Favourite Kick-Ass Motivational Quotes

Feeling in a slump? Can’t get out of your funk or just generally need a little boost in the morning to kick start the day?

It’s times like this we all need a bit of help. People talk about mantras or affirmations and you can see eyes begin to roll and thoughts of here we go, here come the positive pants. But I am here to help in saying that they really do help. They can provide inspiration, productivity and that much-needed attitude upgrade.

Still with me?

You see I decided this post would be about paying it forward. I had a moment the other day where I felt slightly fed-up and therefore frustrated as I don’t like to waste my time feeling anything other than happy. And in my morning Instagram scroll I came across a quote which within seconds changed my mindset, made me feel much happier and the ability to focus on the excitement of how my day was going to unfold. It quickly became my screensaver as a constant reminder…

Today, make yourself a priority

So I did.

And I decided that I would dedicate today’s post by sharing nine of my favourite quotes with you in case you ever need that quick boost and they may be able to help turn that frown upside down.
