Do you ever have a moment where you need a little extra motivation? When your day seems to be a little more challenging? And your obstacles seem a little more daunting?
I know I have.
What has always helped me is having a few quick go-to quotes that give me the boost I need. These are little reminders that life can be hard, but I have worked harder. The same goes for you.
While you may think that life has made you weak, it has actually made you strong.
With that in mind, I want to share a few of my favorite sayings that have continued to give me the encouragement to continue in hopes that they will provide you with the same positive reinforcement.
- Your life should never be an apology.
Life is a gift. Each and everyday is a new opportunity to dream big and achieve even bigger. Don’t live it as if it is a mistake that you are here. You are here for a reason, and even though that reason may not always be clear, it will become clear if you live your life as fully as you can. With no regrets, with no apologies.
- The cycle of life is built on adversity.
Life is a cycle of adversity and challenges. We are either going into it, coming out of it, or starting it over again. Always be ready for adversity because it is the preparation for greatness.
- You become who you surround yourself with.
Look at your circle. Dissect your community. Who is in your life? Are they people who work hard and succeed? Are they asking the right questions? Are they pushing you to be your best? If not, it is time to find new surroundings that will help you get to where you want to go.
- You get to choose which voice you will listen to.
Taking into consideration the last quote, you can listen to people who will bring you down or those who will lift you up. You can listen to the voice in your head that says “You can’t do this.” Or the one who says “You can do this.” Which one will you listen to today?
- Just ask others.
We often forget that we can ask for help and guidance. Learning from people who are living the life you want for yourself is one of the best ways to remind yourself that you CAN make it happen through action.
Take these five sayings with you every day as reminders that your life is up to you and you already have all of the tools necessary to achieve your dreams, even if you need a little help making them happen.
