8 Inspirational Quotes to Keep Going
During the Tough Times

Inspirational Quotes

We all face difficult moments at some point in our lives. Even the most wealthy, successful people on earth struggle at times. This struggle might not be a financial one, but more of a mental one. 

Positive words are sometimes all we need in times of mental hardships. Life doesn't always play out the way we wish it would. Life's messy and not always easy. 

Finding the right inspirational quotes to keep going is essential for anyone. Maybe you're having a rough time finding the right career path. Maybe you're having financial hardships or troubles with family and friends. 

No matter what your unique struggle is, there's a motivational quote to keep you going. Continue reading below for a list of inspirational quotes to keep you going.

1. “Once You Replace Negative Thought With Positive One, You’ll Start Having Positive Results.” - Willie Nelson

The more you center negative thoughts in your mind, the more negativities you'll face in life. It's similar to when you never spot a blue car on the road but right after someone mentions buying a blue car, you then all of a sudden see blue cars everywhere. 

If you have negative thoughts in your mind, you'll only see the negative in things. Change this. Let go of the negatives. 

Focus on the positives in all situations. Once you place positive thoughts at the center of your mind, you'll begin to see all the positives in life.

2. "I Always Like to Look on the Optimistic Side of Life, But I Am Realistic Enough to Know That Life Is a Complex Matter." - Walt Disney

We know what you're thinking after reading the first quote. That's why we're following it with this one from Walt Disney. Looking at the optimistic side of things is easier said than done. 

Once you get a hang of it though, it becomes a habit. It's a good idea to remember that life is complex, however. It's okay to look at the positives but still remember that life's going to get hard at times. 

Give yourself permission to be sad at times. Let it all out, then pick yourself back up and start new. If you expect there to be some hurdles at times, then you'll have no trouble getting over them when needed.

3. “What You Get by Achieving Your Goals Is Not as Important as What You Become by Achieving Your Goals." - Zig Ziglar 

Have you ever heard the saying, "it's not the destination but the journey?" The destination is the final goal, but the journey is what molds you into the person you are trying to become.

In the end, you wouldn't have been able to reach your end goal if you didn't complete your own personal transition along the way. All of those hardships you're facing while trying to reach that promotion or earn that degree, are what makes you in the end. 

Don't be so willing to give up. If it was easy to accomplish everyone would do it. Because it was difficult to achieve, it makes the goal that much sweeter. 

4. “You Are Never Too Old to Set Another Goal or to Dream a New Dream.” - C.S. Lewis 

You're mid-age or maybe a bit younger or older. You feel as though you've hit a plateau in life. You're not fulfilled and feel like you need more, but you think you're too old to make a change. 

You're not. 

You're never too old to set yourself some new goals. Many people decide to go back to college or start college at an older age. Some people decide to start a new business venture at an old age. 

What's really stopping you other than yourself?

5. “You Do Not Find the Happy in Life. You Make It.” - Camilla Eyring Kimball

A mistake that many people make is trying to find the happy in life. If you spend all your time searching for things or people that make you happy, you might never find it. Instead, do things that make you happy. 

Be your own happiness. If you begin to implement things that make you happy into your daily routine, then will you really need to search for happiness anymore? 

Once you start creating your own happiness, you'll begin to attract other positive things to you. 

6. “Stay Close to Anything That Makes You Glad You Are Alive.” - Hafez

If you go looking for happiness in others, you might not find it. There's a good chance, however, that there are many things close to you that make you happy and glad to be alive. 

Take a few moments to consider what these things are. What people in your life make you feel good about yourself when you're around them? Do you have pets that bring you joy?

Create a list of these things and then be sure to keep them close by. Spend as much time with them as possible, because life's too short to spend it with people who don't make you happy. 

7. “Don’t Wait. The Time Will Never Be Just Right.” - Napoleon Hill

Have you thought about making a jump in life for quite some time now? You want to switch careers, you want to ask someone on a date, or something else. You haven't done it yet because you're afraid the timing isn't right. 

“Don’t wait. The time will never be just right." -Napoleon Hill. 

Take that leap right now. If you wait around for the right time, then you might never do it. It's the uncomfortable things in life that push us to grow. 

8. “A Champion Is Defined Not by Their Wins But by How They Can Recover When They Fall.” - Serena Williams

You have to make a leap if you want to be successful. It's okay to fail, however. The more times you take that jump, the more chances you have at falling, but the more chances you have at finding success as well. 

It's not about the win or losses. It's about how you pick yourself back up after you fall. If you keep going, you're only bettering your chances of getting to where you want to be. 

Inspirational quotes are a great way to keep yourself in the right mindset, but it's up to you to push yourself forward over and over again.
