Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
You have a very powerful mind that can make anything happen as long as you keep yourself centered.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.
People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.
Norman Vincent Peale
People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.
Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.
Stephen R. Covey
Strong lives are motivated by dynamic purposes.
In my experience, there is only one motivation, and that is desire. No reasons or principle contain it or stand against it.
People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.
