Motivational Quotes Motivate our Souls - Motivational Quotes

Sometimes it’s hard to get your “get up and go” going. It can be particularly hard when things aren’t quite going your way, or worse, things get in your way. The right motivational quotes can give you the energy and drive to soldier on, knowing that others have been there before you. Whether you’re using them to motivate yourself or a friend, motivational quotes can lift your spirits like nothing else, pointing the way to eventual success, even in the face of tremendous adversity. As they say, "when the going gets tough, the tough get going."

Want to get ahead in the world? Want to see success in the things that you do? Want to set goals and be able to reach them? Well then you need to have the right attitude to get there. If you ask any motivational expert, the key to success is having a mindset that pushes you towards your goals. What this means is that you know what you want, set the goal and then have a path to work towards it. But it's not always easy to gain the motivation necessary to reach the mountaintop of success.

So what can you do? You need to put together a game plan to reach success that will include a little house cleaning, motivational quotes, and a lot of hard work.

When I say house cleaning, this is not necessarily a physical type of cleaning. You need to get rid of the negative things in the world around you that are taking part in holding you back. Unfortunately, this is often some of the people around you, always working against anything positive going on in your world. They are the perpetual naysayers that you need to remove from your sphere of impact. You need to surround yourself with influential and uplifting people. Qualities of a good friend are found in our collection of friendship quotes, so be sure to include several in your personal assembly of inspiration.

You may not be able to completely remove the negative people in your life, which is why the next step is to surround yourself with positive thoughts. Motivational quotes are one of the easiest ways to help you get in the right mindset. Combine them with inspirational quotes to pave your road to success with words that will uplift and encourage you in your goals.

Here are a couple examples:

"The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will." - Vince Lombardi

"Success does not consist in never making blunders, but in never making the same one a second time."
- Josh Billings

If every time there is something that seems to be working against you, just look at one of these quotes about life and you will be able to get your mindset back on track towards your own success. Do not be discouraged by a difficult day, either; everyone has difficult days. When you need a great pick me up, take a look at a few funny quotes to brighten your day and once again make your dreams seem achievable.

Steve Jobs

"Your time is limited, don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinion drowned your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." Steve Jobs
Stanford University commencement address (12 June 2005) During Jobs's address to the students and faculty, he spoke of his dropping out of college and how important the choices he made while still a dropout were to his eventual success. Add Category or Author
