10 of the Best Quotes on Success and Motivation

Posted by


Sometimes it's hard to stay motivated and keep focused on your goals. Sometimes, when I am feeling discouraged or ready to throw in the towel, I try to take a moment and remember why I set the goal in the first place. From there, I get fresh motivation to keep on working through the challenge.


It's also helpful to pick a favorite quote from someone who has acheived their dreams. Select one that really speaks to you, inspires you and makes you smile. These are the ones that you can put on your coffee cup, send to yourself or put on the wall, just to keep you on the right path.



If you don't have a favorite success quote, here are 10 of mine:
