A few inspiring and motivating thoughts and quotes can change your attitude and improve your life. You just have to put it into your heart and believe it. Here are the motivational life quotes that helped me to achieve my daily victories and overcome my daily obstacles.

In order to get what you want from life, the first necessary step is deciding what do you want. (Ben Shtein)

I believe we've heard so much about reaching your goals in life and fulfilling your dreams. After the graduation, I reckon, every future student is dreaming about studying law, finance or medicine. I can understand them partially – that's what almost every one wants, right? At least that's what your parents and relatives wish for you to achieve. However, the most prestigious occupations are not lawyers, doctors or bankers. The most prestigious occupation is the one which gives one the ability to unleash and realize his talent. Not everyone is born to become a lawyer or a banker. There is a countless number of professional carpenters, plumbers, engineers and drivers out there who are living their dreams. The most important rule in your life is not choosing the occupation with the highest payout. It's choosing occupation with the highest satisfaction degree. Once you start doing something just because you are passionate about it – the money will come naturally. Ant vice verse: once you start working just for money, you will most probably lose you passion and finally money. Be the one who knows what he wants and then reach for your goal. If you don't know what you want or you just think that you know – you are still searching.

If you continue doing what you have been doing until now, you will get the same results as you always have been getting. (Source unknown)

It's always hard to leave one's safe place, home, job and take a step into the unknown. When you're in school, it's nothing to worry about – you know what you have to do for the next 5 – 10 years, until graduation. You just have to study diligently and do your homework. Everything else is just fun and partying. Studying in the University is also kind of fun for 4 or 6 years – you're put in more or less tight frames and even given particular literature to study from. However, as time goes by, you start noticing that you are doing the same thing over and over again. Be it accounting, information technology, business, construction or management – there is always a point where you simply have nothing more to achieve and get. You could be making the same work procedures for 10 years and getting the same results, consequently. You could be sitting in your manager's seat and dreaming about general manager, though never getting there. Why? Simply because “actions speak louder than words” - as someone said once. It can be hard to start making progress in one's job, career, family and relationship and spending your time and energy without any reward so far. It can be hard to start learning and practicing new things, because the unknown is always frightening in some way. Someone said that it takes courage to say the first “hello, how are you doing?” to a girl (or man) that you like. And you have a choice: to stay single as you are now, or take a small step which could lead you in a great and wonderful relationship. The choice is yours.
