Motivation And Inspiration - A Post For People Who Want To Get Somewhere

Keeping our motivation levels up can be quite challenging sometimes when we're trying to market our small businesses - I'm sure we all understand that. And I'm sure we also understand the fact that motivation is absolutely essential in order for us to get where we want to go.

So, this morning I wanted to publish a short post that I hope will help raise your motivation levels through the roof and get you fully revved up for the coming week - I hope you enjoy!

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart" - Helen Keller


Small Business Marketing Translation

Sometimes, it feels like the world doesn't 'get' us, our marketing or even our business. That's probably because they don't - not like we do anyway. 

Only we can see the dream we have - only we can turn that dream into a reality. So, the next time it seems like your vision isn't getting through, don't worry - it's not because it's a bad idea, it's because no-one else can understand it, yet. 

Just keep going until it's a reality that everyone can see!

"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant." - Robert Louise Stevenson

Some days we don't seem to see any return on the massive effort and long hours that we are putting into our marketing strategies and businesses. Although it might feel like we're getting nowhere, this quote reminds us that all of the work we are doing is valuable. Although we don't see immediate returns on our efforts, we can know that a lot of the fruits won't show until further down the line.


All we need to do is keep the forward momentum going and we'll soon see ourselves surrounded by an abundant garden of business success, grown from the seeds of our earlier efforts :-)


"Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start" - Nido Qubein

It might be the case that sometimes we get lost somewhere along the line as we go about building our businesses and marketing plans. But that's okay! This quote reminds us that all we have to do is pause, regroup and work out a more optimal plan designed to get us where we want to go.


Our current situation never has to be an end point - it can always be the beginning of something amazing :-)


"Man never made any material as resilient as the human spirit"Bernard Williams

How true this is, and this is something we can all be very thankful for. In our business and marketing lives we're all going to suffer knocks along the way, but this is okay because we're quite simply built to handle it - nothing can stop us getting where we are going :-)



"It's never too late to be what you might have been" - George Eliot

This is along the same lines as one of the quotes above, although I love it so I wanted to include it here. Even outside of our business and marketing lives, we can understand the concept of thinking about what 'might have been'.


However, this quote reminds that it's never to late to achieve any goal - this is some of the best news ever! So, let's get busy achieving our dreams - today :-)



Thanks for reading - hope you enjoyed it and please let me know on Twitter if you have any other quotes you'd like to share!
