I’ve collected some of the best quotes I could find that have helped me on my path to success. These positive and inspirational quotes about life are sure to motivate you to chase your dreams!

I’ve always been interested in motivational words and inspirational quotes. I think of them as food or fuel for my mind. I’ve also always been a dreamer, chasing goals and never settling.

After reading a few positive quotes about life, I usually feel more motivated and work a little harder to reach my goals. Sometimes, after reading the right quote, I feel as if I can accomplish just about anything! So, I usually try to start most days with a few inspirational words. “One small positive thought in the morning, can change your whole day.” Author Unknown.

You can’t wait for your best life to just come to you. You have to create it. Envision and create a plan. Follow the steps and document every milestone no matter how big or small.

Hand-Picked For You Inspirational Quotes

Here are some of my favourite hand-picked inspirational quotes about life.

“Your true success in life begins when you make the commitment to become excellent at what you do.” Brian Tracy

I picked this quote as the first one out of the nine, because you can’t begin your journey until you commit to it.

Success Quotes

“Life is getting up an hour early to live an hour more.” Unknown

After you commit, you make the time! No excuses. So, if you don’t have enough time, you wake up an hour early and make it.

Early Riser Quote

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long you don’t stop.“Confucius

This is a good inspirational quote to remember on those days when you don’t feel very motivated. You’re not gonna crush it every day, but you have to keep going. Just a little each day. A small step forward, is still a step in the right direction!

Don't Stop Chasing Dreams Quote

“Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.” C.S. Lewis

I relate to this one so much and truly believe it. For some people, success and life comes so easy but those who struggle and have really worked their asses off for it- the reward is so much more appreciated and valued. Comment down below if you agree! I’d love to know I’m not the only one who’s struggled and hit rock bottom before taking over:)

Quote about overcoming hardships

“Great things never came from comfort zones.” Neil Strauss

And this is why people don’t pursue passion. They get stuck in their ‘comfort zone’ at their dead-end job. Working for their boss, who definitely did not get where they were by being comfortable. The road to success is often awkward at times! It’s still awkward for me. It’s also doubt and difficulty. Definitely not comfortable. Am I right?

quote about comfort zone

“Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.” Les Brown

Don’t expect others to create your success. It’s not gonna happen!

inspiration quotes

“The only thing that stands between you and your dream, is the will to try and the belief that is actually possible.” Joel Brown

This is so so true. You have to try and believe. The movie The Secret got people thinking that if they just think positive thoughts, it’ll happen. I believe in the power of positive thoughts but that’s only the beginning. You have to create a plan to achieve your goals and then work your butt off to make it happen. Plan, progress, create, achieve!

Quotes about chasing your dreams

“When you give everything you’ve got, you get everything you deserve.” Apoorve Dubey

When you work hard, you make great progress. It’s simple.

motivational quotes

“The best revenge is massive success.” Frank Sinatra

This is a simple inspirational quote, but powerful. To all those who doubted you, and put those thoughts of doubt in your head. To anyone who thought you couldn’t do it. Prove them wrong.
