Self Motivation Quotes

Self motivation quotes should be all around you. 

In everything we do, we need self motivation.  In some instances, motivation comes naturally, in others is a complete struggle to motivate yourself.  However, in all cases, it comes down to the desire you have for your particular goal. 

Only you know what it is you want to achieve at this particular moment in time, and only you can decide whether or not you have the best motivation to reach your goal.

Profound self motivational quote

“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own.  No apologies, or excuses.  No one to lean on, rely on or blame.  The gift of life is yours; it’s an amazing journey; and you alone are responsible for the quality of it”.     This quote is by Dan Zadra, a businessman and inspirational writer.

The great Napolean Hill

When you take responsibility for your actions, only then will your life have meaning and purpose.  The best self motivation tip that anyone can give you is one from Napoleon Hill.

“Don’t wait, the time will never be just right”.

Procrastination is a killer for anyone wanting to achieve anything, be it weight loss, a job at work, revising, starting a new business, and Napoleon Hill hits the nail on the head with the quote above.

Self motivation is all about inspiring yourself to ACT, and ACT NOW – not tomorrow, next week or next month, but NOW.  In order for you to ACT NOW, you have to have a purpose and desire. Take this one self motivation quote as a perfect example.

“There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants and a burning desire to possess it”.

I’m always going on about a burning desire.  If you’ve never possessed this burning desire within, you’ll find it difficult to relate to. 

Once you do experience this desire, which is so strong that nothing will get in your way in order to achieve what you want, then you’ll understand why it is so important to have this in order to see you through to the end of your goal.  In fact, you’ll probably wonder how on earth you ever managed to get along without goal setting and motivation

Whatever you do, these self motivation quotes will inspire you to act on something every day.  Little step by little step will see you achieve your end result.

Tips for motivation

Here are some self motivation quotes which will make you understand why, by taking daily action on your goals, you will achieve.

“Everyday do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow” – Doug Firebaugh

“Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out”   -  Robert Collier

“You are what you think about all day long”   -  Dr Robert Schuller.

Day in and day out you’ll creep closer to your goal, but along the way you may come across obstacles that hinder and hold you back.  Never give up though – this is where motivational words come in – they give you that little reminder of your purpose, remember the Napoleon Hill quote above?

Fire up your motivation

Remember that you are not alone in your quest to succeed (at whatever it may be, big or small goals).  There are countless others in the same situation as you are, looking for self motivation quotes, tips and techniques.  Searching for motivational ideas and theories are plentiful.  But actually learning how to act on these dreams means you need to take personal action.

“Build upon your strengths, and weaknesses will gradually take care of themselves”  - Joyce C Lock

“Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself and dares to become involved with experimenting with his own life”    -  Herbert Otto

“Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure”  - Napoleon Hill

And finally I want to leave you with this motivational quote, because at the end of the day, the only one who is going to succeed with your dream is YOU.

“Be yourself – there is something that you can do better than any others.  Listen to the inward voice, and bravely obey that”.  -  Unknown.
