Monday Morning Motivation: Quotes From Books

Welcome to Monday Morning Motivation!

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

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

This week, I’ll be sharing quotes from a book I am currently reading titled ‘Necessary Endings’ by Dr. Henry Cloud. Although I am not done reading this book, I couldn’t help but share the thought provoking lessons I have already learnt so far. I would be sharing some quotes from this book with you and I hope it adds some more wisdom and understanding to your heart and mind. I also highly recommend.

I wish you a brilliant week ahead!

“Your business and your life will change when you really, really get it that some people are not going to change, no matter what you do, and that still others have a vested interest in being destructive.”― Henry Cloud, Necessary Endings: The Employees, Businesses, and Relationships That All of Us Have to Give Up in Order to Move Forward.

“Without the ability to end things, people stay stuck, never becoming who they are meant to be, never accomplishing all that their talents and abilities should afford them.” ― Henry Cloud, Necessary Endings: The Employees, Businesses, and Relationships That All of Us Have to Give Up in Order to Move Forward.

“Failing well means ending something that is not working and choosing to do something else better.” ― Henry Cloud, Necessary Endings: The Employees, Businesses, and Relationships That All of Us Have to Give Up in Order to Move Forward.

“When truth presents itself, the wise person sees the light, takes it in, and makes adjustments.” ― Henry Cloud, Necessary Endings: The Employees, Businesses, and Relationships That All of Us Have to Give Up in Order to Move Forward.

“Loyalty is important, one of the most important character traits we can have. But loyal love does not mean infinite and/or misplaced responsibility for another’s life, nor does it mean that one forever puts up with mistreatment out of inappropriate loyalty.” ― Henry Cloud, Necessary Endings: The Employees, Businesses, and Relationships That All of Us Have to Give Up in Order to Move Forward.

“There is a difference between helping someone who is disabled, incapable, or otherwise infirm versus helping someone who is resisting growing up and taking care of what every adult (or child, for that matter) has to be responsible for: herself or himself. When you find yourself in any way paying for someone else’s responsibilities, not only are you stuck with a delayed ending, but you are probably harming that person.” ― Henry Cloud, Necessary Endings: The Employees, Businesses, and Relationships That All of Us Have to Give Up in Order to Move Forward.

“You cannot fix people who will not take feedback, because from their perspective, they do not have a problem.” ― Henry Cloud, Necessary Endings: The Employees, Businesses, and Relationships That All of Us Have to Give Up in Order to Move Forward.

“Getting to the next level always requires ending something, leaving it behind, and moving on. Growth itself demands that we move on. Without the ability to end things, people stay stuck, never becoming who they are meant to be, never accomplishing all that their talents and abilities should afford them.” ― Henry Cloud, Necessary Endings: The Employees, Businesses, and Relationships That All of Us Have to Give Up in Order to Move Forward.

“When a spouse says to the alcoholic, “you need to go to AA,” that is obviously not true. The addict feels no need to do that at all, and isn’t. But when she says, “I am moving out and will be open to getting back together when you are getting treatment for your addiction,” then all of a sudden the addict feels “I need to get some help or I am going to lose my marriage.” The need has been transferred. It is the same with any kind of problematic behavior of a person who is not taking feedback and ownership. The need and drive to do something about it must be transferred to that person, and that is done through having consequences that finally make him feel the pain instead of others. When he feels the pain, he will feel the need to change…A plan that has hope is one that limits your exposure to the foolish person’s issues and forces him to feel the consequences of his performance so that he might have hope of waking up and changing.” ― Henry Cloud, Necessary Endings: The Employees, Businesses, and Relationships That All of Us Have to Give Up in Order to Move Forward.
