We all admire people who have made something out of their lives. And while we can’t ask them to live our life for us, we can look to their famous inspirational quotes for guidance. We know their words to be truthful, for they have been through struggle and have reached success.
Here are some excellent motivational quotes from successful people we can all learn something from.
Famous Inspirational Quote # 1: “There is no passion to be found when playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you’re capable of living.” - Nelson Mandela
There are many of us who are too afraid to step out of the box to really do something with our lives. And so we end up becoming a shadow of who we really are.
But Nelson Mandela urges us to live life the way it is supposed to be lived! He inspires us to chase after our dreams and our ambitions, no matter how far-fetched they may seem to be.
Famous Inspirational Quote # 2: “Men are born to succeed, not fail.” - Henry David Thoreau
Well, there’s nothing like this motivational quote to boost you up, eh? Henry David Thoreau is our ultimate cheerleader.
Even when we ourselves don’t quite believe in our capabilities, he is there to remind us of what we are capable and made of, and of the heights we are destined to reach. Human civilization has come a long way since the creation of fire. And we have more to contribute to the world yet.
Famous Inspirational Quote # 3: “No one can possibly achieve any real and lasting success or 'get rich' in business by being a conformist.” - J.P. Getty
Those who are different are more likely to make a difference than those who only want to blend in with the background. We’ve always been told that being different is a bad thing.
But J.P. Getty, our champion, is telling us that being different is the only way to get noticed in this world. Those who are decidedly different come up with the most unique ideas and the most creative solutions. Let us put our uniqueness to good use!
These famous inspirational quotes are accounts of those who have not only made it, but of those who have made it big. Let us look to these words for inspiration. Better yet, let’s print these words out and hang them right where we can see them, so we are reminded everyday of what we can do.
