Motivational Life Quotes
Here are the motivational life quotes I posted at my Motivation Facebook page for the last week of April. There are some nice short but impactful ones this time.
“Amateurs hope. Professionals work.” – Garson Kanin
“If you want to be happy, be.” – Leo Tolstoy
”In the hopes of reaching the moon men fail to see the flowers that blossom at their feet.” ~ Albert Schweitzer
”You don’t have to be the Dalai Lama to tell people that life’s about change.” ~ John Cleese
I like the one above by Albert Schweitzer a lot because to me, this is one of those motivational life quotes which suggest that although it’s great to pursue your goals, you also must take time to enjoy what is around you. It’s about overall life balance.
By the way, if you missed my video episode where I talk about play in your self help development in achieve overall life balance, make sure that you see this particular Motivational WebTV video since it presents a very important concept.
Here are the other motivational life quotes I posted last week.
“If you find yourself thinking while you’re listening, then you’re not listening.” Gordon Hampton
”Procrastination is the thief of dreams.” ~ Wayne Gretzky
”It’s not a race. It’s a journey. You win by making the most of that journey, not by being first to reach the destination.” ~ Dan Klatt
“So much of winning is beginning.” ~ Robin Sharma
The one above by George Hampton is a strong reminder for many of us. The fact is that many of us prefer to talk rather than listen when in conversation with others. We are so interested in getting our words out that when the other person talks, we don’t really listen.
This has an unfortunate consequence. Not only can the other person pick up on the fact that you are not really listening (which in turn will affect the relationship with that person), you might lose out on some important information just because you were not really paying attention. Listening is a communications skill that many people can do better with.
