Most pages of this site feature a random action quote appearing on the right side of the page. But if you really need an extended kick-in-the-butt, you can spend some time here going through all of the quotes in one location. I visit this section frequently, so don't feel like you're the only one needing inspiration from time to time.
Check back often as I'm adding new ones regularly. The page below displays quotes in the order I've added them. Enjoy.
"You must do the things you think you cannot do."
“(On writing:)“Like most things on the planet, thinking about doing it is a lot worse than simply sitting down and doing it. The writing wasn’t hard to do, you just need to plant ass in seat and go from there.”
“Your greatest chance at success comes when you have the least steps to take in order to achieve your goal with excellence.”
“The solutions are simple. We should get up early, work hard, and avoid things that waste time in our lives. Yes, it is easier said than done, but to be honest, reading another time management book is not the answer.”
“If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.”
“Motion beats meditation.”
“Consistent action leads to massive results. The positive results lead to self belief. That self belief causes you to take more action. That action leads to more results, greater potential and towards success.”
“There are an infinite number of new opportunities. Actively seek them out, and position yourself to recognize and take advantage of them.”
“Few success stories occur because the person is a super-genius. Almost all success stories are based on perseverance and a commitment and consistency to doing the work and believing in themselves.”
“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”
“The failure to act is much more often the product of inner, emotional resistance than external resistance. To move forward you must give up your story, whether it is excuses about your childhood, lack of education, your “bad luck”, your unsupportive family, your low metabolism, where you live, etc.”
“Start before you’re ready. Do the work! A child has no trouble believing the unbelievable, nor does the genius or the madman. It’s only you and I, with our big brains and our tiny hearts, who doubt and overthink and hesitate.”
“The harsh truth is that YOU need to take responsibility for your failures, successes, and lack of action. That is the number one reason people never get what they want – No personal responsibility.”
“A year from now you may wish you had started today.”
“Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are.”
“I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.”
“Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.”
“I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”
"It’s really that simple. In order to get something done, you must first get started. In order to complete the project, you must do everything that needs to get done."
"Thinking will not overcome fear but action will."
