11 Effective Ways to Live Life

Live-- decently, fearlessly, joyously--and don’t forget that in the long run it is not the years in your life but the life in your years that counts! ~ Adlai Stevenson

I think the purpose of life is to be happy, to be useful, to be responsible, to be honorable, and to be compassionate. It is, above all, to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all. ~ Leo Rosten.

Life is not a bed of roses, but you can live life meaningfully and happily. It is up to you to change your thoughts and change your life to enjoy living life fully.

1.      Hope: Hope is about expecting good things to happen. We live because we believe that tomorrow will be a better day.

There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonics so powerful as the expectation of something better tomorrow. ~ Orison Swett Marden

2.      Confidence: You are sure of yourself to get things done. There will be problems, but you are also sure of overcoming them.   

Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.  ~Norman Vincent Peale

You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through. ~ Rosalynn Carter

3.      Optimism: Optimism is more than just hopefulness. It is your believe that things will turn up all right for you. You go ahead confidently and do what you have to do without fear.

Optimism is the foundation of courage.  ~Nicholas Murray Butler

4.      Courage Do you have the courage to make changes in life? When you change, you change your life for the better.

Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.  ~Raymond Lindquist

5.      Perseverance: Success is to continue doing what you think is the right thing to do even though you don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. In the end, you will be an overnight success under the spotlight all of a sudden.

Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.   ~William Feather

6.      Love: Love is about peace of mind because you forgive and let go. 

The greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. - Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lamat

Life is meaningless only if we allow it to be. Each of us has the power to give life meaning, to make our time and our bodies and our words into instruments of love and hope. - Tom Head

7.      Enthusiasm: One good way to develop eagerness and alertness in you is to exercise every day.  When you are fit and healthy you are fully charged and ready to conquer the world.

Life is enthusiasm, zest. ~ Sir Laurence Olivier

8.      Attitude: Attitude determines your altitude in life. When you look at life from a positive perspective, you see opportunities everywhere. When you change your attitude you change your outlook in life. 

Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses.  ~ Alphonse Karr

9.      Motivation: When you get up early every day, you are excited and enthusiastic about what you want to do. You are motivated.

A person is a success if they get up in the morning and gets to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do. - Bob Dylan

10.  Luck: To be lucky you need more than just preparation, you have to be at the right place at the right time actively looking for what you want.  

Be prepared, work hard, and hope for a little luck. Recognize that the harder you work and the better prepared you are, the more luck you might have.
Ed Bradley

11.  Action: You know what to do in order to be successful, but nothing will happen if you don’t act. Just do it and do it now.

Success will never be a big step in the future, success is a small step taken just now.  ~Jonatan MÃ¥rtensson

Life is what you make it.
