Self Help Prompts

Self help prompts are words, quotes and repeated sentences that inspire. A few words about life, writing, can inspire positive achievements.

Sometimes, there will be despair, but encouraging words will give better out-looks.

The words, believe in yourself, for example, are self help prompts.

When life is difficult, stop. Take a deep breath. Write a self help prompt, or read the one you've already written. The self help prompt should apply to your situation.

Think about the self help prompt, I'll work through it one step at a time. The words inspires.

Tape it to your mirror, bed or desk. Sit it in/on a place you frequent.

Use words that comfort you. Perhaps, "The Lord's Prayer?" Or, tomorrow, I'll be refreshed and ready to go.

Quotes inspire too. Look at the following.

Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing. Benjamin Franklin

A man can't ride your back unless it's bent. Martin Luther King, Jr.

A good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers. Plato

Benjamin Franklin's quote is a reminder to keep writing through the bad and good times. There will come a time, maybe, someone will write about you.

How do you see the quote?

Martin Luther King's quote makes sense. Stand-up for your belief.

What's your thoughts?

Plato's quote means you have to know the facts of a situation before making a decision, not the gossip of others.

Your opinion?

Repeated sentences like a few from my childhood inspires.

Look at the glass half full. I see it as don't be negative. You?

You can do it. They are words of encouragement to keep moving forward. What do you think?

Win or lose. You'll win some and lose win. Either way, deal with the events and move on. Your thoughts?

Now, think back to a time in your life when self help prompts were spoken. Of course, you didn't realize it at the time.

Finally, self help prompts inspire. Lay them out and use them. Don't forget to share.

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
