Today I am doing Day 3 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge. My favorite quote.
I really don’t have one single favorite quote. I come across great quotes all the time that speak to me at that specific moment. But, I would have to say that I have a few that I really think have shaped me. The first one has been repeated and reposted but I believe the original quote goes to Igor Sikorsky:
“According to the law of aerodynamics, the bumblebee is unable to fly. The size and shape of its body in relation to the total wingspan makes flight impossible. But the bumblebee, ignorant of these profound scientific truths, goes ahead and flies anyway; and even manages to make a little honey every day.”
I love this quote. I really try to focus on the fact that even though things have been “proven” impossible, there is always a change of not only succeeding, but making a little “honey” along the way. So no matter how many times I fail at something, nothing is impossible. One day, I will succeed!
The next quote really speaks to me whenever I go through a struggle or feel like nothing is going right. I am unable to find the original author of the quote, so if you know, please let me know and I will update this!
“An arrow can only be shot by being pulled backwards. So when you feel that life is dragging you back and pulling you down, you are about to be launched into something great. So hang on, and keep aiming.”
No matter what struggles you have going on in your life, keep your focus. I feel like it is so easy to get lost in the drama and struggles of everyday life. Remember that you are about to be shot forward. Keep aiming. This is so, so important. If you are focusing on your struggle and grief, that is where you are aiming. When the time finally comes to be shot forward, you will plunge further into your struggle. Keep your head up. Focus on the ultimate goal, whatever that is for you. When the time comes to be shot forward, you will be thrust toward your goal at a rate so fast, you wont be able to stop it!
The final quote I will leave you with is one that I have recently come across. It is by Zig Zigler:
“You don’t have to be great to start. You have just have to start to be great.”
This speaks to me right now. When I found it, it was like a bullet straight to my heart. I am starting my weight loss journey, and my network marketing business, and we are still fresh with our chiropractic office, and starting this blog. I have so many new beginnings right now it is hard to keep the confidence that I will succeed. But this quote reminds me, I can only be great if I allow myself to start. I know there will be little bumps along the way, but it is only a failure if I quit.
I am sure there are others out there that will inspire me, but I know God will put them in front of me when I need them the most. If you have some that inspire you, please feel free to share. I love a good quote! God Bless!
