April Series: Motivational Quotes

I’ve been reading the book “Winning Every Day” written by legendary University of Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz. I read this book the first time in middle school after being encouraged to read it by my dad. He loved to read books written by motivational speakers, especially sports stories.

"Quitters never win, and winners never quit."

I’ve meditated on motivational quotes for years. Certain mantras or proverbs always brought me comfort and energized me to continue chasing my dreams. However, as I’ve continued to read and place the author‘s experiences in my own life, my opinions have changed on common phrases. I thought it’d be interesting to post a series of quotes in April that discusses a single motivational quote. I’ll present discussions on why a quote speaks to me and why that same quote gives me hesitation.

"Be so good they can't ignore you."

Our society has these sayings that they're said so often, I wonder how much thought goes into whether or not those sayings should be used. Perhaps, they're not all that they seem.

"Never give anything away for free."

"Wisdom begins with wonder."

I look forward to the discussion.
