1001 Motivational Quotes for Success Great Quotes from Great Minds: If you are like most people, you know it can be hard to stay motivated and focused 365 days a year whether it be at work, home, school, etc. Especially on those gloomy Monday mornings. Some people listen to their favorite song to get them energized, some read an uplifting story, and others may watch an inspiring movie. .the list goes on. I happen to like reading quotes from successful people.

I have quotes placed anywhere that I can see them; in my bedroom, my car, and in my office. Sometimes I come into the office and feel a little lethargic and less motivated than I should be in order to do my job effectively. I need something extra besides a cup of strong coffee to get me going. All I do is read a quote from my favorite author or businessman, and I seem to get myself back on track. I put this collection of quotes together to help you do the same.

We all have the capabilities to achieve just as much success in life as anyone else. All we need to do is stay motivated and focused, have specific goals and act on them. My hope is that this book gives all of you the extra push you need to get out there and grab life by the horns and achieve all the success life has to offer.
