On the whole, January is not a great month, in fact, it's pretty dire. We all hate it, everyone. Christmas is over, New Year's Eve is over and we are all feeling a little bit under the weather with colds and just want winter to now be over and worst of all, we're all trying DRY JANUARY, eurgh!! Roll in Spring & Summer with new beginnings, beauty, and wonderful sun. That's a few months away yet, so, if you're feeling a little unmotivated due to the dreariness of January and Winter in general, we have created a list of our favourite motivational and inspirational quotes to get you through.
“Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.”
– Jim Rohn
“Don’t worry about failures, worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try.”
It's true. Failures are imperative to success- if you don't experience mistakes how are you going to learn from them? Don't worry if you fail, you can always get back up and start again. The main thing is you tried.
"We live in the kind of society where, in almost all cases, hard work is rewarded." - Neil deGrasse Tyson
Unfortunately, the bitter truth is, you have to work hard to get what you want in life. But that isn't to say what you want to achieve is impossible.
"Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did." - Newt Gingrich
Perseverance is a word I throw around a lot. I believe strongly in it, if you keep going and keep trying and something, it will happen, maybe not the first, second, or even 100th time. But it will happen if you keep trying.
"Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work. I live by that. You grind hard so you can play hard. At the end of the day, you put all the work in, and eventually it'll pay off. It could be in a year, it could be in 30 years. Eventually, your hard work will pay off." - Kevin Hart
“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.” – Bill Cosby
You have to want what you want to get it. So much so that it should consume your fear of failure and drive you to the top. Again, don't worry about failure.
“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” - Lucille Ball
Lucille Ball has got it spot on. You have to love yourself to get something done, you should adore yourself. Wake up and look in the mirror and say 'I f**king rock!! I'm going to smash it today'. If you can't do that, learn to work on it.
“I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you." - Roy Croft
They always say find someone who brings the best out in you. Be with someone who makes you a better version of yourself.
These are just a few of my favourite quotes on motivation and inspiration which I hope will also inspire and motivate you this year. Remember, small steps every day and you will make it to the top of your mountain.
On that note, have a happy and wholesome 2017 everyone! The future of Maison de Choup is growing in a very positive way. Thank you all for joining the journey.
Much love ❤️
