23 Motivational Quotes for Moving Forward

It’s very easy to let your past haunt you. But letting your past get to you even in current times is an utter waste of time, emotions and energy.

There are many ways to move forward, one of it is to change your mindset with the use of quotes. For that reason, we compiled quotes so that you would move forward with your life and not think about your past and failures you had.

Here are the quotes for moving forward:

  1. Ditch the guilt. Guilt is one emotion that never leads to good things. Remove the guilt and you can move on.
  2. At this moment in time, you are everything you need to be everything and everything you want to be.
  3. You need to know on a good day how to look after yourself and your success on a bad day. How will you ensure you take action on this advice?
  4. Learn the science of who you are. This is powerful knowledge that will empower you to move forward no matter what you face or want to achieve.
  5. Remember that everything changes. The hibernating tree looks dead but will return in the spring rejuvenated. This is essential knowledge for good times and bad. In bad times, it reminds you to keep going, and in good times, it reminds you to be grateful and keep looking to learn and grow. (Just like that tree!)
  6. What’s stopping you? Is it a perception or a fact? Either way, you can do something about it, even if it is just to change the thoughts attached to the thing that is stopping you. Nothing can have power over you unless you let it.
  7. Steer clear of negative people, news, and views. It’s all too easy to get dragged into other people’s negativity. Understand how negative news, views, and people impact you. If you can’t find ways to keep that negativity away, then step away metaphorically and physically. Your success will appreciate it.
  8. The quality of your thoughts and feelings impacts your actions and results. Everything you can see started as a thought. So, when you need encouragement, ask yourself, “are my thoughts enabling me or disabling me?” Are my thoughts “moving me forward or holding me back?”
  9. Sad isn’t bad. We get all the emotions, not just the good ones. So, when you feel sad, guilty, lonely, upset, frustrated, angry, mad, don’t push those emotions away. Take yourself through this process:

For what reason am I feeling this?

What does it tell me about my life right now?

What does it tell me about my actions and results right now?

What would I like to feel instead?

What would this do for me?

How will I get myself there?

Take yourself through the process and own all emotions.

  1. The one thing you can control is what you think.
  2. On this planet, your job is not to fit in. Your job is to shine. Stand out. Speak up, and be the unique individual you are meant to be. It’s the quickest way to lasting success.
  3. Words can only have power if you let them. Good words, bad words. Happy words. Successful words. Which words are you giving the most power to?
  4. While many fear failure, it is a gift in disguise. It tells you what not to repeat, it tells you what didn’t work, and it moves you forward to what you want to achieve. Don’t berate and hate your failures. They are driving you forward to your success.
  5. When someone tells you that one book changed their life, that doesn’t mean it will work for you. If it doesn’t work for you, you did not fail, the book failed. The book was the wrong book for you. Don’t stop reading. Just look for the right fit for you.
  6. Your success, happiness, and progress in life are not dependent on luck. It is dependent on self-belief. Check your levels.
  7. It is not beneficial to apologize for what you need in life. It takes away its value to you. If you need it, own it!
  8. If you are needing some, don’t look for it on a bad day. Look for it on a good day. Music, aromas, people, environments, photos, even fairy lights, and dancing can be the key to kick you back into action and results.
  9. Choosing to stop thinking about something because it upsets you, infuriates you, or angers you doesn’t mean your brain is not trying to process how you feel. You need to make space to process those negatives so that you are back in the flow and doing what you excel at.
  10. Being reactive instead of proactive stops you from moving forward. What needs to change?
  11. Think back to a time that you overcome adversity, achieved something big, or kept going when you really didn’t want to. What skills do you notice? What were you telling yourself? What did you learn about who you are? How will you use that knowledge moving forward?
  12. “Don’t,” “Won’t,” and “Can’t” all have power. One holds power over you, one is neutral, and one takes ownership. Which one are you using? Can you tell the difference?
  13. Whoever said words had no power had never met a powerful coach! Words can be the building blocks to overcoming anything and getting what you want in life. So, what words are you allowing in your head? How do you word your goals and ambitions?
  14. Feel the fear and do it anyway. Is that a good idea with a starving tiger in the same room? Will you stick around and have a chat about how you wish to overcome the fear of the tiger or will you take action? Move so far away from your fear that it doesn’t exist? And get an expert to help you deal with the tiger? Analogies like this help you see how fear is allowed to stick around and how to get rid of it permanently.
