The most famous six-word story which is also a memoir was written by Ernest Hemingway. His peers bet him that he could not write a short story in just six words. He is quoted as saying that he saw this story as his best work.

“For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

I challenged myself to write 101 six-word stories that can be used as reminders to help people stay positive/upbeat. You can download the PDF at the end of the blog post.

Some of them are spiritual affirmations, others are words to help you build confidence, stay strong and tap into your inner strength. A few of them might even bring a smile to your face and a positive mental attitude into your life.

Sometimes in the middle of all the darkness we forget that seeking the joy in life can do plenty to lift our spirits and give us a different outlook. If I get six words to change your life without having to read a complete self-help book then my work is done!
