In life, I’ve often found that with a little searching, the things I need manage to appear. In times of fear or doubt, it’s easy to become worried or anxious about our lives. However, as much as you doubt yourself now, it’s incredibly likely that someone out there, past or present has gone through the exact same situation as you, and got through it. The reason why I love quotes so much, is that they can often relate to or shed light on my current situation. Whether it’s the security of knowing I’m not alone, or being able to read something written by someone who has achieved great success, quotes always manage to pick me back up.
Whether written by an artist, entrepreneur or a writer, these quotes all share the motivation I need most in my times of need. The realisation that even the greatest of minds have shared similar struggles, helps to bring reassurance and clarity into my mind. As a reminder that success is possible, no matter your current situation, I hope these quotes inspire you to keep chasing your dreams no matter how you feel about them right now.
- “I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.” – Frida Kahlo
In this unique, diverse world, it can be easy to feel isolated and unrelated to anyone else. Whether we have different goals, opinions, or see the world in different ways, it’s easy to feel separated from others. It is this quote by Frida Kahlo that helps keep me going when I don’t agree with everyone else. This quote reminds me that it’s okay to feel this way, and with so many people in the world, I’m sure someone out there is likely to feel the same way as I do.
- “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.” ― Steve Jobs
If you’re starting a new venture, opening a business, or moving away, it can be easy to doubt it’s success – no matter how much you feel your decision is right. The future is out of our control. This quote reminds me to focus on the present and stay motivated about my current position. If you look back now, you’ll be able to find at least two dots from your past that connect you to here. Feel positive where you are stood, as your journey lead you there. Know that with the right intentions, you could look back on this day as a dot that lead to the change and happiness you desired in your life.
- “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me.’” ― Erma Bombeck
If you’re religious or not, this quote can be applied to all walks of life. These words can remind us to use, grow and expand our talents to our fullest potential. Our time on this earth is full of possibilities, and we have every chance to take or make, that can bring our utmost success. We live in a world where you can make anything happen. Whatever your dreams are go out there and make them, try them, push them, grow them, live them. Use every urge and inclination you have in your body to live your life in the fullest way, so when it comes to its end, you can look back and feel your time here was complete.
