If you’re looking for some great quotes that’ll pick you up when life gets you down, then you’ve come to the right place. From the ‘build you up’ quote to the ‘raise a smile’ there’s a great selection here.
1. “Whoever is trying to bring you down is already below you.” – Anonymous
Yes, they really are. Because decent people don’t try to bring others down. So why on earth are you letting their opinion affect you? Someone who tries to belittle others is actually someone you should feel sorry for – because such behaviour signifies a person who really doesn’t feel good about themselves.
So, sod ‘em! Ignore them, and move on. They’re simply not worth it…
2. “Peace begins with a smile.” – Mother Theresa
Who better to think of when you need some positive reinforcement? The modern day Saint, Mother Theresa, was right with this one. Smile and things already start to feel a little better. Honestly, they do. Try it right now, and you’ll see how true it is.
3. “Smile… It’ll either warm their heart of p*!s them off… Either way, you win!” – Anonymous
Ha! We love this one. And it carries on from the quote above. Because once you smile, you’re taking control of your emotions. So keep doing it – a lot…!

5. “Wherever you go, whatever you do, always bring your own sunshine.” – Anthony J. D’Angelo
What a lovely saying. You – and only you – are responsible for bringing along your positive vibes. So why on earth would you want anything different? We all know that super positive, super happy person who radiates good to those around them. So why not aspire to be that person? Because you really can be…
6. “Clear your mind of can’t.” – Anonymous
Never a truer word has been said. Because if you tell yourself you can’t – then you won’t. But if you tell yourself you CAN, then you’ll be amazed at how much you can achieve.
So every time you feel that inner voice telling that you that it’s not possible, counter it with a positive affirmation – and tell yourself that actually, I CAN!

You want to look fabulous? Then start by training your thoughts to be good, positive ones. It honestly does work…
