What Is Your Personal Motto?

I like this giant sundial that anchors a downtown shopping & entertainment plaza in St. Petersburg, Florida – “The Sunshine City”.

Around the base are the words, “Use well these few but ever fleeting hours” which strikes me as pretty good advice, and maybe a good personal motto.

Recently, someone asked about ‘personal mottos’ in a forum post online and these were the ones that people responded the most to ….

◦ “Choose to be happy”

◦ “Live everyday like it may be your last, but always plan for tomorrow”

◦ “Always leave a place better than you found it”

◦ “Life is good, even when it ain’t”

◦ “While some dream of accomplishment others stay awake and work hard at it.”

◦ “Laughter is the best medicine”

◦ “Small sacrifices = big rewards”

◦ “Have fun. Be safe. Don’t get caught.”

◦ “Be the change you want to be in the world”

◦ “A life lived in fear is not a life well lived.”

◦ “Treat others how you want to be treated”

◦ “Never act your age”

◦ “Don’t let the world change your smile let your smile change the world”

◦ “What one thinks about, comes about”

◦ “Live the life you love, love the life you live”

◦ “If you are the smartest person in the room, find a better room”

◦ “People don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan”

◦ “Be the reason someone smiles today”

What are some of your personal mottos? What phrases inspire you to make the most of your ‘fleeting hours’?
