21 thought-provoking quotes about motivation


If you’re having problems getting motivated then here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about motivation that will help you.

Motivation is the enthusiasm you have for what you’re doing or what you’d really like to be doing. It’s a burning desire to pursue your dream. It’s the irrepressibility and steely self-belief you possess. Furthermore it’s the certainty that you know what you want and it’s also the determination you have to get it.

Motivation is the magic ingredient that will translate effort into success. You will not succeed unless you’re genuinely enthusiastic about whatever it is you’re doing. You will succeed if you love what you’re doing and it matters to you.

Your desire must be so great that no one can stop you going where you’ve decided to go. If someone closes the door on you, you will climb through the window. If they build a wall to stop you, you’ll climb over it, no matter how high they build it.

If you can’t find a way, you’ll make a way. That’s motivation. Never accept an answer unless it’s the one you want. With motivation you’ll succeed. Without it you cannot succeed.

That’s one opinion of course but here are the 21 thought-provoking quotes about motivation and they reflect the opinions of some of the greatest thinkers.
