1. “People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.”
- Zig Ziglar
I love this quote and do feel that it is absolutely true. That's why each day on my facebook page, I find and post a new motivational quote. It helps me start the day in the right frame of mind.
Over the past few weeks and months, a few quotes in particular have stood out and given me an extra push or inspiration. So here I've collected 10 of my favourites:
2. "Anyone can do something when they WANT to
do it. Really successful people do things when they
don’t want to do it."
This is actually something I've learnt over the past year through
completing a couple of different workout programmes on DVD. I
committed to sticking to the schedule for several weeks, working
out even on those days when my muscles were so sore I didn't think
I could - and on those days when I just couldn't be bothered.
Learning to push myself when my mind and body said 'no' has
shown me what can be achieved with dedication and commitment.
3. "Whenever you find whole world against you
just turn around and lead the world."
Instead of feeling like you're going against the general flow and
feeling pulled into the mainstream - ignore that pull and follow
YOUR dream and do it YOUR way!
4. "If you hear a voice within you say “you cannot
paint,” then by all means paint and that voice will
-Vincent Van Gogh
Don't let anyone - particularly yourself, tell you that you can't -
5. I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career.
I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been
trusted to take the game winning shot and missed.
I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life.
And that is why I succeed.
It is normal to have failures, mistakes and to do things wrong - but
learn from it and persist and you will get there in the end!
6. If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get
what you’ve always gotten.
I am constantly looking at what I'm doing, reviewing and adjusting.
I haven't reached my goals yet, so I will continue to change and
improve on what I'm doing until I get it right and find my own
7. “Too many people are thinking the grass is
greener on the other side of the fence, when they
ought to just water the grass they are standing on.”
- Amar Dave
I'm a big believer in 'using what you've got' and this includes your
own situation and talents to achieve your greatest desires. Stop
envying others and start Creating your own Success!
8. The person who says it cannot be done should
not interrupt the person who is doing it.
Don't listen to those who put down what you're doing - believe and
persist and you will get there!
9. Build your own dreams, or someone else will
hire you to build theirs.
So true - you have to know what your dreams are and hold onto
that as your motivation!
10. Nothing is impossible, the word itself says,
You said it Audrey!
