50. Don’t let anyone tell you that daydreaming is a waste of time: the only people who would dare tell you that are people without any vision.Susan Miller
Nothing is built in a day, everything starts with an idea, a thought or a vision. This is the only way to identify your goal in life. You may meet many discouraging people who may lecture you it’s useless to build castles in the air. Such people don’t have any goal in their own lives, so cannot tolerate others working in a direction to reach somewhere. Keep such people at arm’s length and pursue your dreams because that’s what true living is all about.
51. Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by idiots.William Gibson
There are numerous reasons why someone becomes depressed. One of them is the crowd surrounding you. In the company of people with criticizing nature, you are bound to continuously get bombarded with suggestions and advices and it decreases your confidence. They use you as a dumping ground for their negativity. Ultimately it rubs off on you. With sick people, you cannot have a healthy mind. So, become self-aware to raise yourself out of any kind of depression. Surround yourself with people who love you and respect you for who you are.
52. Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.Unknown
This is one of the best quotes that inspire young people to focus on knowledge that will later light a spark of creativity in them. Education is not about mugging up and pouring it out in exams to get a good percentage and reach a higher grade. Education is not about collecting dribbling drops of information to stuff our minds so that no room is left for creativity. Education has to be sharp like a matchstick to light a fire in students that motivates them for taking risks and develops their problem solving skills.
53. Light tomorrow with today.Elizabeth Barrett Browning
This is one inspirational quote that speaks of how you live your present will define the course of your future. Many people crib about failures of past or worry about future but hardly make any efforts today to make a brighter tomorrow. Today and tomorrow are interdependent. Chalk out the plan for your future today and lay the building blocks for tomorrow. Work hard, don’t leave today’s job for tomorrow. Make your present productive to secure your future. You can take your life in the direction you want.
54. Happiness is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it eludes you. But if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.Henry David Thoreau
Many people are constantly pursuing happiness without realizing that while they’re occupied with the chase, they may be missing out on things that would make them happy. Don’t make a conscious effort to find happiness as it cannot be forced. Be patient and work diligently in accomplishing your tasks and you will see happiness comes naturally. Don’t make happiness your aim, make it your guiding principle. In fact, happiness itself is a part of your perspective where one person’s happiness may not be sufficient for another.
55. Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.Aristotle
Working hard is good but when you enjoy what you are doing, you tend to do much better. This is why, if you are experiencing monotony in a job but doing it just because it pays, you are making your performance suffer, deteriorating your growth. So do what you love and love what you do. Pick things of your interest that utilize your talent to be your long-term profession. Work in an industry that you are passionate about and you will see your true potential. This is one of the motivational quotes to bring out the best in you.
56. You are never a loser until you quit trying.Mike Ditka
Perseverance has the power to accomplish the most difficult of tasks. Obstacles will undoubtedly come and it’s the ability to hold on to your dreams and trying consistently that will help you reach your goal. People fail because they stop trying and they stop trying because they fail. It’s not your destiny but your determination that brings you close to success. The concept of a loser has been poorly defined by mankind. Only when you quit is the time you are truly a loser. So don’t give up and keep trying.
