Monday Morning Motivation: Quotes from Books

Welcome to Monday Morning Motivation!

This is a feature where I will be sharing quotes from books that have motivated and encouraged me in one way or another.

I hope you will find some of these quotes inspiring and uplifting.

As the year comes to a close, I’ll be sharing quotes from a book I am currently reading and hope to finish in a day or two. However, so far it’s already given me a lot to think about and another perspective on how to be better and grow to be the woman that I want to see myself become. I hope some of these quotes will motivate you to be better and help kick-start your goals in the coming year.

“Goals are good for setting a direction, but systems are best for making progress.” – James Clear in ‘Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones’.

“When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that last blow that did it—but all that had gone before.” – James Clear in ‘Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones’.

“All big things come from small beginnings. The seed of every habit is a single, tiny decision. But as that decision is repeated, a habit sprouts and grows stronger. Roots entrench themselves and branches grow. The task of breaking a bad habit is like uprooting a powerful oak within us. And the task of building a good habit is like cultivating a delicate flower one day at a time.” – James Clear in ‘Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones’.

“Be the designer of your world and not merely the consumer of it.” – James Clear in ‘Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones’.

“Success is the product of daily habits—not once-in-a-lifetime transformations.” – James Clear in ‘Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones’.

“True long-term thinking is goal-less thinking. It’s not about any single accomplishment. It is about the cycle of endless refinement and continuous improvement. Ultimately, it is your commitment to the process that will determine your progress.” – James Clear in ‘Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones’.
