To Be Or Not To Be Positive, 30 Positive Motivational Quotes!

Secret to success

A few weeks back I wrote a post about how to be an inspiration to others because in order to be successful in life you must keep a positive outlook on things. I wanted to expand on this some more and bring you even more motivational quotes. So many people get to working on something with positive thoughts and then when things get tough they lose that positivity and just give up. This is something that happens to us There will be obstaclesall but if you want to be successful you can’t give in to negativity but push threw it. You never know exactly how close you are to success. In order to keep moving forward you have to keep the end in mind no matter how hard things get or how impossible things seem to become. I have found that reading positive motivational quotes each day can really help to keep the mind from presenting those negative thoughts and emotions.

Think of history, from the time of the Roman Empire till now, before every great battle is fought the general or commanding officer will give his battalion a motivational speech to inspire them. No matter how tired or weary the army was, when their commanding officer spoke those words it would lift up their spirits and give them the strength they needed. You must do this everyday to keep yourself focused on the task at hand in order to be able to reach your end goal. When you feel negativity rearing it’s ugly head then look for something that will bring you inspiration, whether it be a quote, picture, or even a video. Find that one thing that will keep you inspired and use it to fight off negativity and you will be successful in what ever you do.

Here is a list of 30 quotes I have compiled for you to help keep you positive:

  1. “Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life–think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.” —Swami Vivekananda
