21 thought-provoking quotes about overthinking


Few things can be more debilitating than the power of our own thoughts. In fact life’s hardest battle is often with the thoughts going on in our own heads.

Negativity infects the brain like weeds taking over in a garden. We overthink, we worry and we talk ourselves into believing that somehow we’re not as good as everyone else.

We think everyone else is sailing through life without a care in the world, whilst we see our own lives as less than satisfactory.

Then we talk ourselves out of trying things because we worry about what other people might think. And we allow our ambitions to be constrained by the limits of how we think we’re perceived by others. Somehow we think it’s reasonable to accept their perception as fact, rather than challenging ourselves to be all we could possibly be.

Our lives would be a lot better if we did more doing and less thinking and pursued our dreams regardless of what others might think.

Here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about overthinking to underline today’s message.

To overcome those negative thoughts you need a mantra and here is a great one you should repeat to yourself frequently.

So repeat after me:-

I’m as good as anyone and better than most!

Repeat this  to yourself daily, in fact several times a day.

And remember this; no one’s life is perfect. Everyone has problems, even wealthy people. No one sails through life without a few challenges on a regular basis.

So focus on what matters to you most and enjoy life as best you can.

As they say in Northern England, “You’ll be a long time dead.” So stop thinking and start doing.

21 thought-provoking quotes about opportunity

Perceived failure in the past can leave us feeling that we’ve blown our chances. That somehow we’re destined for nothing more than a series of unexceptional and relatively low paid jobs.

For instance, this feeling would be typical of someone leaving the education system having little or nothing to show for their years in the classroom in terms of certificates and diplomas.

However always remember this; your future is not defined by your past.

Mistakes made can be always rectified.

A perceived failure is not the end of the world, it’s just an outcome you didn’t want. You can have as many chances to try again as you’re prepared to take.

Never forget, the future is an endless stream of opportunities.

You can choose to take them, or not, it’s down to you and you alone. You can make your life whatever you want it to be, as long as you’re prepared to make changes and work hard.

So focus on what you want and with determination and hard work it really can be yours.

Here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about opportunity. Reflect on them all dear reader and then think about your life and whether it’s all you’d like it to be.

Quotes about opportunity:

  1. If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door. ~Milton Berle
  2. Difficulties mastered are opportunities won. ~Winston Churchill
  3. You create your opportunities by asking for them. ~Shakti Gawain
  4. To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities. ~Bruce Lee
  5. Success is where preparation and opportunity meet. ~Bobby Unser
  6. A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds. ~Francis Bacon
  7. A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. ~Winston Churchill
  8. Most people miss opportunity because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work. ~Thomas A. Edison
  9. Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. ~Henry Ford
  10. Opportunities are like sunrises. If you wait too long, you miss them. ~William Arthur Ward
  11. To succeed, jump as quickly at opportunities as you do at conclusions. ~Benjamin Franklin
  12. Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, ‘What’s in it for me?’ ~Brian Tracy
  13. Don’t wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great. Weak men wait for opportunities; strong men make them. ~Orison Swett Marden
  14. Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming. ~Richard Branson
  15. Many people may say that luck is important, but I think you create your own luck by working hard to ensure you don’t miss opportunities. ~Ivan Glasenberg

  17. My favourite words are possibilities, opportunities and curiosity. I think if you are curious, you create opportunities, and then if you open the doors, you create possibilities. ~Mario Testino
  18. People with a growth mindset believe that they can improve with effort. They outperform those with a fixed mindset, even when they have a lower IQ, because they embrace challenges, treating them as opportunities to learn something new. ~Travis Bradberry
  19. As an entrepreneur, you tend to see the opportunities where others see none. ~Naveen Jain
  20. Life opens up opportunities to you, and you either take them or you stay afraid of taking them. ~Jim Carrey
  21. Sometimes opportunities float right past your nose. Work hard, apply yourself and be ready. When an opportunity comes you can grab it. ~Julie Andrews

15 Quotes by Bob Marley

The late Bob Marley was of course a Jamaican singer-songwriter who became an international musical and cultural icon. For me he is one of the greatest recording artists of all time.

His music blended mostly reggae, ska and rocksteady rhythms into compositions with a very commercial sound.

However beneath the commercial sound were lyrics with real bite. And that in my opinion is why his songs remain popular to this day.

To have risen from humble beginnings to have the international impact Bob Marley had, then you have to be someone very special and he was, certainly in musical terms.

Here are 15 quotes by Bob Marley to remind you of what a talent the world has lost.

  1. You have to be someone. ~Bob Marley
  2. Money can’t buy life. ~Bob Marley

  5. In this bright future you can’t forget your past. ~Bob Marley
  6. When one door is closed, don’t you know another is open? ~Bob Marley
  7. If something can corrupt you, you’re corrupted already. ~Bob Marley
  8. Every man gotta right to decide his own destiny. ~Bob Marley
  9. Don’t gain the world and lose your soul; wisdom is better than silver or gold. ~Bob Marley
  10. Open your eyes and look within. Are you satisfied with the life you’re living? ~Bob Marley
  11. Truth is everybody is going to hurt you: you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for. ~Bob Marley
  12. The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively. ~Bob Marley
  13. Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, don’t give up the fight. ~Bob Marley
  14. Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts; put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live! ~Bob Marley
  15. God sent me on earth. He send me to do something, and nobody can stop me. If God want to stop me, then I stop. Man never can. ~Bob Marley

21 thought-provoking quotes about advice

How do you feel about giving advice?

How do you feel about getting advice?

If you’re anything like me then you’re much more comfortable with giving rather than getting.

When we give advice our intentions are usually good but rarely does it come over that way to the recipient of our advice, unless it resonates with what they had in mind anyway.

So when you’re considering giving someone the benefit of your own personal wisdom, a good question to ask yourself is, “If I were to be on the receiving end of the advice I’m about to give, how would I feel and how would I react?

If you think that your reaction would be negative then perhaps you shouldn’t give that advice at all.

And remember, if you much give advice then tone matters. How you say something is just as important as what you say.

Put yourself in the other person’s shoes and treat then as you’d like to be treated. That way your advice might have a better chance of being well received.

Of course, they’re just my views dear reader. However there are plenty of people who might have different views when it comes to advice.

So here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about advice from the great and the good to offer you a more balanced view on the subject.

Quotes about advice:

  1. The best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it. ~Harry S Truman
