Lets get inspired

“What I know for sure is that what you give comes back to you. That’s not just my theory or point of view, it’s physics. Life is an energy of giving and receiving… Those that are greedy, hit a road block where they are alone. Give more than you receive and be grateful for those around you.” – Oprah Winfrey

The ChiPassionistas (if you don’ already follow them you are seriously missing out) recently shared some of their favorite career/life quotes with us, and I thought it would be fun to start a collection some life/motivational/fitness ones here to help all of us get our butts in gear!

If you look to the right, I have a “random quote generator” that shares daily motivation with you all.

What are your favorite words of motivation? Please leave a comment with your favorite quote (or link to your favorite quote-image) so I can add it for all to see!

I’m determined that “Keep Calm & Carry On” will be my new mantra! It kept sane on my business trip, and I’ve decided that life’s too short not to apply it every day of my life, not just in extremely stressful situations!

Here’s my favourite inspiring quote:

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the world world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you! ~Christian D. Larson

I love this! I’m printing it out for some motivation because who doesn’t need motivation some days? I am quitting my job next month and I am super excited yet scared at the same time!

Two of my favorites are “Keep your face to the sun and you’ll never see the shadows” and “The definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result”

My favorite quote… “Life is a journey, not a destination.” Every time I am struggling or think that I don’t have all that I want, I think about this saying. It really isn’t about what we end up with, it’s about what we do with the days we have.

I love the holstee manifesto, as well as the words to the poem “Don’t Quit”.

Thank you for the link love, Jennifer! :) Glad you like the quote as much as we do. It never ceases to inspire no matter how many times I read it!

I love the idea of continuing to post inspirational messages. That quote at the very beginning from Oprah is GREAT!

Happy Monday!!

I have way too many to even share :) A lot of my favorite quotes are from authors (American & French). Shocking, huh :)
