Do you ever have days when nothing seems to go right? From the moment you step out of bed, it feels like the world is conspiring against you. You sleep through your alarm, you forget your wallet, you miss an important deadline and your boss is not impressed.

If you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, don’t sweat it. Sometimes, all you really need is a little self care to set the day back on the right track.

This collection of 12 good day quotes will help you put things in perspective—and may just deliver the inspiration you need to go out and make this day your own.

Where Does True Inspiration Come From?


The words of others have a way of lifting our spirits during difficult moments. Sometimes you need that outside perspective to help shake off the funk.

These good morning quotes are a fantastic way to bring more joy and inspiration into your day, but if you crave a shift in perspective that’s more tangible and permanent, you’ll need to be ready to do the work.

What kind of work? Well, developing new strategies to conquer the obstacles in your way is a good place to start. In fact, one of the best ways you can improve your day-to-day is in learning how to learn.

Jim Kwik, Author of Mindvalley’s Superbrain Program, explains, “All behavior is belief driven. We need to understand how our minds work so we can work our minds better. If knowledge is power, learning is your superpower.”

When we dedicate time to improving ourselves, everything around us improves right along with us.
