Posted on

Inspirational sayings are like powerful mantras that, if repeated often enough, can have major positive impacts on your character. Understand how to harness the power of these words to change your life.

Have you ever read or hear a message SO powerful that it just harpooned you straight in the heart and made you have a great day? A message so powerful that you memorized it first time and can still recite it today? There are many great sayings which will inspire you. But what do they mean? Why do some people completely change their thoughts and actions due to a simple sentence? The answer is IMPACT .

Inspirational quotations activate your emotions . They increase the strength of your beliefs and will automatically give you a sense of instant determination, euphoria, achievement and anticipation. Below are some of the best, most uplifting quotations I know – along with a short interpretation:

"It does not matter where you are coming from. All that matters is where you are going."

This powerful quote by Brian Tracy really moves me. He’;s saying it does not matter one bit what your background is, where you’;ve come from, what kind of life you’;ve had or how many people have trodden all over you along the way. What matters is what you can do NOW to achieve your dreams, because you can not change the past but you certainly can determine your future!

"You miss 100% of the shots you do not take."

This quote by Wayne Gretszky, widely regarded as the best ice hockey player in NHL history, is saying that if you do not try, you’;ll never know. If you have an intention to start something or do something, do not procrastinate, JUST DO IT. Do not wait for time, or the place, or every other condition to be right, otherwise it’;ll never happen. By NOT taking action you are guaranteeing failure. Take action.

"If you’;re going through hell, keep going."

Sir Winston Churchill’;s famous words urge you not to give up hope when faced with a hopeless situation. If you’;re going through hell, you will only emerge on the other side if you keep going. Do not give up. Quitters never win, and winners never quit!

"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’;ll land among the stars ."

Les Brown, born in an abandoned building in Miami in 1945 and now one of the world’;s leading motivational speakers, tells you to aim as high as you possibly can in life and attempt things you would not normally even consider. Even if you fail, you can guarantee you’;ll be a better person in a better place than when you started.

When the world says, "Give up," hope whispers, "Try it one more time."

I do not know who these wise words can be attributed to, however they reinforce my beliefs and have taught me to never ever give up. There is ALWAYS hope. There will be times when others give up and admit defeat. Do not be one of them. Find another way, be different – Achieve Your Dreams!
