I couldn’t miss the question of the week!
I love quotes! Some people just have great insight and prospective and I love reflecting on words of wisdom from those with different experiences then my own. So tonight I went on a quote hunt and just read page after page. Some are funny, some inspirational, motivational and just overall interesting life lessons.
This one really stood out for me tonight…
There are two things to aim at in life; first to get what you want, and after that to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind has achieved the second.
-Logan Pearsall Smith
A few others that caught my eye…
The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.
People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.
George Bernard Shaw
Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.
Norman Vincent Peale
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe.
So how about you? Any favorites out there? If you can’t think of one I recommend searching and reading through a few. It’s really a fun way to find some inspiration and motivation!
