When we asked our  followers what motto they lived their lives by, you can imagine we were hit with some absolute gems.

Here is the pick of the bunch and some mottos to think about implementing into your own life: 

  • Positive vibes only
  • This too shall pass
  • Never leave for tomorrow what you can do today.
  • Do it right the first time and you will never have to repeat it.
  • Return things to where they belong and you will never have to look for them.
  • Never say ''that will do''.
  • Relax and enjoy!!!
  • It's better to regret something you have done rather than something you haven’t. 
  • Life is a journey, not a destination.
  • Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans. - John Lennon
  • Cogito ergo sum, which roughly translates to "I think, therefore I am".
  • Be a survivor, not a victim.
  • That's a great start, but what other life mottos do you have to add here?
