Every person use different ways to motivate themselves. Some people use affirmations, some other peoples use visualization techniques, some people use inspirational books and large number of peoples read motivational life quotes to motivate themselves.
But do motivational quotes really work? Do they actually help? Yes, they do help. With my experience, I can say that they really work. They can get you motivated to start something awesome which you will not be able to do otherwise.
I still remember the days when I used to work in a small company in accounts department. I was getting salary of INR 8000 PM. It was the worst job I have ever done. I was interested in starting my own web development business but my fear of failure stopping me from taking action.
I was afraid what would happen if I failed. I do not have courage to leave my Nine to five job and start my own business. But then one day, I come across a great motivational quote while browsing the net. The quote was something like this.
One who fears failure limits his activities. Failure is only the opportunity to more intelligently begin again. — Henry Ford
This quote has changed my life forever. When I read this quote first time, I realized that I am limiting my activities. I am spending my life just because of fear of failure. This quote has taken me to the core. This quote has motivated me to take action.
And I took action. I resigned from my job and started my own web development business. Today, after two years of leaving my job, I am doing great in my business. I am approaching good amount of money which I can never even imagine in my job. And all the credit goes to that motivational quote which has motivated me take action towards my goals. I would not be able to start my own business ever if I do not come across this great quote.
So yes, motivational quotes do really work. They boost your motivation and remind you of your goals and ambition. They help you eliminate self-destroying and negative thoughts from your mind which in turn makes you the person you always wanted to be.
