Do you ever just need that extra lift in the morning that coffee just won’t do? Ever feel like you’ve been spinning your wheels forever but not getting anywhere? Maybe you just don’t have the motivation? Maybe you’re just having an off week. I have those days now and again and I’m not ashamed to admit that sometimes it takes a lot more than my alarm clock to get me out of bed. So here are a few quotes that have motivated me throughout my life. Maybe it’s just what you need today.
“If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.” H.G Wells
It’s important for you to try again if you fail. Don’t let your failures define you, learn from them and prevail the next time.
“Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.” – Theodore Roosevelt
You can achieve anything you put your mind to. I think it’s just important to keep yourself grounded when it comes to your goals. You might end up being very successful but you didn’t do it alone. Appreciate those who helped you and make sure not to get lost in the clouds.
“Security is mostly a superstation. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” – Helen Keller
People today live to be over 90, but how many of them have really lived? Life isn’t supposed to be easy and you are allowed to take risks. It’s what makes every day interesting and new. Or you’ll end up getting stuck in a routine and never living to your full potential.
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” – Peter Drucker
You are the only one who can change your life. If you aren’t happy, it’s your responsibility to fix that. Everyone has a future but it’s something you have to work toward. Some days it may seem out of your reach but that just means you have to an opportunity to explore new ways of doing things.
“Not all those who wander are lost.” – J. R. R. Tolkien
This quote is the most important one to me. Humans are flawed and they make mistakes. It’s alright to fail from time to time because not everything in life goes as planned. Be yourself, be unique, because you are, and enjoy the adventure!
