10 Motivational Quotes That Will Jump Start Your Day

Sometimes a little motivation is all you need to get you “pumped-up” for your day, or to get you through your day.  But some people try to discount motivation; however motivation is necessary in order for you to succeed.  I like what Jim Rohn said about motivation, he said, “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.

With that, here’s some motivation for your day!  When you’re done, pass it along to those you want to motivate.

10 Motivational Quotes That Will Jump Start Your Day:

Motivational Quote #5:


“The fishing is best where the fewest go, and the collective insecurity of the world makes it easy for people to hit home runs while everyone else is aiming for base hits.

You are better than you think.”
