Today’s article is going to be a little different from the ones I usually share here. Most of the blogs here are tutorials, training courses or other helpful tips, but I feel this is an important piece to share with you. So, I’m going to give you eight inspirational quotes that you absolutely must hear, to help you succeed and stay motivated.
“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on when there seemed to be no hope at all” – Dale Carnegie
How many of us have experienced this feeling? I know that I for one have given up and felt like there was no hope on more than one occasion. But those who succeed continue on and keep going even though they may want to give up. I’ve said this often in my videos and podcasts, and I will say it again; keep going!
“There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.” – Roger Staubach
This quote is very self-explanatory and one I’ve always really enjoyed. This is the road to success, and any extra effort you put in will get you there faster. Those who succeed always go the extra mile.
“I am who I am today because of the choices I made yesterday.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
If you follow my Profit Copilot videos, blog posts and podcasts, you’ll know that I like to repeat the phrase, “do something today that you’re going to be thankful for tomorrow”.
Tomorrow might actually be six months down the road, but this reinforces my belief in that expression, and the results I’ve seen reinforce it as well. When you make a choice and act today, you will see the positive impact of that choice, whether it be tomorrow or weeks or months later. Action always pays off, but if you don’t act, you can never truly achieve anything.
“Success isn’t always about greatness it’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.” – Dwayne Johnson
Success isn’t always about greatness, it’s about consistency. I talk about consistency so much in my videos and my podcast because I believe that I am a product of that. Its only through the consistent work that I put into my websites and businesses that I gain the results and success I want. Remember this one when taking on ventures of your own.
“You are your greatest asset. Put your time, effort and money into training, grooming, and encouraging your greatest asset.” – Tom Hopkins
This is an important one because it encourages you to educate yourself. All of us need to continue our education. Think about the last training course that you purchased or enrolled in. Did you complete it fully? Did you implement it all? If not, don’t start another until you have gone through and utilized and gotten the maximum you can out of what you are already learning. I’ve seen the rewards one can gain by doing this. You must keep training yourself, and although that may take time and money, it’s worth it all in the end. You are bettering yourself and your situation when you educate yourself.
“When you do more than you’re paid for, eventually you’ll be paid for more than you do.” – Zig Ziglar
This quote reinforces the fact that, when we put in the hard work during the beginning stages of a project, it will pay off in the end. When it comes to content marketing, putting in a lot of time and effort will lead to greater results and revenue, with less work being done over time.
“People who say it cannot be done, should not interrupt those who are doing it.” – George Bernard Shaw
How many times have you seen these negative Nellie’s on the internet these haters and trolls criticizing people who are busy building their business busy doing it you’ve probably experienced it too I experienced it all the time and what do we do we just gotta laugh at those people say well hey they contribute whatever they can and if all they’ve got is negativity and cynicism fine that’s what they can contribute just mean I have to go down to that level doesn’t mean it affects me or my journey
“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” – Tim Notke
I interpret this as saying you can succeed even if you don’t have the world-class skills that some others may have in your field. You can achieve success through hard work and a little bit of strategic thinking. Now, I do know that hard work alone isn’t going to get you as far as you want it to. You’ll also need to plan and to educate yourself as some of the other quotes in this post have discussed.
“If your teacher, coach or mentor believes you can do something, you’re more likely to do it.” – Gwen Morgan
Let’s think about this quote for a second. If someone believes in you -someone who has achieved what you want to achieve or has the ability to show you how to be successful where you want to be successful- then you are more inclined to go ahead and do exactly what you need to do, to get to where you need to be. Believing in yourself is one of the greatest keys to success that you can learn. And having a more successful individual who also believes in you, is a huge help in gaining that ability to believe in and trust your skills and abilities.
I believe everything in life is a cycle.
This cycle starts with how we perceive the world and how we perceive ourselves. This forms our core belief system, and sometimes that belief system is also determined by the results we see, which are often due to the action we take toward our goals.
If you want to change your beliefs, especially in your own abilities (and you must!) then you need to change your actions. Actions then change results, results change beliefs, so on and so forth. If you are experiencing failure frequently, you may start to believe you yourself are a failure, but this is simply not true.
So many of us are often in this state of mind where nothing works, feeling as though everything we do is failing, and as strange as it sounds, that’s completely normal. Failure is a part of the journey to success. Successful people have failed many, many times before they achieved their goals. So, if you ever feel this way, just remember; the more failure you have behind you, the closer you are to reaching your goals!
Always acknowledge the small wins and the small victories. These victories compound over time and you’ll begin to notice that they are leading you to bigger accomplishments, and in time; the success you’ve been working so hard to achieve. Give yourself time to celebrate these victories, no matter the size.
I hope these quotes I’ve shared with you have given you a better perspective of yourself and the road to success. As always, I offer more videos and tutorials on the Profit Copilot YouTube channel as well as blogs and helpful articles on the website.
