Around this time of year, people start reflecting on what they have accomplished, what they are grateful for and how far they have come. It’s a time for reflection and introspection. As each year comes to a close and people start looking forward to the next, we contemplate how quickly the year has gone by and how the fast approaching new year will be different than the last. The problem is that we don’t take the time to back up and ask these questions each day, week, month and then finally each year. It is the classic case of procrastination, or the idea that we can do it tomorrow. But that’s not the mind of a winner, it’s a mind of a loser, quite frankly. I’m not saying that people who procrastinate are losers. Instead, I’m saying that if we think this way, there is no way we can win on the level we see for our future selves. We all have to wake up. That’s why I gathered 5 quotes that will pick you up. Because life, the future and everything in between doesn’t start tomorrow, it starts TODAY.
So in light of this, let’s make a pact to spend at least part of each day reminding ourselves of this. It will help us stay focused on the big picture. It will help keep us from waking up one day, at the end of the year, thinking where did all the time go. It’s a cycle we must break ourselves. No amount of videos by Tony Robbins or books by the greatest thinkers will get us to where we want to be. We must get ourselves there.
Each week, on Viral Force’s Facebook and Instagram pages, we upload new quotes and bits of inspiration to help with this process. We gather the most inspiring quotes of motivation to help us all on this journey of progress. If you haven’t already, I’d like to invite you to take a look at the pages and find the ones that speak most to you and your journey. Like them, save them, and refer to them often. Use it as a way to keep yourself motivated on your path. There’s some great stuff there and just to prove it, here are a few quotes that have helped me during trying times. I hope they inspire you as much as they inspired me! Be strong, be courageous, but most importantly, don’t quit!
Bruno Mars is not the first person who comes to mind when I think of people who inspire me. In fact, he doesn’t even make my long list. Although, if I’m being honest, some of the most inspiring people I discovered have been those I never saw coming, like mega actor Will Smith or funnyman […]
Procrastination is a huge issue. I might even call it an epidemic. At least this has been the case in my life. I remember being in high school, up at 3 in the morning. I was finishing my paper on some subject in A.P. English, and my best friend called my house (yes, my house) […]
Every once in awhile people get introspective. They start thinking about their lives, asking questions like the following. How did they get to where they are today? Where do they want to go next? What do they want to accomplish in the next 5, 10, 15 or 20 years? These are all questions that come […]
Your Decisions Determine Your Trajectory Every moment of every single day, we make decisions. Some are much bigger than others, of course. But when we remember that we are the sum of our choices, they become much more significant. They determine the trajectory of your life. Where you are right now, is a direct result […]
Jim Carrey is a phenomenal actor and comedian. His films have grossed over one billion dollars throughout the course of his career — so there is no argument that he is successful. But did you know that he is a profound thinker, too? Not only is he one of the most inspiring people, for me, […]
I like to start each day with some type of inspiration — something that takes me from feeling mediocre to feeling like I can get sh*t done, if you know what I mean. I watch YouTube videos, I journal, I meditate, I pray, I do everything and anything that is needed to get me into […]
No one sets out to be mediocre, to be less than, or to be the worst version of themselves. This happens when someone loses the motivation and the drive to make their life better. They get too comfortable, or they don’t do the things that ensure they get to the finish line. So then, you […]
We are too hard on ourselves, period. Most of us set these insane goals that are super difficult to achieve and then get mad when we miss the mark. But how could we achieve something that had unrealistic expectations in the first place? Instead, we should break up massive goals into bite size pieces; but […]
