I don’t know about you, but I love looking up quotes to get me inspired for day to day activities or even a big event. Whatever your purpose be, here are 5 inspirational quotes that I love!
“Be the change you want to be in the world” – Gandhi
You’re probably reading this thinking, Ali really? Everyone knows this quote. You’re right, its a very popular quote, but if you think deeply about the meaning its really powerful. If you hate liter, instead of walking down the street cursing the people of the earth who throw their trash on the ground, you can pick it up and throw it away instead. If you want world peace, then always be kind. I need to work on this one personally because I tend to mind my own business and not reach out and meet people.
“Never regret being a good person, to the wrong people. Your behavior says everything about you, and their behavior says enough about them.” -Marc and Angel
I love this quote, because often times we will try to be friends with someone and we are nice to them and we care for them, and they turn around and stab us in the back, and you can’t help but feel bad for trusting them and being nice to them. But don’t. Your kindness shows a lot about your character and them not appreciating it shows theirs.
“If you want to be powerful, educate yourself.” -Unknown
If you only get one thing out of this post, let it be this. If you want to be successful, powerful, productive, inspiring, etc. YOU HAVE TO EDUCATE YOURSELF. Now this isn’t me saying you have to go to school, or college, or classes, but you have to educate yourself somehow. I recommend reading books, watching youtube videos, reading blogs, researching whatever topic you’re trying to learn more about, watching documentaries, and so much more. There is so much information out there in the world and you should get an itch to learn everything there is to learn about anything, and never stop striving to learn.
“Work while they sleep. Learn while they party. Save while they spend. Live like they dream.” -Unknown
This is one that I am trying hard to take into affect in my own life. I have started waking up at five o’clock every morning to get some things done that I wouldn’t have time to do later in the day. I read, work on my blog, post on my social media, and just mark things off of my to do list. When I get home for the day, I read and work. I have also cut back on spending my money on irrelevant things. I am doing anything and everything I can to make my life exactly what I want it to be.
“Unsuccessful people make decisions based on their current situations. Successful people make decisions based on where they want to be.” -Unknown
I chose to share this quote with you guys because I find so much satisfaction knowing that if I work hard now, eventually things are going to line up and work for me. But instead of sitting back and waiting for that to happen I am going to enjoy the process, because if I didnt enjoy the process, the next few years of my life would be completely miserable, and that is no way to live your life.
I hope these quotes inspired you to get up and do something today.
