Use these Simon Sinek quotes to get inspired and find your WHY.
“I find, when you’re an optimist, life has a funny way of looking after you.” – Simon Sinek
Optimism is the only attitude you should have in life. Life is already hard enough if you have a pessimistic or negative attitude it will be unnecessarily harder. Choose to be an optimist and find the silver lining in any situation.
Yes, it won’t be easy at first if you’ve been thinking the opposite way your whole life but it’s crucial to attaining the highest level of success.
“Dream big. Start small. But most of all, start.” – Simon Sinek Quotes
Just start, take action! You just have to start. Once you do that you will see what you need and learn from your own mistakes.
Once you get momentum you won’t be able to stop and everything will seem easy. Even when things get tough, nothing will stop you (and that optimist attitude).
“If you want to feel happy, do something for yourself. If you want to feel fulfilled, do something for someone else.” – Simon Sinek
You need a combination of both in your life. You can’t give all of your energy to everyone else. But you shouldn’t make your life all about you either.
Find a balance by putting yourself first to create energy within you. This will lead to positive relationships and the ability to help more people. Always remember, no matter how bad it is, that someone is praying to be where you are right now.
“If no one ever broke the rules, then we’d never advance.” – Simon Sinek
Arnold Schwarzenegger talks about breaking the rules in his epic 5 Rules of Success speech as well. You have to learn how to break some rules or no one would accomplish anything.
“What good is an idea if it remains an idea? Try. Experiment. Iterate. Fail. Try again. Change the world.” – Simon Sinek Quotes
Failure is the path to success. No one got to high levels of success without failing. In fact, they failed the most and the quickest.
Don’t fear failure, seek it out. Fail BIG! The more you fail the more you can learn. Keep going until you make your ideas a reality.
“Life is beautiful not because of the things we see or do. Life is beautiful because of the people we meet.” – Simon Sinek
Relationships are one of the main keys to living a successful life. You can only make it so far on your own. You need to cultivate, maintain, and grow relationships. Find mentors, like-minded people and treat others well so you can create a beautiful life.
Vision is the ability to talk about the future with such clarity it is as if we are talking about the past.” – Simon Sinek Quotes
If you aren’t 100% clear on your future goals you are setting yourself for disappointment. Clarify your vision, goals, and dreams so you can figure out how to make them happen sooner. Learn to communicate your vision with as many people as possible.
Use these Simon Sinek quotes to get inspired and create a beautiful life. Remember, once you find your WHY then you will find out how to make it happen.
