It’s a Wednesday – if I want to keep to my goal of blogging at least 3x a week, I need to get crackin – It’s Wednesday already? Time sure flies.
So – the question I ask myself is, how do I stick to a goal when the going gets tough? I love motivational and inspirational quotes to help me keep going. These are the top ten motivational or inspirational quotes I use and have used for myself during my weight loss journey. They are the quotes I go back to again and again when I start to feel downhearted, forsaken and forgotten. Not in any particular order – I start with:
#1 – If it matters you make the time. If it doesn’t you make the excuses.
#2 – Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, “What? You to! Thought I was the only one.” (C.S. Lewis)
#3 – Standing in an imperfect place is the perfect place to begin and everyday offers the hope of Day One. (I think Ann Voskamp wrote that)
#4 – Believe when you are most unhappy that there is something for you to do in the world. Life is not in vain. Helen Keller
#5 – And will you succeed” Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three quarters percent guaranteed – Dr. Seuss
#6 – When you do the uncommon things in life in an uncommon way you will command the attention of the world – George Washington
#7 – Just because something is difficult doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try it – it means you should try harder.
#8 – Discipline is recognizing what has to be done, doing it as well as you can do it and doing it that way all the time. It involves trying to do your best every time. From the book The Power of Negative Thinking: An Unconventional Approach to Achieving Positive Results by: Bob Knight (I have 50 Burpees I need to get done)
#9 – Victory is the sum total of a whole lot of wise decisions, sacrificial decisions, that I make – choice by choice, day by day
#10 – I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me! – Dr. Seuss
That’s all folks – Porky Pig
