A Clever Way to Use Quotes to Boost Your Motivation

Quotes are very meaningful to me. I use them to create motivation for myself.

I LOVE quotes. Actually, saying that I love them really doesn’t do it justice.  Maybe I’m even a little obsessed with quotes.  Some of my favorite quotes have been an influence on my life for decades.

The problem is remembering the lessons I’ve learned from them.  I have a ton of great quotes I keep on my Pinterest board – literally hundreds of them.  Many of them are very meaningful to me.  You can print images from Instagram, but for some reason, I’ve never found a site that lets you print images from Pinterest.  So, I found a way to do it myself.

What I do is go through my board and I pick out the quotes that really speak to me.  Then I just save them to my phone or my computer.  I have an app for Snapfish that lets me print 100 free 4 X 6 photos per month for just the price of shipping,  so I just upload them and print them.

Then I take the prints and I scatter them around on my desk, on my bathroom counter, on my mirrors, etc.  And then I change them around every couple of weeks.  That way, as I’m going about my day, these little messages are just sinking into my subconscious all day long and providing a positive inspiration for me.

I have an idea that I’d like to create an area in my house, like a meditation spot. I can have some quiet time there and I would LOVE to make a sort of wallpaper out of all my favorite quotes.  It’s funny how they become like old friends after you’ve seen them around for a period of time.  I think that’s when the deeper meaning of them really sinks in.  Give it a try!

  1. I have a lot of my favorite quotes on a cork board in my room. I keep most of them in a journal. I love having them handy when I need a boost or some encouragement. I love your idea of having them as wallpaper! But I might never leave that room. LOL

  2. I love the first one! Hadn’t heard it before and will certainly remember it.

    • Thank you! I found another one just today – Don’t swim the ocean for someone who wouldn’t cross a puddle for you. The applies to a lot of people I know and I’m totally that swim the ocean without a second thought type of person… Lessons to learn.

  3. I love quotes, and I think most people do because I get great feedback when I share inspiring quotes. They are a lot of wisdom in a little bit of text! I think having them scroll on my phone would be nice…

    • That’s a good idea too. I also like to have them around my house. In fact from where I’m sitting, I can read four different quotes on my walls and that’s just in one room. I think I just really LIKE words.

  4. I am obsessed with quotes too! It is a great idea to print them out and strategically place around the house to motivate and inspire you every day. I should definitely try that!

  5. Great quotes!

    • Thanks. I really find this to be a useful technique to just boost my spirits in general and keep my self on track, and we all know how hard that can be.
