Top 30 Motivational Quotes

By Tim Lochhead

Our last blog looked at some key questions to help elicit change motivation.

Here are the first 10 of my Top 30 list of inspirational quotes that we can keep in mind to help as well. (Yes, I have even more and you never know which one will speak to someone, so spread the word and ‘share’ the love!)

I hope you can find one or two favourites and keep them at heart!
