Quotes For Being Great Starting Now

Most of us get flat out lazy at times and we just can’t seem to get the right leverage to kick ourselves back into gear.

That’s why it’s really essential for everyone to pick some quotes for being great so they can help us better tap into our inborn power.

These are my own original quotes for being great and they can help each of us explode out of laziness and back into a life of achieving.

We must all remember that sustaining an active edge while keeping laziness at bay is our own outgoing responsibility.

Because if we do nothing about it the initial comforts that accompany laziness will quickly seduce us and before long we’ll find ourselves drifting far away from living as the most complete version of ourselves.

Pick your favorite quotes for being great from the list and check out the further instructions below.
