23 Motivational Mindset Quotes To Get Things Done

Quotes To Get You Motivated:

#1 – “Even a mistake may turn out to be the one thing necessary to a worthwhile achievement” – Henry Ford

People are often afraid to make mistakes. They worry that a single misstep will lead to failure and embarrassment.

However, it’s important to remember that even the most successful people have made plenty of mistakes along the way. What separates them from others is their willingness to learn from their mistakes and keep moving forward.

Instead of seeing mistakes as a sign of weakness, they view them as an opportunity for growth.

QUOTE - Even a mistake may turn out to be the one thing necessary to a worthwhile achievement.

#2 – “Do one thing every day that scares you” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Quote - do one thing every day that scares you

#3 – “It’s always too early to quit” – Norman Vincent Peale

There are SO many times in life that people give up just before something good may have happened.

Yes, you have to be realistic about this so you don’t waste time – but make sure you do your research first. Find others who’ve done something similar to see if there’s a chance that actually, if you stuck it out a little while longer, you’ll get to where you wanted.

Quote - it's always too early to quit

#4 – “Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later” – Og Mandino

Ever wanted to diet and found yourself saying that you’ll start on Monday / the New Year / next month?

If you started right there and then – even just a few days ahead of the plan – think how much more quickly you might reach your goal?

Get started, and don’t wait…

Quote - always do your best

#5 – Slow progress is still progress…

I ran an ultra marathon last year – it involved 47 miles and over 9000ft of climb. It took 21 hours.

Before I decided to do it I never thought I could do anything like that. I’m not really really fit and don’t class myself as a runner really.

But we took it one step at a time. Broke it down into small chunks, and just made each step count – however fast or slow each one was…

Quote - slow progress is still progress

#6 – “Believe you can and you’re already halfway there” – Theodore Roosevelt

QUOTE - Believe you can and you're already halfway there

#7 – “You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do” – Unknown

We’ve all heard the saying “actions speak louder than words.”

This is especially true when it comes to motivation. You can talk about wanting to lose weight, start a business, or get in shape, but if you don’t take action, those words mean nothing.

A motivational mindset is all about taking action and following through on your goals. It’s not enough to just set a goal; you need to have a plan for how you’re going to achieve it.

That means getting organised, setting deadlines, and most importantly, taking action.

Just because you’re not where you want to be yet doesn’t mean you can’t get there. Change starts with taking that first step, and if you really want to achieve something, you’ll find a way to make it happen.

QUOTE - You are what you do, not what you say you'll do

#8 – “If you don’t like something , change it – if you can’t change it – change the way you think about it” – Mary Englebreit

It’s easy to get stuck in negative thinking patterns, especially when faced with obstacles and challenges.

However, it’s important to remember that we always have the power to change our perspective. This quote is a reminder that we can choose to see the positive in any situation, even if it means making some changes first.

If there’s something in our lives that we’re not happy with, we can take action to change it. And if we can’t change the situation itself, we can at least change the way we think about it. This is the key to maintaining a motivational mindset.

By seeing the potential for positive change, we open ourselves up to new possibilities and opportunities.

Quote - if you don't like something, change it

#9 – Make Today Count…

Quote - make today count

#10 – “I think anything is possible if you have the mindset and the will and desire to do it and put the time in” – Roger Clemens

QUOTE - I think anything is possible if you have the mindset and the will and desire to do it and put the time in.

#11 – Be the change you wish to see in the world…

This means not just standing on the sidelines and waiting for someone else to step up, but actively seeking out new opportunities for growth and influence.

It means taking risks, stepping outside of our comfort zones, and making bold choices that may not always be easy but are ultimately worth it.

Think about what kind of difference you want to make in this world – big or small – and then let your actions be the driving force behind your journey forward.

After all, there’s no limit to what you can accomplish when you are committed to being a change-maker!

Quote - Be the change you wish to see in the world

#12 – “You can always do more than you think” – John Wooden

Quote - you can always do more than you think

#13 – Make it happen…

Quote - Make it happen

#14 – Stop waiting for the perfect time. The perfect time is now…

Time Quote - Stop waiting for the perfect time...

#15 – “Eliminate the mindset of CAN’T! Because you can do anything!” – Tony Horton

When we tell ourselves that we can’t do something, we’re setting ourselves up for failure before we even start.

Instead, we need to focus on what we CAN do. Believe in yourself and your abilities, and you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve.

So the next time you’re feeling doubtful, remember this quote and remind yourself that you CAN do anything!

QUOTE - Eliminate the mindset of CAN’T! Because you can do anything!

#16 – “If my mind can conceive it, if my heart can believe it, then I can achieve it” – Muhammad Ali

QUOTE - If my mind can conceive it, if my heart can believe it, then I can achieve it

#17 – Things do not happen. Things are made to happen…

This is all about being proactive rather than reactive in life.

Proactive means we aren’t sitting back and allowing others to do things that could affect us, where we would then have to react.

Empower yourself and make things happen instead!

#19 – “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right” – Henry Ford

QUOTE - If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you’re right.

#20 – I can and I will…

Quote - I can and I will

#21 – “There is nothing impossible to they who will try” – Alexander the Great

QUOTE - There is nothing impossible to they who will try.

#22 – Wake up with determination, go to bed with satisfaction…

This quote reminds us that being motivated and focused is crucial for success.

It stresses the importance of getting up each day with the goal of taking action and making progress towards our goals.

And it also encourages us to acknowledge our accomplishments at the end of each day, letting ourselves feel satisfied by what we have accomplished instead of simply setting new goals for ourselves without reflecting on what we’ve already achieved.

So if you want to feel empowered and energised each day, remember this powerful quote and let it guide you in crafting your own motivational mindset.

With determination and a willingness to make things happen, you can accomplish anything!

#23 – Find your why…

Motivation starts with knowing WHY you’re doing something. If you don’t have a reason for it, then it can be almost impossible to get the drive to get it done.

When you need a boost of motivation, always look at the reasons you wanted to do it in the first place, and that will help get things moving…
