So today I came across a few really inspirational quotes. So I thought I'd share them with everyone and see if anyone has any more good ones!

The quote I saw was "A year from now you'll have wished you started today."

Another one I saw once was "The number 1 reason why people give up so fast is because they tend to look at how far they still have to go instead of how far they have gotten."

Feel free to share what quotes have been helping you!!

I have one on my computer that says "dripping water eats through stone" and it's a reference to patience and perseverance

"For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again." - Eric Roth

"Think training is hard? Try losing." - Nike

"At the end of the day your health is YOUR responsibility." - Jillian Michaels

Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow’.
Mary Anne Radmacher

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
Thomas A. Edison

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right.
Henry Ford

It’s not who you think you are that holds you back; it’s who you think you’re not.

There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstances permit. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.

I always love the one I see about choosing your hard in signatures around here. Something along the lines of "Being fat is hard. Losing weight is hard. Choose your hard."

I don't think this one qualifies as inspirational, but it makes me smile every time: “The road to success is dotted with many tempting parking places.” ~Unknown

I love the one about the tempting parking spaces....I actually have it as part of my signature :)

"All the concepts about stepping out of your comfort zone mean nothing until you decide that your essential purpose, vision and goals are more important than your self-imposed limitations."

“Never trade what you want the most for what you want at the moment”

“If we defend our habits, we have no intentions of quitting them”

"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference"

Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself; do not go out and look to duplicate a successful personality.
~ Bruce Lee

When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be
Patanjali, Yoga teachings

In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they're still beautiful.
Alice Walker

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it.
If you don't ask, the answer is always no.
If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.
Nora Roberts

Under certain circumstances,
profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer.
