I’ve been called a hater of motivational quotes. This isn’t true. In fact I gain inspiration from them. In the insanely popular article entitled “Why You’re Failing to Make a Difference” I get deeper into the reason people spread these messages. Unfortunately spreading quotes is big business. I want to make sure I only spread the ones that have had a profound influence on my life.
Enjoy and I hope you gain inspiration and direction from them the same way that I have.
“I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words each hour, each day, everyday, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids.
With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again.

Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person.” – Og Mendino

Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one,he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear.” - Thomas Jefferson
“It took me a long time to figure out why I was so happy to be checking my e-mail in the middle of the night. It had to do with passion. Other than sleeping, there was nothing I’d rather have been doing in that moment – because I’m lucky enough to have a job where I get to make change happen. Even though i don’t have many people working for me, I’m in the business of leading people, taking them somewhere we want to go.” - Seth Godin
