I thank Tiya and Jay Caniel*, two of the most positive people I know, for posting this quote on Instagram recently.
Discovering the right quote at the right time can make the difference between whether we reach our highest potential in life or not. I am always on the lookout for good quotes— ones that inspire me. Whether they be from famous thinkers or not-so-famous ones, quotes can be the words that motivate us to take another step, inspire us to try again, or improve our belief in ourselves and what we are capable of.
Today’s quote spoke to me for the obvious reason. As we begin a brand new year, we should be very excited about the future. If you aren’t excited about the future, then it’s time for you to find a reason to be.
I am very excited about 2013— more excited than I’ve been about a new year in quite some time. In addition to the many exciting Be Unlimited projects that are soon to be unveiled, there are personal goals that I am also intending to see materialize in the next twelve months. I’m looking up, to say the least. That’s what you should be doing, too.
Sure, it might be easier said than done, but you must try. Whether you’ve been knocked down or if you’ve just lost sight of a better vision for yourself and for your life, I encourage you to find something worth being excited about. Remember, it’s a choice. Make it your choice. Hopefully these words spark something in you: an idea, an action, a change.
You never know where your source of inspiration will come from. As always, be on the lookout for quotes that speak to you. Stay open to the possibilities of what you can discover in the world and in yourself. And get excited about the future…YOUR future!
Be better. Be inspired. Be unlimited.
