Motivational Quotes to get you going for 2017

On the whole, January is not a great month, in fact, it's pretty dire. We all hate it, everyone. Christmas is over, New Year's Eve is over and we are all feeling a little bit under the weather with colds and just want winter to now be over and worst of all, we're all trying DRY JANUARY, eurgh!! Roll in Spring & Summer with new beginnings, beauty, and wonderful sun. That's a few months away yet, so, if you're feeling a little unmotivated due to the dreariness of January and Winter in general, we have created a list of our favourite motivational and inspirational quotes to get you through. 

 On Life 

“Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.”– Dennis P. Kimbro

Life is always throwing things at us, always. Every decision we make is our own and you can change the decisions you make. It's your life, write your story. 

“Look at the sparrows; they do not know what they will do in the next moment. Let us literally live from moment to moment.”– Mahatma Gandhi 

In some way or another, we all live in the past or future, we're always looking back or looking to the future which is in fact, quite toxic. There is definitely something to be learned from Gandhi's quote- if we just live in the present moment and take certain situations as they come we may have a calmer view on something. However, that being said, we should be prepared for situations in life.

“Either you run the day, or the day runs you.” – Jim Rohn

One of my favourite quotes on life. If you're not enjoying something today/tomorrow or any day, change it. You are not governed by your days, there are 365 days in a year, that is 365 opportunities (361 now). If you don't like something, change it. Own your day!

 “Don’t worry about failures, worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try.”– Jack Canfield

It's true. Failures are imperative to success- if you don't experience mistakes how are you going to learn from them? Don't worry if you fail, you can always get back up and start again. The main thing is you tried.

 On Work

"We live in the kind of society where, in almost all cases, hard work is rewarded." - Neil deGrasse Tyson

Unfortunately, the bitter truth is, you have to work hard to get what you want in life. But that isn't to say what you want to achieve is impossible. 

"Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did." - Newt Gingrich

Perseverance is a word I throw around a lot. I believe strongly in it, if you keep going and keep trying and something, it will happen, maybe not the first, second, or even 100th time. But it will happen if you keep trying.  

 "Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work. I live by that. You grind hard so you can play hard. At the end of the day, you put all the work in, and eventually it'll pay off. It could be in a year, it could be in 30 years. Eventually, your hard work will pay off." - Kevin Hart


“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.” – Bill Cosby

You have to want what you want to get it. So much so that it should consume your fear of failure and drive you to the top. Again, don't worry about failure. 

 On Love

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” - Lucille Ball

Lucille Ball has got it spot on. You have to love yourself to get something done, you should adore yourself. Wake up and look in the mirror and say 'I f**king rock!! I'm going to smash it today'. If you can't do that, learn to work on it.

“I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you." - Roy Croft

They always say find someone who brings the best out in you. Be with someone who makes you a better version of yourself. 

These are just a few of my favourite quotes on motivation and inspiration which I hope will also inspire and motivate you this year. Remember, small steps every day and you will make it to the top of your mountain. 

On that note, have a happy and wholesome 2017 everyone! The future of Maison de Choup is growing in a very positive way. Thank you all for joining the journey.

Much love ❤️
