Ready to get a jump-start on the New Year? Here are 5 inspirational quotes that will change your life.
“Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.” – Les Brown
We are raised, sometimes, to make excuses for our actions. Albeit when we are children there may be a valid excuse, but as we get older our behavior and our life is actually starting to mold into our own responsibility. From teen years into adulthood, we start to and ultimately become 100% responsible for our own life. Make a vision board today, and focus on making your life what you want it, no more excuses.
“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.” – Bill Cosby
I like this quote, in order to succeed that desire must be stronger than the fear that can hold you back. Fear is a funny thing and it is an emotion that can take hold of us, controlling us and holding us back from our full potential. No longer allow fear to reside in your life, when fear tries to rear it’s ugly head into your world, knock it out of there and put your eye back on the prize. I walked away from a nearly full time admin assistant position when I was pregnant with my second born and started working from home on a whim, I didn’t let fear overcome me, I just dove in and I succeed. You can too when you read inspirational quotes daily!
“The best revenge is massive success.” – Frank Sinatra
I love this quote because it reminds me of someone, I never had thought of massive success as a form of revenge, but think about it; have you ever been picked up? Have you ever been told that you won’t ever make it? Creating your own success story is the perfect way to nonchalantly say, “oh yeah? Screw you, I made it!” Whatever fuels your desire in success, use it to light that fire under your bum this New Year and get moving forward to your positive future!
“Life is short, live it. Love is rare, grab it. Anger is bad, dump it. Fear is awful, face it. Memories are sweet, cherish it.” – Unknown
What more is there to say about this inspirational quote? Love life is what I always say. Wake up each day enjoying the memories you have from yesterday, the love you have in your life and let go of any anger holding you back from your positive future!
And last but not least, this inspirational quote will leave you on a positive note …
“Self confidence is the most attractive quality a person can have. how can anyone see how awesome you are if you can’t see it yourself?” – Unknown
Self confidence won’t come overnight, it takes practice and as I tell many who I work with virtually and in real life, you must almost fake it to make it. Seriously. I know it sounds odd, but my teen daughter has a great tip that she shares with others to assist in being more self confident; “wake up each day and write down 3 things you like about yourself every morning.” My daughter goes on to say that it doesn’t matter what those 3 three things are, you can find 3 small things to like about yourself and each day those 3 things will build into something more. One day you will realize that you stand taller, look happier and finally; have found your self confidence!
