We could all use a little encouragement sometimes to help us persevere and achieve our goals. If that is what you need, then you are in the right place. Here are the top 10 positive, uplifting quotes that will inspire you to have a productive week.
“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.” – Zig Ziglar
“The only thing worse than starting something and failing … is not starting something.” – Seth Godin
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.” – Mark Twain
“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.” – Pablo Picasso
“The future depends on what you do today.” – Mahatma Gandhi
When you put off starting something, you delay any benefit that you will get from it. The time to start is right now. You don’t have to have a perfect plan or solve everything in one day – you have to start somewhere.
If you never take that first step towards your dream, you will likely regret it one day and wonder what might have been. Is that not worse than the remote possibility of failure?
Setting realistic short and long-term goals for larger projects can be helpful. Even just starting with the easiest task or the smallest step will put you further ahead than you were yesterday. The only way that you can surely fail is by never allowing yourself to begin.
Don’t Let Anything Stand In Your Way
“Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.” – John R. Wooden
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” – C.S. Lewis
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
“It does not matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop.” – Confucius
The only person who needs to believe that you can do it is yourself. It is nice to have others backing you, but it is not necessary for success. There will always be people ready to stand in your way, but you can always choose to ignore them or go around them. They can’t stop you if you refuse to let them slow you down.
Please don’t let your own self-doubt, traits, and fears keep you from reaching your potential either. Being the best or the fastest is not as crucial as persevering. Keep moving and never give up!
