    Inspirational quotes can be a great antidote to that little voice of self doubt. Here's some of my favourite ones that helped me through times when I doubted myself. Hope you enjoy them :) :) :)

    "Get excited and enthusiastic about your own dream. This excitement is like a forest fire - you can smell it, taste it, and see it from a mile away."
    Denis Waitley

    "Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm."
    Sir Winston Churchill

    "I don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but how high he bounces when he hits bottom."
    General George S. Patton

    "Start by doing what's necessary, then what's possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible."
    Francis of Assisi

    "Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all."
    Dale Carnegie

    "Determination gives you the resolve to keep going in spite of the roadblocks that lay before you."
    Denis Waitley

    "What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it."
    Alexander Graham Bell


    "Don't let go of your dreams. If you have determination and belief in your dreams, you will succeed in spite of your desire to let go."
    Catherine Pulsifer

    "So long as there is breath in me, that long I will persist. For now I know one of the greatest principles on success; if I persist long enough I will win."
    Og Mandino

    "Within each of us is a hidden store of determination. Determination to keep us in the race when all seems lost."
    Roger Dawson

    "Our greatest battles are that with our own minds."
    Jameson Frank

    "If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity, it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life, and when it comes, hold your head high. Look it squarely in the eye, and say, "I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me."
    Ann Landers


    "The Difficult is that which can be done immediately; the Impossible that which takes a little longer."

    "It is a good rule to face difficulties at the time they arise and not allow them to increase unacknowledged."
    Edward W. Ziegler

    "In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity."
    Albert Einstein

    "I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much."
    Mother Teresa

    "Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them... they are liable to spring upon you; but if you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight."
    Orison Swett Marden

    "Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven't half the strength you think they have."
    Norman Vincent Peale

    "There is a real magic in enthusiasm. It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment.Those who are fired with an enthusiastic idea and who allow it to take hold and dominate their thoughts find that new worlds open for them. As long as enthusiasm holds out, so will new opportunities."
    Norman Vincent Peale

    "Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by
    the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.
    So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour.
    Catch the trade winds in your sails.
    Explore. Dream. Discover."
    Mark Twain

    and want and that they can grow up in peace."

    A few of my favorites

    "Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious.....And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." -Walt Disney

    "It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt

    "Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back-- Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now." - W.H. Murray (Scottish Himalayan Expedition)

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." - Marianne Williamson

    "There is one great spectacle, grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is a spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul."

    In this world
    Hate never yet dispelled hate.
    Only love dispels hate.
    This is the law,
    Ancient and inexhaustible.

    It is better to conquer yourself
    Than to win a thousand battles.
    Then the victory is yours.
    It cannot be taken from you,
    Not by angels or by demons,
    Heaven or hell.

    We are what we think.
    All that we are arises with our thoughts.
    With our thoughts we make the world.

    Better than a thousand hollow words
    Is one word that brings peace.
    Better than a thousand hollow verses
    Is one verse that brings peace.

    All quotes from Siddhartha Gautama

    RIP

    Love and light:)
