Zig Ziglar once said, “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing, that’s why we recommend it daily.” Hence, we need to constantly reignite our souls with inspiring words to fuel us with the mental vigour to soar in life. But why words? Words have tremendous power! And though, they may be short and easy to speak but trust me, their echoes are truly endless. More so, the power of words lies not in their number but in their depth. Little wonder Pythagoras said, “do not say a little in many words, but a great deal in few.” Hence, my passion for quotes and proverbs as they are short sentences from long experiences. Without a doubt, they have shaped lives and mine is no exception. Years ago, I would read and meditate on a few quotes every day and gradually, I did not only master them as a Public speaker but it eventually changed my life because words influence thoughts which in turn influence actions. Consequently, I have compiled some of my favourite quotes to inspire you throughout the year. Nevertheless, let me warn you, don’t just read these quotes alone because reading without reflecting is like eating without digesting. The mind is like a stomach as it is not how much you inject that counts, but how much it digests. So as you read 365 DAYS OF PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT, may the rest of your life be the best of your life.
