Here are 8 Lewis Howes quotes to help inspire your own inner greatness:
“Greatness is my passion, but vision is my obsession.” – Lewis Howes
As Lewis found out after his career-ending injury, without a clear vision for your future it’s easy to feel lost and unmotivated. After months of searching he began to craft a new vision for his future. The most successful people in the world and top athletes all share one thing in common — a crystal clear vision. They know what they want to achieve, how they will achieve it and align their lives with that vision.
Have you sat down and spent time thinking about the future you want to create? You need to create a vision that will make you jump out of bed every morning. Start by clarifying what you want and who you want to become in your future.
“Embrace the challenge and move toward this adversity, making it part of your success story.” – Lewis Howes
In today’s world, a lot of people avoid the hard stuff. But if you avoid adversity any time it is presented in your life you will never grow. Successful people don’t avoid adversity, they confront it and find solutions. You will never fulfill your vision if you live in your comfort zone 100% of the time. Growth only happens outside your comfort zone. Start by doing something today that scares you daily until eventually you become fearless.
“Belief in yourself has to be a weapon in your arsenal whose power you respect and revere.” – Lewis Howes
As you begin to conquer more adversity in life you will not only create your vision sooner but you will create more belief in yourself. Once you believe that you can accomplish anything your mindset will help you become unstoppable.
“I have learned that champions aren’t just born; champions can be made when they embrace and commit to life-changing positive habits.” – Lewis Howes
The most successful business leaders, CEO’s, and athletes weren’t born any differently than you. They simply have a better set of habits that they practice on a regular basis. Look at your own habits and find out how you can improve the little ones to make some big changes in your life. These could include consistent exercise, meditation, practicing gratitude, and constantly learning. Focus your life on good habits and you will be able to accomplish any goal you set.
“The world makes room for passionate people.” – Lewis Howes
In any industry, there is always room for those who are passionate about their craft. If your goal is in a crowded space don’t let that stop you, strive to become better. Think about Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. Tony Robbins and Jack Canfield. The best always find a way to rise to the top.
“You become what you envision yourself being.” – Lewis Howes
Your mind is more powerful than you realize. Every thought, daydream, and conversation you have will shape your future. Focus on the positive and more of it will come into your life. If you are always thinking about achieving your goals, talking about your goals with positive people, and visualizing them, they will eventually come to life. On the contrary, if you are negative, pessimistic, and practice negative self-talk you will create more of that in your life.
Become your own hero in life by always envisioning yourself achieving your goals.
“You can go as slow as you need to go, but you cannot stop. You can never give up or drop out of giving your best in life.” — Lewis Howes
Winners never quit. Everyone who has ever achieved greatness has probably felt like quitting. But if you quit, you will never get closer to turning your vision into a reality. Strive to make a little progress each day to accomplish one or several of your goals. Momentum will build from the little progress until you finally have that breakthrough moment.
“People matter. And you can’t achieve anything great on your own. Letting people know how much they matter and how much you care about them is equally important. — Lewis Howes
Successful people have known this for years, if you want to achieve greatness you need to surround yourself with a positive support system. Eliminate people who aren’t helping you or quickly phase them out. When you find the good ones, don’t be afraid to tell those people how much you appreciate them. Not only will it feel good to express gratitude you will open doors and opportunities you never thought possible.
