Self-improvement; even the buzzword itself seems to be a taboo subject, something to be left to tabloid journalists and self-proclaimed life coaches. I rarely write on the subject because I have so many flaws myself. But since JANUARY seems to be the go-to month for resolutions, I thought I’d give it a go (solely in the form of motivational quotes to inspire self improvement)!
People always say they have the ‘Monday Blues’ but does absolutely no one ever consider Tuesday?
I often think it’s the worst day of the week; on Monday you can reminisce over the weekend, Wednesday is midway through the week, Thursday is an acceptable day to party and, well, FriYAY anyone?! So here are some motivational quotes to cheer up a dreary Tuesday (I have quite a few of these stuck above my desk):
‘IT TAKES 20 YEARS TO CREATE OVERNIGHT SUCCESS‘
‘WHEN ONE DOOR CLOSES, BREAK A WINDOW‘
-WITH LOVE FROM YOURS TRULY
Never ever ever ever give up! EVER EVER EVER.
‘WHEN YOUR MIND SAYS GIVE UP, HOPE WHISPERS ONE MORE TRY‘
‘HOLDING A GRUDGE IS LETTING SOMEONE LIVE RENT FREE IN YOUR HEAD‘
‘MÊME LA NUIT LA PLUS SOMBRE PRENDRA FIN ET LE SOLEIL SE LÈVERA‘
‘WHEN EVERYTHING FEELS LIKE A STRUGGLE, JUST THINK OF THE VIEW FROM THE TOP‘
‘COMPARISON IS THE GREATEST THIEF OF JOY’
– THEODORE ROOSEVELT
I’ve referred to this quote before, and I have no doubt I’ll do it again, but when you make everything a competition, you lose sight of your own goals…
‘A GOAL WITHOUT A PLAN IS JUST A WISH‘
–ANTOINE DE SAINT-EXUPÉRY
‘EVERYDAY IS A SECOND CHANCE‘
‘”IF TODAY WERE THE LADY DAY OF MY LIFE, WOULD I WANT TO DO WHAT I AM ABOUT TO DO TODAY?” AND WHEN THE ANSWER HAS BEEN “NO” FOR TOO MANY DAYS IN A ROW, I KNOW I NEED TO CHANGE SOMETHING‘.
And finally, when nothing seems to be working out, return to the drawing board and try again.
Have a lovely day!
