Most of us have, at one time or another, needed some words of encouragement to keep going as we weave our way through life’s many challenges day after day. They are like spurts of energy that replenishes our mind, body and spirit with the right dose of motivation to spur us on.
A motivational quote can be inspiring, encouraging and thought-provoking. A positive quote can be insightful, purposeful and hopeful. A leadership quote can be transforming, revolutionizing and life-changing. If ever you feel like giving up, don’t. Get up and go forward. You were created to be just as awesome as some of the best that ever lived on earth. All you need is an inspiration!
Here is a cross-section of quotes by the great minds of our time, past and present, who continue to awe us with their extraordinary feats, deeds and exploits.
Life is like that:
“IN THREE WORDS I CAN SUM UP EVERYTHING I’VE LEARNED ABOUT LIFE: IT GOES ON.” – Robert Frost
“IF YOU ARE GOING THROUGH HELL, KEEP GOING.” – Winston Churchill
“THOSE WHO DARE TO FAIL MISERABLY CAN ACHIEVE GREATLY.” – John F. Kennedy
“THE FUTURE BELONGS TO THOSE WHO PREPARE FOR IT TODAY.” – Malcolm X
We teach, we educate and we empower:
“DON’T TELL PEOPLE HOW TO DO THINGS, TELL THEM WHAT TO DO AND LET THEM SURPRISE YOU WITH THEIR RESULTS.” – George S. Patton JR
“MY JOB IS NOT TO BE EASY ON PEOPLE. MY JOB IS TO MAKE THEM BETTER.” – Steve Jobs
“IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU. IT’S ABOUT THEM.” – Clint Eastwood
“A LEADER TAKES PEOPLE WHERE THEY WANT TO GO. A GREAT LEADER TAKES
PEOPLE WHERE THEY DON’T NECESSARILY WANT TO GO, BUT OUGHT TO BE.” – Rosalynn Carter
“WE DARED TO DREAM BECAUSE YOU DID. WE DARED TO FLY BECAUSE YOU DID. AND NOW WE DARE SO OTHERS MAY DREAM DREAMS AND FLY HIGH.”- Tan Sri Lim Kok Wing
According to the Chinese sage Lao-tzu, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Yes, I agree with the learned one: to get started in anything, one needs to take the first step and the rest of the journey isn’t that distant. Sure, you may stumble and fall, but like what George Bernard Shaw said, “A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.”We all make mistakes, right? Just don’t repeat it. Henry Ford tells us that “The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.”
Oh, by the way, here is another gem…😊😊😊
