We all know that action is necessary to get us to where we want to be in life. But dealing with motivational slumps now and then is just part of the game, and all of us have battled with the procrastination monster at one point or another. Finding little tricks and methods of getting ourselves back on track when these things happen is important for keeping ourselves on track and making progress, and one of my favourite ways of doing that is with motivational quotes that really remind me what’s important to me and why I’m doing what I do.
We’re at the start of a new week today, so your challenge on this Motivational Monday is to pick one thing from your task list that you know will move you closer to your dream, and promise yourself that you will do it! To help inspire you to get going, I’ve pulled together a list of 20 of my favourite motivational quotes to inspire that al-important action:
