  • Motivation is the desire or willingness of someone to do something.
  • If your motivated in your life, you will have a better chance to succeed.
  • Greatness doesn't come sitting still.
  • You have to move forward even if your taking baby steps.
  • The greatest motivation comes from yourself. As you get older you have to motivate yourself. You can do this by reinforcing positive quotes to yourself.
  • The road to success is paid by your intentions, so make your intentions noble.
  • You don't have to be great to start, you have to start to be great.
  • If it's important to you, you will find a way. If not you will find an excuse.
