Default Inspirational Quotes

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!!

"Be confident. Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we aren't. Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses, and it is only when you accept everything you are - and aren't - that you will truly succeed." - unknown

"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

and my personal favorite:

"People are fed by the Food Industry which pays no attention to health, and are treated by the Health Industry which pays no attention to food." - Wendell Berry

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 think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it. It's called perseverance. ~ Lee Iacocca

"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.

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


...and one of my favorites:

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

~Mark Twain~
"How does one become a butterfly?" she asked pensively.
"You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar."
~ Trina Paulus, Hope for the Flowers
