19 Inspirational Quotes to Squeeze More Juice out of Life

There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing and be nothing - Aristotle

Ever feel you could be doing more, achieving more, living more?

Do you set goals and put together your latest ‘vision board’ only to realise you’ve been doing this for years without really moving forward with your life?

So why are these tools not working for you like they seem to work for other people?

Visualization is an excellent way of firming up a vision of your preferred future. They set your sights, a bit like taking aim at a target. But perhaps that’s where you stopped. You are simply not prepared to pull the metaphorical trigger.

You see, there’s no point in just dreaming about what you want and hoping the Universe will fill in the gap between where you are and where you want to be. You have to take action, take responsibility for your own happiness and commit to a strategic plan to manifest your dream.

Every journey starts with that first step. Ask yourself ‘what can I do right here, right now to take me closer to my dream?’

And don’t be put off by set backs or mistakes. They will happen, that’s for sure, but chalk them up to experience and wisdom.

If life throws you lemons, make lemonade. Here are 19 inspirational quotes to keep you motivated and help you squeeze more juice out of life.
