Motivational Quotes

Motivation, the desire to achieve a goal, is the key to getting things done and obtaining success. As Wayne Gretzky once said, "One Hundred percent of the shots you don't make, don't score." So unless you work on your goals, you will never reach them.

There are many ways of scoring or of reaching your objectives, and what you may consider a success others may consider a failure. But the common denominator is that you must be motivated to do something. Without it, you will sink into apathy and lethargy.

So how can you get motivated? I have found that reading quotes by people who have achieved success allows me to add some of their spark to my own life. Quotes are quotable because they capture and essential truth; so the words of wisdom from people who have achieved success and have been motivated to work harder and longer to make their dreams come true are often short treatises on the subject: you can learn more from a 10 word quote about motivation by someone who knows what they are talking about, than by reading a huge text book. Here you will find a collection of amazing motivational quotes.

      I always knew the quote as: Wherever you are, be there.

      I guess it probably means the same, enjoy the moment, be engaged, don't go through the motions, live the moment, smell the roses... you get the picture!

      Great hub, love quotes myself. Maybe one day I'll be quoted. Now thats not a bad goal to have!

      Thanks for inspiring me to comment.
