Here To Inspire Your Way To A Productive Week
Sometimes you need a kick in the pants and a friendly reminder that what want to achieve really is possible. So, here it is:
Success is your only option.
I wholeheartedly believe that. If you really put your mind to it and decide it’s possible, that success will ultimately come. It takes action, persistence, and consistency, but fundamentally, all you need is to decide that you are going to achieve anything and everything you want to do.
In this series weekly series, I have compiled 47 quotes from businessmen and women, public speakers, online entrepreneurs, philanthropists, artists, television show-runners and more. These people have achieved so much success, because not only have they decided that they are going to be successful, but they have also allowed themselves to fail. That’s one of the most important things to keep in mind. Failure is a part of achieving growth, because no one is just going to hand you the life you want. You must work for it, learn the lessons from any missteps, apply them and find any other way you can to reach your goal.
What I want you to do is find someone new from this series and learn more about them. I’ve even given you a short bio and some fun facts to start things off.
Expand your awareness and maybe even find yourself a new role model. Many of the people on this list are incredibly influential to me, and have completely changed my view of money, business, and success.
“Action is the cure to fear.”
What I Like About This Quote: It’s a friendly reminder that one of the top killers of any business, online or otherwise, is analysis paralysis. If you want to do something, but don’t know how to do it, start anyway.
Yes, there is that fear that you encounter when you approach something that you don’t know how to do, but that fear is just your ego trying to keep you in your comfort zone. Your ego wants to keep you safe from the unknown, but by doing so, your ego keeps you stuck in the same place you are. You can’t grow inside your comfort zone. The only place you grow is by moving outside of it.
That means taking action, and especially taking action the second you are inspired to do it.
You can do all the research you want, but if you never take that first step, you’ll never get anywhere with your goals. You may be afraid if you haven’t started, but you’ll notice, every single time, that the fear goes away when you start.
Take that first step. Then take the next and the next and the next until you’ve reached your goal. And after that? Set new goals. The cycle continues.

This quote definitely defines everything I try to teach my girls. Thinking it’ll end up on their wall soon. And thanks for the book links. Think I just expanded my reading list.
I heard it when she was a guest on Rachel Ngom’s She’s Making An Impact podcast and immediately wrote it down. SO important to keep in mind, especially for me!
This is really a great friendly reminder. I could really use this in the office 🙂
When I heard Zenkina say this, I was like…write.this.down.now. So it’s in a note on my phone, and probably going to end up somewhere a lot more prominent at my desk at work!
Action is the cure to =fear is probably one of my favourite quotes. It is something we all need posted above our desks
Exactly! It’s SO important!
What a great idea to help motivate someone into action. I love the quote from Kathrin Zenkina. So much better to do something than nothing at all – even if it is little chunks.
Exactly! Even a little action is still moving you forward. No action keeps you where you are. No progress. I’d take the former every time!
I love this quote! I also believe just starting with anything at all that you do know is better than just waiting for it to come your way!
Exactly! You progress and ultimately learn, but only through action!
I love the quote. Fear can hold you back but the only way to stare it down is to do something.
Exactly! You’ll never know if you’re going to be successful at something if you don’t try!
We entrepreneurs are a rare type. We deserve these quotes!
We do! I’m happy to provide you with my favorites! More to come next week!
this quote is so motivating! I am so glad I stumbled onto your blog! Excited for more!
Happy to help! More to come on the motivation side next week. I’m so happy you’re here!
Such powerful words. I’m a firm believer that you have to go for it if you want to overcome you fear of failure.
Exactly! It’s so critical! Action will beat inaction every single day!
