Good morning motivational quotes for work

What are you usually thinking about first thing when you wake up? Is it something like “Oh no, I have to go to work again, do that thing I hate again, and be stressed about the work stuff again…”? Or is it more like “Wow, another beautiful day! What can I do to make today amazing?”
Starting your day with an inspiring quote is a bulletproof approach to setting your mind for a positive and successful day. You can also use productivity affirmations to set the intention for getting things done today.
Every morning, choose one quote from this list and make it your mantra for the day. Whenever you start to feel negative, anxious or overwhelmed, re-read it and make a conscious decision to get back on track and be happy.

Wise good morning quotes
31. “Each day is a little life: every waking and rising a little birth, every fresh morning a little youth, every going to rest and sleep a little death.”Arthur Schopenhauer
This quote reminds me about one of my favorite songs, “If today was your last day” by Nickelback. It’s not exactly what the quote is about, but the intention is similar: see every day as a fresh slate and make the best of it as you never know how many days you’ve got left. Don’t wait for the better circumstances as they may never come if you just sit and wait. Live your life to the fullest and enjoy every day you spend on Earth!
I’ll just leave this song here for you to listen to the lyrics:
32. “Today is a new day. Don’t let your history interfere with your destiny! Let today be the day you stop being a victim of your circumstances and start taking action towards the life you want.

You were not meant for a mundane or mediocre life!” – Steve Maraboli

38. “Today is a new day. It’s a day you have never seen before and will never see again. Stop telling yourself the ‘same crap, different day’ lie! How many days has that lie stolen from you? Seize the wonder and uniqueness of today! Recognize that throughout this beautiful day, you have an incredible amount of opportunities to move your life into the direction you want it to go.” – Steve Maraboli

Good morning positive energy quotes
41. “Smile in the mirror. Do that every morning and you’ll start to see a big difference in your life.”Yoko Ono
There are people who are sceptic on the subject of affirmations, and there are others who manifest the life of their dreams and live it every day. Surrounding yourself with positive energy is important for letting the Universe know the clarity of your intentions and clarifying the path for yourself. But it has to start inside, with a conscious effort to become happier and find a reason to smile every day.
While happiness affirmations are focused directly on you and your personal happiness, many people find general positive good morning quotes less intimidating. I love both tools and give you the options to decide how you’d like to improve your mood! Here are some quotes to fill yourself with good vibes and positive energy for a whole day!

Two hours later we arrived in a small town, one of those towns with one single coffee shop and where everyone knows each other’s name. I walked for a while until I found the water, the most peaceful place I know. There I sat and stayed the whole day, with nothing and everything on my mind, cleaning my head. Silence, I learned, is some times the most beautiful sound.” – Charlotte Eriksson
47. “Every morning has a unique story. There are always some seeds of possibilities waiting to sprout.” ― Amit Ray
