Using encouragement quotes, quotes on positive thinking and other positive phrases to motivate yourself to take action is a great tool for success. Keeping these good quotes around you, however, is more important than most people would first guess. This article explains the importance of keeping quotes for positive thinking, positive attitude quotes and other good quotes around you, as well as tells you how to embark on making your own postcards and posters to get you going in the right direction.

The one best reason for keeping encouragement quotes, positive thinking quotes and other positive phrases around you constantly is because even when you "forget" to look at them, your subconscious mind still "sees" them. This gives you a constant input of positivity quotes that create a very positive mindset. Why? Because you are subconsciously focusing on the positive, rather than the negative. This is because whatever you see and hear gets registered in your subconscious. So, even if you're "not listening" to the television or radio, your mind is listening intently and filing away everything it hears. So, what you want to do is keep your mind focused on positive phrases and positive sayings, and one of the best ways to do this is to keep encouragement quotes, positivity quotes, hope quotes and positive attitude quotes around you so your subconscious mind "continually absorbs" them, even when you're not looking at them or thinking about them.

When using encouragement quotes to uplift your mood and spirit, it is important to choose ones that give you a physical "zing of good feeling" when you read them. Why? Because this is your emotional intelligence telling you that you will benefit greatly by having that positive motivational quote around you. Positive thinking quotes, positivity quotes and other positive sayings actually carry with them a positive energy. The stronger the "zing" you feel from your encouragement quotes, the stronger impact they can have on your energy.

So, first you want to choose emotionally charged quotes that are just right for you.

Next, you want to find a good postcard template that you can fill in with your own quotes. After you download the template, you can usually put it into a computer program such as Word or Open Office, and then type in your quotes. If you don't know how to use the computer well enough to do that, you can just print out the template and handwrite onto them your own beautiful encouragement quotes, positive thinking quotes and other positive sayings.

One suggestion would be that if you like one particular template, to download it and use it several times in different arrangements such as horizontally or vertically in a collection to showcase a variety of your encouragement quotes, positive phrases, positive attitude quotes and other positivity quotes.

You could also make up the same positive motivation quote postcard (or blow it up to a poster if the resolution is high enough) and cascade it in a set of three posters on your wall because using repetition in this fashion works well.

There are a variety of ways to use encouragement quotes, hope quotes, quotes on positive thinking and other good quotes to keep your energy uplifted and motivated. Once you have found positive sayings that have a strong emotional charge to them, a few good templates where you can put your positive quotes, and get a bit creative about decorating your walls with all of your positive quotes, you're well on your way to becoming more positive on a moment to moment basis - even when you're not thinking about it.
