For this post I have created 22 quote pictures and wrote a short description under each one to help you stay motivated and striving towards your goals. I hope you enjoy reading.
1. Give yourself another day, another chance. You will find your courage eventually. Don't give up on yourself just yet.
Every day is a new chance to do better than yesterday. If today didn’t go well, tomorrow might go better. Never give up. Never lose hope. Embrace today and look forward to tomorrow, always.
2. Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations
Sometimes the hardest paths lead people to the easiest life. Don’t think of the negatives while you are in this situation. Your journey might be difficult to handle, but always keep in mind that your destination will be really beautiful – just don’t give up.
3. Sometimes, life will kick you around, but sooner or later, you realize you're not just a survivor. You're a warrior, and you're stronger than anything life throws your way.
People that go through the most problems in life turn out to be some of the strongest people that exist in the world. You can be the same. Fight through your tough times, never let yourself be defeated. You were born to be a winner.
4. It's not the days in your life, but the life in your days that counts.
It’s not about having a long life, but it’s about having a quality life. Would you rather live 70 years that are dead/boring or live 40 years that are full of adventure and growth? Make each day count and never take your life for granted.
5. It doesn't matter who you are, or where you came from. The ability to triumph begins with you, always...
No matter what your situation was or currently is, you are capable of so much more than you can imagine. Don’t let anything from your past stop you from becoming a future winner. It all starts and ends with one person: you. So take full control and own that.
6. Follow your passion. Listen to your heart. Trust the process. Be grateful. Life is magic and your dreams matter.
Your passions and dreams are your purpose in life. Don’t ignore them. Do everything you can to make them reality. You only have one life, and it goes fast, so do what you can today, right now, that will take you where you’re destined to be. You deserve to live the life of your dreams. Never forget that.
7. Don't quit. You're already in pain. You're already hurt. Get a reward from it.
You didn’t come this far just to come this far. You have been through all those battles, fights and pain for something great. Believe that. Keep on going… it’s always too soon to quit. Your miracle might just be around the corner. Stay persistent.
8. Do not give up, the beginning is always the hardest.
At first it might not be easy to start on something you always wanted to do. Maybe a business idea or a blog post or just something that you’re excited about. Maybe you’re afraid or you doubt that you can do it. But it’s during times like these that you need to motivate yourself to start. Once you start, you will become unstoppable. And you’ll never want to give up.
9. Strength is what you gain from the madness you survive.
Despite all of the things that life throws at you, you still manage to take it and deal with it somehow. Be proud of yourself. You kept at it and never gave up. You are stronger than you know.
10. You are in unlimited being filled with infinite possibility - with the power to be, do or create anything that you desire in your life.
Everything that you want to do, depends on you. You have the ability to create the life of your dreams and make yourself successful. Push yourself, tell yourself things like “I can” and “I will” and watch yourself thrive.
11. Trials teach us what we are.
Life is a test and how you answer to it defines who you are. When faced with a difficulty, consider it as a test sent from God and do your best to pass the test. You will turn out stronger in the end.
12. The struggle you're in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow. Don't give up.
Today you are weak, but the obstacles you are facing will make you stronger tomorrow. Remember this daily. Every thing that you go through, grows you. Never lose hope and believe that your strength will take you to great places you never even dreamt of going. Keep going and don’t stop until you get there.
13. Fall in love with the process of becoming the very best version of yourself.
The journey of self love is not always easy, some days will be hard and you’ll want to give up on yourself – but don’t let those days defeat you. You got to keep on going, because the end result will be worth it. You will become the strongest and very best version of yourself, only if you don’t give up.
14. Be thankful for what you are now, and keep fighting for what you want to be tomorrow.
You have been through a lot to get where you are today so be grateful for that because you could have been somewhere worse. Believe that you will be in a better place someday in the future. The most important thing is that you’re alive and breathing; feel blessed and give thanks to God.
15. You will go through pain in your life, but how you choose to respond to it is your choice.
When dealing with pain, don’t deal with it by adding more pain to yourself (poor/negative coping mechanisms). Instead research and find the best possible solutions that will help you heal through the pain.
16. When you feel like stopping, think about why you started.
After all this hard work, you want to quit now? What’s the point? You started something to have a great end result, so finish it off. In the end, it will pay off. So keep going. Don’t give up. It’s worth it. You got this.
17. What is broken can be mended. What hurts can be healed. and no matter how hard it gets the sun will rise again.
No matter how bad your life is right now, you can make it better. The bad days are temporary and they will not last. With every bad day, there comes a good day after that. Believe that.
18. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. Fail until you win.
Keep trying. Consistency is what will you get you through it in the end. Never ever ever give up. Your success is important. You deserve it. You are too strong to quit. Failing isn’t bad, you can fail 100 times and succeed on the 101th time. It’s all about the power of not giving up. So don’t.
19. Never be so easily defined by other people's vision of what's possible for you.
No one else knows what you are capable other than you. So don’t let anyone make you think you don’t have what it takes. Believe in yourself. You were born for something amazing. Ignore people’s opinions. Don’t let others limit your potential because it is endless.
20. We all feel lost sometimes.
It’s okay to feel lost in this crazy thing called life. Everyone feels this way at some point. It’s normal. You are not alone in this. You are going through exactly what everyone has/will go through. You are okay. You will be okay. Find yourself first.
21. Make sure your worst enemy doesn't live between your own two ears.
Never speak bad things to yourself. Don’t be your own worst critic. It’s easy to be hard on yourself but you shouldn’t be like this. You are supposed to love yourself and be your own best friend. Always speak good things to yourself and have good thoughts too.
22. Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and think of what could go right.
It’s easy to overthink about things and assume the worst case scenario. Leave this mindset and be more open minded. Think about fun, adventurous, life changing possibilities instead.

The Cold, Harsh Truth About “Detox” Products That You Never Knew
In the world of beauty, health and fitness business, the word “detox” is far too commonly used. For example, you may get offered skincare products such as a detox face mask that promises to help completely remove your blemishes if you use it in the exact way that it has been described on the packaging/label. But the sad truth is that “detoxing” doesn’t actually work; speaking medically, “detoxing” is nonsense. And simply enough, the only real way to get healthy is by diet and exercise.
In this modern era where social media (such as Instagram) exposes “flawless” fitness models to its audience every single day, it is so easy to get sucked in by the detox industry, especially when you are continuously following profiles that show off beautiful skin. You get blown away by the idea of cleansing away your many years of unhealthy eating habits and believe it to be the medicine to your sugar filled calorie intakes and sleepless nights. But wait… before you decide to take steps to a clinical detox solution, you need to first understand the concept of detoxing on a much deeper level: this whole idea that you can completely purify your entire system of flaws and leave your skin spotless and untouchable by toxins – is a scam. It’s a made up concept and the purpose behind it is to sell you products so that substantial profits are being made. It’s all part of business.
Edzard Ernst from Exeter University describes two types of detox where “one is respectable and the other one isn’t”. He goes on to explain that people with life-threatening illnesses that start from conditions such as drug addictions deserve medical treatment, and this may be regarded as a respectable detox. However, the not so respectable one is simply the word “detox” being hijacked by entrepreneurs who want to sell a bogus treatment that apparently detoxifies all the toxins from your body.
Detox doesn’t make sense because you would most likely be dead if toxins actually built up in a way that your body couldn’t excrete. And, the healthy body has kidneys, a liver, lungs, skin, all of which are detoxifying as we speak. So, there is no actual way – and most definitely not through detox treatments – to make something that works perfectly well in a healthy body work better.
Too many products out there in the market mention “toxins” as the poisonous substances that you take in to your body, even though it’s not certain what those toxins are. A group of UK Scientists in 2009 carried out an experiment where they had made contact with the manufactures of 15 products that were being brought from pharmacies and supermarkets that promised to detoxify. These products ranged from dietary supplements to shampoos and smoothies. What’s weird, is that when evidence was being asked for behind the claims, not even one manufacture was able to define what they meant by detoxification. And yet, shelves are overloaded with products with “detox” stuck on their packaging..
The thing is, nowadays you can buy pretty much detoxifying-anything including supplement tablets, face masks, shower gels, yoga treatments, as well as seven-day detox diets – yes you might lose weight but the only reason why you’ll lose it is because you’ll have went without proper food for a week, and unfortunately that has little to do with toxins. Ernst describes all this as a scandal because “it’s criminal exploitation of the gullible man on the street who would love to have a simple remedy that frees him of his sins, so to speak. It’s nice to think that it could exist but unfortunately it doesn’t.”
So let’s talk about alcoholics. Would a detox from alcohol be a good thing? Of course it would be great to go days without alcohol as part of your lifestyle, and it may even give you the opportunity to think about your drinking habits if you’re drinking above the limit. However, the idea that your liver needs to be “purified” through detox is just ridiculous.
If you think about it, the best lifestyle detox involves not smoking or drinking, avoiding processed foods, doing plenty of exercise and overall just enjoying a balanced diet as much as possible, all of which is healthy for you. Just imagine a diet full of all the right treatment and care that your body needs. Wholegrain cereals, fruits, vegetables, plenty of water, sleep, etc. All of this naturally strengthens your immune system without the need for a so called “detox”. So why do all those detox advertisements make you feel like you need to punish yourself in order to be healthy?
In conclusion, I can tell you that detox will never benefit you in the long-run. Sure, you want results from detox, and you’ll get them – but the effects of all those products and treatments will not last for as long as you live. If I could invent an actual definition for the word “detox”, then it would be “getting to the bottom and root cause of every problem in your life and work towards fixing them naturally to ensure the happiest and healthiest version of yourself”. I’m sorry, but you need to be committed to healing the right way, not through some temporary relief in the name of “detox”.
5 Beautiful Reasons Why Traveling Is Good For Your Mind And Soul
In this blog post I’m going to discuss 5 points which explain why traveling can be good for your mind and soul. I hope you enjoy reading. 🙂
1. The less stress, the higher mental well-being
The benefits are enjoyed without distinction, regardless of the type of trip you make, either a long trip abroad or a short getaway to a nearby destination. Leaving the routine behind produces a state of relaxation that reduces stress to unsuspected limits. Traveling is the best way to live in the present and worry only about what you are going to live on a specific day. This directly influences mental health, since according to studies conducted by the University of Arizona, people who make a couple of trips a year have less predisposition to be tense, are more satisfied, and enjoy a better quality of life.
2. Your brain thanks you
Until recently, scientists thought that the brain did not follow its development once adulthood was reached. Today it is known that our minds can continue to grow, neurons can create new connections, and even new neurons can be formed thanks to the training and stimulation of our brain. Scientists find the key in facing the brain to novelty, challenge, and variety. Key pieces that are activated when we plan and enjoy a trip. The need to adapt to a new environment and make a mental map of the places visited are activities that generate a strong mental stimulus, even in people who already have a neurological disease. So there is nothing better for your brain than to take a trip.
3. A stronger heart
According to various studies, traveling reduces the risk of myocardial infarction, especially in people over 45 years. On the other hand, when we travel we stay longer in motion, we walk more and develop more social activities, so that the activity of our circulatory system is benefited. Being on vacation in a different destination than usual also breaks the monotony for our organs.
4. Self-esteem through the clouds
Traveling is a challenge for the body and mind when moving to situations that break our usual dynamics. On many occasions traveling makes us leave our comfort zone, live with different customs, new gastronomies and face unknown languages. Face all these situations and move forward, manage to “survive” in a different place boosts our self-esteem as almost nothing else could do, helping to regain that self-confidence that we sometimes lose in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
5. Time for ourselves
Taking a trip helps us take a distance from our lives and problems. A break can make us find new ways to solve a problem. It helps us to see the difficulties with perspective and relativize the problems that make us worry too much. Learning to value what you have is much easier when you enjoy time to reflect, and this makes us feel better about ourselves.
Traveling makes you happy
Finally, I must add that travel creates illusions, new memories, and links with people of all cultures and races, as well as irreplaceable experiences, since no material good can replace them. From these studies, a definitive conclusion is drawn; traveling makes us happier, in a unique and special way.
6 Great Practices To Be Mentally Strong
6 Great Practices To Be Mentally Strong
Every day we must make decisions and, although some have more impact than others, our future depends on them. There are situations in which it is good to listen to our hearts and let it guide us; However, there are others in which it is better not to get carried away easily by the feelings and decide with the brain. Those who do this are called mentally strong.
These people think well before making a decision. They also put into practice some good customs from which we can all learn:
1. Don’t be afraid of the challenges
It is natural to be afraid of the unknown, to fail, not to do a good job, etc. Sometimes we can be too much of a perfectionist, too judgmental of ourselves, or we have a bad habit of setting high expectations and comparing ourselves to others. All these bad thoughts prevent one from daring to accept new challenges and difficulties. Mentally strong people know that, while it is true that failure is probable if they do not take risks, they can never learn or overcome.
2. Accept the changes
The changes are never easy, but they have a great reward in the process and in the result. If a change is hard to bring, pray constantly for God to provide the necessary wisdom and patience.
3. Look for opportunities
Sometimes, opportunities come to us; Sometimes, you have to go looking for them. Mentally strong people know that persistence is the key to success. If a situation does not go as expected, they continue in the search for new possibilities and do not give up until they find them. They know firsthand that if they fail, again and again, it does not mean that they are unsuccessful, but that they have not tried hard enough.
4. Have a positive mind
People who let their emotions guide themselves are predisposed to a situation without having tried. This bad attitude prevents them from seeing the positive side of life and paralyzes their progress. It is important to understand that every circumstance has a positive side and that if one concentrates on it, it is much simpler to have a more affordable and efficient behavior.
5. Know how to handle criticism
Someone once said criticism hurts like a shower of bricks. Receiving such a blow leaves wounds and marks; However, if you know how to take advantage of them, you could build a house with them. Not all criticism is usually true, but at all times, you can learn from it. Instead of taking negative comments as a discouragement, they should be seen as an incentive to improve and get ahead.
6. Learn from mistakes
Many inventors throughout history had to do many trial and error practices. If they had given up on the first attempt, we would never have been able to enjoy the things we have today. Similarly, mentally strong people see their mistakes as one more attempt, but not as the end result. They make their failures guide them to seek excellence in everything.
…So that’s the complete 6 practices of being mentally strong. What did you think of them? Do you agree? Disagree? Leave your comments below, I look forward to reading them 🙂
