Everybody needs a little bit of motivation and inspiration in our lives. Sometimes life simply doesn’t go the way we had planned. It is good to stay positive and move forward with our lives when things don’t go our way. Whether you need some daily inspiration because you have had a lousy day or you need a little extra motivation to get you up and moving to finish your daily workout, there is a little bit of something for everyone if you continue to read on. You are not alone, so hopefully these positive and inspirational life quotes will get you on the right track.
There are many times in our lives where nothing seems to be going right. Whether you didn’t get the promotion you were looking for or maybe you lost your job all together. It is important to remember that for as many times we fail, we succeed just the same.
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” –Michael Jordan
Even people as successful as Michael Jordan understand that it is not always easy to fail. But he also realizes that in order to succeed we have to fail. We would never learn from our mistakes and strive for more in our lives if we didn’t fail at some point. Don’t beat yourself up over it. Accept your failures as part of the process and move on with your life.
Create a Bucket List
Another great thing to do is to create a bucket list. This is not just for individuals who have terminal illnesses, it is for people who simply want to set goals for themselves. Here are some bucket list ideas that will help you set better goals for yourself.
- Go on vacation to a place you have never been before. Europe or a place that is tropical. Go wherever your heart desires.
- Do something adventurous such as ride a motorcycle, skydive, or buy your dream car.
- Go back to college and take a class you have always wanted to take.
- Run a marathon or take dance lessons, anything your heart desires.
Living a fulfilling life takes a lot of hard work but can also be a lot of fun. Take some time to meditate and become centered in your own life. Set goals for yourself so that every day you have something new to look forward to. It only takes a few minutes a day to make things happen for yourself.
