i couldn’t pick just one favorite quote, so i decided to make a post with my top 5 favorite quotes!
1. everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. be kind, always.
we are quick to jump to conclusions, and say harsh words we don’t mean. keeping this in mind helps me remember that you never know what someone could be going through, and to be gentle.
2. when thinking about life, remember this: no amount of guilt can change the past, and no amount of anxiety can change the future.
what has happened has happened, and this quote has helped me learn lessons from my past and move forward. as i am also prone to overthinking, this helps me realize that i shouldn’t worry so much about what will happen.
3. there are 3 rules in life: 1. if you do not go after what you want, you will never have it. 2. if you do not ask, the answer will always be no. 3. if you do not step forward, you will always remain in the same place.
pretty self-explanatory. i like the logicalness of these rules, and how simple they are, yet profound. i remember these whenever i am hesitating or unsure, when i am worried about something, or when i cannot give something my all.
4. you have to continue to work even when you’re not being praised. you have to dig deep and go the extra mile because breakthroughs don’t happen when you do the bare minimum. it has to come from you and be for you. it all comes down to you.
it is hard to keep going when everything feels pointless. why should i keep working hard? no one even notices or recognizes my efforts. what is the point in reaching for excellence? will this even benefit me in the end? whenever i get like this, this quote reminds me of the answers to these questions.
5. motivation is what gets you started. habit is what keeps you going.
motivation, that lets-do-this!! attitude only lasts for so long. simple motivation is not enough to power you through everything. discipline and habit will keep you on you path, even when you can’t bring yourself to.
these quotes have really helped me when i was struggling, and i hope they can do that for you too!
“The revolution is successful. But survival depends on drastic
measures. Your continued existence represents a threat to the well-being
of society. Your lives mean slow death to the more valued members of
the colony. Therefore, I have no alternative but to sentence you to
death. Your execution is so ordered, signed Kodos, Governor of Tarsus IV.”
