30 Motivational Quotes for Life

motivational quotes for lifeHere’s a list of motivational quotes for life, lessons and thoughts from various people on how to live a better life or have greater success and happiness. As with any life advice, not everything will apply to your situation. Pick and choose what you think will work best for you. Many people read these types of quotes about life to find new ideas while others read them to reaffirm what they already know. Regardless of your reason, these words are only words until you actually put them into action.

One of the greatest advice we can give is whatever it is that you want out of life, go after it; don’t leave it up to chance. If it’s something that lots of other people want and there’s a limited supply of it, you better work your butt off because your competition is doing that as you’re reading these words. Success and happiness comes to those who can define what those things mean to them and invite those things into their life by becoming the type of person who would have those things.
