Motivational Quotes You Should Print and Look at Daily

By , Alicia Capetillo, Editor-in-Chief
Motivation is a fleeting concept. No one wakes up every single day feeling like they want to go crush their workouts and eat all the kale. No, some days, even the most dedicated people just want to blow off their workout, sink into the couch and eat leftover pizza.

If you're someone who struggles to find motivation daily, though, it could be worth looking into why you're not excited about your fitness or eating routine anymore. Perhaps you've grown tired of walking the same loop around the city after work. Maybe the meal plan you've set for yourself used to please your taste buds, but lately everything is just tasting bland. It might just be that you've reached a new level of health and need to step things up to continue feeling challenged and inspired to achieve. Even the most exciting plan can get stale after so many weeks of the same, and it's important to change things up every so often to continue growing, getting stronger and getting healthier. 

As you work to find your motivation again, something as simple as a great mantra or quote can have the power to push you to make it to that 5:30 p.m. workout or get over to the grocery story to buy ingredients for that tasty new recipe you bookmarked. The next time you're feeling blah and can't fathom going through any kind of effort to be your best self, steal one of these powerful quotes for an added boost. Repeating the words to yourself in your head or in front of a mirror might just be the thing you need to get through this motivational slump and get back to achieving.

What's your go-to motivational quote? What saying gets your pumped for achieving your goals?

Make life and everything possible in it a little more fun--Serious is for planning the end not the during.Note I said 'possible' things fun that doesn't mean everything-some people on Spark will just want to tear that one apart woo hoo.

What got me through 100 mile endurance horse races was my favorite quote: "They shall mount up on wings of eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31). That and the thought that I could always make it to the next tree up the mountain! We can always do something for short periods of time. . . Report
