Motivation, inspiration and you

I couldn’t help myself!  Not only do I love a great motivational quote, I’ve discovered that I love having a play and creating an image to make them look pretty.

Here are a few more to make your day.

Mark Victor Hansen

This is a biggie for me – Madam Perfectionist!  It’s only been in recent times that I’m learning that ‘progress is better than perfection’! Just. Get. Started.


Baby Steps

It is SO tempting, isn’t it, to leap straight in and try to do everything! I’ve been guilty of this many times in the past until I finally learned that it doesn’t work. Those tiny little baby steps that we think aren’t going to get us anywhere are pure gold!  What’s one baby step you can take TODAY to move closer to your goal?


Comfort Zone

It’s a whole new way of thinking and even BEING in the world.  We get used to our comfort zone.  Even when it isn’t particularly comfortable!  I’m learning to embrace the icky feeling when I bump up against that comfort zone (well almost!).  It might present as irritation or you might suddenly be ‘too busy’ or simply ‘forget’ to take the action you know you need to take.  Learn to recognise when you’re stepping out of that comfort zone and KEEP GOING!  Your comfort zone is a very dangerous place to be!




It’s human nature to want a quick fix.  If only.  But then we’d miss out on the joy of the journey.  When I first started to exercise back when I had a love affair with the couch, I’d read something like that, roll my eyes and think Yeah, right!

How far I’ve come.  Proof that it IS possible to change and grow.


Keep going


Yes! I think I made this up, although in truth I’ve probably picked it up from someone far more smarter than moi.  If this is your quote, my humble apologies!  Creating healthy changes in our lives or indeed ANY change needs to be viewed as trial and error instead of success or failure.  EXPECT that things won’t always go as you planned, pick yourself up, think about what happened without judgement and tweak your action steps.  You can do this.  Keep going!


Tony Robbins


More wisdom from the incredible Tony Robbins!  This really builds on from the previous quote – our goal doesn’t change but our action steps do.

Do you have a favourite quote that you’d like to share?  I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!

    Love these quotes. I came across a great one about failure and of course can’t remember it now. Suffice it to say, it’s along the lines of yours. Learn from it and move on.
