Motivation is a way of life

People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily. – Zig Ziglar

Motivation doesn’t always come to us naturally. It is like a muscle, use it or loose it. To stay motivated we must wake up each day, appreciating the fresh start the day ahead holds. Then we must find motivation again and again making it a fundamental part of our daily routine. If you need inspiration for starting a great daily motivational routine then read this previous post.

It’s not all about talent

Motivation will almost always beat mere talent. – Norman Ralph Augustine

Don’t ever be afraid to try something new. We can’t all share the same talents. If we were all talented in the same areas, then the ‘talent’ wouldn’t be a talent ! However that doesn’t mean that you should not try out new opportunities and activities.

You can have all the talent in the world, but the determination to see something through. The desire to push yourself is an incredibly powerful emotion.

Do it for love

Money is not a motivating factor. Money doesn’t thrill me or make me play better because there are benefits to being wealthy. I’m just happy with a ball at my feet. My motivation comes from playing the game I love. If I wasn’t paid to be a professional footballer I would willingly play for nothing. – Lionel Messi

We all would like to have more money in our lives. Money helps ……………. a lot ! But we all know deep down that life is about so much more than money.

Always aim to do something for love and passion. Let your motivation come from deep within yourself. You will find that your sense of achievement will be so much more greater and meaningful.

Look to the future

Our greatest motivation in life comes from not knowing the future. – Thomas Frey

Worrying about the future causes anxiety. Your mind can go crazy thinking about all the what if’s ? The how’s ? And the when’s? Of life. We all want to live our best life.

In order to allow ourselves to look forward to the future, we must enjoy life in the moment.

Look forward to the future by thinking about your ambitions and your dreams. Imagine your best life and be excited about all the amazing things that await you. Your future is unwritten and is yours to create. That my friends is an exciting prospect.

Motivational quotes to lift your spirits. Pearls of wisdom to inspire you.

It’s your life to live. Take responsibility for your own life

This for me shares the most powerful message of all.

Throughout my life I have wasted so much time, waiting for things to happen. Waiting for opportunities to come my way. Hoping my dreams would come true.

A knock at the door, an arrival of a special delivery with my name on it. FRAGILE OPEN WITH CARE ! This box contains your dream life.

That parcel never did arrive. 

It took me quite some time to work out that life really is about seizing the day. Getting out there and creating your own journey.

Realising that my life is what I make of it, that I hold all of the cards and can do anything I want to in life if I put my mind to it is an awesome feeling.

We must take responsibility for the lives we lead. If things are not going in the direction you would like then YOU NEED TO CHANGE DIRECTION.

You are the only person in your life that can live your life. So ….. take that course, travel, save up, get healthy, read that book, call that friend, visit your relative, climb that mountain……… there really is nothing you cannot do. The only thing in your way is yourself.

So there you have it. 5 motivational quotes to give you some inspiration and a push in the right direction.
