Hello and Welcome,

As we begin or continue along the path in our search for Personal Growth Mastery, the biggest challenge we will face is to remain focused and disciplined.

Our Mind can and will wander, and will look at our past and fill us with regret by reminding us of so-called mistakes we have made, or it will look to a future, filling us with uncertainty, doubt, fear and concern.

We need to be brought back to the present moment and maintain focus on the truth, of what is real. I have listed below some of the Best Inspirational Quotes, that if used properly, and put into practice, can help us in this ever challenging task.

My own personal experience in using Inspirational Quotes For Success is to read and find the Inspirational Quotes that are meaningful to me, and then put them in places, where throughout my waking hours will be right in my face so to speak.

For Example:

Bathroom Mirror – Shaving / Cleaning Teeth

Above Or In Front Of The Toilet / Obvious

A Screensaver On My Home And Work Computer

Alarm My Phone With An Hourly Quote

My Diary Journal And Calendar

Dashboard Of My Car

Humpback whale in full breach 90% of body is lited out of the water

  1. Awesome page. I love the John Maxwell quote at the beginning.

    This is a great idea, and a great contribution to the collective humanity, we need more positivity like this out in the world I appreciate the work you put in, and am excited to see what the future of your page has in store!!

    1. Hello Gabe,

      Really made my day with your comment,thank you so much.I love that John Maxwell quote too, and use it often as a ‘Pick me up’ reminder to move forward to do something, anything to get me into gear for something I don’t feel like doing in a particular moment.

      It also takes me from looking up at the ‘supposed mountain’ I have to climb and brings my focus back to the one small step in front of me..always works. You’ve also inspired me to get some new work out there. Thanks again Gabe.

      My Best wishes to to you always.


  2. Hi, Paul!

    My favorite inspirational quote is the one by Henry Ford:
    “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’ right”.

    Some of these quotes can be used as affirmations. They can be useful by saying them out loud a couple of times a day!

    I’ll use these quotes for my social media posts. Thanks!

    1. Hey Marios

      Nice to hear from you. Interesting to know your favorite quote amongst those listed is probably the most simplistic yet profound quote of them all. These 12 words say much more than our first impression might offer, as I’m sure you know having made it your favourite.

      Please feel free to use any or all of the quotes listed on our website. Together we can help put them out there and change peoples lives, one step at a time.

      Cheers mate and thank you!


  3. Hi Paul…I love all the quotes, I’m working on this one at the moment.

    -Audrey Hepburn
    Love your work.
    Cheers Donna.?

      Loving your work too girl.


  4. Thanks for the inspiring quotes, I am really in need with these quotes 🙂 Sometimes when the life hit hard, it’s easy to crumble and dwelling in stress and depression. I love both Walt Disney and and Tony Robbins quote. Those two quotes inspired me to move on from my office job to set up a new goal that I want to achieve outside 9-to-5 working job. I also love this inspiring quote, but I forgot who said them first: “Every thousand miles begins with a single step”. Thank yoo.

    1. Hi There,

      Thanks for your comment and so glad you got some inspiration out of these wonderful inspiring quotes. It was actually Lao Tzu the famous Chinese man who wrote this quote which is a wonderful reminder when we are feeling overwhelmed.

      Warm regards


  5. I really love this quote “Start by doing what’s necessary, then do what’s possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible -Francis of Assisi”. From the beginning, I did not plan on doing my own site. But I have done so far and it is lasting 14 days. Sometimes, I think I am doing a nonsense thing. I am worry that I cannot give my site the best effort I can. But I still keep it up every day. I do from the easiest thing, do everything I can think in the moment I think about my beloved website and I can continue many more days. I hope that I can keep it up more. Thanks for sharing the quote! I will keep telling myself do as many things as possible to continue my work.

    1. Hi there Duc,

      Thanks for sharing. A new website can be very daunting and I’m glad you found some inspiration here. We all need it. Keep going be consistent and work hard. If you don’t give up you cannot fail

      Cheers and best wishes


  6. Nice quotes,

    I really love all these quotes you’ve listed and I will pin them around my home and office. To help me stay motivated even in the middle of a rot. This quote “change your thoughts and change your world” is so easy today but very difficult to do. It’s really hard for me to take control of my thoughts. I can easily control my words, but my mind is mindless at times.

    Thanks for this inspirations, regards

    1. Hi Louis,

      Welcome once again. Awareness is certainly the beginning of changing our thoughts and I know it’s not just that easy. However, once you realise what the mind is up to you can make changes one step at a time. Stick with it, it’s not an overnight job. Our website is a place we can share our feelings and our progress.

      You are welcome here always and there are constant reminders of the habits we need to form. Please let me know which particular quotes you will be pinning around the house.



  7. So so many useful tips and tricks all on one page! Wonderful! I bookmarked to look further. There is a quote that says your mindset determines your success which means what we think is what we actually become. Most of the quotes you shared have positive declarations in it which makes it more interesting. My favourite quote is ” You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream”. Thanks for sharing

    1. Hello there and welcome,

      Always great for me to know I have helped inspire someone on some level. What we think about we become is a classic quote and I think we all agree. Keep setting those goals bus just as if not more important is to enjoy the process or the journey

      Best wishes my friend,


  8. Thanks for this great inspirational post, “I love the quote by Nelson Mandela’s Quote “problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines” they activate an emotional pulse point in my heart and mind when I’m in a distressing situation, and it always makes me see the lights at the end of the tunnel and gives an extra boost of courage. Good job! 

    1. Hello Suen,

      Thanks for your comment and the quote from Mandela is a very powerful one. Please drop by anytime and find more inspiration here, We all are in need of some inspiration sometimes and you’ve found a place where you are always welcome



  9. Hi Paul!!  I have a quote but not sure who said it first “Your attitude determines your altitude”.I have heard it for so long it seems a part of me!! I like the fact that you put your quotes all over your house. I do the same with scripture. Thanks for sharing with us!!



    1. Hello again Lynda,

      Thanks for the comment, the quote you mentioned is from Zig Ziglar and I love it too. We all need to be constantly reminded as our minds have been so conditioned for a long period of time. I love that you to have reminders and It doesn’t matter where they come from as long as they are working

      Blessings Lynda


  10. I love positive attitudes and affirmations.
    Reading every one of these was so helpful because they all make perfect sense.
    I like the idea of where to hang these to see them all the time to be reminded.
    The more of these inspirational quotes that are in front of you everyday, the better chance you have of being successful.
    Another one I’d like to add is: “Quitters don’t win and winners don’t quit!”
    And goals and plans are great but unless you take action, you have zero chance in succeeding!

    1. Hi there Rob,

      So glad you enjoyed these quotes, thank you. The Quote you have mentioned comes from Vince Lombardi a super successful coach in American Football of NFL. Hanging these around the house not only reminds us of what’s real but also challenges us to take responsibility for our lives

      All the very best mate
