Motivation . . . The Power of a Quote

There is an old Proverb, “Words kill, words give life. They’re either poison or fruit. You choose.”

The principle is not limited to, “Spoken, sticks and stones kinds of words.” It also applies to quotes.

Here are four of my favorite that serve to boost my motivation . . .

“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.” – William James

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” – Helen Keller

“If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” – Dale Carnegie

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” – Mark Twain

I guess one of my favorite quotes is from my dad. “If you are going to do a job, do it right or don’t do it at all…” That has always stuck with me over the years…

“It takes a little courage, and a little self-control. And some grim determination, If you want to reach the goal. It takes a great deal of striving, and a firm and stern-set chin. No matter what the battle, if you really want to win, there’s no easy path to glory. There is no road to fame. Life, however we may view it, Is no simple parlor game; But its prizes call for fighting, For endurance and for grit; For a rugged disposition that will not quit.” – Navy SEAL Masterchief
One of my favs! Keeps me focused! Great post today!
