Remember those new year’s resolutions that got forgotten right after you put the Christmas tree away? Or those dance lessons that every week you keep promising yourself you will start next week? And the promises that you will work more on your dreams? Well, don’t worry, we are all guilty of this behavior. Here, I put together a small list of quotes that is meant to burst your motivation (and mine too), or at least make you think about it ;- )
1.Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me. – Carol Burnet
I agree that, sometimes, it is hard to accept this one because it seems easier to think that we are not lucky enough, that we don’t have this or that, and that there is not much we can do to change things. Circumstances. Also, it is easier to find an excuse than to find a way to change something. But before complaining, let’s ask ourselves : What am I doing to change this situation? If you’ve done everything you could then you know you are on the right track..if not.. ask yourself one more time, and be true to yourself.
2.Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. – Charles R. Swindoll
Of course we can’t control everything that happens to us, but we are in charge of how we react to it. A situation is nothing else that what we make out of it, and it is up to us to see it as a failure or a lesson. We are the one to decide how to receive our results by choosing the way we perceive them.
3.You will never win if you never begin. – Helen Rowland
How can we harvest the results if we don’t work on it? The fear of failure (or success) and the fear to be judged by others is often a reason that holds us back from pursuing our ideas. To exit this vicious circle is enough to take the first step towards achieving your goal and let the rest follow.
4.The hardship I encounter in the past will help me succeed in the future.- Philip Emeagwall
There are no easy ways to reach our goals.
5.Either I will find a way, either I will make one.- Philip Sidney
When we want something with all our heart, we tend to become very creative.As a result, we find our way towards the cherry on top of the cake.
6.Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence. Vince Lombardi
We don’t have to strive to be perfect, but to try to become our best version is what I call excellence.
7.Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed – Dale Carnegie
Give a chance to your courage to take over your fear and your doubts and watch them both fade away.
8.Creating Good Luck is to prepare the circumstances at any opportunity. But the opportunity is not a matter of chance: it is always there! – Alex Rovira/Fernando Trias de Bes (Good Luck)
The opportunities are always around us, but we see them only when we are ready for it. By improving our skills, and by overcoming our fears, we allow those opportunities to reach us, so we can make the best out of it.
Have a great day, Victoria V.
