Words can motivate you to take action when you’re feeling down. There are quotes and sayings that give you inspiration. They inspire you to take the necessary actions required by your goals. Here are some inspirational quotes that will inspire you to take action:
“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.”
This is a great quote because it points to the importance of action. You can’t wait for that stroke of inspiration to hit you before you get started. You have to take action before you can get tangible results. Your success is based on consistent action, not lucky breaks or opportunities that materialize out of thin air without any effort on your part. This reminds me of another quote by Ann Landers: “Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don’t recognize them.”
Take an action-oriented approach towards achieving your goals. Never allow yourself to slip into a passive state where you wait for something good to happen before taking the next step. Sometimes you may not feel like you have all the answers you need to move forward. But if you believe and step forward anyway, then you will experience pleasant surprises known as opportunities and good breaks.
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: what matters is the courage to continue.”
Remember it’s not over until you say it is. You can do anything you set your mind to if you persevere until you achieve what you set out to do. Failure is part of the journey, but it is never fatal or final unless you allow it to be.
Learn from your mistakes and make them the foundation for your success. With every failure you gain experience. You learn what not to do. When you replace the wrong actions with the right ones, you improve your results. Do it long enough and you’ll become proficient.
Remember that the most joy is not the destination, but the journey. We grow and change mostly when we pursue our goals. You must have the courage to keep going despite obstacles and setbacks. When you get what you want, you’ll feel good about yourself. You’ll be glad you paid the price to get what you wanted. But it is the person you have become that will matter most to you over time.
