How Motivation Quotes Can Instigate Change

Updated: Jan 31, 2020

There are so many motivational quotes wondering around social media and and in our brains. Sometimes they might seem sappy and Pollyannaish. “I am not feeling motivated today so why should I say these things?” We ask.

The truth is we really do become what we think. If we perceive something bad is going to happen to us, many times it does. On the contrary, if we believe something good is going to happen this often becomes true as well. Science has affirmed the link between positive effect and its impact on an individual’s motivation and performance.

If we expect the best or we expect the worst, we’re usually not disappointed. Each time we perceive a positive thought it increases our own perceptions of positive expectancy.

For motivation to last it requires constant thinking with daily positive reinforcement.

Surround yourself with positive affirmations and you will initiate change in yourself, in your life and in the lives of others. With these qualities you can motivate and inspire yourself.

Believe in yourself and others will believe in you and you in them.

Most motivational quotes come from learned and successful people and they’re useful in the work place and at home today and throughout the rest of your life. Just as happiness is contagious as you surround yourself with happy people, positive thinking is derived from surrounding yourself with positive quotes.

Many find it helpful to print up several of their favorite motivational sayings and place them where they’ll be seen frequently each day such as on your desk, your computer or on your mirror. What you see each day contributes to what your mind thinks and if you’re thinking it, you are consciously or subconsciously working toward that end.

View motivational quotes day after day, night after night.

Lucretius said,

“Constant dripping hollows out a stone.”

If we persist each day in some small way to achieve our goals then some measure of success will be ours. An old Chinese proverb cautions too, that,

“Talk doesn’t cook rice.”

Too many times we’re all talk and no action.

St. Clement taught,

“If you do not hope, you will not find what is beyond your hopes.”

We must hope and dream but we must also work toward our goal. Constant reminders such as these ever-visible quotes steer us on an unwavering path to completion.

Perhaps one of the strongest motivators and risk takers ever was General George S. Patton who said,

“Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash.”

Quotes to motivate deliver the mental fuel to improve your life’s implementation. Expose yourself to these thought daily. What touches you becomes a part of you.
