It’s a rainy Monday here, and I’m in need of a little motivation. If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you’ll know just how much I love quotations. Many times, it’s that one little line spoken or written by someone else that give me the ah ha! moment that I need to put everything into perspective. And for me, staying motivated would be pretty much impossible without these reminders. So here are ten of my favorite quotes on motivation and being motivated. Enjoy!
“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” ~Jim Rohn
“Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.” ~Wayne Dyer
“Walking your talk is a great way to motivate yourself. No one likes to live a lie. Be honest with yourself, and you will find the motivation to do what you advise others to do.” ~Vince Poscente
“You can motivate by fear. And you can motivate by reward. But both of these methods are only temporary. The only lasting thing is self-motivation.” ~Homer Rice
“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.” ~Mario Andretti
“Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way.” ~Les Brown
“Motivation is like food for the brain. You cannot get enough in one sitting. It needs continual and regular top ups.” ~Peter Davies
“Motivation is when your dreams put on work clothes.” ~Author Unknown
“Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.” ~Les Brown
“When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life” ~Greg Anderson
Have a wonderful, motivation-filled day!
