Whether you’re reading this on December 31st 2019, January 1st 2020 or somewhere in 2020 or even later on – quotes are always welcome. While writing this, it’s still 2019 and I’m going to give you the best motivation to kick ass in 2020. Even if you’re reading this halfway through the year. Each day is a new opportunity to start a new journey and work hard for your goals. Whether they’re focused on business, mindset or health. Enjoy these inspirational quotes.
I decided to not divide the inspirational quotes into different sections. That’s something I did before and it’s so easy to just look at the ones you know you would like. However, little thingy in my mind told me to just have it all together and keep an open mind. Inspirational quotes can change our perspective just a tiny bit and change something. Maybe you didn’t know you needed that quote. I have that quite often – not realizing I actually needed to read it and how much it motivates me and inspires me to do that one thing I’ve been keeping off for so long. You can write them down in your phone or notebook to keep you motivated during the process. Or you can save this blog and look back at it whenever you want. Whatever works for you!

I’m hoping these inspirational quotes gave you the motivation and will drive you into working towards your goals. It’s not a shame that we’re all sometimes unmotivated, uninspired and need to look for reasons to keep going and keep working hard. Those moments do not make us weak, they make us human. It’s what we do with those moments that count. Do we sit back and let time pass while doing nothing? Or do we take a breath, gather our strength and keep moving? I’m wishing you a very happy 2020, or whatever year or month you’re reading this. As I said before, everyday is a new beginning and a new possibility to change. Why wait till the new year when you can start today?
