I am a strong believer in the power that the written and spoken word can have. I have shared thousands of motivational and inspirational quotes with people from all over the world, with the sincere hope that the positive words that I share will inspire people to change, take action and most importantly, have more belief in themselves.
I also believe in the power of affirmations. Reading an inspirational or motivational quotes is one thing, but actually reprogramming your brain by saying positive affirmations can be a powerful and exciting life changing habit.
Reading quotes on Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter takes little effort, but taking the time to say powerful positive affirmations takes both effort and serious commitment, but the payoff is well worth it. By reprogramming your personal belief system, you can change the way you think, feel and act everyday.
Very often we don’t take much notice of how we speak to ourselves everyday. What do you say when the alarm goes off every morning? What do you say on a Sunday evening when you know that you have five days of work ahead of you? How do you speak to yourself while you are at work or at home? Starting the positive habit of saying affirmations can totally change how we face each day and have a powerful positive effect on our lives. Saying positive affirmations is a powerful way to change how we feel and approach each day, they can inspire us to take positive action, and they can fill us full of both confidence and joy.
Just take a few minutes every morning to read the following affirmations to get your mindset ready for the day ahead. You can also write down three positive affirmations each morning in your personal journal for added power.
Make the commitment to say these powerful affirmations every morning with confidence and total belief for the next 7 days and see the positive change they will have on your life.

50 Thought Provoking Existential Questions
What are existential questions?
Existential questions are usually deep, philosophical questions that question just that — our very existence.
They can be great conversation starters and they can also sometimes make for a passionate discussion. The following existential questions can be a great way to get to know someone better and perhaps even learn new things about yourself.
The word existential comes from the Latin word “existentia”, which means to exist. Existential questions challenge our way of thinking, our beliefs and our perspective.
Is there a right or wrong answer to an existential question? Perhaps not, as each question usually just asks more questions.
