Motivation doesn’t usually come when we need it most.
Thinking of starting a blog? You end up with writers block. Have to draft a proposal that needs to be submitted tomorrow? Have fun staying late at work.
Looking at images with a nice background does little to inspire or motivate us. If it were that easy, anyone could photograph their garden for a daily dose of inspiration.
However, words speak to us. There’s a reason why quotes inspire us. They speak to our soul. They speak to our conscience. The best part is, it only takes a few of the right words!
Let’s take a look at some of the more inspirational quotes about success:
“Don’t Let Yesterday Take Up too Much of Today.” Will Rogers
What makes this quote stand out is how positive and simple it is. We let our past define us. We let our mistakes take over our lives. This is one of the biggest mistakes.
When you let yesterday define your today, you’re blocking your own path to success. Don’t let anyone—even if it’s that inner voice—tell you what you’ve done is who you are today.
We learn from our mistakes, and that’s how we grow into incredible beings. That doesn’t mean you should forget your past, but it does mean you shouldn’t let it hamper growth.
“Knowing Is Not Enough; We Must Apply. Wishing Is Not Enough; We Must Do.” – Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
As we journey through life, we learn a lot of things and meet so many people. However, the knowledge we gain—do we apply it?
It’s not enough to know something if you’re not going to apply it. It’s not enough to wish for success unless we work hard and persevere. Through perseverance, grit and dedication, we can conquer obstacles and climb the ladder of success.
“Whether You Think You Can or Think You Can’t, You’re Right.” – Henry Ford
What you believe makes all the difference. If you believe you are not good enough for the job, your performance will complement your thinking.
If you think you are the right person for the job then you can go to great lengths, travel new distances and succeed in building a life you want to live.
Everything depends on our intentions and how we perceive things.
