10 Quotes To Conquer With

I’m a bit of a quote geek. I look for quotes that capture the way I feel–or want to feel–in any situation. I strongly believe words can move you; and when I’m doubting myself, these are the words I look to for inner strength. These are quotes to conquer with.

1.

“Note to self: every time you were convinced you couldn’t go on, you did.” —Unknown

[Tweet “”Note to self: every time you were convinced you couldn’t go on, you did.” —Unknown”]

No truer words have ever been spoken. You are here reading this post, you’ve survived everything life has thrown at you. Keep moving!

2. “Though no one can go back and make a brand-new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand-new ending.” —Carl Bard

[Tweet “”Though no one can go back and make a brand-new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand-new ending.” —Carl Bard”]

As much as we’d love to change the past, we just can’t. We can, however, make the most out of the time we have left. Don’t dwell!

3. “When your mascara is $23 there’s no time for crying.” —Unknown
[Tweet “”When your mascara is $23 there’s no time for crying.” —Unknown”]

Even if your mascara is $8, keep calm and carry on! Hey, that’s also a motivational quote 🙂

4. “If you hang out with chickens, you’re going to cluck. But if you hang out with eagles, you’re going to fly.”—Dr Steve Maraboli

[Tweet “”If you hang out with chickens, you’re going to cluck. But if you hang out with eagles, you’re going to fly.”—Dr Steve Maraboli”]

You know what they say, you are who you hang out with.

5. “She was unstoppable. Not because she did not have failures or doubts, but because she continued on despite them.”—Beau Taplin

[Tweet “”She was unstoppable. Not because she did not have failures or doubts, but because she continued on despite them.”—Beau Taplin”]

The most successful people have failed more times than you think. What makes them different is their persistence. They never stopped trying.

6. “The man on top of the mountain didn’t fall there.”—Vince Lombardi

[Tweet “”The man on top of the mountain didn’t fall there.”—Vince Lombardi”]

I love this one; this was my inspiration for this post’s feature photo.

7. “A tiger doesn’t lose sleep over the opinion of sheep.”—Unknown

[Tweet “”A tiger doesn’t lose sleep over the opinion of sheep.”—Unknown”]

There will always be people ready to tear you down– don’t let them get to you. Don’t even look their way.

8. “You have to be odd to be number one.” —Unknown

[Tweet “”You have to be odd to be number one.” —Unknown”]

We spend our high school years (and some of our adulthood)  trying to “fit in”. You were born to stand out. That, my friend, is what people will remember about you.

9. “Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down.” —Charles F. Kettering

This is very true. Rarely do opportunities simply fall into our laps. You’ve got to work for them, and…

10. “Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.”

—Thomas J. Watson

…learn from your mistakes and don’t make the same one twice. Learn, grow, and conquer.
