We grow up getting a lot of problems and dealing with many issues, but we grow through them too.
A powerful quote is what you need in tough times to help you grow and see the lessons life is trying to teach you.
These quotes can affect your life decisions changing your life forever.
Here are the 8 powerful quotes that might change your life forever:
1. Everyone must choose one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.
Quote by Jim Rohn an entrepreneur and motivational speaker. There’s no success without sacrifice. We have to pay the price to get what we want.
The pain of being disciplined for years is hard and the pain of regretting your whole life is hard too. But the pain of regret is the hardest because you carry it your whole life.
Discipline is hard too, but there’s no victory without pain.
2. No amount of anxiety makes any difference to anything that is going to happen.
Quote by Alan Watts. Some things are destined to happen and will happen no matter what you do.
Triggering your anxiety by worrying and thinking about the future will never change it. The right thing to do is to accept things as it is.
You can’t control everything in life, but you can choose what to focus on controlling.
3. Almost nothing material is needed for a happy life, for he who has understood existence.
Quote by Marcus Aurelius. We need materials to make our life easier and better, but not for a happy life. Like we need money to have a better quality of life.
With money, you can have a better home, food, and standard of living. This contributes to your joy in life.
But when it comes to happiness, it has everything to do with how content you are now. That’s what confuses many people.
Most people have this idea of being content with themselves only after they own materials. But most people are greedy, which makes the process hard.
You can be content with who you are, wherever you are.
4. Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
Quote by Epicurus. Practicing gratitude and knowing the value of what you have is important in life.
The problem is that most people don’t value what they have in life. They fail to realize that what they have is worth more than what they don’t have.
5. We suffer more in imagination than in reality.
Quote by Seneca. This is one of my favorite quotes of all time. We put ourselves through much suffering by thinking about problems that may never happen. Over-thinkers can relate to this quote a lot.
6. Worrying is like paying a debt you don’t owe.
Quote by Mark Twain. You waste a lot of time worrying about a future you can’t change.
You are paying for something that isn’t yours. You can’t precisely know what exactly will happen in the future.
7. It may seem difficult at first, but all things are difficult at first.
Quote by Miyamoto Musashi. The first step is always the hardest.
Whether you are learning a new language skill, it will be so difficult that you may think about quitting.
But here’s this quote to calm you down and let you know that every beginning is difficult.
8. No man is free who cannot control himself.
Quote by Pythagoras. If you don’t control your desire, emotions, and reactions, you will always be controlled by them.
