Great things said by some great people give us the motivation to live and struggle sometimes. In a tough life where we are running like a machine, we deserve to treat ourselves with love and care and to tell ourselves that we can achieve huge things. When we are in despair, we look for others to tell us that we have the courage and potential to do anything. What if we become those ‘others’ for ourselves and say the things that we look to be said by someone else? Here are a few inspiring quotes that you can paste on your mirror, your walls, or anywhere in the room so that you are motivated to achieve new milestones every morning when you wake up and read them. 

‘You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.’

(Zig Ziglar)

Don’t expect too much from yourself before you have even started. This quote will tell you each day that you can be great one day and you have to start working for that. Nothing comes without hard work and if you put in your efforts, they will definitely bring the fruit. 

‘There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.’

(Beverly Stills)

If you have big dreams, give them enough time and effort to be reached. Don’t expect success to come to you overnight. This quote will help you realize the importance of long-term efforts and patience to reach your goals.  

‘Procrastination makes easy things hard and hard things harder.’

(Mason Cooley)

One of the major issues of students nowadays is procrastination. You need to read it daily to remember the fact that your task is not actually hard and that you have to start doing it. Remember that it will get harder and harder if you keep delaying it. 

‘Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated.’

(R Collier)

Sometimes we get tired of working every day and not getting any results. And some days, we do not feel motivated enough to work because we don’t see any immediate result attached to it. At times like this, you should read this quotation to get inspired. It tells how important the daily small efforts are to be successful in the long run. 

‘You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.’ 

(A.A Milne)

Show yourself some love and know that you are more capable than you think you are. No matter how difficult the day is going to be or how big of a challenge you have for the day, this quotation will make you motivated enough to work with all your potential and cross all the barriers. 

‘Just one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.’

(Dalai Lama)

Never let your day be started with negative thoughts. Reading this quote will make you have positive and happy thoughts in the morning so that your whole day is spent in the same way. 

‘Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.’

(Hellen Keller)

Again, the importance of having positive thoughts and beliefs is huge. You should believe it when a great writer has said it. Have faith in yourself and see the success coming towards you.

Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.’

(Thomas Edison)

If you are on the verge of giving up or thinking to stop trying, read what Thomas Edison has to say about you. Keep trying and keep struggling because success is somewhere near you.
