20 Quotes About Success & Memes About Money To Inspire You To Work Hard(er)

life quotes about success and money

So you’re sitting at work or in the middle of a class lecture and you’re bored out of your mind. All your eyes seem to do is watch the clock and you can’t wait for it to be over. But in the meantime, you still have work to do — and even more possibly outside of your hours — in order to be successful in life.

If you don’t enjoy what you do, it can be hard to find the motivation to keep going. You get trapped in the constant dredge of routine and, really, you would rather be doing literally anything other than punching numbers into a spreadsheet.

Sometimes it can be hard to find success. We might end up in a job we hate or a class where you don’t understand the professor at all — but just because you’re miserable in that moment doesn’t mean there aren’t opportunities.

Your job may be awful, but if that’s where you’re stuck at for now, why not try to be the best at that job? Or if that lecture you’re in is super confusing, try talking to the professor about it so you can find your own personal success.

And if the prospect of success isn’t enough to motivate you, there’s always money.

Money makes the world go ‘round, right? Without out, there’s not much you can do. You need it to pay rent, car insurance and a bunch of other stuff. Though your job may feel terrible, at least you get the dollars you need to pay for the necessities.

Of course, money shouldn’t be everything. Although it can do a lot for you, don’t make money priority number one. That will just lead to greed, and you know what they say: “Money can’t buy happiness.” Or maybe it can, I don’t know. Whatever works for you.

Regardless, if you find yourself feeling demotivated and needing a boost, here are some great quotes about success and some memes about money to help you feel inspired so you can go out there and get the life you want.
