Motivational quotes to get yourself going

Only in the darkness can you see the stars’ – Martin Luther King Jr

I don’t know about you, but I’m far less motivated to do anything when it’s dark and cold. Here in the UK, it is dark at 4.30 pm and this week it has been COLD!! It’s not even December yet so we have a lot of dark and cold evenings to come. It’s not just going out either. I’m less motivated to do anything at all other than have a nice warm drink and snuggle up with a book or TV programme!

So in an attempt to get myself going, I started looking at motivational quotes. Here are some of my favourites – I hope you find one that gives you a boost too!

‘The secret of getting ahead is getting started’ – Mark Twain

‘If you don’t do it, it won’t get done. And if you don’t do it now, you probably won’t do it at all. Motivation must defeat procrastination. This is a good time to get started’ – Patrick Pinckney

I hope you found something there that helped you get started! Although sometimes wasting time is not such a bad thing:

‘The time you enjoy wasting is not time wasted’ – John Lennon

So the tiny tweak this week is to pick a motivational quote that you like, write it out and put it somewhere where you can see it. I hope it helps!

Until next time xx
