When things get tough, sometimes I turn to motivational quotes for a bit of inspiration. Here are a few of my favorites:

“When I do the best I can with what I have, then I have won my race.”     Jay Foonberg

“Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway”     John Wayne

“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, I used everything you gave me”     Erma Bombeck

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not, nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not, unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not, the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent”     Calvin Coolidge

“Although there are many paths up the same mountain, one small step is the only way to begin the climb. And always remember you’re not alone and there will be help along the way”

“You got a dream, you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they wanna tell you that you can’t do it. If you want something, go get it . . . period”     Chris Gardner

“But it ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. It’s how much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.”     Rocky Balboa

“Go to your strengths Athlete”     Mark Bravo

“You want to really live, You take chances, That’s how it works.”

“The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.”     Nelson Henderson
