We in the Self-Improvement community have been lurking around the idea of positivity, as it's something that we often can't muster on our own.
I was talking with my mom the other day and she reminded me of a great example of positivity: Elle Woods.
Legally Blonde is a movie that empowered a generation of people. It showcases a person who is perceived negatively turns it into a positive.
We can all learn a great deal from Elle. Here are 5 quotes that'll inspire your positivity. :)
"I'd pick the dangerous one, 'cause I'm not afraid of a challenge."
Elle shows her entire class what's up when she gets confused by a question. Nobody can make Elle look stupid, even though everyone thinks she is. She is fearless, and fearlessness begets positivity! So continue to stick up for yourself and the positive feelings will happen.
"First impressions are not always correct."
Part of being positive is letting things go. Putting a ton of pressure on yourself to be perfect or completely together all the time leads to negativity and perfectionism. That makes you think negatively. By leaving your first impression at the door you can really be yourself. It's not about being perfect, it's about being real.
"Exercise makes endorphins, and endorphins make you happy...and happy people just don't shoot their husbands...they just don't!"
Well, out of context this might not be so positive, but really, if you want to have a mood boost, do some exercising. I'm going to today! It makes things feel better, no matter how hard it is to get going, it's much better once you're done!
"I'll show you how valuable Elle Woods can be!"
Yes! You go Elle! We all should start with an affirmation: we can do it. We've got this! No matter what it is, you can figure it out if you think you can. By switching our thoughts around from negative to positive, we'll be that much closer to believing in ourselves.
You can do it! If you need further inspiration make sure to watch Legally Blonde...it'll boost your mood and make you realize that anything is possible. :)
