I do. It’s this one:
For me, this quotation can stop me procrastinating and motivate me to Just. Get. Started. I remind myself of it whenever I’m faced with an overwhelming task. Getting started is by far the hardest part, but once I’ve taken that first step it doesn’t seem so daunting.
No matter how big the task seems, no matter how insurmountable it appears, we have to make a start and continue from there. Writing a book, losing weight, gaining a qualification, breaking a habit, getting fit - most things in life are accomplished in small stages, not in huge giant steps. Any task, broken down into small pieces, seems much easier. Without the first step, the journey will never happen. Somebody who dreams big but never acts will never make their dream come true.
Other quotations that I like include:
"Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die." - Carrie Fisher
"If you want the rainbow you have to put up with the rain." - Dolly Parton
"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek." - Joseph Campbell
What about you? Do you have a favourite quotation? Any that resonate strongly?
