Great books, blogs and quotes are three of my sources of inspiration when I feel stuck or need encouragement to do something I’m scared of. Here are some of my favourite quotes on life change, finding courage and having faith that things will work out – like when left my job to pursue my interests, sold everything I owned to travel, and continuing to travel past the one year anniversary of being away from work.
You can benefit from the wisdom behind the quotes daily, by posting them on:
- Your refrigerator and bathroom mirror, so you see it every morning
- Your living room table, or front of your journal so you see them before you sleep
- Keep them in your wallet to have with you during the day.
