Sometimes, we all need a push in the right direction or motivation to make us get up and do what we need to get done. Especially since remote jobs and school, we have all gotten used to being lazy and wasting all our time on social media. So, what are the motivating quotes I use to motivate myself? While I might not always be motivated by these and get my work done, it works most of the time. And these might work for you too. Here are a few inspirational quotes on my list : 


Inspirational Quote #1

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

– Thomas Edison

I agree with Thomas Edison that giving up gets you nowhere. Often, I want to give up when I just don’t get something right. It might be small actions or really big life-changing actions. It doesn’t matter. When you feel like giving something up, try just one more time and you might get what you want. It never hurts to try.

Inspirational Quote #2

There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self .

– Aldous Huxley

Aldous Huxley is right. Self-improvement is important in everyone’s lives. If you are not better than how you were a year ago, what did you do all this time? Self-improvement can start with just daily habits. Being grateful, moving your body, eating healthier, saving money and so much more. If you improve even one thing you do today, you will be a different person tomorrow. Self-improvement doesn’t just improve you, it also motivates you. 

Inspirational Quote #3

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

– Helen Keller

If you don’t believe in yourself, who is? The first person to believe in yourself should be you. If you don’t have hope that your life is going to get better, it is not. Only people with hope will take the next step forward and reach the end. When you’re trying something new, be confident. Trust me, it changes so much. 

Inspirational Quote #4

A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.

– George S. Patton

It is true. You never know what is going to happen next week so do what you have to do right now. No time is better than the present. Doing your homework right now even if you can’t solve a few questions is better than pushing it until next week after it’s due. If you finished it earlier, you could’ve asked your teacher for help. But now that it is already due, and you still haven’t understood anything, your class is just moving on without you. 

Inspirational Quote #5

The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.

– Unknown

I don’t know who said this, but they are correct. The past already happened. Unless you have the power to go back in time, you are not changing anything that happened. But you do always have a choice for your future. Instead of sulking about your past and wasting time in the future, try to fix it or just move on. Even if you start now, you can still change your future. 

Inspirational Quote #6

You never win if you never begin.

– Helen Rowland

If you are never going to start what you want to do and just keep saying you will do it tomorrow, you will never get there. If an athlete keeps avoiding practice, do you think they will be able to go out there and win or at least give their best effort? Even if you have procrastinated all this time, start now. It’s not too late.

Inspirational Quote #7

Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th.

– Julie Andrews

You might be astonished at someone for their talent and feel ashamed of yourself for not getting something right the first time. But what you do not see is their hard work and failures and getting back up even when they don’t feel like it. Nobody can get something right the first time, they have to keep trying over and over again, giving their best every single time until they finally achieve their goal. So you need to do that too.
