New Year's Quotes: 10 Inspirational Mantras To Live By In 2018

New Year
With the New Year rapidly approaching, many people often go by new sayings within all parts of their life. If you need a new mantra to live by in 2018, check out our list of inspirational quotes. Reuters

The New Year is right around the corner and we are sure that there are many people in your life that are talking about living by a certain mantra within the upcoming year. One of the most popular ones is "New Year, New Me." While it seems like everyone seems to adopt that principle but fail to truly live by it, there are a wide array of quotes and phrases that can be implemented in your life.

While some people may confuse New Year's resolutions with new mantras, the two are very different. Resolutions are more of declarations of action you will be making in the new year, whereas mantras  explore how you are going to change your thought process when handling certain situations and issues life throws at you.

In honor of the New Year approaching, we've compiled 10 inspirational sayings that can serve as mantras for 2018!

-"Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth." 
 

-"The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence."
 

-"Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do."
 

-"Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful."
 

-“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”

-“We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.”

-"What you are, and who you are should provide greater clarity about where you have been and where you are headed. Although one distinguishes spiritual from physical nature, the ultimate unification of the two is the consequence of the struggle for internal, external and eternal – peace.”

-“Those who overcome great challenges will be changed, and often in unexpected ways. For our struggles enter our lives as unwelcome guests, but they bring valuable gifts. And once the pain subsides, the gifts remain. These gifts are life's true treasures, bought at great price, but cannot be acquired in any other way.”

-“I have realized that whatever good comes to me, comes from God, whatever bad comes to me, God has allowed it, and I choose to be thankful for both.”

-Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
