppable!
WAS IT A BAD DAY? OR WAS IT A BAD FIVE MINUTES YOU MILKED ALL DAY?
So a rubbish thing happened that instantly changed your mood from YAY to NAY. Spend five minutes feeling all the emotions, then put your head up, stay strong, fake a smile and move on. And when all else fails, take inspiration from our forever Queen Michelle Obama once said, “You have a bad day, you go to bed, you wake up, and you work a little harder”.
“FOR ME, THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN YOUR LIFE IS TO LIVE YOUR LIFE WITH INTEGRITY, AND NOT TO GIVE INTO PEER PRESSURE, TO TRY TO BE SOMETHING THAT YOU’RE NOT.” – ELLEN DEGENERES
A LITTLE PROGRESS EACH DAY ADDS UP TO BIG RESULTS.
Slow progress is better than no progress, and you’re already ahead of where you were when you first began! Start celebrating the mini milestones to spur you on to keep going.
LESS SCROLLING, MORE LIVING.
Life is happening whilst you’re scrolling through your social feeds. Experience the moment as it’s happening around you instead of viewing someone else’s perception of it through a screen.
FORGET ABOUT COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS AND THE PATHS THEY’RE ON, BECAUSE THIS YEAR IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU.
Comparison is the thief of joy, right? So why spend time focusing on what others are doing or what others think you should be doing and focus on planning the life YOU want to live. You got this.
