Ten Powerful Quotes That Will Inspire You To Take Action

If you need a little motivation today, you’ve stumbled upon the right article.

That’s the best thing about quotes; they can trigger something within us, make us think and inspire us to take action.

So without further ado

here are ten remarkable quotes that can get you one step closer towards your goals.

#1. “Every life form seems to strive to its maximum except human beings. How tall will a tree grow? As tall as it possibly can. Human beings, on the other hand, have been given the dignity of choice. You can choose to be all or you can choose to be less. Why not stretch up to the full measure of the challenge and see what all you can do?”- Jim Rohn

It seems that every life form on this planet strives toward its maximum potential... except human beings. A tree does not grow to half its potential size and then say,

So ask yourself:

What can I do today, that will make me grow and test my limits, either personally or professionally?

And then take one small step.

Read a page or run a mile. Just go after it.

#2. “Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.” -Cecil Beaton

Biologically we are wired to belong and be a part of the group. The challenge is that most groups usually have a strong repulsion towards something that is strange and different.

Your environment, friends, and even family can sometimes be against what you want to do.

Because of that, you have to believe in yourself and your direction. I am not saying that you should be blind, but sometimes taking a leap of faith is what is needed.

Say Yes, to Naysayers.

#3. “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”- Muhammed Ali

Go ahead. Turn at least one impossible into possible.

And let that be just the beginning.

#4. “The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.” – Jordan Belfort

The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it. - Jordan Belfort

The idea that we are not living to our potential is so frightening that most people decide not to see where their potential lies.

But that’s not you.

You will go after it; you will try. And here I promise you, I will too.

#5. “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.” – Eric Thomas

These moments are rare, but when you find something that triggers that fire from within, don’t let it go.

Try to build a momentum and maintain it.

In case you haven’t experienced it, define what are you good at, what do you love to do and how can you put those two to good use.

And then just start.

#6. “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” – Samuel Beckett

Fear of failure, one of the most regular things in life. But failure, with the right mindset, will provide us with incredible life lessons that can serve us in the future.

So go ahead, fail and fail forward.

#7. “Be so good they can’t ignore you.” – Steve Martin

Give your best, grow, evolve and be committed.

To me, this quote was never about other people. It was always about me, and in this case about you.

We owe it to ourselves to become so good, to grow, give our best and no matter the results, we will win. And we won’t be ignored.

#8. “At the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets.”- Steve Maraboli

Everything that happened to you, it shaped you into the person you are today.

Both the positive and the negative, we are the ones that give meaning to certain things, so decide from now on to give positive meaning to everything that you encounter.

Yes, in the given moment, it might be difficult.

But in the morning, it’s much easier to see clearly certain things.

#9. Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength. – Arnold Schwarzenegger

I like this one, If you look back on Arnold’s backstory you will become inspired, no matter who said he couldn’t, no matter what stood in his way he stayed determined and pushed through even when all odds seemed against him – that is true strength.

#10. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward! That’s how winning is done!   Sylver Stalone as Rocky Balboa

This is my favorite one of them all, this one always inspires me and makes me want to get out and show the world what I can do.

So remember that it’s not about how hard you can hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward because that’s how winning is done.
