In your quiet moments, what do you think about? How far you’ve come, or how far you have to go? Your strengths, or your weaknesses? The best that might happen, or the worst that might come to be? In your quiet moments, pay attention to your thoughts. Because maybe, just maybe, the only thing that needs to shift in order for you to experience more happiness, more love, and more vitality, is your way of thinking.

Read quotes on link above.

When a body of water has ripples and waves you can not see your self in it. But when the water settles then you see your reflection clearly. Your mind is the same way. People do everything they can to avoid stillness of the mind. The stillness makes them feel uncomfortable, so they spend their days keeping their mind ridden with waves and ripples simply so they never have to see themselves in it. But if they did they would see how negative they are, how how they need to think more positive. Here are 60 quotes to get you started on a more positive life

"There isn’t anything noble about being superior to another person. True nobility is in being superior to the person you once were."

This one is powerful, it exposes the ego and shows the way of the soul, to keep evolving into a better being.

I agree. everyone thinks about changing the world, but no one thinks about changing themselves.

Wow, what motivating quotes there are on that link OP! Thank you soo much, this earned you another S+F in an instant

I liked these ones:

If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.

When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Love is not about sex, going on fancy dates, or showing off. It’s about being with a person who makes you happy in a way nobody else can.

Especially like this one

Anyone can come into your life and say how much they love you. It takes someone really special to stay in your life and show how much they love you.

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”

“Love is the absence of judgment.”

“There is a saying in Tibetan, 'Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength.'
No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that's our real disaster.”

“All suffering is caused by ignorance. People inflict pain on others in the selfish pursuit of their own happiness or satisfaction”

“If we think only of ourselves, forget about other people, then our minds occupy very small area. Inside that small area, even tiny problem appears very big. But the moment you develop a sense of concern for others, you realize that, just like ourselves, they also want happiness; they also want satisfaction. When you have this sense of concern, your mind automatically widens. At this point, your own problems, even big problems, will not be so significant. The result? Big increase in peace of mind. So, if you think only of yourself, only your own happiness, the result is actually less happiness. You get more anxiety, more fear.”

All of these are Dalai Lama XIV quotes. I recommend reading The Art of Happiness.
