Motivational Quotes

by Taylor Pebley October 24th, 2012 More

Have you ever gotten really excited about a goal or project, such as speaking a new language, just to realize a few weeks or even only a few days later that your excitement and motivation have failed? I have. It’s always such a bummer…and it’s frustrating. We’re ambitious people! We want to be successful and progressive! We should be able to accomplish these extremely reachable goals! Well, one of the best ways I’ve found to overcome this tendency to burn out like a shooting star is to frequently read/say motivational quotes and then do something right away to implement those quotes.

There are thousands of motivational quotes out there. My suggestion is to start with a simple search on Google. I have collected a few over the years, and here are some of my favorites:

  • “I will do today what others will not do, so tomorrow I can do what others cannot do.” – Randy Gage
  • “Nothing is withheld from us what we have conceived to do.” – Russell Kirsch, invented the first computer
  • “Just do it.” – Popularized by Nike
  • “The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.” – William Arthur Ward
  • “Build upon strengths, and weaknesses will gradually take care of themselves.” – Joyce C. Lock
  • “Above all, challenge yourself. You may well surprise yourself at what strengths you have, what you can accomplish.” – Cecile Springer
  • “You can have anything you want if you are willing to give up the belief that you can’t have it.” – Robert Anthony
  • “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” – George Eliot
  • “Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.” – Henry Ford
  • “Be a first rate version of yourself, not a second rate version of someone else.” – Judy Garland
  • “There is no man living that can not do more than he thinks he can.” – Henry Ford

I hope you’ve found one or more of these to add to your collection. Regardless of what goal you are working on or weakness you are trying to overcome, a positive attitude can make all the difference. Use motivational quotes to help you succeed. Comment and share your own favorite quotes!

Self Motivation Quotes

motivation

It’s not easy to be self-motivated. We realize that learning a language is not an easy task. It takes self-motivation and hard work. In order to help you when you may not feel very motivated, I have compiled a list of some of my favorite self-motivation quotes. Many of the quotes come from the community of Mindbloom.

  •  “One learns the most about writing once their pen is moving.”
  • “You can’t fly if you never jump!”
  • “Your breakthroughs will come when you do what you’ve been afraid to do.”
  • “The principle is competing against yourself. It’s about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before.” -Steve Young
  • “If you find yourself getting nervous, stop and relax for three full breaths. Then take one small step, then another. That is how people get to the top of Everest.” -Martha Beck
  • “Today I do what others will not, so tomorrow I do what others cannot.” -Jerry Rice
  • “When faced with mountain-like obstacles, I envision myself already at the top.”
  • “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” -Maria Robinson
  • “Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.” -Lou Holtz
  • “If I can’t make it through one door, I’ll go through another door – or I’ll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.” Rabindranath Tagore
  • “Celebrate every small victory!”
  • “No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everybody on the couch.”
  • “Confidence comes not from always being right, but from not fearing to be wrong.” -Peter T. Mcintyre
  • “I am not my challenges. I am not my illness. I am stronger than my mind. I am stronger than my pain.”

I hope that one of those quotes took you from la-la land in your mind to putting your mind to work. What is your favorite quote? Please comment on this post below. I would love to hear your thoughts.
