Motivational Quotes: Do They Work?

I’m a big believer in motivational quotes. Yes, there is no denying that they are a multi-million dollar business. Just look at the success of such well known motivational speakers as Jim Rohn, Brian Tracy & Tony Robbins, to name a few. It’s tough to go in to most any supermarket, card store or specialty gift shop without seeing a display of cards, signs, gifts, etc. inspired by these quotes.  But the true value comes only when we can read or hear the quote and then harness the power that the quote ignites within us. Below are a few of my favorite quotes about goals and goal setting .
  1. “Man is so made, that whenever anything fires his soul, impossibilities vanish.” ~ La Fontaine
  2. “Do not attempt to do a thing unless you are sure of yourself, but do not relinquish it simply because someone else is not sure of you.”       ~ Stewart E. White
  3. “When you have the enthusiasm and the passion, you end up figuring how to excel.”     ~ Deena Kastor
  4. “To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” ~ Anatole France
  5. “One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals” ~ Michael Korda
  6. “The road to success is always under construction.” ~ Lily Tomlin
  7. “You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith.” ~ Mary Manin Morrissey
  8. “If you wait to do everything until you’re sure it’s right, you’ll probably never do much of anything.” ~ Win Borden
  9. “Goals. There’s no telling what you can do when you get inspired by them. There’s no telling what you can do when you believe in them. There’s no telling what will happen when you act upon them.” ~ Jim Rohn
  10. “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

I’d really enjoy knowing which, if any, of these goal setting motivational quotes ignites a fire inside you. Or, feel free to add your favorite to the list.
