Motivational Poems

Updated on March 1, 2013

Motivational Poems

Reading inspirational poems is a great way to help you take action. Many times when we are dealt with setbacks and failures, the drive we had when we set our goal could die off. During these times, what you choose to do will make all the difference in your life. If you do what most people do, that is to give up, you will never experience the life you want. So why is it that most people give up? They do this simply because it's an easier option.

No one ever said success is easy. It may be simple, but it's definitely not easy. Part of the key to success of learning how to keep going despite of setbacks. Everyone who has achieved great success has failed many times. What made them different is that they decided to get back up and keep pressing on. This is what you need to do if you want to have any chance of reaching your dreams. So what can you do during these times?

Poems that Motivate

There are tons of motivational tools out there for you to use to help bring that drive back into your soul. One of them is reading motivation poems. These poems will help you take things into perspective. If you look back at all the times you failed in your life, how do you feel about them. I'm sure you'll feel somewhat disappointed by compared to how you felt when it happened, the feeling is a lot less intense and involved. Looking back at things, perhaps you now feel like you should have just gotten back up and push forward.

This happens often. When we are too involved in the failure, when we focus on it too much, it stops us from figuring out our next step and taking action on it. After some times goes by, since we quit, we forget about it. Looking back now, you can probably come up with some things you could have done to turn things around. The point here is that whatever challenge you may be facing, you can overcome it if you focus on the right things. By using certain motivation tools, it will help you focus on the positive and enable you to be in a better mindset to figure out how to turn things around.

Here is a great motivational poem.

Don't Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,

When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,

When funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.

When care is pressing you down a bit.

Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns

As every one of us sometimes learns.

And many a failure turns about

When he might have won had he stuck it out:

Don't give up though the pace seems slow -

You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out -

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.

And you never can tell how close you are.

It may be near when it seems so far:

So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit

It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

My Comfort Zone

Unknown

I used to have a comfort zone

where I knew I wouldn't fail.

The same four walls and busywork

were really more like jail.

I longed so much to do the things I'd never done before,

But stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.

I said it didn't matter that I wasn't doing much.

I said I didn't care for things like commission checks and such.

I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone,

But deep inside I longed for something special of my own.

I couldn't let my life go by just watching others win.

I held my breath; I stepped outside and let the change begin.

I took a step and with new strength I'd never felt before,

I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.

If you're in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out,

Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.

A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.

Reach for your future with a smile; success is there for you!
