But what do you do when you're feeling particularly down and de-motivated? Take a look at some important tips to consider when you are trying to stay positive:

1. First, keep an optimistic view on even the most negative of situations. When you start down the rabbit hole of "maybe I did this wrong," "maybe I made a mistake," "maybe I failed," "maybe I am bad," etc., it's important to remind yourself that you are going to learn from your mistakes and that things are bound to get better if you're at rock bottom right now.

2. Keep a positive environment and surround yourself with things and people that bring you joy. This is important because you are gaining inspiration and are feeding off of the positivity, not letting negative people drag you down.

3. Don't let fear keep you from doing something. Remember, we all have to take chances in life and make mistakes. If you are so afraid to do something that you stop taking chances in life, then your fears will consume you and you'll end up feeling stuck in life. Fear feeds off of self-doubt, and realistically, the worst outcome is never as bad as you are think it'll be.

4. Take things one step at a time. When you try to do things really quickly or one thing on top of the other, you can quickly become overwhelmed and discouraged, so it's important to remind yourself to slow down. Taking time to center yourself and focus on one task at a time will keep your stress to a minimum.

5. Don't make something bigger than what it really is. Something I struggle with blowing things out of proportion. It's so easy to lose perspective when you are stressed and moving at a million miles an hour. Instead of freaking out, stop, breathe, and re-focus on the task at hand. Taking a moment to organize your thoughts and look at things as they are will keep you from panicking in stressful situations.

6. Start each day on a positive note. If you set a good mood in the morning when you first wake up, then you are setting the mood for your whole day. Taking the time to ease into your morning by eating breakfast, reading, talking with your family, enjoying the ride to work and so on, you'll find yourself less rushed, more in control and in a better place to take on the challenges of the day ahead.

So, with these tips in mind, here are some stay positive quotes to inspire you and help you keep a positive outlook on life and on your day.
