Sometimes we wake up with a feeling that we cannot conquer whatever is in front of us. During these times, we often need a little assurance, a little pat on the back to tell us that we are capable and that everything will be alright.
Below then are some motivational quotes to start each week or day with.
“If you can’t do anything about, then let it go. Don’t be a prisoner to things you can’t change”
This quote is one of the best that can keep you going. Tony Gaskins discourages us from continually trying to change things that are well beyond our control. We often let our worry about things beyond our control weigh us down. But each morning, each start of the week, read this quote to understand that you are only capable of changing what you can control. What you can’t should be left alone.
“Opportunity is missed by people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work”
If you want to get something done, then you need to be aware of the work you need to do to create that opening. This quote by Edison helps us understand that opportunities don’t always come to us as we expect. We will often need to put in the work to recognize the opportunities around us.
“If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more”
As has been studied for a long time, our brains often prefer to remain in a state of inertia, a state of comfort. But with this quote, Erica Jong is letting us know that if we do not take risks, we risk losing even more than we would have if we had risked.
Now, you don’t need to take risks just for the sake of it. Calculated risks are what you need to take for better outcomes. This is especially true in business or career, where stagnation means you risk going out of business or stalling in your career.
“Be the change you want to see in the world”
This quote encourages us to practice what we wish to receive. If you want to receive kindness, be kind. If you want to receive love, be loving. If you want a community where people care for one another, begin by caring for others. This quote is a call to action for us to make the first step towards improving the world around us.
