Sometimes in life, words of wisdom have a way of sinking into your brain and changing your life for the better.
Words of wisdom are helpful to anyone looking to get inspired through words that are as powerful as they are meaningful. These impactful words of wisdom will inspire you to dig deeper and leave you with purpose and motivation.
Motivation quotes play a significant role in helping us realize the potential within us. We’re counting down the ten most motivational quotes for students and workers alike:
When caught up in an unseemly situation, we usually look for the easy way out. And unfortunately, procrastination is the natural response. This quote serves us with a reminder that perhaps the best route is going “through” the problem, rather than around it. As a result, you find that good things begin to happen when you cease to delay and beat about the bush and take matters into your hand to resolve it.
Coined in 23 BC by Horace, the term is derived from a poem in the Odes (book 1, number 11), and means “Seize the moment”. The Latin term over the years has evolved into the most quoted Latin phrase because of its implications to capture life’s opportunity and live life to the fullest!
In each of our lives, there is this one person – if not ourselves – who holds us back in accomplishing our dreams. What better feeling to prove that very person wrong by conquering your worst fears and doubts.
Believe that it is absolutely impossible to fail, and you might just start acting as per your thinking as well! In spite of the worries that things may not work out, believe in its possibility, and your actions will reflect this positivity too!
Hunter tells us about how ultimately, our success and failure comes down to us- our hard work, our tenacity, and our perseverance.
Your goal may be big, and at times, it may seem impossible and difficult. You will feel like you’re failing and you’re not getting anywhere. But perseverance, belief and conviction in those small steps that you’re taking towards those goals is what you need to be confident about. Consistently follow your life mission, one step at a time, no matter how small the step may be.
This funny motivational quote by Vaszily succinctly describes how we are the biggest enemies of ourselves, standing in the way of our success and accomplishments. Either we do not understand out true potential, or we begin to doubt our skills. It’s time to put aside all the worries to focus on what and how we can achieve excellence.
Every day we see the violence around us. While there is very little that we can do, the Indian political leader says it best. Start with the man in the mirror. Be the change you want to see within others. While you can’t influence the world, you can be a better human, and become the testament of the change.
As the weather gets harsher and tougher, it’s time to brace yourself! The difficult times are simply temporary, but it is due to those tough and difficult times that you are stronger today. The best part is that you are now tougher today than you were yesterday! And more importantly, you got through it all. Celebrate your strength!
So you’re focused and know exactly what you want? It’s not enough. Thoreau tells us through a beautifully accurate metaphor how it’s not just enough to know the right direction, but also do everything possible to get to the finish line!

“At the end of my placement in Zanzibar, Tanzania, I was given a kanga (colourful printed cotton fabric) as a parting gift by the students and teachers of a college I had facilitated in. Every kanga has a Swahili quote on it, and mine reads 'nimeridhika na hali yangu' which means 'I am satisfied with my situation'. A wonderful reminder on gratitude and humility that I always try to keep close in mind.”

“You're the agent of change and people want you to say things and make changes that they may not be able to say or make themselves.”

“In some ways, there's nothing extraordinary about volunteering. I think people have an instinct to help one another and I think some people are answering that instinct when they choose to volunteer.”
