17 Self-Help Quotes that Inspire You to be a Better Person

self-help quotesHave you ever read a great quote and thought, “Why didn’t I think of that? It is so simple!

This is the power of brilliantly said self-help quotes – they pass your through your mind and find immediate response in your heart.

It does not matter if you read them when you are 10 or 87, they will still remind and inspire you to be kinder, to dream bolder, to work harder, to forgive faster, and to love deeper without expecting anything in return.

I noticed long ago that whenever I start my day with a positive and inspiring quote it is much easier for me to stay focused on the things I prize the most and to be more patient with myself and those around me.

Today I thought maybe you too are in need of some motivation and positive energy. If this is the case, I want to share with you some carefully selected Self-Help Quotes that are very dear to my heart. I hope that they will inspire you to continue improving yourself (because that is what all great quotes are supposed to do).

    Arina, you once again hit the nail on the head.

    Starting the day with a touch of positive or motivation from our favorite quotes is almost as simple as the old saying “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away” and to paraphrase it, it would go something like this: “A positive quote per day, helps keep a negative attitude away”

    Thanks for helping my day start off on the right track with your Quote of the Day.

    Cheers, Smiles, Love, Laughs and Success,
