Motivational Quotes

Motivational Quotes will make you think, and motivate you to positive action.

Zig Ziglar once quoted that:

"People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily."

He made a very good point.

We are bombarded by negativity. It's all around us. TV, newspapers, internet, etc.

Motivational Quotes

I watched a documentary named Bowling for Columbine by Michael Moore. Even though it mainly covered firearms, what I found interesting is that Canadians have very little violence compared to the United States.

What Michael uncovered is that we are taught to fear everything because of our news outlets.

Fear is so ingrained in our culture that you must eliminate as much of it as you can.

Without daily motivation you could fall into a pattern of negative thinking that could affect, not only your income, but your health as well.

Staying motivated is not an easy task in the beginning.

When you make motivation a habit, it becomes a lot easier to motivate yourself when necessary.

I hope you enjoy the following motivational quotes as much as I do.

Quotes on Motivation

"The best motivating is self-motivating. The guy says, “I wish someone would come by and turn me on. “What if they don’t show up? You’ve got to have a better plan for your life."

Jim Rohn

Michael LeBoeuf


"Positive thoughts are life enhancing. They empower you and make you feel stronger and more confident. Positive thinking is not just a motivational idea. It has measurable, constructive effects on your personality, your health, your levels of energy, and your creativity. The more positive and optimistic you are, the happier you will be in every area of your life."

Brian Tracy

Kenneth Hildebrand


"The biggest difference between a “wisher” and a “doer” is motivation."

"When we look at the collected research for fundamental human motivations over the past few decades, as well as historical examples, it generally comes down to three core motivators: money, freedom, and meaning."

Taylor Pearson


"Knowledge is the theoretical paradigm, the what to do and the why. Skill is the how to do. And desire is the motivation, the want to do. In order to make something a habit in our lives, we have to have all three."

Stephen R. Covey


"Instead of looking outward for someone or something to motivate us, how much easier it would be for us to turn inward and use ourselves for our own motivation!"

Vic Johnson


"Praise from a manager, written thanks, and public praise were three of the top five motivators among the surveyed employees."

Dale Carnegie


"Until you’ve set your desire and motivation in place, you’ll abandon any new path you seek to better your life. If your why-power, your desire, isn’t great enough, if the fortitude of your commitment isn’t powerful enough, you’ll end up like every other person who makes a New Year’s resolution and gives up too quickly and reverts to sleepwalking through poor choices."

Darren Hardy


"Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly."

Stephen R. Covey
