I have always been an avid reader. Reading was my favorite activity growing up and my freshman year in high school, I started collecting quotes. (Yes, I was really cool. hahahaha!)
Quotes from my favorite novels, quotes that I would come across that really spoke to me, etc.. I wrote them all down in an orange notebook. This is one of the few things I saved over the years, despite moving around… a lot!
A couple weeks ago, I went into my file cabinet to grab my quotes notebook. I found a bunch of things, but not the notebook. So started a little hunt. After searching every place I could think of, I finally found it yesterday evening! I’m very excited because now I can share all of my favorite inspirational quotes with all of you! 🙂
Today I will share my top 8 quotes to inspire success!
“It’s better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one, than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.”
“Don’t waste life in doubts and fears; spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour’s duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
“I should never have made my success in life if I had not bestowed upon the least thing I have undertaken, the same attention and care that I have bestowed upon the greatest.”
“Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.”
“Put your heart, mind, intellect, and soul even to your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.”
“When you get right down to the root of the meaning of the word, succeed, you find that it simply means to follow through.”
“The thing I remember best about successful people I’ve met all through the years is their obvious delight in what they’re doing.”
“To laugh often and much to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Have an amazing week friends!
