18 Motivational Quotes that will Inspire You

It’s that time of the month in January when people begin to slack or give up on their resolutions. Whether you have made personal and/or professional resolutions this year, now is the time to create and retain lasting habits that serve your end goals. In this blog, I’m showcasing a roundup of quotes from renown influencers and leaders that will hopefully help you create those daily habits, and if you’ve made resolutions, help you stick to them. Remember, setbacks and problems are part of the journey, but getting back on your feet and staying determined will define and demonstrate the level of success you wish to achieve. Here’s a mid-January pick-me-up just for you:

Neil Armstrong:
“I believe every human has a finite number of heartbeats. I don’t intend to waste any of mine.”

Charles Darwin:
“It is not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the most responsive to change.”

Walt Disney:
“If you can dream it, you can do it.”

Thomas Edison:
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”

Tim Ferriss:
“The stars will never align, and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn’t conspire against you, but it doesn’t go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. ‘Someday’ is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If it’s important to you and you want to do it ‘eventually,’ just do it and correct course along the way.”

Thomas Jefferson:
“I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.”

Helen Keller:
“Keep your face to the sunshine and you can never see the shadow.”

Charles Kettering:
“Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.:
“If you can’t fly then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.”

Dalai Lama:
“The purpose of our lives is to be happy.”

Marissa Mayer:
“If you can push through that feeling of being scared, that feeling of taking a risk, really amazing things can happen.”

Barack Obama:
“The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.”

Tony Robbins:
“People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.”

Jim Rohn:
“If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.”

Eleanor Roosevelt:
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Socrates:
“The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new.”

Oprah Winfrey:
“Step out of the history that is holding you back. Step into the new story you are willing to create.”

Kate Winslet:
“Life is short, and it is here to be lived.”
