8 positive self-development quotes that will get your mind ticking with inspiration


Quotes are more than a jumble of letters, words have the power to make millions of people think with just a drop of ink.

With the fast-paced lives that most people lead and the demands of it, simple things such as making your happiness and self-development a priority instead become a back burner. A project for later.

This is where something as minuscule in the grand scheme of things as the quote comes in handy. 

Whether it's reading a quick affirmation to yourself in the morning or doing a deep dive of quotes until you find the perfect one to inspire and motivate can be like doing a shot of espresso. 

They also help to shift and grow your perspective on the world, what others experience and how to fulfil yourself.

Here are 8 quotes that will either give you a good old kick up the butt if you need it or broaden your perspective some more:
