As it’s the start of August (how did that even happen so fast?!), I thought I’d get it off to a motivational start with some quotes. I am a massive fan of quotes that inspire me and remind me to continue to strive for what I want and work hard. I also love having them as my phone and desktop backgrounds too. So I thought I’d share my top 5 with you.
LOVE THIS. Not only is it from one of my favourite films of all time, The Greatest Showman, I also find it a great reminder. It’s so easy to stay doing what is easiest, or having the mindset that ‘I’m not ready to move on yet I still need to do x, y, z etc.’ But when is it really the right time to take the next step, or find a new job, or pursue your hobby as a career?
This leads nicely to this next one…
Again, I agree with this one whole heartedly. At the end of the day, the only way to improve and get better is to give it 100%. It also goes with the phrase ‘fake it til you make it.’ Even the most successful people started with no knowledge in their skill. There will never be the ‘right time’ to start something, but it’s always wasted time spent regretting you didn’t. What’s worse?
I love this one from Steve Jobs. Because I am so easily swayed by other people’s opinions (i’m trying to get better and not being so), I found it particularly relatable and it is a quote I try to live by.
I left my favourite one until last. I have to admit, I am one to start something and feel like giving up when I haven’t made the progress I wanted to in the time I had. But I have to remind myself that as long as I’m moving forward everyday, regardless of the pace, I’m still making progress.
I hope you enjoyed these quotes. I love finding new ones so let me know what your favourites are.
Thanks for reading x
