Be Inspired

20 Quotes to Aid Inspiration

Whether you are a businessperson, an entrepreneur, a student or a social media marketer it is very natural to feel a lack of motivation and a lack of enthusiasm about what you do or about how you optimise your time, from time to time. That is a natural state, and if you didn’t feel demotivated at times you would not be human.


Irrespective of who you are, you will be hit by demotivation, and as a result it is natural to look for motivation elsewhere.


One of the best ways to find some motivation is from a quote from a successful person to give you that kick in the right direction you need. I have some of the following quotes on postcards around my office and my workplace in particular, so when I feel down or demotivated I have inspiration at hand to lift me and get me back on track.


A couple of weeks ago we spoke about being stuck in a rut and I offered 10 ways to find your motivation and your inspiration. Read "Inspiration - 10 Ways to Find Inspiration" here. In the blog post we spoke about changing your routine, your environment, your horizon etc and offers bits of advice to help you find a new source of inspiration.


Well, once you have found your inspiration, it is important not just to keep it, but to keep it fresh. So, today I'd like to share with you twenty quotations that I find very useful in keeping the inspirational juices flowing. In fact, I like to keep these quotes placed conveniently around my office, so I always have a source or reminder of inspiration close at hand.


You can download a convenient postcard sized pdf of the 20 quotes here. Just print them off and voila, you have a readymade font of inspirational quotes to place strategically around your office.


"A man who does not plan long ahead will find trouble at his door". - Confucius

I could have spent some time explaining what the quotes mean to me, but I feel the idea of motivation and inspiration is what you get from the words, not me putting my thoughts into your mind and my words into your mouth. What moves me will be different to what moves you, and the places I find inspiration are different than your inspiration locations. So, this is a very simple post, just the quotes and a picture.


Here are my top twenty quotes which keep me motivated and also help to inspire me, when dark clouds roll in.


Let me know in the comments which is your favorite quotation and why you liked it.
