A good quote does a body good. It ignites a fire in me sometimes that is just the amount of motivation I need to get back at it. So I decided to gather a list of motivational quotes that I can come back to. And thought you might like it too. These are some of my favorite authors of all time!:

  1. “If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won’t, you most assuredly won’t. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.” ~Denis Waitley
  2. If you really believe in what you’re doing, work hard, take nothing personally and if something blocks one route, find another. Never give up. Laurie Notaro
  3. “My life – my personality, my habits, even my speech – is a combination of the books I choose to read, the people I choose to listen to, and the thoughts I choose to tolerate in my mind” -Andy Andrews
  4. “Most people fail at whatever they attempt because of an undecided heart. Should I? Should I not? Go forward? Go back? Success requires the emotional balance of a committed heart. When confronted with a challenge, the committed heart will search for a solution. The undecided heart searches for an escape.” -Andy Andrews
  5. “Remember, whatever you focus upon, increases…When you focus on the things you need, you’ll find those needs increasing. If you concentrate your thoughts on what you don’t have, you will soon be concentrating on other things that you had forgotten you don’t have-and feel worse! If you set your mind on loss, you are more likely to lose…But a grateful perspective brings happiness and abundance into a person’s life.”-Andy Andrews
  6. “I will not waste time on second thoughts. My life will not be an apology. It will be a statement.”-Andy Andrews
  7. “There are no hopeless situations, sweetheart, only people who have grown hopeless about them. You still have choices you can make.”-Andy Andrews
  8. “It’s okay to be scared—do it scared. It’s okay to be unsure—do it unsure. It’s okay to be uncomfortable—do it uncomfortable. Just get started where you are. That is the attitude of the most disciplined and successful people on the planet.”-Rory Vaden
  9. “realize all the things you are doing that are not taking you where you really want to go. It will help you see all the things you are doing that are not helping you create the results you want in your life. Those things will become more and more obvious to you, and once you get to that point, you will most likely have another powerful insight: Until you accomplish your next most Significant priority, everything else is a distraction. That brings us to the critical question you have to always be asking yourself: “Is what I’m doing right now the next most Significant use of my time?” Is it the thing that is moving you toward creating the best results? Is it the thing that is moving you toward making your greatest contribution? Is it the thing that is moving you toward making the impact you want to make?”-Rory Vaden
  10. “Why do so many of us succumb to fear? Because it’s more convenient and more comfortable for us to let our dreams disappear than to muster up the discipline and the work ethic to go out and transform them into reality.”-Rory Vaden
  11. “Success is not owned, it is rented – and that rent is due everyday.”-Rory Vaden
  12. “Action is the cure for fear.”-Rory Vaden
  13. “You can tell the size of the man by the size of the problem that gets him down.”-Eric Worre
  14. “If you succeed in this business, it’s going to be you who creates that success, not me. And, if you fail in this business, it’s going to be you who creates that failure, not me. You are going to be the difference between success or failure. I’m here to guide you every step of the way, but I can’t do it for you. I’m here to work with you, but not for you.”-Eric Worre
  15. “Lou Holtz said it best: “In this world you’re either growing or you’re dying so get in motion and grow.”-Eric Worre
  16. “Freedom is possible, but it isn’t free.”-Eric Worre
  17. “We Become What We Think About.” -Earl Nightingale
  18. “The best the timid can hope for is to be unnoticed. Criticism comes to those who stand out”-Seth Godin
  19. “The job isn’t to catch up to the status quo; the job is to invent the status quo”-Seth Godin
  20. “If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try”-Seth Godin
  21. “Being aware of your fear is smart. Overcoming it is the mark of a successful person.”-Seth Godin
  22. “In a crowded marketplace, fitting in is a failure. In a busy marketplace, not standing out is the same as being invisible.”-Seth Godin
  23. “People with clear, written goals, accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than people without them could ever imagine.”-Brian Tracy
  24. “It doesn’t matter where you are coming from. All that matters is where you are going”-Brian Tracy
  25. “I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.”-Brian Tracy
  26. “Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, ‘What’s in it for me?'”-Brian Tracy
