They say that motivation comes from within, but you have to find it first. Whether it’s a painting, a book or a movie, there’s inspiration around every corner. All you have to do is look in the right places.
One surefire source of inspiration is turning to the people you look up to! Knowing what inspires and propels them to do the things they do can reignite the passion we have for our work.
If you need a dose of inspiration, check out these powerful quotes:
1. “Opportunities don’t happen. You create them.” – Chris Grosse
This is the absolute truth. So many people believe that you have to grab the right opportunity to become successful. This is true, to an extent. However, unless you work hard, you’ll never come across such opportunities. You have to keep pushing yourself to get where you want to be.
Success is 98% is hard work and 2% luck. If you want to become successful, work your way up and when you find the right opportunity, go for it.
2. “All progress takes place outside the comfort zone.” – Michael John Bobak
You can’t expect to find success if you’re afraid to take risks. As an aspiring entrepreneur or salesperson, you will have to make on-the-spot decisions. If you’re afraid to try something new or don’t want to take risks, you’ll never be able to grow.
Successful entrepreneurs take the initiative to start their own business, knowing that they might fail. However, they take the chance and work their way up. Some even failed before they succeeded, but they learned from their mistakes.
Either you succeed or you learn. There’s no losing.
3. “You were hired because you met expectations, you will be promoted if you can exceed them.” – Saji Ijiyemi
So many salespeople believe that after they’re hired, they only need to work hard enough to earn a living. If you want to become successful, you need to work hard for it. Otherwise, you’ll be stuck in a rut and you won’t be able to get anywhere.
4. “Alone, we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller
You’re probably used to working alone, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take help from time to time. If you’re the type of person who thinks that working in a team can become a distraction, think again. As a one-man team, you can brainstorm a couple of ideas.
As a proper team, you can brainstorm a hundred ideas.
You never know whose idea will bring success to the organization!
5. “Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” – Will Rogers
Once things start going our way, we start overestimating our success. Never stop learning or working hard. Remember that the knowledge you have right now is just a drop in the ocean. There’s so much to learn and so many people you will meet who’ll teach you more.
If you start procrastinating, someone else will take away what you’ve achieved so far. Remember the Tortoise and the Hare fable? It’s just like that.
