“Slipping backward? You may be backing up to get a running start”
– Dan Millman
Even if you find yourself being pulled backward, it’s just a minor setback that’s preparing you for a huge leap! Don’t get discouraged by a small step back. Instead, keep working hard and prepare for your opportunity to shine! Just like the rest of these inspirational mantras, this one will give you a boost.
“If you are always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be”
– Maya Angelou
Especially when we’re young, we’re always trying to fit in and be ‘normal’, but you need to learn to embrace what makes you different and play it to your strengths!
“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line”
– Lucille Ball
Be true to yourself and not trying to be someone else, loving yourself will lead to higher self-confidence, and being more comfortable with yourself! Once you love yourself, others will be more drawn to you both personally and professionally.
“Perseverance is failing nineteen times and succeeding the twentieth”
– Julie Andrews
Even if it seems like you’re hitting brick walls time after time, it only takes that one success to pull yourself up! Keep on going and don’t let your past failures dictate your future!
“Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence”
– Vince Lombardi
As much as we all try, no one will ever be perfect. However, if we strive for perfection, we might just land somewhere close (but don’t burn yourself out trying to be perfect, remember to take care of yourself too!).
“Either I will find a way, or I will make one”
– Phillip Sidney
If there doesn’t seem to be a way to get what you want, create the way yourself! Whether that’s starting your own business, or pitching a new idea to your boss, take charge and chase after what you want!
“Do not forget small kindnesses and do not remember small faults”
– Chinese Proverb
A good mantra for relationships, both personal and professional. Don’t get so worked up or hold grudges against small issues, and if someone gives you a small act of kindness, remember it!
“If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves”
– Thomas A. Edison
The biggest inhibitor to your success is yourself. If you’re feeling nervous, thinking you’re not good enough for that job, or you’re scared to ask for that raise, suck up that fear and just go for it! You’ll be astounded by what you can accomplish!
“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present”
– Jim Rohn
Instead of dreaming of that place in time where you’ll finally have what you want, create your happiness now! Go grab that job that you love, surround yourself with great people, and take time for the hobbies you enjoy!
