40 quotes to quiet your mind

Do you ever wish you could just still your mind? 

Do you think you could be happier if you inner talk just slowed down a bit? 

Do your thoughts sap energy from your happiness and life by creating unwanted negativity? 

I think we could all answer "YES" to these questions and I think we could all benefit from this great quotes via Marc Chernoff…

Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart.

You know how you always turn down the volume on the radio when you need to think clearly about something complicated or confusing?

The same is true for your life in general.  The noise you need to cut out to concentrate?  That’s the noise in your head – the busy, worried thoughts screaming over your better judgment.

Turning down the radio refocuses your mind and offers you clarity when you need it most.  You don’t really think about how or why this makes such a huge difference, you just know that it does.

Now it’s time to apply this same strategy to all the other noise in your life, starting with the noise in your head.  And although it’s not quite as easy as spinning the radio’s volume dial, the good news is you can quiet your mind and train it to think more rationally simply by reminding yourself to do so every day.  Some people call them affirmations, or mantras, or convictions, but in any case these daily reminders keep you on track by keeping peaceful, productive thoughts at the top of your mind, even when life gets noisy.

Here are 40 quotes gathered from our blog archive that can be used as reminders to help tweak your thoughts and quiet your anxious mind:

  1. Everything is created twice, first in the mind and then in reality.  So pay close attention to the thoughts you choose.  They have a way of becoming real.

  2. There is absolutely nothing about your present circumstances that prevents you from making progress, one step at a time.

  3. Worry, and you get what you worry about.  Work, and you get what you work for.  It’s often just that simple.

  4. You can’t let one bad moment spoil a bunch of good ones.  Don’t let the silly little dramas of each day get you down.

  5. Happiness is allowing yourself to be perfectly OK with ‘what is,’ rather than wishing for and worrying about ‘what is not.’  ‘What is’ is what’s supposed to be, or it would not be.  The rest is just you, arguing with life.

  6. Frustration and stress come from the way you react, not the way things are.  Adjust your attitude today, and the frustration and stress is gone.

  7. Be positive and smile right now, not because everything is good, but because you can see the good side of everything.

  8. Lies only exist if you believe in them.  The truth shall indeed set you free in the end.  Whenever negativity creeps into your mind, ask yourself:  Is it true?  Can I be 100% certain that it’s true?  (And then let the lies GO!)

  9. No book is just one chapter.  No chapter tells the whole story.  No mistake defines who we are.  Keep turning the pages that need to be turned.

  10. Remember, letting go isn’t about having the courage to release the past; it’s about having the wisdom and strength to embrace the present…
