8 min read
Let your faith be bigger than your fears, and your actions louder than your words.

Rise up and attack the day with enthusiasm, for it's another chance to do better.

The path to success is to take massive, determined action. Keep moving forward.

Be the spark that ignites the flames of positivity in others.

Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. Belief is your armor.

Every challenge you face today makes you stronger tomorrow. Embrace the struggle.

You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right and strive to be the best, however hard the path.

Encourage yourself, believe in yourself, and love yourself. Never doubt who you are.

Believe you can and you're halfway there. The other half is to act.

Your journey will be much lighter and easier if you don't carry your past with you.

Every morning brings new potential, but if you dwell on the misfortunes of the day before, you tend to overlook tremendous opportunities.

Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they never give up.

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. Success will follow.

Small steps in the right direction can turn out to be the biggest step of your life.

A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.

Change your thoughts and you change your world.

Inner strength is found when you decide that giving up is not an option.

The journey may be tough, but your spirit is tougher. Don't forget how hard you've worked to get here.

Remember, the expert in anything was once a beginner. Keep learning, keep growing.

When you feel like quitting, think about why you started.

Encouragement is like water to the soul, it makes everything grow.

Feel the fear and do it anyway. Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.

Don't watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.

Every moment is a fresh beginning. Make each one count.

Never underestimate the power of a few encouraging words.

If you light a lamp for someone else, it will also brighten your path.

Hope is the heartbeat of the soul.

It's not about perfect. It's about effort. And when you bring that effort every single day, that's where transformation happens.

Your life is your message to the world. Make sure it's inspiring.

Be gentle with yourself. You're doing the best you can.

Instead of saying "I can't," try saying "I'll try." Watch how your life changes.

One positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.

The darkest hours hold the brightest dreams. Keep dreaming.

Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.

When you choose hope, anything’s possible.

A challenge only becomes an obstacle when you bow to it.

Never let the fear of striking out stop you from playing the game.

Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.

Grow through what you go through.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.

In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.

Keep your face always toward the sunshine, and shadows will fall behind you.

Be brave enough to be bad at something new.

Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.

When you can’t find the sunshine, be the sunshine.

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.

The only thing that's keeping you from getting what you want is the story you keep telling yourself.

A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor.

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.

The hard days are what make you stronger.

You have within you right now, everything you need to deal with whatever the world can throw at you.

Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.

Fill your mind with thoughts of peace, courage, health, and hope.

You are stronger than you seem, braver than you believe, and smarter than you think.

Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.

Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and capable of more than you imagine.

Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come.

Your current situation is not your final destination. The best is yet to come.

Encouragement is oxygen to the soul. Breathe deeply and often.

It's not about how badly you want it. It's about how hard you're willing to work for it.

Forget what hurt you but never forget what it taught you.

Believe you deserve it, and the universe will serve it.

If there's even a slight chance of getting something that will make you happy, risk it. Life's too short and happiness is too rare.

You didn't come this far to only come this far.

Only in darkness can you see the stars.

Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

Success is what happens after you have survived all your mistakes.

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.

When you encourage others, you in the process are encouraged because you’re making a commitment and difference in that person’s life.

No matter what you're going through, there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

The struggle you're in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow.

Press forward. Do not stop, do not linger in your journey, but strive for the mark set before you.

There is nothing impossible to those who will try.

Always do what you are afraid to do.

Believe in yourself, push your limits, experience life, conquer your goals, and be happy.

Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you'll be able to see further.

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

Encouragement doesn’t have to be loud or eloquent. It just has to be heartfelt and genuine.

Plant seeds of hope in your heart, nurture them with a smile and a positive thought, and watch your dreams grow.

When you are enthusiastic about what you do, you feel this positive energy. It's very simple.

Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.

Don't wish for it, work for it.

When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.

If you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything. I'm positive that a doer makes mistakes.

Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.

A river cuts through a rock, not because of its power, but its persistence.

You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Your potential is endless. Go do what you were created to do.

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

The greatest act of faith some days is to simply get up and face another day.

Motivation comes from working on things we care about. It also comes from working with people we care about.

Take heart, for every setback is a setup for an even greater comeback!

Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

Enthusiasm moves the world.

Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud.

If you want to fly, you have to give up what weighs you down.

Even if happiness forgets you a little bit, never completely forget about it.

Avoiding failure is to avoid progress.

Life's trials will test you, and shape you, but don’t let them change who you are.

Not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear your path.

Nurture your minds with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think.

We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.

Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.

Show up in every single moment like you're meant to be there.

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.

The most effective way to do it, is to do it.

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

Your desire to change must be greater than your desire to stay the same.

Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after another.

Today is your opportunity to build the tomorrow you want.

Your word is your wand. The words you speak create your own destiny.
