A little motivation

Like most I sometimes come to face the what I like to call 'general block', as opposed to writers block, which I can only describe as when you arrive at a halt in your life where you need some kind of push to keep you going or at least in the right direction. It happens to the best of us and whatever the cause whether it be education, family, money problems or something as simple as not knowing what colour you want to paint the bedroom, it is still a issue that needs facing and conquering. Therefore I thought I'd put together a collective of 20 quotes of wisdom from across the tinterweb that may help some of you if you are needing assistance with that little kick up the bum. 

Life is so much better when you stop caring what others think.

When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Be a game changer. The world has enough followers.

Stop wishing. Start doing.

Stop worrying about things you can't control.

The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do. 

If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.

A head full of fears has no space for dreams.

When you feel like quitting think about why you started.

A goal without a plan is just a wish.

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.

Over thinking kills your happiness.

If you don't like where you are then move. You are not a tree.

Don't compare your Chapter 1 to someone else's Chapter 20.

If people talk behind your back it's because you're ahead of them.

Nothing good ever came easy.

Kill them with success and bury them with a smile.

You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there's still going to be somebody who hates peaches.

Quit slackin' and make shit happen.

At the end of the day, and a slight reference from Lit, you're your own worst enemy. Ignore anyone who tries to belittle you or make you a regular topic of daily conversation. Cliché but it's nothing more than bitterness and jealousy. Don't worry about what anyone else is achieving in life because their success will only pull you down. You'll get there as long as you stay on the path of ambition, and don't forget that things do get better. It might not seem it sometimes but things always fall into place eventually.

  2. Life is definitely so much better when you stop caring what others think - something we all need to remember :)

  3. I am guilty to two of these most of all and I need to let go of things I can not control... And I need to stop caring about what others think. Great post , think I am guilty of most though xox

  4. These are great, especially in those times when you're just not feeling up for stuff. It's unfortunate that sometimes our minds think negatively, but we should just pick things up and carry on. Thanks <3
