There’s power behind a few words strung together in a seamless fashion – a quote. A truly great quote, read at the right time, has the ability to impact someone’s life in some big ways. It can give someone the courage to say they are in love, it can motivate someone to travel the world, it can ignite passion and drive, or simply give someone the strength to tackle the work week.

For anyone in need of a little Monday motivation, here are a few of my favorite inspirational quotes to live by:

  • “The man who has no imagination has no wings.” – Muhammad Ali

 Growing up can sometimes result in losing sight of our creativity.  Whether in your career or daily life, don’t be afraid to dream big, take chances, be unique and pursue your wildest imaginations!

  • “It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.” -Babe Ruth

 This quote brings a little motivation to any day. Growing up, my dad always reminded me about the importance of perseverance. It’s okay to fail – or fail a hundred times, as long as you pick yourself up and keep going!

  •  “Learn from others who have walked the path before you, but be smart enough to know when to cut your own trail.” – Narciso Rodriguez

I love this quote because of the distinction between recognizing when you should follow and when you should lead – both professionally and personally. It takes humbleness to recognize when someone or something is greater than you. But it also takes confidence and intelligence to know when you can do better. Life is all about finding this balance.
