Keeping a list of motivational quotes can be vital to filling up a fuel tank with encouragement. A life encouraged walks boldly into purpose despite the circumstances or the storms. But the circumstances and the storms are constantly at work to drain the encouragement and stall the purpose.
Growing up a life in courage (one that is encouraged and determined) requires replenishing that fuel tank – and the more circumstances and storms that come around, the more fuel needed to keep the momentum moving forward.
10 Motivational Quotes to Fill the Encouragement Tank
Never give up. Never give in. Never stop trying. Never sell out. And if you find yourself succumbing to one of the above for a brief moment, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, whisper a prayer, and start where you left off. But never, ever, ever give up.” – Richelle E. Goodrich
Keep going. Sometimes the only way through the storm is to refuse to stop. Sometimes the going will be a small step. Sometimes the going will be great leaps. The key is to keep going.
Kites rise against the wind, not with it.” – Winston Churchill
It takes the pushing force of the wind to get the kite to fly. Instead of seeing the pushing force as an obstacle, find a way to put it to work so that you begin to fly.
Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts.” – Albert Einstein
Dreams can provide the fuel that grows hope. Hope can conquer things that others dared to think impossible.
Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.” – Charles Swindoll
I have two choices – let the circumstances and storms dictate my direction OR choose to step out in the actions that will grow me into a better place. There are always two choices and the one I choose will make all the difference.
If it does not challenge you then it does not change you.” – Fred Devito
Challenges come in all shapes and sizes – and my challenge may not be your challenge. The important thing is that I never settle because when I settle I quit growing and when I quit growing I begin to die.
I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” – Edward Everett Hale

It is not the will to win that matters. Everyone has that. It is the will to prepare to win that matters.” – Paul “Bear” Bryant
Plan to win. Invest in the plan. Take action to see the plan through. The time leading up to the game has as much to do with the win as the time on the field. I need to practice my wins if I want to accomplish my wins.
Win if you can. Lose if you must. But never quit.” – Cameron Trammell

You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.” – Wayne Gretzky

Encouragement starts in the mind. Feed the mind words of hope and inspiration. Let those words begin to settle into your heart. It is the heart that grows up determination and consistency that leads to action. Pursue your dreams. Take the action that will bring you to your heart’s desire.
It begins with the mind – so feed the mind with motivational quotes to ensure that encouragement powers your actions.
