Monday Motivation (#2)


It’s the start of another week which means another installment of Monday Motivation. (If you missed the first Monday Motivation post, you can check it out here.) Today I’m going to share some favorite quotes from books I’ve read to help get your week off to a great start.

“I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying.” ~ Stephen King, The Shawshank Redemption / Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption

“Look on every exit as being an entrance somewhere else.” ~ Tom Stoppard, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead

“People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.” ~ Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

In summary:

  • you have choices in life – you can focus on the positive or the negative, but only one of those choices moves you forward.
  • things tend to happen for a reason, even though you may not be able to see what that is in the moment.
  • you’re capable of making your dreams come true but will probably have to put some work in to see them come to fruition. Do you have the dedication, patience, and guts to work toward your goals?

Do you have a favorite motivational quote from a book? I know there are so many other great ones out there, it’s hard to choose!
