Motivational Quotes from Henry Ford and John Maxwell

The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.

- Anonymous

The whole secret of a successful life is to find out what is one’s destiny to do, and then do it.

- Henry Ford

Success is knowing your purpose in life, growing to reach your maximum potential, and sowing seeds that benefit others.

- John Maxwell

The self-development industry has made a mint on helping others to find their meaning and purpose in life. I’ve realized that the best way to find that purpose is to be more mindful in my actions. By peeking inside, I can offer more to the outside.

Take a moment

If you haven’t yet found your purpose, take a moment to look at the things you’ve done which enrich the lives of those around you. Do that again. For those who have found your purpose, don’t give up.

Motivational Quotes from Aristotle, Steve Jobs and John Ruskin

Quality is not an act, it is a habit

Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort

- John Ruskin

Are you proud of the work that you do? Are you doing your best? Breaking boundaries, taking those extra steps, and daring to dream are what make us the best that we can be. Are you in the moment right now, willing to take intelligent effort?

Take a moment

To think about quality, and the quality of work that you produce. Give someone a little extra bit of yourself and see what happens — you might be surprised.

When I woke up this morning, I couldn’t help but smile at the sunshine peeking through the window.

You can change the world if you just take a moment… a simple, single moment to express yourself.

Take a moment

To let your imagination soar. Draw in a deep breath and think about the silliest, most unconventional things that you can think of. When the smile comes across your face, share it with others.

Motivational Quotes from Kierkegaard, E.E. Cummings, and Audrey Hepburn

Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.

― Søren Kierkegaard

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.

― E.E. Cummings

The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it’s all that matters.

― Audrey Hepburn

In today’s world – with all the money worries, too many things to do, and too little time – being happy may not be as easy as counting 1, 2, 3. Yes it’s hard but, the good news is, we have a lifetime to try… Let’s be happy! Don’t be afraid to fail. Be afraid to look back when you’re old and gray and realize you never tried. Always remember…

Take a moment

Even if you have a pretty good life, you can still have more. You can definitely start building the life you want and be happy. Take a moment to chill out and avoid stress!
