Stess Management Tips

“The secret of success is constancy of purpose.”
Benjamin Disraeli

“I don’t do anything that’s bad for me, I don’t like to be made nervous or angry. Anytime you get upset it tears down your nervous system.”
Mae West

“Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force, that thoughts rule the world.”

“I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do, provided he keeps doing them until he gets a record of successful experiences behind him.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

“First, don’t go to bed angry, this may take some work, but it is worth it…Anger is heavy. It is a big deal to carry. If you have it on your shoulders when you go to sleep, it will still be there when you wake up. When you let your anger go, you lighten up. The same is true for every painful emotion- regret, guilt, shame, jealousy, and all the rest of them. Let them go before you sleep.”
Gary Zukav

“The mind of man is capable of anything - because everything is in it, all the past as well as the future.”
Joseph Conrad

“Do all the good you can,
By the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as you can.”
John Wesley

“There is no failure except in no longer trying.”
Elbert Hubbard

“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”
Will Rogers

Theodore Roosevelt

“Work is love made visible.”
Kahil Gibran

“Fill your minds with those things that are good and deserve praise: things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely and honorable.”
Saint Paul’s letter to the Philippians

“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”
Oscar Wilde

“He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.”

“Hope consists of two components: your determination to meet goals and your ability to create plans to meet them. In several studies…hope is linked to successful outcomes in various domains of life, such as work and school performance, and also in health.”
Christopher Peterson, PhD.

“The only medicine for suffering, crime, and all of the other woes of mankind, is wisdom.”
Thomas Henry Huxley

“How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.”
Coco Chanel

Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Let me recognize the problem so it can be solved.”
A Course in Miracles

“The world’s distorted concept is that you have to get other people’s love before you can feel love within. The law of love is different from the world’s law. The law of love is that you are love, and that as you give love to others you teach yourself what you are.”
Gerald Jampolsky, MD

“It is extremely rare to find a successful person that whines, complains, and frets about her circumstances. This is despite the fact that she may have overcome great obstacles to achieve her level of success. The real question is: What came first-the attitude or the success? The answer in virtually all cases is that the winning, positive attitude came first, followed by a lifetime of abundance.”
Richard Carlson, PhD.

“Relief from fear, guilt, anger, depression or doubt signals movement towards recovery. Relief means a lifted spirit, a happier, healthier, more positive outlook and attitude. An increase in positive feelings such as fun, joy, humor, and happiness and a decrease in negative feelings indicate that a wave of recovery has begun.”
James Loehr, Ed.D.

“Almost always people fail not because they lack the possibility of inner strength, but because they just don’t give it all they got. They hold back a little bit.”
Dr. Norman Vincent Peale

“Feelings are our most helpful link to our relationship with ourselves, others, and the world around us, and they are an indication of what’s working or not working within our lives. Shutting them off only leads to more complex problems and physical illness. What you can feel, you can heal.”
Louise Hay

“Possibilitizing means imagining, visualizing, praying, multiplying, overcoming, anticipating, toughening, maneuvering, rebounding, and overpowering the problem.”
Dr. Robert Schuller

“Think about your favorite activity for a moment. When you are really enjoying something you like, how do you feel? As you listen to your favorite music, with full attention, other thoughts and desires fade away. You are simply in the moment. This is contentment-peace.”
Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.
