What I love about the beginning of the year is a fresh new start. I’ve taken on a handful of major projects recently, with each requiring a lot of my time and focus. Of course, accomplishing your goals and dreams does not come without the added amount of stress and dedication, so as I’ve been going along I have been collecting quotes to help keep me motivated. I like to keep my workspace positive, and as you can see Bain has taken one of my favorite notebooks I’ve been writing in.
There may be some days where it can be hard to stay focused, and you may question whether the goals you are striving for are worth the stress, effort, and time. Maybe your dream involves something that no one has ever done before? Or maybe there is a handful of people who think your plan is completely ridiculous! Don’t let the negative people get you down; success never comes to those who give in. So today, I wanted to share some of the quotes I’ve saved from my collection to help inspire those striving for excellence:
1.) – “If you want to fly, you have to give up the stuff that weight you down.”
2.) – “You have to be odd to be number one.” – Dr. Seuss
3.) – “He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”
4.) – “She has been through hell, so believe me when I say, fear her when she looks into a fire and smiles.” – E. Corona
5.) – “Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments in your life. Keep the faith, it will all be worth it in the end.”
6.) – “Embrace uncertainty. Some of the most beautiful chapters in our lives won’t have a title until much later.” – Bob Goff
7.) – “You either get bitter or you get better. It’s that simple. You either take what has been dealt to you and allow it to make you a better person, or you will allow it to tear you down. The choice does not belong to fate, it belongs to you.” – Josh Shipp
8.) – “If you feel like you don’t fit into this world, it’s because you are here to create a new one.”
9.) – “Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” – Roald Dahl
10.) – “Be the person your dog thinks you are.”
A personal quote of my own that I’ve always carried with me has been,”The best encouragement is from those who don’t believe in you.” Nothing gets me more fired up than accomplishing goals not only for myself, but being able to show others that with positivity and determination you can make that dream become a reality. It’s also nice to have a cheer squad behind you. Bain, my family, and friends are always there to check in to see how things are going and to help motivate me.
As mentioned in this post, I’ve been collecting things that inspire me, whether they are quotes, photos, success stories, I know that I can always look back and recharge on these when I’m feeling overwhelmed with life and work. I hope this post has helped those needing some motivation. We would also like to hear your favorite quotes that inspire you too! Continue reaching for you goals and keep the fire burning!
