Positive thinking quotes can help you to better your life. They are not just inspiring because of their content, the message they transmit but also the people who came up with them.
One of the greatest leaders of our times was Winston Churchill. One of the many things worth writing down he said was this:
“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
There is so much condensed wisdom and truth in this simple sentence.
It is really about making a choice in your life. Do you want to use opportunities to get ahead, or do you want to use obstacles to stay in the same place?
Do you want to use a key to open a door, or do you want to run around searching for your keys?
It’s the things that you focus on that come into your life. If you always see the difficulty, things will be difficult. And then it’s time to change your thinking.
That’s not so easy. Because our ways of thinking are habitual. Over time, our thoughts develop a kind of momentum that takes on a life of its own.
Even when you consciously make the choice: I will think positively, I will see opportunities – your brain will still go down that same old route again and again.
