Motivational quotes about life make you fight when you don't want to fight. Motivational quotes make you stand when you don't want to stand. I use them to keep myself on my feet in tough times, or to uplift the spirit of a melancholic friend.
Movie Motivational Quotes
"They're just words but they make me stand when all I wanted to do was to lie down." ~ Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman), Invictus
A word is a double edged sword that can hurt or make good to the people around you. Choose your words carefully as they often become true. I also got the quote "I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul" from this movie.
"It doesn't have to be special, you just have to believe it's special." ~ Kung Fu Panda
Kung Fu Panda was asking his dad about the secret formula to their noodle soup. His dad told him that there is no secret formula. The secret was that in order for something to be special, doesn't necessarily have to be special but you just have to believe it's special. I treat all my creations special including this blog.
"You can't score if you don't take a shot ~ Dwayne Johnson/The Rock in the Tooth Fairy"
This is to say that you wouldn't know how something will turn out if you don't try doing it. This is applicable in things such as starting up a business or making investments.
"Nothing is impossible" ~ Stanley Jobson (Hugh Jackman), Swordfish
This quote has always inspired me to go through things I don't understand or don't know about but I really wanted to do. I always wanted to work in the Information Technology industry and back then, my skills weren't competitive enough. But I believed that nothing is impossible and I was able to achieve my dream. Now, I want to have my own business. Nothing is impossible.
"This isn't how I die" ~ Edward Bloom (Ewan McGregor), Big Fish
Just a short quote but let me explain to you what it means to me... When I was young, I always thought of defying the so called thing called destiny. What I mean is if the path set before me was to FAIL, I refuse to accept it. This isn't how I die. Edward Blook had a vision through a witch's eye when he was young (along with fellow friends) on how he would die. When he got caught up in some forest, he got tangled up in some sort of vine but instead of thinking helpless, he recalled the old witch's prediction and said to himself, "This isn't how I die".
I hope these motivational quotes, though simple will also help and motivate you today! Do you have something motivational to share?
