7 thoughts on “Quotable Quotes on Positive Thinking

  1. My career counselor always told me to stay positive and be happy for the rest of my life. There are lots of opportunities out there waiting for us and we must take advantage of that. If we come across something negative along the road, we must eliminate it by thinking about positive things in our lives. Positive thinking can help us make a good impression to others, especially in behavioral interviews when they see if you are the type of person that is the best fit for the job.

  2. Staying positive will make you not only feel happier but can also make you more productive. I believe if people stay in a positive attitude when facing unhappy situation, you won’t be that affected because you will always think on the bright side.

  3. Positive thinking is something we should all try and implement in our lives. It is something that shapes our personality which eventually impacts our outlook of the world. How you see the world determines how successful of a person you can become.

  4. Staying positive is the way to go. See the glass as half full, not half empty. When you have a positive attitude, you will have better results. I know from personal experiences. When I walked into a test nervous and pessimistic, I did bad on it. However, when I walked in positive, even though I knew that I didn’t know everything and was not 100% ready, I did better since I was calm and not freaking out. By thoughtful process of elimination, I did better than freaking out and giving up on tests.

  5. One quote that really stood out to me was the quote by Thomas Edison in which he stated, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” We have to realize that no one is going to hand us something on a silver platter. An opportunity will not be given to us for no reason. We have to work hard and create an opportunity for ourselves.

  6. I couldn’t agree with this idea any more!! My grandfather always speaks about “The Secret” which was a book and became a movie because of its popularity. It pretty much just emphasizes the power of positive thinking. For example, it says that if you’re trying to get married, only sleep on one side of your bed. This will lead you to positive results!!!

  7. If you are a negative (pessimistic) person people won’t like to hang out around you. Its makes people feel bad and sad when something bad happens.
