Quotes are great if you know what to do with them. Often people see them on their WhatsApp messages or social media feeds, and they do nothing with them except a like, retweet or a share. These quotes which have become prominent do have a value attached to them if you apply the principles on a daily basis. Not all quotes will mean something to you, but there will be relatable ones. Below are five quotes you should action on a daily basis.
You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take — Wayne Gretzky
We all have goals and targets; some call them resolutions, but if you never try and accomplish them then you will be disappointed and dissatisfied. As the quote says, if you don’t try then you’ll miss out.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world — Gandhi
I read about how a lot of people want to change the world. Big projects are commissioned and billions raised, but it doesn’t seem to be getting any better? If you want to change the world, then start with yourself. Be the change that you need to see; Make sure you make your environment and product of who you are.
We are what we repeatedly do; excellence, then, is not an act but a habit — Aristotle
Set yourself high standards and stick them on a regular basis. The more you practise them, the better you become and the better results that will follow. Habits usually take three weeks to form so be excellent as much as you can in the initial stages, and you won’t have to try later on!
Eighty percent of success is showing up — Woody Allen
Some people never get out of bed; some people do, and they leave their minds at home. That’s why purpose is the biggest motivator for any human, and if you can show up 80% of the time, it means you are living with a purpose. A person without a purpose is one that rarely performs or accomplishes; they live for the weekend!
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken — Oscar Wilde
Try not to imitate or copy people who are successful but use them as a motivational tool to make yourself better. You are unique and have your own identity, gifting and skill-set.
Hope you enjoyed the read and take a serious note of living these quotes out!
