Some Favorite Motivating Quotes

Below are a few favorite quotes to keep you motivated the pressing on towards your goal.

For me, quotes are not a “cure-all” but a starting point to great actions. I like to take a quote and think about it for a few days. After considering the quote, I ask myself if it is relevant to any current situation. If the quote is relevant, I ask myself, “How can I apply this quote immediately?”

It has been proven many times, in many tests, if you learn something and do not put it into action, you will lose the knowledge you gain. For me, it is important to put the things I learn into immediate action or I will lose them for good.

Anyway, here are a few favorite quotes for you to enjoy.
