Ralph Waldo Emerson is not only one of the great wordsmiths of all time and one of America’s greatest voices, his words are filled with practical, applicable wisdom.
Here are five of my favorite to start your day.
- You become what you think about all day long.
- Most of the shadows in this life are caused by standing in one’s own sunshine.
- The only person you are destined to be is the person you decide to be.
- Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.
- Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of your life.

Stay inspired, my friends!
EXTRAORDINARY minds find wisdom wherever it grows. Ordinary minds dismiss wisdom because of WHO said it.
If you love this original #rayquote, you’ll find hundreds more in my eBook, The Power to Be You, now available on Amazon.
Day after day, our popular culture, our own conditioning, and the people around us pepper our minds with disempowering ideas and mindsets. Our minds are vacuums. If we don’t fill them with thoughts our choosing, someone else will. Yeah. That’s one of the daily thoughts.
The Power to Be You was my first eBook. Originally written in 2009 and updated in 2017, it’s packed with more than 400 original quotes, inspirations, affirmations, and paradigm-shifting ideas.
That’s a lot of mind-shifting for less than a Starbucks coffee.
