Motivational Quotes

“There is nothing wrong with making mistakes.  Mistakes are part of life an essential for growth.  It’s like that saying, ‘Happiness comes through good judgment, good judgment comes through experience, and experience comes through bad judgement.’  But there is something very wrong with making the same mistakes over and over again, day in and day out.  This shows a complete lack of self-awareness, the very quality that separates humans from animals.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“If at all possible, commune with nature daily.  A quick walk through the woods or even a few minutes spent cultivating your tomato garden in the backyard will reconnect you to the wellspring of calm that may now be dormant within you.  Being with nature also allows you to tune in to the infinite wisdom of your highest self.  This self-knowledge will move you into the uncharted dimensions of your personal power.  Never forget this.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“Fear is a conditioned response: a life-sucking habit that can easily consume your energy, creativity and spirit if you are not careful.  When fear rears its ugly head, beat it down quickly.  The best way to do that is to do the thing you fear.  Understand the anatomy of fear.  It is your own creation.  Like any other creation, it is just as easy to tear it down as it is to erect it.  Methodically search for and then destroy every fear that has secretly slid into the fortress of your mind.  This alone will give you enormous confidence, happiness and peace of mind.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“Identify the things that are holding you back.  Are you scared of speaking or do you have trouble in your relationships?  Do you lack a positive attitude or do you need more energy?  Make a written inventory of your weaknesses.  Satisfied people are far more thoughtful than others.  Take the time to reflect on what it is that might be keeping you from the life you really want to know deep down you can have.  Once you have identified what your weaknesses are, the next step is to face them head on and attack your fears.  If you fear public speaking, sign up to give twenty speeches.  If you fear starting a new business or getting out of a dissatisfying relationship, muster every ounce of your inner resolve and do it.  This might be the first taste of real freedom that you have experienced in years.  Fear is nothing more than a mental monster you have created, a negative stream of consciousness.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“To improve your mind without the cultivation of your physical gifts would be a very hollow victory.  Elevating your mind and body to their highest level without nurturing your should would leave you feeling very empty and unfulfilled.  But when you dedicate your energies to unlocking the full potential of all three of your human endowments, you will taste the divine ecstacy of an enlightened life.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“You will never be able to hit a target that you cannot see.  People spend their whole lives dreaming of becoming happier, living with more vitality and having an abundance of passion.  Yet they do not see the importance of taking even ten minutes a month to write out their goals and to think deeply about the meaning of their lives, their Dharma.  Goal setting will make your life magnificent.  Your world will become richer, more delightful and more magical.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“The happiness you are searching for comes through reflecting on the worthy aims you are dedicated to achieving and then taking action daily to advance them.  This is a direct application of the timeless philosophy which prescribes that those things which are most important should never be sacrificed to those things which are the least important.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“Those who are truly enlightened know what they want out of life, emotionally, materially, physically and spiritually.  Clearly defined priorities and goals for every aspect of your life will serve a role similar to that played by a lighthouse, offering you guidance and refuge when the seas become rough.  You see, anyone can revolutionize their lives once they revolutionize the direction in which they are moving.  But if you don’t even know where you are going, how will you ever know when you get there?” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“Understand once and for all that your mind has magnetic power to attract all that you desire into your life.  If there is a lack in your life it is because there is a lack in your thoughts.  Hold wonderful pictures in your mind’s eye.  Even one negative image is poisonous to your mindset.  Once you start to experience the joy this ancient technique brings, you will realize the infinite potential of your mind and begin to liberate the storehouse of ability and energy that currently sleeps within you.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari
