People Share Their Most Ridiculous Inspirational Quotes That Help Them Through The Day

Sometimes we need a breath and to repeat the one thing we know that will get us through today.

Whatever it takes for us to survive life is good enough for us. But sometimes we run a little low on our inspiration fuel, so Redditor appninza took to stockpiling answers by asking:

What is your life motto?

Here are some of the motivating answers.

Not "And"

"Show, don't tell"

You can't tell people you're intelligent or nice or whatever. Your actions should show it and other people would figure it out on their own.

Short and Sweet

'Ah f-ck it'

Simple Yet Effective

"Don't be an idiot" changed my life

Collected Mottos

Stressing won't change the outcome.

Could Be Worse

At least I'm not on fire.

Play It Cool Boy

Keep cool, never freeze - Mayonnaise Jar

A Slight Variation

Always aim for the stars. Even if you fail, you die suffocating in the vacuum of space and won't remember any of this sh-t.

Moving Up

If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got. - Henry Ford

Being Kinder To Yourself

"You can get a good view halfway up the mountain."

Jokes On Jokes

Nothing, what's a motto with you.

Learning To Let Go

Let go or be dragged.

Be Selfless

Live simply, so that others may simply live.

All The Wasted Time

Not my quote, but still very true:

"Time you enjoy wasting, is not wasted time"

What, Me Worry?

"If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it's not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever."

All Flawed

As a christian, "Don't judge others just because they sin differently than you." But honestly, religious or not, its a pretty good life motto I feel...

Optimism

Always try to keep positive.

Bitter Is A Poison Taste

Never allow yourself to become bitter. Never hold a grudge. Holding a grudge only perpetuates and magnifies the perceived injustice.

Path Of Least Resistance

Don't care about the opinion of someone you don't care about.

So many people get stressed and upset at comments made by people who want to intentionally upset them and get into their heads to just don't let them occupy any space in that brain of yours.

Always Fakin' It

Fake it 'till you make it

Keep Hopeful

Expect the worst but hope for the best

Don't Sweat The Petty Things, Don't Pet The Sweaty Things

Don't sweat stuff that isn't worth getting angry over.

If getting angry won't solve the problem faster or get you to a mindset to problem solve, then it's not worth getting angry over.

Nothing Really Matters

"Does it really matter?"

I like a chronologically based approach to life. When assessing whether or not it's worth caring about/getting angry about something, ask yourself a series of simple questions:

  • Will this matter in 5 minutes?
  • Will this matter in 5 days?
  • Will this matter in 5 years?
  • It's pretty easy to sort things that way.

    Onward, Upward

    Always forward. The only time you are allowed to dwell on the past is when you are making steps to better your future.

    Ask The Wizard

    Courage is not the absence of fear, but the mastery of it....... Mark Twain

    How To Become Better

    "You either win or you learn"

    Yes, you can and will lose in your life. However each time is a learning point. Once I made this mental shift in perspective I began excelling in sports, study and life.

    When you're a kid most adults will tell you one thing or another is "cool" and "fun." Odds are you're too young to form any kind of opinion on the matter one way or another. You're a kid, right? You don't know what you're eating for breakfast. However, when you get older and form that larger worldview, you realize that yeah, maybe that one time when you were a kid actually wasn't fun.

    These are those stories.
