Henry David Thoreau's Beautiful GPS
When it comes to inspirational quotes and verbal kicks in the seat of the pants, Henry David Thoreau is one of the best. I thought he’d be perfect for today’s quote of the day.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. - Henry David Thoreau
A little tip about inspirational and motivational quotes. When you find one that strikes a chord with you.. right where the chord needs to be struck… write it down and put it in plain sight. It’s a funny thing about quotes – sometimes one that sets a fire beneath us does zip for then next person. Someone once told me a quote that had changed their life. I can’t even remember what it was, per se, but it was a Chinese proverb – that much I remember. I also remember them looking at my face, waiting for my light bulb reaction.
Not so much as a flicker.
I just thought, “Seriously? That set you on fire?”
I have several quotes written on index cards hanging on the cork board above my computer in my home office. One, by Lady Maya Angelou always spurs me on: “Nothing will work unless you do.” I’m not sure why, but these words always flip a switch for me.
Browse through the motivational quotes on Self Help Daily and find the ones that flip your switch – then print them onto index cards and place them accordingly. After all, like light switches in a room, our emotional switches need to be flipped on daily… otherwise we’ll be sitting in the dark looking like perfect fools.
