What positive motivational quote can best quench your thirst for success? My favorite is by the great Thomas Edison who said, "I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work".
How many times in our lives do we look back on our own "so called failures" and think of doom and gloom when it comes to finding some kind of motivation or inspiration to lead us out? This one positive motivational quote by Thomas Edison will repair the error. Just like Edison said, we have not failed, we have just found many, many different ways that will not work for us.
How many jobs have you been through that were not right for you? Did you learn something from each one that lead you to where you know you need to be? Those jobs were not "failures" as you may have thought, they were just stepping stones on the great walk of life to lead you to your divine purpose.
I cannot even count the number of jobs I have had that I once thought of as some type of defeat. I had once thought to myself, "Why did I waste so many months or even years in that particular job when I knew it wasn't right for me?" This would lead to despair of thinking that those times were a waste in my existence. Happily, I now know they were of Life teaching me a lesson that I had to learn. How about you?
Is your soul thirsty? Does it ache for a new beginning? We at Motivational Good Reads can offer you just that with these positive motivational quotes.
The French writer Jean-Pierre de Caussade said this, "If we wish to quench our thirst, we must first lay aside books which explain thirst and take a drink". Caussade's perceptive and clever quote is a straight forward way of calling us to action.
Thinking back to some of the jobs I have had to endure, I did one thing that made it all bearable. When I was at the end of my rope in a particular field, I would write down on my calendar the month I would give my two week notice. At times the particular date. This would shed a ray of hope in my life that one day soon I would be rid of this. Why did I wait so long? Why do you wait so long? I did so because I thought of my resume. I thought that I had to stick with a particular job a certain length of time so it would look good on a job resume. Now I do not need a resume. My work and my talent speak for itself. I do not need a piece of paper to show someone to get me to where I want to be. I am where I want to be because I have put myself there. No one else did this for me!
President John F. Kennedy on June 10, 1963 said, "Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by man. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings". This one positive motivational quote encompasses everything. We alone are responsible for our unwelcome situations and in the same way able to discover through many learned lessons the answer to our plight.
As you struggle with your own particular predicament, your own unpleasant situation, where do you see yourself? Where do you want to be? Mohandas Gandhi said, "What you think, you become". Gandhi also said, "The future depends on what we do in the present". What are you doing right now to change your life? The essential fundamental and pivotal aspect of all this is that you must "do" something. You have it in you! You can change your life! Let's do this together.
Another favorite motivational quote that will lead you from some dismal activity that you are currently performing in exchange for payment, i.e. your "job", is from the wonderful comedian, Carol Burnett, who said, "Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me".
If you think of your present job as time taken away from you in exchange for money, it may shake up some emotions to get you on the proper path and into the right line of work. You are selling your time and pieces of yourself. Don't you think your time is worth more than you are getting paid for right now? Why not make it worth something grand. Find your passion and make it your purpose. Then take action and put it into your own self made profession. Now your time is valuable and you are getting paid what you think you deserve.
What you think you become, so let's think of ways to get where we need to be in order to make the kind of money we need to be making. It all starts with our thoughts. Let's use our minds to get there. Your thoughts will create the things you have been imagining and visualizing. Your thoughts become the actual thing. You can do this!
