Hi there my beautiful lovelies! Hope you guys are doing well and staying safe. Today I will share with you my top 20 motivational quotes that inspire me to get more done every day. Hope these inspiring quotes motivate you to get more things done every day. It is exactl what it does for me.
Motivational Quote One:
“You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.
– Tonny Robbins
Looking at this quote always motivates me to do what do. Even if I feel tired I remind myself if I don’t take any action, things will not get done even if I know what do you. Living with ADHD doesn’t make things easy. Hence, I always have all these inspirational, motivational quotes on the wall so that I can take a look at them throughout the day.
Motivational Quote Two:
“Life is short. Do stuff that matters.”
– Siqi Chen
This is one quote I tell myself all the time. If we have learned from the current pandemic if life is short. It motivates me to do things that matter to me, i.e., spending time with my family, share and connect with others through my blog and YouTube channel.
Motivational Quote Three:
“It always seems impossible until it’s done”.
– Nelson Mandela
This is one of my favorite motivational quotes. My grandfather used to tell me that there is nothing impossible in life if we have the motivation to and in turn, actually take the first step to take the appropriate action.
Motivational Quote Four:
“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work”.
– Stephen King
Stephen King is one of my favorite writers with his description stories that awaken our vivid imagination. I love this quote because I know from my experience that waiting for inspiration does not take us to the finish like but working towards it does.
We landed on the moon, invented cures for the most life-threatening diseases because the great heroes got up and went to work on the cure. Even during this current pandemic, our healthcare, and frontline heroes did not wait for inspiration. Instead, they got up and went to work every day so that we could stay home.
Motivational Quote Five:
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
– Franklin Delano Roosevelt
This is another of my most favorite motivational quotes. Every time I used to get nervous about taking a step, I used to remind myself of the above words of FDR. I would keep going a small step at a time until the finish line.
Motivational Quote Six:
“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life”.
– Muhammad Ali
I have seen the importance of the above words of Muhammad Ali in real life. I was stuck on my current job with a low salary because I didn’t want to take the risk to move forward. To me, it was not about money but I just did not want to take any risk if when opportunities arrived. As a result I staying in the same position without any movement and low wage. It took me further and further away from a public health career.
However, when I decided to take the risk, it allowed me to experience the other side of healthcare, meet different people, get exposed to racism at work, and then get the chance to work with some amazing scientists and researchers of this country. If I didn’t decide to finally take the step to explore further, I would not have grown as a person, a public health professional, and a stronger individual.
Motivational Quote Seven:
“Where there’s a will there’s a way”
– English Proverb
This has to be my favorite motivational quote. Since, I can remember whenever I was stuff on something, my grandfather used always say, “when there’s a will there’s a way”. These few words helped me through some very rough times in my life. I always reminded myself complacency is not an option if I want to make changes.
Motivational Quote Eight:
“Don’t allow our doubts of today limit our tomorrow.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt
This so true. I have seen it first hand. In order to nurture and awake your spiritual self, you first and foremost need to under that what you think will manifest on your outcome. For example, if you approach preparing for an example with the attitude, “I’m going to do bad on the exam”, that negative attitude with manifest on your preparation and the outcome. Hence, if you start something with the attitude that you will succeed, it will manifest in a successful outcome, because your positive attitude and motivation will lead to the result your are seeking. Hence, before starting anything just remind yourself the above words.
Motivational Quote Nine:
“Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.”
This is similar to FDR’s quote. As I have mentioned above, how you approach your actions will manifest in the outcome. If you do your best and have the positive attitude during your action, you will be in the best position for a successful outcome.
Motivational Quote Ten:
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he wo conquers that fear.”
– Nelson Mandela
The biggest evidence of the above words are seen during horrific pandemic. Healthcare workers and other frontline staff triumphed over their fear of catching the virus and/or giving it to their loved ones with COVID-19. It is their relentless bravery that have saved many lives, and allowed us to stay home. Similarly, it is the bravery of our service men and women that keep us safe at home.
Motivational Quote Eleven:
“How you climb a mountain is more important than reaching the top.”
– Yvon Chouinard
Your journey in life is more important than your destination. It is those moments that help us grow as a person, and learn. I would not change anything about my journeys, because it was during those times, good and bad, I have learned the important lessons of life and grow as a person.
Motivational Quote Twelve:
“There is no royal, flower-strewn path to success. And if there is, I have not found it. For if I have accomplished anything in life, it is because I have been willing to work hard.”
– C.J. Walker
The above motivational quote inspires me every day to work hard to achieve my goals. If we are motivated and work hard to achieve our goals we will be successful. It is up to us to create the path towards success. I have seen it happening each and every moment of my life.
Motivational Quote Thirteen:
“Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.”
– Henry Ford
This is a short much very inspiring motivational quote. Whenever I am stuck on a hard project, I remind myself to break it into small parts and handle one by one. Before I know it, I have finished the project with ease.
Motivational Quote Fourteen:
“All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them,”
– Walt Disney
This is my favorite Walt Disney quote. Throughout history, from Gandhi to Martin Luther King, Jr to all the successful people in this world have got this done, not because they sat on the sideline, but because they decided to get and pursue their goals. They decided to take action.
Motivational Quote Fifteen:
“The hunger for change is the desire to make a change.”
– Laila Gifty Akita
In our current life, we all hungry for change. What are tired of seeing people dying due to a lack of leadership. We are tired of all the negativity and divisiveness. We are tired. However, in order to show our hunger for change we can to desire and work to make the change.
Marching is not enough, we need to take our frustration to the polling place where our voices will be heard loud and clear. Our votes are our voice, our weapon against absurdity. Remember that before deciding to sit at home and not vote for this election. Remember some states were won/lost by only about 10,000 votes. Do you want to be on the right or wrong side of history?
Motivational Quote Sixteen:
“To think is easy. To act is hard. But the hardest thing in the world is to act in accordance with your thinking.”
– Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
There is a big difference between talking the talk and walking the walk. Those who are successful take the courage to act in accordance with their dreams. They act on their pursuit and they break their goals into small pieces and address one at a time until they have completed the who. They are courageous.
Motivational Quote Seventeen:
While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.
– Henry Link
We cannot be complacent, we need to learn from our mistakes and take actions for our own betterment. I still remember my grandfather telling me “if you fail try and try again…this is how you will learn”. I cannot me afraid of making mistake. It is our mistake that makes us better.
Motivational Quote Eighteen:
“If spend too much time thinking about a thing, you will never get it done.
– Bruce Lee
The above words are so true. Every time, when I spend too much time dwelling to something, I never get it done. I just become exhausted and give up. As Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe mentioned, “To think is easy. To act is hard. But the hardest thing in the world is to act in accordance with your thinking.”
Motivational Quote Nineteen:
“You cant be that kid standing at the top of the waterslide, overthinking it. You have to go down the chute.”
– Tina Fey
As shown above, acting in accordance with our thinking is the hardest thing to do. As FDR said, “the only fear we should fear is fear itself.” Additionally. as seen this years and during the past four years. The marches, seen all over the years the past few years is hard. However, taking actions based on those beliefs is the hardest. We need to take the ultimate action, vote, to get our voice hard louder and anything else.
Motivational Quote Twenty:
“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.”
One thing we have learned this year, is life is short and transient. Over 223,000 Americans and over 1.1 million people worldwide died due to COVID-19. Hence, we always have to think that we may not be here tomorrow. We should not leave anything for tomorrow, and it is uncertain. When leaving a task for tomorrow, think if there will be regrets for not getting those think being undone. Just remember you have not have tomorrow.
