10 Quotes to Inspire the Doer in You

Written by: Susan Hang

We’re all doers at heart but there will be times when we become uninspired, discouraged, and shot down. Even worse, we might just be totally lost, waiting for a new opportunity, or praying for a miracle. And when that happens, how do you re-discover the spark that got you started and kept you moving? We can always start by looking at those successful individuals who went before us and “made it happen” since they really paved the way for us, proving that something someone once thought was impossible could be done. Or at minimum, we can regain inspiration from them. On my down days, I always love reading some good quotes so here’s a grand roundup of my favorites to re-energize the doer from deep within you (and also, a perfect way to start a new season):


Conditions are never perfect. “Someday” is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. If it’s important to you and you want to do it “eventually,” just do it and correct course along the way.” (Timothy Ferriss)


Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get. (Ray Kroc)

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. (Lao Tzu)


May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears. (Nelson Mandela)

There is no next time, no time outs, no second chances. Sometimes, it’s now or never. (Alan Bennett)


Run when you can, walk when you have to, crawl if you must, just never give up. (Dean Karnazez)

If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. (Winnie The Pooh)


It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default. (JK Rowling)

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much. (Jim Rohn)

For what it’s worth, it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you find the strength to start over. (F Scott Fitzgerald)
