                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Advertising

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      8. Even the long-distance swimmer does not achieve success on their own—who is in your team toward success?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      9. How do you keep going? Look how far you have come. What helped you get this far? Who helped you get this far? How will they feature in the future to ensure you succeed and overcome?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      10. Life is easier with love—swap the word “life” for success, happiness, achieving your goals. Now ask yourself—where do you get your love from? The first place should be you.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      11.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        12. Learn the science of who you are. This is powerful knowledge that will empower you to move forward no matter what you face or want to achieve.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        13. Trying to copy the route to success that someone else took doesn’t guarantee you success. You have to honor your values, beliefs, and experiences.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        14. What you think is possible is absolutely correct. Challenge what you think.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        15. For one month, ask this question every day and score yourself out of 10 (10 being exceptional, 1 being lousy). Write the answer in your phone’s calendar: How successful do I feel? You can swap successful for happy, rich, loved, etc. Notice what affects your score.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        16. Remember that everything changes. The hibernating tree looks dead but will return in the spring rejuvenated. This is essential knowledge for good times and bad. In bad times, it reminds you to keep going, and in good times, it reminds you to be grateful and keep looking to learn and grow. (Just like that tree!)

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        17. What’s stopping you? Is it a perception or a fact? Either way, you can do something about it, even if it is just to change the thoughts attached to the thing that is stopping you. Nothing can have power over you unless you let it.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        18. Steer clear of negative people, news, and views. It’s all too easy to get dragged into other people’s negativity. Understand how negative news, views, and people impact you. If you can’t find ways to keep that negativity away, then step away metaphorically and physically. Your success will appreciate it.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        19. The quality of your thoughts and feelings impacts your actions and results. Everything you can see started as a thought. So, when you need encouragement, ask yourself, “are my thoughts enabling me or disabling me?” Are my thoughts “moving me forward or holding me back?”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Advertising

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        20.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          21. Sad isn’t bad. We get all the emotions, not just the good ones. So, when you feel sad, guilty, lonely, upset, frustrated, angry, mad, don’t push those emotions away. Take yourself through this process:

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          1. For what reason am I feeling this?
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          2. What does it tell me about my life right now?
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          3. What does it tell me about my actions and results right now?
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          4. What would I like to feel instead?
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          5. What would this do for me?
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          6. How will I get myself there?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Take yourself through the process and own all emotions.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          23. The one thing you can control is what you think.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          24. On this planet, your job is not to fit in. Your job is to shine. Stand out. Speak up, and be the unique individual you are meant to be. It’s the quickest way to lasting success.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          25. Words can only have power if you let them. Good words, bad words. Happy words. Successful words. Which words are you giving the most power to?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          26. If you want to achieve more, you’ve got to assume you are worth it. Are you worth it? (The answer is “Yes, with bells on are you worth it!”) And if you don’t believe this, then what will you do to rocket your confidence?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          27. While many fear failure, it is a gift in disguise. It tells you what not to repeat, it tells you what didn’t work, and it moves you forward to what you want to achieve. Don’t berate and hate your failures. They are driving you forward to your success.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          28. It’s hard to achieve great things if you don’t have a plan. It’s like wanting to go on holiday and just rocking up at the airport on the off chance you can get on a plane going to your dream destination. Plan what you want and create a plan of action to help get you there. It’s easier and faster.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          29. Everyone needs someone in their corner—someone to cheerlead, support, nurture, and wipe your grazed knees and remind you that you can. Who is in your corner? You can add me to that list.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          30. Social media is supposed to be good for you. It’s supposed to connect you to like-minded people, inspire you, motivate you, and make you laugh, feel connected, and loved like you are part of something truly special. If it doesn’t, start snoozing the haters, step away from the negative groups, and look for the things that inspire you—yes you can include cute funny cat videos!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          31. Action! The key to success is knowing when to take action and when to stop.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Advertising

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          32. When someone tells you that one book changed their life, that doesn’t mean it will work for you. If it doesn’t work for you, you did not fail, the book failed. The book was the wrong book for you. Don’t stop reading. Just look for the right fit for you.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          33. Just as all people are different with different beliefs and aspirations, so is the journey to success and progress different for all. Expecting to move forward and get what you want by copying others is not the same as looking up to the right role models.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          34. Your success, happiness, and progress in life are not dependent on luck. It is dependent on self-belief. Check your levels.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          35. It is not beneficial to apologize for what you need in life. It takes away its value to you. If you need it, own it!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          35. It’s a good idea to know the difference between enjoying the breeze and being pushed around by life.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          36. Motivation. If you are needing some, don’t look for it on a bad day. Look for it on a good day. Music, aromas, people, environments, photos, even fairy lights, and dancing can be the key to kick you back into action and results.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          37. Black and white. Nothing in life is black and white and yet people want things to be like this—to be “yes” or “no.” Final. Getting what you want in life rarely is so finite. You need to be able to accept a bit of grey area in life to get more of what you want. Being someone reliant on absolutes makes it so much harder.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          38. The racing driver does not concentrate on the brick wall at the side of the road as they race at 100+ miles per hour. They concentrate on the bend, the next bend, the finish line, and success. If you don’t want to hit the wall, concentrate on the track.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          39.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            40. Choosing to stop thinking about something because it upsets you, infuriates you, or angers you doesn’t mean your brain is not trying to process how you feel. You need to make space to process those negatives so that you are back in the flow and doing what you excel at.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            41. Being reactive instead of proactive stops you from moving forward. What needs to change?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            42. Is your fundamental desire for what you want rooted in love? If it is not, question how powerful your motivation is.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Advertising

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            43. When you really need motivation and encouragement and want to reach out to others, did you know that helping others also helps you? Altruism is a fast way to feeling good and doing good and it, in turn, helps you to feel motivated, too.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            44. Think back to a time that you overcome adversity, achieved something big, or kept going when you really didn’t want to. What skills do you notice? What were you telling yourself? What did you learn about who you are? How will you use that knowledge moving forward?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            45. “Don’t,” “Won’t,” and “Can’t” all have power. One holds power over you, one is neutral, and one takes ownership. Which one are you using? Can you tell the difference?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            46. Whoever said words had no power had never met a powerful coach! Words can be the building blocks to overcoming anything and getting what you want in life. So, what words are you allowing in your head? How do you word your goals and ambitions?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            47. Feel the fear and do it anyway. Is that a good idea with a starving tiger in the same room? Will you stick around and have a chat about how you wish to overcome the fear of the tiger or will you take action? Move so far away from your fear that it doesn’t exist? And get an expert to help you deal with the tiger? Analogies like this help you see how fear is allowed to stick around and how to get rid of it permanently.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            48. Believing that “it is what it is” is a great way to stay stuck. If you choose to believe there is a better way, you will find it.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            49. Being honest about what you face is not moaning, it’s reaching out. If people see this as moaning, they are the wrong people to be turning to. Maybe it’s time to upgrade your network of friends, colleagues, and people you can trust.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            50. Look in the mirror, who do you see? Someone you love or someone you loathe? Both will impact your success.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            So, What Now?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Now that you’ve read 50 quotes and words of encouragement, which ones got you thinking and which ones can’t you remember reading? Some will really resonate with you and make you question how you think and how you act. Take just three minutes to decide which words of encouragement are going to be your mantra for the coming week.

Did you see any improvement? Did you really remember to hold on to this quote with the power to encourage you forward to great things?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            If not, stop in your tracks and consider how much you believe in yourself. The most powerful words in the world can’t work on the person who already believes that they are good enough, capable, or have failed.
