13 Mindful and Motivational Quotes to Inspire You
Our motivation serves as our ignition to spark change, yet what sits beneath that motivation is what compels us to keep going toward our aspirations.
Our inner strength, perseverance, and commitment add the valuable and intrinsic layers that we need when the smaller flame of our motivation has turned down to a flicker. It is completely natural that our motivation or initiator for transformation or progression will fade and falter; our motivation is largely governed by how we feel which is always up for change as our emotional nature is fluid and transient. So we move past motivation to uncover deeper levels of inner fuel and wisdom. It is what we build and manifest from the deeper chambers of our mental and emotional grit that truly make the difference between giving up and going all the way.
Wholehearted efforts and action produce valuable results. We need to exert and challenge our inner resources so we can actually begin to see, feel, and experience the measure of what we hold within. So when times are tough and motivation is weak, we should aim to focus our energy on where it is best served- utilising everything we have within to exceed even our own perceived limits.
Our motivation and inspiration is what leads us to every heart-filled, often difficult, yet great and worthy transformation. Make a decision to never settle, and to keep acting upon your higher hopes and ambitions.

Endurance is our great test. How well we stay the course is what defines us and shapes us to keep moving forward and evolve into the life we desire.

You have everything you need within you and it’s calling you to take notice. Our inner motivations are all important for directing our baby steps forward, yet it is our dynamism, sheer nerve, and pure acts of courage that see us through the larger strides and leaps we can take.
We are given challenges, tough times, and obstacles to overcome so that we continue to dig deeper to our authentic truth and inherent magic- every fall is our chance to rise. Keep your flame of motivation burning by powering yourself up from the inside!
