20 Motivational Quotes

I recently have been mixing it up and trying to make a better use of my time.  I have about a 25 minute commute in the morning now and I usually spend most of that time listening to the radio or sitting in silence thinking, wondering and contemplating this wonderful world we live in.  I do say my mantra’s every morning out loud of what I am grateful for, what I am thankful for and how blessed I am and we all are to wake up and live life each and every day.  Last week however, I have been changing it up and have been listening to some podcasts on my drive in and not just any podcast, but motivational life changing podcasts. We all can benefit from some self-help work and a time to better yourself and get your mind right.  If you can get your mind right, believe in yourself, have confidence, set some goals then I believe we can be unstoppable.  Success comes into those who want to work, work hard and are able and willing to put the time in, make sacrifices and learn to grow each and every day.  Invest in yourself every day and it will be the best investment you will ever make.  Read, learn, educate, listen, absorb and ingest as much material as you can to better yourself and make yourself more valuable and success will follow.  Surround yourself with great people who are extremely successful and passionate about what they do, pick their brains and I guarantee their energy is infectious and will spread over to you.

Be your best, try your best, invest in yourself and greatness will be knocking on your door soon.  Have a wonderful Monday everyone!
