Do you find yourself trying to push through the week by the time you get to the middle of it? We all know that slumpy feeling where we are pretty much stripped of our enthusiasm that comes with a new beginning on Mondays. To add to it, the much awaited weekend seems out of reach. Those wretched Wednesdays can leave you feeling out of sorts; so here we are with 10 quotes that will help make your day brighter and set the rest of the week in momentum!
- It’s the journey, not the finish
“Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.” Greg Anderson
- All is well that ends well.
“When you look back on your life, it looks as though it were a plot, but when you are into it, it’s a mess: just one surprise after another. Then, later, you see it was perfect.” – Schopenhauer
- It’s either this or that.
“Do or do not. There is no try.” –Yoda
- Time to re-visit our perspectives
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” – Marcel Proust
- Specialization is for insects
“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” -Robert A. Heinlein
- Because failure is a stepping stone to success
“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
- Go on, change the world
“The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” – Anonymous
- That’s all it takes and a bit more
“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.” – Theodore Roosevelt
- Just be who you are and do your thing
“Do your thing. Do it every day. And do it unapologetically. Do not be discouraged by criticism. You probably already know what they are going to say. Pay no mind to the fear of failure. It is far more valuable than success. Take ownership, take chances and have fun. And no matter what, do not ever stop doing your thing.” – Asher Roth
- Go slow to go fast
“There is no royal road to anything. One thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly, that which grows slowly endures.” – Josiah Gilbert Holland
