Great quotes can change your life if you use them correctly. They are great lessons from great thinkers.
Great quotes have helped me focus, and I hope they will help you, too. Here are some that I put together for you:
There is nothing in life to be feared.
“Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”- Marie Curie, French-Polish physicist
We are human beings. We fear what we don’t understand. We fear what we don’t know. We fear things because we don’t understand them. If you want to be fearless, instead of running away from something that you don’t know, try to understand it.
Motivation is simple.
“Motivation is simple. You eliminate those who are not motivated.”– Lou Holtz, former football player
In this case, if you want to motivate yourself, know why you are doing what you are doing. If you know why you are doing what you doing, you will be motivated to reach your goals. Motivation tied to a purpose, is not going to fail. If you tie your motivation to your purpose in life, you will not fail. You will have the power to continue even when others have given up.
Real motivation is internal, not external.
What are your relationships doing for you?
“Each relationships nurtures a strength or weakness within you.”– Mike Murdock
Your relationships are either helping you or hurting you. If you are in a relationship that is not helping you, it is time to quit. If you continue with it, you are not adding value to your life. You are destroying your life. You are destroying your health. On the other hand, if your relationships are in great shape, do whatever it takes to keep it. A healthy relationship is a healthy life. A toxic relationship is a toxic life. To have peace of mind, maintain a healthy relationship with yourself- your mind.
If you want to succeed in life, try everything.
“You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take.”– Wayne Gretzky,
Try something before you judge. If you want to succeed, try everything. It is important to try everything because you don’t which one is going to do it for you. You only know what you can do or cannot do if you try. If you don’t try something, you will not know whether you can or cannot do. ALWAYS try everything.
