Quotes to Live By 011

Who can pass up on some good quotes? I know I sure can’t! Today I want to share with you some of the quotes I’ve found recently and really have enjoyed. Please feel free to share your opinion on the quotes as well as share your favorite quotes in the comment section below.

“I never dreamt of success. I worked for it.” – Estee Lauder

Dreaming of your goals is great and all, but what is the point of dreaming if you don’t put the work in to achieve them? You want something, quit dreaming of it and go out and get it.

“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” – Thomas Edison

This quote basically goes along with the one above it. Opportunities are constantly knocking and you’re constantly staring at them right in the face however they may seem disguised because it seems like too much work. Let me tell you something, you won’t get far in life or as successful as you want to be if you don’t put a lot of effort and work into what you desire. Work for what you want and take any opportunity that will help you advance in life; it’s hard work now but it will pay off later.

“Care about what other people think, and you will always be their prisoner.” – Lao Tzu

We go through life scared of judgement, scared of what people will say about our actions, choices or style. If you are constantly more concerned with what others will say and think of you, you will only be a prisoner to them – you won’t be allowed to do or say what you want, you won’t be allowed to live to your highest potential; instead you’ll be trapped in the confines of others thoughts on you. Live life for you, don’t care what others have to say about you.
