Encouraging Quotes

In dark times of distress or worry, I always search for inspiration in people that went against the grain and against all odds succeeded. I search for inspiration in people that went out on a limb and were not afraid of what other people thought of them or whether they would fail. I search for inspiration in those epic people who put their lives in danger to change the world and I also search for inspiration in very mundane scenarios such as that one girl in class that is confident and is not afraid to look foolish by asking too many questions.

Because I know these people overcome their darkness. Everybody in the world, be it the President, a Prime Minister, an army chief, or even a billionaire all face times of self-doubt in their lives. Moments where they are weak and doubt their abilities, moments where they think they fail. But even still they are able to push these insecurities to the side and act and this why they have sustained success.

These 41 encouraging quotes you are about to read, are from these types of strong, bold people I have mentioned above. People who have faced many struggles in their lives but were able to re-ignite the flame in their heart and stay inspired and motivated. I hope you will be able to learn from these quotes, be encouraged by them, and incorporate their wisdom into your daily lives.
