Monday is a day of beginnings and new starts. It’s a day where the week is before you and possibilities are endless. Begin the week with momentum and you’ll look back with great satisfaction on all you achieved.

On the other hand, Monday can also be stressful. It’s back to work time. You may be facing some issues or a negative work environment. It’s the highest day of the week for heart attacks.

So let’s make this Monday one of the good ones. One where you demonstrate the power of a positive attitude and rocket toward your goals.

We rounded up a few happy Monday quotes for you to remember as you’re slaying your dreams. Read ’em, print them—hey, maybe even hang them on your office wall or bathroom mirror was daily inspo. You got this!
