7 Motivational Quotes That Will Get You Moving
By: Tiffany Langford
Everyone has something that they are striving for. A successful human is one who is constantly setting goals, no matter how drastic or crazy they may seem to others. The only person holding us back is the man in the mirror. Here are seven motivational quotes that will help you to get started on your journey toward success.
- “Look in the mirror, that’s your competition.”
In the game of life, the only one who is holding you back is yourself. Thinking of change is one thing, but making the effort and doing whatever it takes to get to where you want to be is another. This is a reminder that your battle is a battle of the mind.
2. “The fact that you aren’t where you want to be should be enough motivation.”
How many times have you thought about doing something but never took action? This quote is a reminder that all we need is the will to change. The reward will be looking back and seeing how far you have come.
3. “You have to push yourself, no one else is going to do it for you.”
When you want something, there is no one else in the world who can conquer that task but you. No one can keep you from it, and no one can do it for you. You have to make the decision within yourself that you want to be better, live better, and do better, plain and simple.
4. “Wake up with determination, go to bed with satisfaction.”
You do not wake up everyday feeling as if you can tackle the world. This quote is telling us to keep moving forward, even when we don’t feel like it. Tomorrow you will wish you would have started today. Wake up and do what you got to do to be the best you can be, whether or not you feel like it. Then when you lay your head down at night you will feel satisfied.
5. “Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.”
What is the number one thing that holds us back from being the best that we can be? Fear. Fear is an ugly disease that keeps you from accomplishing all that you are capable of in life. What is the worst that can happen? Strive today to be all you can be, tomorrow you will be thankful you pushed past your fears.
6. “The journey of 1,000 miles begins with one step.”
The first step is the hardest, then the second step is hard, then the third step is a little less hard. Each step gets your closer toward your goal. No matter how far away that goal may seem, taking that first step is the most important step you can take.
7. “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.”
Anything that is worth it in life is going to be a challenge. When you overcome the obstacles it takes to get there, then no one can discredit you because you did what it took to get to where you are. Today you can take that step in order to succeed in whatever you are striving for in life. Now go out and get it.
