10 Motivational Quotes That Will Inspire You

The way you think and feel about yourself, including your beliefs and expectations about what is possible for you, determines everything that happens to you. When you change the quality of your thinking, you change the quality of your life, sometimes instantly. We all know that this is better said than done because some days we all need a little pick-me-up. We all need a dose of motivation from time to time and today I will share ten motivational quotes that can inspire anyone for any aspect of life. Read on and remind yourself of the amazing things that are in store for you (or forward them on to a friend in need of a boost). Then, go forward, and continue striving for greatness.


  1. “People, Who Are Crazy Enough To Think They Can Change The World, Are The Ones Who Do.”


  1. “We Generate Fears While We Sit. We Overcome Them by Action”


  1. “Whether You Think You Can or Think You Can’t, You’re Right.”


  1. “Successful people are great at dealing with uncertainty and also very good at minimizing risk”


  1. “If you are not willing to risk the usual you will have to settle for the ordinary.”


  1. “You Are Never Too Old To Set Another Goal Or To Dream A New Dream.”


  1. “Good things come to people who wait, but better things come to those who go out and get them.”


  1. “The whole secret of a successful life is to find out what is one’s destiny to do, and then do it.”


  1. “If you want to achieve excellence, you can get there today. As of this second, quit doing less-than-excellent work.”


  1. “People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.”

About Jay Colby

Some would categorize me as an entrepreneur, life coach, son, friend and all of the above. I’m just another person trying to find my way in this world. Until recently, I was unsure what my path in this life would consist of. Like many others I was between I know what I want to do but not sure if that’s what I’m supposed to do. I am currently finishing my degree in something that has nothing to do with becoming a writer or entrepreneur so automatically it qualifies me to become one right! Follow me as I go through this journey called life to impact and encourage one person at a time.

    I like this one in particular:

    “We Generate Fears While We Sit. We Overcome Them by Action”

    It resonates with how I deal with life right now. As someone who gets anxious a lot, I get paralyzed with overthinking. It’s a struggle that I deal with by telling myself “Just do it.” haha!
