My goal with this collection of 30 motivational quotes (one for every day of the month) was to assemble the greatest collection of the best personal development quotes ever to appear in one place online.

Did I succeed?

Of course not, haha!

But I absolutely guarantee that wherever you're at in your life at this moment, there is at least one saying in here that will stir a little something inside of you, will make something click in that wonderful brain of yours, and just might possible make you shift your feet beneath your chair a little (your subconscious' way of saying, "Let's get out of here and get something done today!").

Something here will speak to you today.

And a quote that you casually overlook today will speak to you next Tuesday, because you don't need it now, but you will need it then.

And a couple weeks from today? Well, maybe you might want to bookmark this post so you can revisit it from time to time.

Happy browsing! =)

  • Joe Frazier

      Well, I don't know much about signs, Bill. But I do believe that hard-working writers deserve some R&R from time to time. Maybe you and Bev need a mini vacation? Some place with wine and cheese and zero internet haha.

      And by wine...I mean...uh...sturdy grape juice.

      Sorry...forgot. =)
