Motivational Quotes about Life

“When someone wants something the whole universe conspires in their favour.” – Paola Coehlo

You have probably heard of the Alchemist by Paola Coehlo. If you read it and loved it and are a fan of reading quotes I recommend the Warrior of Light. It will really enlighten you. As a child, I used to read it every day and this motivational quote about life stuck with me throughout. 

Just the notion that the whole universe is working to help your dreams come true gives me a real boost. It has to do with the idea of manifesting what I want and the universe will work to get it for me. Manifesting works and it just means giving good vibes onto the universe about what you want. You can do that through your gratitude journal

So if I want a new job I will manifest the job I want. I will imagine that I am working there and the feeling I will get from the new job. I imagine getting that email saying congratulations. Now don’t be stuck on just thinking about the job all the time. It is more about putting it out there in the universe and letting the universe do the magic. 

And another thing to remember is your dreams are not just going to come true tomorrow, it takes time. When you are about to give up that is the  moment the universe could be planning for your dreams to come true. So don’t give up, keep manifesting.

“There are two rules in life: Rule #1 Don’t sweat the small stuff. Rule #2: Everything is small stuff.” – Finn Taylor 

This motivational quote about life really puts everything into perspective. We think one moment means so much and overthink in our heads. When we look back everything seems small. This quote inspires me to stop obsessing about all the things that went wrong and focus on enjoying the moment. 

“Some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all—in which case, you fail by default.” – JK Rowling 

Sometimes I need a push to take on a new challenge. This quote gives me that push. Do you want to just stay in your comfort zone and not try anything? In which case you aren’t really living. Or do you want to go ahead and take on that challenge? JK Rowling had difficulty publishing Harry Potter but she kept going on. Imagine such an amazing book and she had such problems. It really puts into perspective that we could achieve if we keep trying. 

“Everything is hard before it is easy” – Goethe J W

It is a myth that people are born good at things. Yeah everyone has some difference in innate abilities but a lot of it depends on how much effort and practice you put into it. When we take on a new challenge it is going to be hard but as we learn, practice and put in the effort we will improve. Eventually, the task will become easy. Think back to a something challenging you learned. Didn’t it seem hard at first? Does it still feel hard?

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” Neale Donald Walsh

Great things are not achieved by staying away from challenges. So, get out there take the risk! You will not regret it! I am scared of heights but I push myself to do activities such as parasailing because I know life begins at the end of my comfort zone. We all have to push through that fear!

“For fast-acting relief, try slowing down” – Lilly Tomlin 

“The Secret of getting ahead is getting started”- Mark Twain

“To change ourselves effectively, we first had to change our perceptions.” – Stephen R. Covey

“No matter what your current ability is, effort is what ignites that ability and turns it into accomplishment.” –Carol S. Dweck

A goal properly set is halfway reached” – Zig Ziglar

“A year from now you may wish you had started today.” – Karen Lamb

“You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.” – Wayne Gretsky

 “Fear is the disease. Hustle is the antidote.” – Travis Kalanick

“The end of fear is where we begin” – The Goo Goo dolls
