20 clever reminders that you’ve got what it takes to succeed

June 10th, 2021

Everyone wants to succeed. All of us live our lives with goals and dreams that we want to achieve someday.

But we know that the journey to success isn’t easy and it doesn’t happen overnight. As you go through your journey, expect obstacles along your way.

When things are going great, remember to give yourself a break and remind yourself of the things that motivate you, just like these 20 inspirational quotes:

1. Stand up again.

Failure is part of life but we can’t deny that it lessens our eagerness to succeed. There are times where we let defeat stop us from achieving our goals and it should not be that way.

When you fail, it’s okay to pause, but never stop yourself from bouncing back.

2. Ironing boards will never be the same in our eyes again.

Who would have thought that ironing boards are actually symbolic? It’s all because of this powerful message. If you’re about to give up something that you’ve been working on for a long time, just remember this quote.

3. Choose the right people.

The people you surround yourself with have a huge impact on you and your journey. That’s why if you want to be successful, you better be with the people who have a positive outlook on life. Of course, also be with the ones who would be happy about your progress and encourage you when you fail.

4. Perfect combo

All of us have big dreams but not all of us are willing to exert huge efforts. The hard work you put into something would always be the source of your success. So if you want to make it big, don’t hesitate to make extra efforts, too.

5. Don’t let negativity eats you up.

Imagine the things that you could do if you are optimistic. For sure, you would make a lot of great things if you are. And of course, it would be the other way around if you let negativity prevails in your life.

6. Work on the present.

Sometimes, we get too focused on the future and our lives in the past to the point that we forget to cherish the present. We should always remember that the things that we do in the present would affect our future a lot and soon, it would be just part of our past.

7. Every journey has a story.

One of the things that always make us demotivated is when we compare our lives to other people. Your journey might not be as beautiful as other people’s right now but just believe that it would be better someday. And what you’re going through right now would always be part of what you will become in the future.

8. Don’t be afraid of change.

No matter what we do, changes would always be part of our journey whether we like it or not. Changes are always beneficial and it makes your journey worthwhile.

9. Stop holding back.

This is for those who are still hesitant to do something for their dreams. If you really want to turn your dreams into reality, you should start working on them now. It doesn’t matter if it’s just a small start, what’s important is you take a risk to begin your journey.

10. The beauty of our journey

Every single one of us has our own journey. One thing is the same, though. All of them can be beautiful so long as we are all willing to take them. Comparing yours to other people’s journey will just ruin your drive to strive hard.

11. Trusting the process is important.

Don’t be too harsh to yourself and avoid being in a hurry to be the best version of yourself. It’s because it might just prolong the whole process and we don’t want that. Those who are successful now probably went through a lot too.

12. Drop the fear.

If you would let fear overpower you, your journey would never begin. Achieving what you want takes action and courage. Failure is part of life and it shouldn’t be the reason why you’re not yet taking action for your dreams.

13. Create your own opportunities.

There are times where we can’t find any opportunities for us and that’s okay. Sometimes, we just need to let our passion and dreams lead us to create our own opportunities. If you want a guide in doing this, you can check this out.

14. “…all in your head”.

Overthinking can do a lot in our lives especially in our journey. What’s worse is it makes us hesitant to do great things. This is one of the reasons why thinking positively is important.

15. Keep on keeping on no matter what.

If you really want to achieve something, you should never stop working on it. There will be problems along the way but those are not reasons to give up. You can even use them as your motivation to work harder.

16. Being optimistic

Not everyone believes in being optimistic. But there are actually great outcomes when you try your best to be positive often. It motivates you and lets you neglect the negative things that might steal your focus.

17. Always know what really matters.

The common mistake that many of us do is listening to what other people say most of the time. Because of this, we tend to please other people even though it already affects us unpleasantly. It’s actually okay to consider what they say so long as you’re aware of what’s right and what really matters.

18. Take risks.

Would you agree with me if I say that staying in your comfort zones won’t ever make you successful? It’s because you will not grow and growth is an essential part of being successful.

19. There are no shortcuts to success!

Reaching your goals means going through a tough and long journey. There is no such thing as shortcuts when you’re reaching your dreams and it doesn’t happen in an instant. Always trust the process.

20. Quitting is only for the weak.

When you always choose to continue no matter how difficult your journey is, it just means that you are brave and strong. Hopefully, you would remain the same and never consider quitting because when you quit, that’s all the end of your dreams.
