10 Inspirational quotes for motivation and self improvement
There is always room for self improvement. We all want to improve ourselves and our life. Here is a collection of 10 inspirational quotes from Woody Allan to cheer you up.
These self improvement quotes will help you change your life. It might take a little coffee or probably a few rounds of beer or any other booze you could get your hands on when it comes to relaxing after a hard day's work. Well, yeah I am guilty about that one as well, unless I am caught dead wearing a lampshade over my head after a few rounds of vodka… half-naked! Okay, bad example and I apologize to everyone reading this after getting nightmares about me in that state of drunken stupor.
Just do not ask how it happened, please.
But what's really interesting is how do people go through the usual part of life when faced with vein-popping stress? I mean, the new age thing like Zen or yoga is one of the good things and it actually works. Is there room for the intellectual side of people who can actually smell the roses-in-a-can while on the move? It kind of had me thinking that there really must be something in this 'mind-over-matter' thing.
Humor is indeed the best medicine there is. I mean anyone can pay good money to listen to a comedian just to make you wet your pants after laughing so hard. Despite of what's been happening and to those who have gone through the ordeal, it's better to just laugh as being positive and being happy are helpful while facing the troubles with a clear mind than anger with a clouded vision.
One of my favorite celebrities of all time has to be Woody Allen.
Now this is one guy who gives you the in-your-face bluntness that he pulls out with gusto, even without even trying. You can talk just about anything with the man, and he's bound to mock the subject and you will end up laughing rather than being upset about it. Self Improvement helps you change your life and the way you think.
Woody Allen has this to say:
1. "Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons." It sounds good to me, I mean the practicality of all things does involve money but it does not have to take an arm and a leg to get it.
2. "I believe there is something out there watching us. Unfortunately, it's the government." 'Nuff said.
3. "There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?" This happens to be one of the classic ones. I mean the issue about life's little problems is not all that bad, until 'he' shows up.
Sure, relationships can get complicated, or does have its complications that probably any author about relationships is bound to discover it soon. We follow what our heart desires, unless you are talking about the heart as in the heart that pumps blood throughout your body.
4. "Love is the answer, but while you are waiting for the answer, sex raises some pretty interesting questions." And if you want more, just keep on asking!
5. "A fast word about oral contraception. I asked a girl to go to bed with me, she said 'no'." It sounds, 'practical', I think.
And when it comes to everyday life, he really knows how to make the best out of every possible scenario, and it does not involve a lawsuit if he strikes a nerve.
6. "Basically my wife was immature. I would be at home in the bath and she would come in and sink my boats." I never had a boat in my bathtub before. Just staring at it while soaking in hot water makes me seasick already.
7. "I am not afraid of death; I just do not want to be there when it happens." If it rains, it pours.
8. "I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose." It could get worse when you are guzzling on beer… or mouthwash and it happened to me once!
9. "If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans." At least he does not smite us with lightning, and I am thankful for that.
And despite of what may happen to all of us in the next ten, twenty, or even thirty years, I guess we all have to see things in a different kind of light and not just perspective. I cannot seem to imagine life without any piece of wisdom that could guide us. Whether we are religious or not, it takes more courage to accept your fears and learn how to deal with them is all that matters when it comes to even just getting along.
And to sum things up, here is the last nugget of wisdom to go by… however, whenever, and wherever we may be.
10. "The talent for being happy is appreciating and liking what you have, instead of what you do not have."
