Motivational Quotes

Motivational Quotes can help us stay on track when we feel like giving up. Each and every day we must choose again to continue on our journey to success.

As Thomas Edison so rightly put it, “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

So pick a motivational quote that revs you up, write it down and carry it with you. If you feel yourself backsliding and thinking I just can’t do it…take out your quote and read it over until you feel a smile on your face and a song in your heart ;o)
