100 Self-Motivation Quotes To Get You Through This Week

self motivation quotes

Sometimes finding the motivation to even get out of bed can be very hard — especially on Monday, when you've got the whole week ahead of you. So using some self-motivation quotes can help you feel inspired to take on the new week with a positive attitude.

It's hard to find the will to live at the beginning of the workweek, or if you are stuck at home in quarantine — doing nothing because there isn't anything to do. The best thing you can do is remind yourself that you have the chance to really find happiness and something greater to live for.

You just have to set your mind to it and try. Let yourself out of your comfort zone and see all the new opportunities out there just waiting for you.

Even if you fail a few times, you just need to get back up and start again. You will eventually find your place in life, and it may just be in a place where you least expect it.

Self-motivation is what you really need to find a new outlook on life. When you believe in yourself, you are unstoppable.

The best thing you can do is take these the best motivational quotes and make daily reminder cards that you can change out each day to keep you inspired day after day. Let them be the first thing you look at when you wake up and when you go to bed.

It's a great way to affirm to yourself that you can do it, even if you may not believe it at the moment.

Affirmations are something you need most to start believing that you are capable of so much more. When you can start to realize that you are perfect just the way you are, you will be unstoppable.

Nothing can bring you down as long as you truly feel confident in your heart and soul.

It can also be hard when you have someone in your life who puts you down or causes you to question yourself. You should never let others dictate how you should perceive yourself.

Life with other people can be hard sometimes, too, because words do hurt — especially when said by the people we love most — but you have to be able to recognize what someone is doing, and not take their words to heart.

I know, it's easier said than done, but when you don't let others hurt you, you will be so much more powerful than they could ever be. When someone puts you down and plays with your insecurities, they do so because they are weak and insecure in themselves. They want to appear stronger than they actually are.

But above all else, you are your own motivation. You have so much to live for, you just need to feel like you can do it. Remember, you are the only one that can hold yourself back.

So, instead of focusing on the negatives, look at the positives because it will change your whole perspective in life.

Take a look below at 100 of the best self-motivation quotes that will start you off on a new direction this week so you can find the inspirational messages you so desperately need right now.
