Inspirational-quotePost written by Peter G. James Sinclair & his LinkedIn friends.

Quotes accompany me on a daily basis. Quite often short and to the point. Memorable. In this post over 60 of my LinkedIn friends share the quotes that have had the most impact on their lives along with quotes that they themselves have created. I trust you will enjoy them as much as I have.

Peter G. J. Sinclair CEO of Outasight Enterprises Pty Ltd – Those who TRY are not mediocre. They are champions. They will win. They will overcome. They will one day get there – if they don’t do one thing. And that one thing is: QUIT!

Sean Robi Life, Personal Development Coach and Motivational, Inspirational Speaker – I say Actions alone are not enough, many people make actions but with no progress or no success at all, well let me tell you, your actions should be accompanied by burning desire, what else? You need with your burning desire a supreme enthusiasm, what else? Still your actions are considered very weak without creativity and intelligence, learn to think creatively and act intelligently, what else? Your actions still are baby actions and they need to grow, you need to feed them, you can not grow your actions without risk taking, no risk taking your actions are coward actions, coward actions are going to die soon. See the baby eagle when he falls from his nest, he left alone but he has to live, he has to learn how to fly no matter what, he has to take risk otherwise he is going to die or to be killed.  What else? You need to heat up your actions with more knowledge, what else? Your actions now are young and they need protection from storms, your actions can be protected only by strong beliefs, strong beliefs push your actions forward no matter what; you can get strong beliefs only when you control your thoughts, this is the only way, and here you cannot control your thoughts if you are fearful.

Céline Clémence SIKA Founder & Coordinator AFFAMIR Cameroon | Author | International Student Resort and Hotel Management, Selkirk College – Thanks to all of you for these wonderful, empowering and inspiring quotes! I really love them. Every quote here had played or is going to play a role in my life or the one of my beloved ones. Words are powerful. Words are transformational if they are well said, and at the right moment. Or when read at the right moment.

Céline Clémence SIKA Founder & Coordinator AFFAMIR Cameroon | Author | International Student Resort and Hotel Management, Selkirk College – Hi Oliver, And thanks for your comments. I have to use that special one -Run your own race. Follow your own lane. Be yourself. You are unique, not a pale copy of others. You are UNIQUE- almost EVERY DAY with my two children to help them accept and embrace the person they are -while they work to become a better them-, believe in themselves, in their uniqueness, in their power and right to live a life they desire (and not what others want) and deserve. It is not easy to be different in our today’s societies where being different is almost a crime. Pressure, bullying, discrimination, and even violence because one is different and refuse to follow, to conform, is the norm today. But I think, as parents, we have the obligation to tell our children it is OK to be different. It is even beautiful to be different. Look at the rainbow that is beautiful because of its different and many colors. We must tell ten it is very ok to follow our own lane. And we must also help them to do so.
