10 Inspiring Quotes to Make Your Day

I love inspiring quotes. They are like vitamins for your attitude.

Everyday, I pause what I am doing and read several inspirational quotes and reflect on what they mean to me and how I can apply them to personal and professional life.  I do that to keep my attitude pointed in the right direction.  I do it to stay motivated to accomplish what needs to get done.  I do it to stay focused and remember what is most important.  I think for the past 10 years, I have been posting positive quotes on my facebook fan page (eaglepainter) and enjoy observing the responses and likes, knowing that people are embracing the inspiration as I do and have.  Some days we just need a little inspiration and inspirational quotes are a fantastic way to jump start your day and stay on task.

Now, I have my personal favorites, but I asked my fans on my facebook fan page what inspiring quotes make their day. I wasn’t able to list them all, but will use others in future blog posts, but here are just a few inspirational quotes that will make your day.

Enjoy these inspirational Quotes!
