quotes i loved from my fav newsletter • february 2020

I LOVE the Monday Morning Lift: a bi-weekly {Monday & Friday} newsletter that’s FULL of suuuuper motivating, inspiring, & positive quotes.

It’s always a fun conversation starter because it always leads to HUGE conversations about our dreams for the future, goals, & work we have to do to get them.

SO- I wanted to share my fav quotes & the ones that really resonated with me in February 2020. Enjoy!

my fav quotes from the monday morning lift

“Become a millionaire not for the million dollars, but for what it will make of you to achieve it.” ~Jim Rohn

“The devil ain’t got no power over me. The devil come, and me shake hands with the devil. Devil have his part to play. Devil’s a good friend, too… because when you don’t know him, that’s the time he can mosh you down.” ~Bob Marley

“Success is never due to one thing, but failure can be. Sleeping well won’t make you successful, but not sleeping enough will hold you back. Hard work is rarely enough without good strategy, but even the best strategy is useless without hard work. Many things are necessary, but not sufficient for success.” ~James Clear

“Never postpone a good deed which you can do now, because death does not choose whether you have or haven’t done the things you should have done. Death waits for nobody and nothing. It has neither enemies, nor friends.” ~Indian Proverb

“Connecting is what breaks the walls of separateness and dissolves the ego. It is our ego that makes us feel separate, disconnected from one another, cut off from love. Being present is what connects us. This takes discipline and hard work and is not for the faint of heart. By slowing it down we actually get more done. Nothing conveys love more than paying attention.” ~Chandra Alexander

“Nickels and dimes are worth less than that. The real asset you’re building is trust. And even though it’s tempting to cut a corner here and there to boost profit per interaction, the real cost is huge. No one will say anything, no one will put up a fuss, until one day, they’re gone. Those extra few dollars you made with some fancy footwork have now cost you tens of thousands of dollars in lost value. The opposite is clearly true: invest a nickel or a dime every chance you get, and the trust you earn pays for itself a hundred times over.” ~Seth Godin

“You are richer than 93% of people. Not in money, but in time. 108 billion people have lived throughout history. 93% of them are dead. You have what every king and queen, every pharaoh and ruler, every CEO and celebrity of the past would give all their wealth for: Today.” ~James Clear

“The loudest boos always come from the cheapest seats.” ~Babe Ruth

“When you’re good at something you’ll tell everyone. When you’re great at something they’ll tell you.” ~Walter Payton

“If you let your learning lead to knowledge, you become a fool. If you let your learning lead to action, you become wealthy.” ~Jim Rohn

“What we call reality is, in fact, nothing more than a culturally sanctioned and linguistically reinforced hallucination.” ~Terence McKenna

“David never referred to himself as ‘a Man after God’s own Heart’—God said that about him. Stay away from being self-proclaimed. You are God ordained.” ~Chris Durso 

“Draw a perfect circle. Use a compass or a plotter. Now, zoom in. If you zoom in close enough, you’ll discover that it’s not a perfect circle at all. In fact, anything we create, at close enough magnification, isn’t perfect. It’s foolish to wait until you’ve made something that’s perfect, because you never will. The alternative is to continue to move toward your imaginary ideal, shipping as you iterate. Getter better is the path to better.” ~Seth Godin, Toward Perfect

“The more resistance you experience, the more important your unmanifested art/project/enterprise is to you – and the more gratification you will fell when you finally do it.” ~Steven Pressfield

“Destroy the idea that you have to be constantly working or grinding in order to be successful. Embrace the concept that rest, recovery and reflection are essential parts of the progress towards a successful and happy life.” ~Steven Mehr

“Even still, if you’re doing work you genuinely care about, and if you have a goal that truly compels and excites you, then you will have resistance. Resistance reflects how genuine you are about your craft and your future. Taking ‘Shots’ is evidence that you’re starting to believe in that future.” ~Dr. Ben Hardy, You Miss Every Shot You Don’t Take

Second Half of the Chessboard: Put one grain of rice on the first chessboard square, two on the next, four on the next, then eight, then sixteen, etc, doubling the amount of rice on each square. When you’ve covered half the chessboard’s squares you’re dealing with an amount of rice that can fit in your lap; in the second half you quickly get to a pile that will consume an entire city. That’s how compounding works: slowly, then ferociously.” ~Morgan Housel, 100 Little Ideas

“Don’t ever wrestle with a pig. You’ll both get dirty, but the pig will enjoy it.” ~Cale Yarborough

“Aim to be great in 10 years. Build health habits today that lead to a great body in 10 years. Build social habits today that lead to great relationships in 10 years. Build learning habits today that lead to great knowledge in 10 years. Long-term thinking is a secret weapon.” ~James Clear
