I love a good motivational quote. Truly, I do. And I deeply appreciate those who share them multiple times a day. While — newsflash — it IS possible to do what you need to do in business without FEELING like it, being motivated is certainly better than NOT being motivated.
Still, rather than simply SHARING the motivational quote du jour… I want to urge you to DO the quote. BE the quote. LIVE the quote.
Don’t just consume it and pass it on…
Take this quote for example, from the late, great Zig Ziglar:

I see this quote and I think, “Who have I helped today?” I might also share it… but FIRST, I want to use these motivational quotes to CHALLENGE me… to challenge me to ACT.
Here are some additional motivational quotes that I’ve turned around and made into challenges.
Let’s live this out, shall we?
Because we’re the BEST at what we do… because we are women of high integrity… because this business for us is about — not ONLY income — but also impact and influence.
