The mindset we bring into each day is critical. Ultimately, it determines whether challenging times break us or make us stronger.
We want to share a few inspiring words to help you on the path to resilience. Below are thirteen mindset quotes to help you weather adversity.
The mindset we bring into each day holds significant weight.
Quote: It all begins and ends in your mind. What you give power to has power over you if you allow it. – @MasteringLawofAttraction
We can’t control the world around us, but we have power over our response.
Quote: Nothing outside of you has power over you. You decide how you think, feel, and do things in your life. Take full ownership and become free. – @MasteringLawofAttraction
Take your power back by grasping on to what you can control—your thoughts.
Quote: Powerful change happens when you take control of the things you have power over instead of craving control of the things you do not. – Inspired by Marc & Angel
We can change our thinking patterns, one day, one thought at a time.
Quote: It takes roughly 66 days to form a new habit. So, for the next nine weeks, wake up every morning and look at the bright side of your life, and you will rewire your brain. – Marc & Angel
Our inner monologue plays a considerable role in our mindset.
Quote: It’s not what you broadcast to everyone else that determines the trajectory of your life. It’s what you whisper to yourself behind closed doors that has the greatest power and influence. – Marc & Angel
It’s easy to focus on the negative, but that only breeds more negative feelings.
Quote: An entire sea of water can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside of it. Similarly, the world’s negativity can’t bring you down unless you allow it to get inside of you. – Goi Nasu
Having a mindset to weather adversity isn’t about ignoring the bad. It’s about looking for the good alongside it.
Quote: Practicing gratitude doesn’t mean burying unwanted feelings or looking for the silver lining in a bad situation. It’s acknowledging what is good alongside the mess. – Inspired by Heidi Barr
We can’t always dictate the circumstances of life, but we can change how we think about them.
Quote: In this life, we’re all just climbing up the mountain. We can sing as we hike or complain about our sore feet. But, whatever we choose, we still have to do the trek. So, I decided a long time ago singing made a lot more sense. – Tiny Buddha
Our mindset influences our stress levels.
Quote: The most powerful weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another. Train your mind to see the good in each day. – Marc & Angel
Look at things from another angle. We often complain about the very things many would give anything to have.
Quote: Begin your day with an “I get to” mentality instead of an “I have to” thought process. I GET to go to work. I GET to have a busy day. We often dress our opportunities as stress, but they are, in fact, blessings. – @MasteringLawofAttraction
Mindset is about tweaking our lens. It’s often adversity that shapes us by transforming our perspective on life.
Quote: The most profound growth does not happen while reading a book or meditating on a mat. It happens in the throes of conflict—when you are angry, afraid, frustrated. It happens when you are doing the same old thing, and you suddenly realize that you have a choice. – Vironika Tugaleva
Part of mindset is finding acceptance and learning to navigate the world we’re living in— right now—in the current moment.
Quote: Release your attachments to how things ought to be and instead surrender to how they are. – Shefali Tsabary
It takes courage. But only when we let go and find acceptance can we find peace and grow.
Quote: It takes a lot more courage to let something go than it does to hang on to it. Letting go doesn’t mean ignoring a situation. It means accepting what is exactly as it is, without fear, resistance, or a struggle for control. – Iyanla Vanzant
