Everybody needs a little bit of motivation and inspiration in our lives. Sometimes life simply doesn’t go the way we had planned. It is good to stay positive and move forward with our lives when things don’t go our way. Whether you need some daily inspiration because you have had a lousy day or you need a little extra motivation to get you up and moving to finish your daily workout, there is a little bit of something for everyone if you continue to read on. You are not alone, so hopefully these positive and inspirational life quotes will get you on the right track.
Maybe you go off to college and get a little homesick. It is really going to be alright. There is inspiration around every corner. There are many times in our lives where nothing seems to be going right. Whether you didn’t get the promotion you were looking for or maybe you lost your job all together. It is important to remember that for as many times we fail, we succeed just the same.
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” –Michael Jordan
Even people as successful as Michael Jordan understand that it is not always easy to fail. But he also realizes that in order to succeed we have to fail. We would never learn from our mistakes and strive for more in our lives if we didn’t fail at some point. Don’t beat yourself up about it, it happens to everyone.
Knowing how to meet new people in college is the best way to get over being homesick. The easiest way is simply to strike up a conversation with someone who is already in class with you. I mean, you already have something in common, you’re both enrolled in the same class. When you stop off for that morning coffee you chat up the barista or maybe someone in line that piques your interest. All it takes is a few words to get the ball rolling and then maybe you won’t be out getting your morning coffee all by yourself!
You can also join clubs and groups to see if you can meet some people with similar interests as you. If you are on the school paper it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to make friends with a journalism major or someone on the paper with you. Common ground is the first building block in creating a beautiful relationship. You will be spending the next four years with these people. You might as well make the best of it.
