10 Quotes That Drive Me to Be My Best

Today’s post is a little bit different than anything I’ve done in a while. My posts have become increasingly wordy as I’ve practiced a few different writing techniques in an attempt to sharpen my skillz (yes, with a z); so today I wanted to let you relax your brains and your eyeballs for a quick minute. Below is a list of quotes that help keep me in check and actively trying to be my best. I also made them pretty instead of using plain text. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful photography while you grab some inspiration on this hump day.

Do you have a favorite quote that helps keep you moving forward?

    I have SO many quotes that inspire me. Here are some of them:

    If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your path you make with every step you take. ~ Joseph Campbell

    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. ~ Marianne Williamson

    Until one is committed, there is always hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.

    Concerning acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:

    That the moment one definitely commits oneself then providence moves, too.

    All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no person could have dreamt would come his way.

    Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now. ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
