A daily motto for personal development?


The following questions help to benefit from the daily motto:

  • What does the quote trigger on you?
  • Under what circumstances do you agree with the statement and when not?
  • What is the meaning of the statement in your life?
  • How can the motto of the day enrich your life?
  • In what context could the statement be useful?
  • Where do you want to remember it like?


I do not quite agree with some quotes. Then there is often something special to learn.


  • What do you specifically reject in the statement?
  • Do you generally consider the statement not helpful or only inappropriate for you personally?
  • Which aspect is worth taking a closer look at?
