Finding motivation in quotes from icons

Those who strive to be successful usually hit several brick walls on their road, finding positive links to keep you going is not just recommended but necessary. You need to source inspirational characters to give you that edge to keep doing what it is that you do. This negative time is just part of the process, very few people actually have the will power or drive to keep going when they are losing or can't find the right path.

Quotes from iconic figures usually keep people going, forcing yourself to think like icons and really understand their wisdom is part of development to success. Here are a few of my favourite quotes from icons in history and present.

“The reason most people fail instead of succeed is they trade what they want most for what they want at the moment.”

“From the sublime to the ridiculous there is but one step”
― Napoleon

“All great events hang by a hair. The man of ability takes advantage of everything and neglects nothing that can give him a chance of success; whilst the less able man sometimes loses everything by neglecting a single one of those chances.”
― Napoleon

Take the time to read about Napoleon Bonaparte and you will soon realise he seemed crazy but was actually on his own level of thinking and understanding. Turning to these short sentences when everything isn't going your way might just keep you going, time is important, every minute, every second can define the difference between making or missing what you want.
Here are more quotes that may help you:

"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence."

Helen Keller
"Things do not happen. Things are made to happen."

John F. Kennedy

"Big shots are only little shots who keep shooting."

Christopher Morley

These are a few I like to keep printed around my room, seems sad but positive words surrounding you is a great influence when looking to the stars. These quotes were from which is a great source for inspirational help in the form of quotes.
