1- “I’m working my happiness like a full-time job.” – Gabrielle Bernstein
There is no greater journey than the journey to inner peace and happiness. Make your happiness your biggest priority in life, and allow yourself to grow into the best version of YOU.
2- “We sense love, but we don’t believe in it. We save our faith for fear. But ultimately, there is a quiet voice in each of us that longs for something better.” ― Gabrielle Bernstein
Within each moment we have the opportunity to choose where we place our faith. It isn’t always easy to have faith in love, and in the good in the world around us, especially when we have faced challenges and experienced pain. What would your life look like if you placed as much faith into love as you do to your fears?
3- “When we fulfil our function, which is to truly love ourselves and share love with others, then true happiness sets in.” ― Gabrielle Bernstein
Purpose is the lifeblood of the spirit. When we align with our true worth and expand that into our calling, we create deep internal happiness that cannot be shaken.
4- “The universe is always working on our behalf but not always working on our time.” – Gabrielle Bernstein
Ah, we can be so impatient, can’t we? We want everything yesterday. The sooner we understand that Universe has its own rhythm, the better. We just need to learn to trust divine timing while continuing to expand into our biggest, best selves.
5- “Don’t dance around the perimeter of the person you want to be. Dive deeply and fully into it.” – Gabrielle Bernstein
You only have one chance to expand into your greatest expression in this body, with this mind, at this time! Don’t waste or squander this life by playing small. Dive in!
6- “True abundance isn’t based on our net worth, it’s based on our self-worth.” – Gabrielle Bernstein
You attract what you believe you deserve. All the hard work in the world won’t compensate for crappy self-worth and low self-esteem. Love yourself.
7- “If my environment dictates my mood, then my life will feel like a roller coaster. The way to steady ground is through my breath.” – Gabrielle Bernstein
As we learn to move away from reactivity and instead choose to become conscious creators within each moment of life, the more our personal power shows up.
8- “I can think my way out of fear.” – Gabrielle Bernstein
Fear does not own you unless you let it! When confronted with negative thoughts, we always have the option to choose differently. Replace fear with a more empowering belief that makes you feel good!
9- “Real change requires a desire to change.” – Gabrielle Bernstein
There is only one person who can change your life and that is YOU. Real change must come from a place of complete determination and decisiveness.
10- “Worry is a prayer to chaos.” – Gabrielle Bernstein
Spending time worrying about what is wrong, or what could go wrong is a humongous waste of energy! Instead of worrying, spend your time focusing on what is good in your life, be grateful. There are many who would kill to live the life you live.
