Getting knocked down in life is a given. Getting up and moving forward is a choice. ~ Zig Ziglar
Discovering the right quote at the right time can make the difference between whether we reach our highest potential in life or not. I am always on the lookout for good quotes— ones that inspire me. Whether they be from famous thinkers or not-so-famous ones, quotes can be the words that motivate us to take another step, inspire us to try again, or improve our belief in ourselves and what we are capable of.
Today’s quote spoke to me for the obvious reason. There will be times when life knocks you down or when life at least shakes you around a bit. When that happens, you have to make the choice to get up and move forward.
Zig Ziglar’s quote also spoke to me because as I look at the calendar, I realize how quickly 2012 is coming to an end. I am already looking forward to 2013. In addition to the many exciting Be Unlimited projects that are coming, there are personal goals that I am also planning for.
It’s good to have things to look forward to. Looking forward leads to motion. People who don’t go forward in life remain stuck. Whether you’ve been knocked down or if you’ve just lost sight of a better vision for yourself and for your life, I encourage you to find something worth looking forward to. Remember, it’s a choice. Make it your choice. Hopefully these words spark something in you: an idea, an action, a change.
You never know where your source of inspiration will come from. As always, be on the lookout for quotes that speak to you. Stay open to the possibilities of what you can discover in the world and in yourself. And keep moving forward!
Be better. Be inspired. Be unlimited.
