4 Motivational Quotes For The New Year

Friday, 9 January 2015

Today I had an unproductive day. I had a big list of things to do but instead I procrastinated all day and got none of those things done. Today I was feeling very unmotivated. The weather was dull, wet and miserable and as I sit here and type I can hear the wind howling, things being blown over and car alarms beeping - Not very motivating or inspiring now is it?

I had a very different post scheduled for today but as I was scrolling through various different quotes on Pinterest, I suddenly felt a burst of motivation and inspiration! I decided to write a spur of the moment post sharing all of my favourite quotes that help motivate and inspire me on a daily basis.

I love quotes, some would say I'm a bit of a quoteaholic. I'm constantly writing new ones down, pinning them on Pinterest and, well, just living by them!

I'm sure we've all set ourselves goals for the New Year and sometimes it can be a bit disappointing if you don't achieve them so I really hope these quotes will help give you some motivation to conquer the world ;-)

1. A Goal Without A Plan Is Just A Wish.

No matter how big or small your goals are you should always make a plan of how you're going to achieve them. Whether it's something small like having a clear-out to getting an A in your Biology exam or whether it's something bigger like running a 10k marathon, you should always make a plan of what steps you're going to take to achieve those goals. 

Last year I tried to overcome my fear of school and start attending classes again but I didn't have a plan so I ended up only going to one class and I never went to another class while I was in 4th year. But then just before 5th year started I sat down and made a plan. I started small and gradually built it up and I'm very happy with my progress. Making a plan was such a good decision!

2. Ask Yourself If What You're Doing Today Is Getting You Closer To Where You Want To Be Tomorrow.

And if the answer is no.... change something! 

It's as simple as that!

You choose the path you want to go down, not anyone else!

3. Fall Seven Times, Stand Up Eight.

I just love this quote! Never giving up is most definitely the key to success! 

There has been lots of times where I've felt like giving up and letting my anxiety win but then I just read this quote several times and it pushes me to keep going. 

We've all fallen down lots of times but it's important to keep getting back up.

4. Be Not Afraid Of Going Slow, Be Afraid Only Of Standing Still.

And I've saved the best one for last! 

Every goal no matter what it is, will take time. Just remember success doesn't happen over night.

Just take your time and you'll get there eventually!

I hope you liked this style of post! It was a very last minute thing but I think they're the best posts really.

What motivates you? And is there any quotes that inspire/motivate you?

Wishing you all the best with achieving your goals!
