You've probably seen motivational posters hanging on office walls in reality or on television. Some of them seem silly, but they can really help motivate you when you're not in the mood to get your work done. You should hang one up in your room in order to see for yourself. If you don't want to buy an actual motivational poster, here are a few uplifting quotes from them that you can print out to hang on your wall:
It doesn't matter what you're trying to accomplish in life, because you're always going to be met with obstacles. However, you shouldn't let them deter you from your goals. Don't even pay attention to those obstacles if they force you to take your eyes off of the prize. Focus on what you're doing and let everything else become background noise.
Streams wouldn't look as beautiful if they were empty. The curves and rocks in them are what make them so special. Believe it or not, it's the same with life. Challenges are beautiful experiences. If everything was easy for you, then you wouldn't be able to appreciate the good things in life as much as you do now.
Instead of being mad at yourself for turning down certain opportunities when you were younger, you should be focusing on opening up opportunities for yourself right now. You're never too old to follow your dreams. If you have a goal that you want to accomplish, then push aside all of your fears and try to accomplish it. Sitting around feeling sorry for yourself won't help you in any way.
You shouldn't play it safe, just because you're scared of taking risks. If you'd be happier as an actress than as an accountant, you should take the riskier path. Even though you might end up broke and homeless, at least you'll be following your dreams. If the reward outweighs the risk, then you should be brave and go for it.
Your future isn't set in stone. You're capable of creating whatever type of life that you'd like to have. So if you aren't happy with your major or your boyfriend, get a new one. The only thing you're destined to do is make your own choices.
Life is always going to throw curveballs at you, which is why it's important to be flexible. If you want a good job, you'll have to be flexible with your hours. If you want a healthy relationship, you'll have to be flexible with your compromises. Every area of life requires you to be flexible, so try to keep your options open.
Silly, spoof motivational posters can be just as inspiring as the real thing. After all, you should be appreciative of everything you have in life. Things could always be worse. That doesn't mean you're not permitted to complain about the problems you do have. It just means that you should learn to appreciate the little things that you do have.
The simplest quote could encourage you to follow your dreams. That's why you should always have inspirational things hanging up around your workplace. Do you have any motivational posters hanging up in your room or office? What do they say?
