21 Quotes That Will Inspire You to Create Your Destiny

Many people are not living the life they want. They think their destiny is not in their hands. Are you one of them?  If so, then have you tried to find out the reason for this? Try asking yourself, why are you not living the life of your dreams? Did you find some excuse? I’ll be surprised if you didn’t.

One and half years before I was not living the life I wanted to live and I kept blaming other things for my situation. But, once I learned that we can become whatever we want to, things changed.

It’s easy to blame other things (situations, other persons, the universe, god etc…) for what is happening in our life. But, it’s hard to take responsibility. I mean it’s funny, how we can do this to ourselves.


Many things helped me to bring out of this thinking and I should say that quotes are a great source of motivation. Anytime I was going off-track, reading a simple quote had set me on track. Now I’m having the total sense of control over my life.

So, here are 21 simple but powerful quotes which can inspire you to take control of your life:

  2. You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.
