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 we begin this new year, I’ll be sharing quotes from a book I read sometime last year which inspired my latest podcast episode (do check it out). This book motivated me to be more, dream big and refuse to be a mediocre in anything I set my heart to achieve. I hope some of these quotes will motivate you to be better and help kick-start your goals this new year.
“Choose to be forward focused, not past possessed. Learn to profit from the past while investing in the future.” – John Mason in ‘An Enemy Called Average’.
“Rising above mediocrity never just happens; it’s always a result of faith combined with works. Faith without works is like gold within the earth. It is of no value until it is mined. A person who has faith but no actions is like a bird that has wings but no feet. The Bible says, “Faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead” (James 2:17 NKJV). Biblical principles multiplied by nothing equal nothing. Let’s be people who put our faith into action. One individual with faith and action constitutes a majority.”- John Mason in ‘An Enemy Called Average’.
“It is always better to fail in doing something than to excel at doing nothing.”- John Mason in ‘An Enemy Called Average’.
“Action attacks fear; inaction reinforces it.”- John Mason in ‘An Enemy Called Average’.
“Never respond out of fear, and never fear to respond.”- John Mason in ‘An Enemy Called Average’.
