Does anyone else have those days where Monday feels like Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday all rolled-up into one? And you’re wondering why Friday hasn’t come yet? We want you to start this week off on a positive note, feeling empowered and ready to conquer everything that comes your way! While you read through these five inspirational quotes, choose one to have as your personal mantra throughout the week. You just may be surprised at how much it influencers you for good!
There are some weeks where our striving for progress turns into an obsession over perfection. This quote is a reminder that perfection is not the goal. Let yourself accept and celebrate your successes, however big or small. Let yourself make mistakes, forgive yourself, and learn from them. Take on challenges hoping for the best and knowing it won’t be perfect all the time. By focusing on making progress, life will be a lot more satisfying.
When we only do things we’re familiar with in order to minimize stress and risk, we also minimize our potential. Choose one of your idols, whether it be historical or personal, and tell us, did they accomplish something admirable by playing it safe and remaining in familiarity, security and certainty? Chances are they didn’t. Stepping out of your comfort zone and into discomfort of uncertainty will typically reap the biggest rewards. So if you find yourself drawing back to your natural comfort zone, we challenge you to let yourself learn, grow, and try new things - no matter the risk.
It can often feel like we don’t have a lot of control during this journey we call life. However, our ability to make our own choices throughout life is definitely in our control -- it’s one of our greatest powers. This quote reminds us that life has a lot of opportunities and paths for us to choose from. What really matters are our own choices, and owning up to those choices we make.
This quote is a reminder of hope. Even if we are experiencing something awful, there is hope that something beautiful can come of it. We’ve met countless women who have experienced trauma, heartbreak, loss and incredible suffering but each of these women have grown into someone extraordinary. Their hardships had meaning and they pulled through them to find that they shaped their lives for the better. Your hardships have meaning too, and as you pull through them, your life will also be shaped for the better.
How many of us are working and waiting for that big dream, trip, or experience? Sometimes in the middle of all our hard work, we forget what we’re working for. This quote is the best kind of reminder of why we’re doing all we’re doing. So if you have forgotten why you’re working long hours, giving it your all, and feeling exhausted every night, remember that you did what you needed to get where you need to be tomorrow.
We hope you found something that stood out and will stick with you. It's your time to shine this week! May you find meaning, progress, and happiness this week! 😘
