Inspirational Quotes For The New Year
Here is a quote from Louise Hay to give you inspiration for the New Year! I don’t know why it is so hard for many of us to accept that we are worthy of great things. Reminding ourselves that we deserve good things and are worthy of the very best makes a great daily affirmation.
“I am willing to release the need to be unworthy. I am worthy of the very best in life, and I now lovingly allow myself to accept it”
― Louise L. Hay
Here are a few more motivational and inspirational quotes that I think go well with it:
“I have noticed that the Universe loves Gratitude. The more Grateful you are, the more goodies you get”
― Louise L. Hay
“If you can dream it, you can achieve it.”
“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”

“Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it.”
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
You can’t learn to stand up if you aren’t wiling to fall down. So don’t be afraid of your failings. They show you are making effort. Learn from each effort and do better next time. Set your goals higher and higher as you progress and in no time, you’ll be running. This can apply to learning new things or doing better at the things you are already trying to accomplish.

“A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That’s why they don’t get what they want.”
A year from now you will wish you had started today.” -Karen Lamb

Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.
– Earl Nightingale
“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”

My Favorite Quotes That Provides Motivation To Try Again
Sometimes you lack motivation to try because you have already tried and failed. When you give something your all, failure is hard to accept. Trying again can seem like too much to ask. It can seem pointless and hopeless. Then, if you are lucky, some inspiration will hit you and you will try again and this time when you succeed, the victory will be so sweet!
My grandmother always use to tell me, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again.” That seemed like such simple good advice when it came to trying my shoe. It still seems like good advice even if it is more hard to take on the more complex issues of life. Is that relationship worth saving? Well, here is a motivational quote from C.S. Lewis that may provide you with the inspiration to try again at whatever you want to change the ending for.
“You can’t go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and change the ending.”
And one that goes with it quite nicely-
“Every day is an opportunity for a fresh start.” -unknown
And one more!
“Every day may not be good but there is good in every day.”
