We all need a little inspiration in our life, especially to start the week off, after a long day or a painful week. Here are eight inspiring quotes that will increase your determination and help you to be a better leader, whether that is of a team or of your life.
Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone
“You never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone.” — Roy T. Bennett
A definite way to progress and grow his business is to get out of your comfort zone by seizing opportunities and facing the obstacles that limit you. Yes, it may be scary but nothing ever worth having is done easy.
The Mind Is Key to Your Success
“Don’t let mental blocks control you. Set yourself free. Confront your fear and turn the mental blocks into building blocks.”
There are two types, a fixed mindset versus a growth mindset. If you have a fixed mindset, you believe that you are incapable of change. A growth mindset is a belief that you can change by investing your time and energy. Always work to be in a growth mindset – you will get more done and be happier along the way.
Get Back on Your Feet

Any leader will tell you that they have felt defeated at one time or another. The key is to get back up and continue on; this is a lesson to learn from great leaders in history: success is not guaranteed every time but there ae lessons to be learned for the future.
Face Your Fear

It’s known that fear paralyzes people, and it can prevent you from moving forward. Since fear is part of life, you must learn to identify your fears so that you can master them and use them correctly. Focus on the outcome to keep the drive alive.

Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune or temporary defeat.
Any great leader will see the opportunity in any situation that is perceived as unfavorable by most. Train your brain to see the good or growth opportunity in any case. Good leaders see opportunities and go after them.
