I have spent over a year putting memes together each week. They are all original quotes by me. All the photos are pictures I have taken unless I sited otherwise. It took a lot of time to put this together but I am excited that I have them all in one spot. I would be grateful if you had a spare 8 minutes to check them all out. Please feel free to let me know which one is your favorite.
Have an amazing day and as always I am so grateful for all of your support and following.
If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree. ~Jim Rohn
Exactly! Thank you Jim. If you don’t like your job, change it. If you don’t like where you live, change it. If you don’t like how you think change it. The only thing that keeps you from a happier life is YOU! Your true friends will support you. Your family will support you, even if they don’t agree. You want a better life you have to be willing to change because whatever you don’t like about your life now is not going to change for you.
Happiness is out there, happiness is everywhere!

“Either you decide to stay in the shallow end
of the pool or you go out in the ocean.”
Basically what Christopher Reeve says is you either take the easy way or you challenge yourself. Challenge yourself in deeper waters, go down a road less traveled, go where no one has gone before, or conquer your fears! Jump into your world and get wet. Live your life the way your heart tells you to do every day! Not only can you travel far out on the ocean but you can go deep down too. Perhaps the depths of the ocean represent your mind. Dive into your own mind and listen. Life is what you make of it and I am going to make mine a positive one.
I was once afraid of the water. Now I love the water, I worked on the ocean, I live by the ocean, I listen to the ocean, and I love the ocean. That shallow end of the pool is my past, and the ocean is my present as I swim toward my future.
Have a great day everyone and may your weekend be full of positive adventures.
Hello fellow followers. Just wanted to let you know that I will not be posting next week. We all need time for rest and reflection.

I am so grateful to have all of you who do follow me and I can’t wait for this community to grow in the future. Until next time stay UP! Love all of you. I encourage you to take a look around at previous posts or even use the search feature on my blog to find something you may be interested in.
All new Variety Friday!
I wrote about this once before but this has to be my most favorite quote so far on my journey of change: “Anything worth doing was worth doing poorly-until I can learn to do it well.” – Zig Ziglar.
I try so hard to keep my post short and sweet but sometimes I still amaze myself how much I could say and still have to say about Ultra Positivism. This blog is a living organism of my life and I share bits and pieces of it indirectly all the time in my posts about positivism. There is no GPS on my life, but you better be certain I will continue to leave a trail for those to follow and teach me new things. I started this blog out of heart break and just look at where I have come from that moment. I was not a writer, there was a day I was anything but positive, there was a day were life was not worth living. UP to today I built a never give up attitude, and I am surrounding it with Ultra Positivism from around the globe. I have all of you to be grateful for that. I may have uninspiring posts sometimes, my grammar may flounder in my rushed attempts to post, I may miss a week of posting here and there, I may fall to my knees in tears, but IT IS ALL WORTH IT. I may not know where I am going or where I may end up but I know for a fact it all adds to my tale of life and slowly I will pick up inspired and inspiring people along the way. I don’t know when I will become a motivational speaker or what I will even say but if just one day I can stand in front of hundreds or more, deliver life’s message and change the lives of each one I will have learned to do it well.
I enjoy Famous Quote Friday but it is time for change. There is more out there, more then I have time to share. I don’t want to leave Fridays for just quotes. I will start to include video clips, music, pictures, other blogs, or Facebook pages that inspire me. I start today with a song.
This song I have had for years and only in the last couple days did I search for the meaning of the title. I have also lost count of how many times I have listened to this song and how many times it continues to inspire me.
“Shibumi” by Amethystium
Listen to it. Give your full attention to it and nothing else. While you listen think about your life. This song is to amazing for words to describe but I did find an Urban Dictionary definition to the word “Shibumi”
A term from the Edo period in Japan refering to places, persons, or things of effortless perfection. Anything that is Shibumi is noble and fulfilling in a manner that is not shaped exclusively by analytical thought. Simply put, a state of great refinement underlying commonplace appearances.
If I had to pick an important post this one is it. This is the one I want EVERYONE to share. For the sake of you, others and myself, help me find great things in life by helping me spread my message of Positivism everywhere. I cannot pay you I cannot force you but each and every one of you I owe a debt of gratitude for helping me share this blog and this journey with the world. I want to make a name for myself and with every post and every share I can come closer to my dream.
PLEASE SHARE this post with those that you know. Those that see my blog for the first time share it with those you know as well. There are great things to come with https://upwithmarc.com/ and I look forward to inspire many and be inspired in return by each and every one of you. You can never achieve a great goal in life on your own and If there was a way I can help you I will.
Share it, link it, copy and past it. Whatever you have to do. PLEASE help me spread the word.
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.
I discovered Les Brown only a few weeks ago. He encompasses who I want to be. He talks about goals, change, greatness and positivism. Goals are my life and big changes have become part of my life as well. Les Brown is a motivational speaker inspiring people to follow their dreams. His famous phrase is “it’s possible.” He is correct, for all of us it is possible. Go for everything you want in life, shoot for the moon. You are going to discover so much inspiration on your journey and even if you don’t get there you still know you are great and you earned every part of your life. You will still land among the stars.
You don’t hear about when the tears drop from my face. You don’t hear about the negativity I fight with to stay positive. You don’t hear about many of the challenges I face through change. Every bit of it exists in my life. I am human I make mistake, I fail, I fall, but in the end of the challenges I stand in victory, be it big or small, because I am shooting for the moon. With my never give up attitude and my will to always do my best, I always learn ways to be more positive about my life and the lives of others around me. Love your life, love your journey and love the destinations you reach for.
If you have 4:30 minutes you really should watch this sample of Les Brown. Have a great weekend, I love all of you.
Sometimes being yourself does not seem easy but it is way easier in the long run.

“I don’t care how much power, brilliance or energy you have, if you don’t harness it and focus it on a specific target, and hold it there you’re never going to accomplish as much as your ability warrants.”
– Zig Ziglar
I think by the end of my life I will have talked about every quotable phrase Zig Ziglar has ever had. I love this guy just as much as I love goals. You can accomplish anything you want in life but if you don’t stay focused and go for it with all you have, you will never get there. If you are not a person with goals you need to get some. You have dreams right? Turn those dreams into goals. How are you going to achieve your dreams? What goals will you need to get there? Start out small then you can start to feel that positive energy inside of you when you reach a goal. Then make bigger goals and see how you feel. Now harness that energy when you start aiming for your biggest goals! As hard as it is to get there and as hard as you worked toward it, when you stand in the ora of your accomplishments you will then see the full potential of your life. So start making goals for yourself and start living you life.
