Sometimes we all need a bit of motivation to keep us feeling fiery and inspired throughout the week.
Here are ten of my favourite motivational quotes, many of which I keep on my vision board to serve as reminders to persist towards my goals. I am such a big believer in self-motivation, I think it is such a powerful force that we can really use to improve our minds and lives!
Every time I want to click the snooze button on my iPhone alarm in the morning, I remember this quote. Achieving your goals and dream will take hard work and you won’t smash them if you spend all day sleeping. Get up and get going!
This one is so major right now, especially with the current state of our social media and “Instagram Culture” way of life. All it takes is a quick scroll through Instagram to leave you feeling like your life has no purpose and to push you straight into a quarter life crisis, questioning EVERYTHING and anything. Trust me, it gets real dramatic, real fast. The best way to curb this unpleasant feeling is to really limit your time spent on social media, especially if you feel like you are in a negative mood straight after it. Instead, work on doing things which make you happy and not comparing your life to anyone else’s.
Finding things in life which really excite you and that you are totally passionate about is not always easy. The first step which you can start with is by making a list of things that you love, whether it would be hobbies, certain topics or even certain things which you are good at. From there, you can explore each of those and start focusing on the activities which set your soul on fire.
A excellent book which I have been reading lately is Grit by Angela Duckworth. This book delves into the “power of passion and perseverance”. The truth is that many people will give up whenever things get difficult. Learning to push through the tough times can make you a much stronger person and you will have a much deeper appreciation for your success when you reach it.
I am a huge planner. I will have a plan for almost everything, no matter how mundane it may seem (e.g. a plan for cleaning out my closet). However, it is always important to keep your goal at the forefront of your mind because changing the plan is much easier to alter. Whenever the plan doesn’t work, it is always helpful to remind yourself why you started and why you want to achieve your goals. This should help keep you on the right track.
These are such beautiful words, I think they really speak for themselves!
In life, we can feel like we are constantly being told what to do, how to act and how to live our lives. It can definitely be confusing to figure out what you want and what you love in the all the noise. When you feel like you are being pushed into doing something just because everyone else, take a step back and remind yourself who you are and what you are passionate about.
There are for sure times when life can feel uncontrollably rough. Everyone has these moments but they get through them. Always remember that getting through the dark times, gives you more strength than you could even imagine. During the tough times, it helps to talk to someone, whether it’s your family or a friend, someone who will listen without judgement.
I think so many of us cruise by through life, just existing. It can be so easy to get caught in this trap. Think about it, how many people do you know that are at a job that they hate, spending most of their time complaining about it rather than doing anything to improve their situation? Okay not going to lie, I have totally been that person! What I realised was that I am in control of my life. So if I don’t like my job then it is my responsibility to find a new one. Sometimes it may not seem easy but I promise that you can do it!
The final quote is definitely my favourite! Goals and dreams are important but it is important to remember to take time out for yourself and to spend time with your friends and loved ones.
I hope these quotes can give you the motivation to conquer this week! What are your favourite quotes to keep you feeling inspired?
