Problem is an inevitable thing that people have to face during their entire lives. When problem happens, we will try to find the solutions. Simultaneously, motivation also plays an essential role in solving problems. Motivation is like a catalyzer which inspires you to face and solve those problems. Motivation can be provided by many ways such as family, friend and environment. Moreover, “Quote” or “Quotation” is also an effective way in motivating. Here are the 10 quotes which are considered as top 10 motivational quotes:
1. “I’m thankful for my struggle because without it I wouldn’t have stumbled across my strength”—Alex Elle
We were born, we live in this world, and we face problem. We should not blame or complain why we meet all those problems. Instead, we should be thankful for those struggles. Without them, we would not try. Without trying, we would not know how to deal any problems, and we would not know our strengths, too. Those struggles occur to help you recognize your strengths.
2. “I may not be the strongest. I may not be the fastest, but I work the hardest.”—unknown
People want to be the strongest and want to be the fastest. But you don’t have to. This quote motivates you to work the hardest in any situations. Sometimes, you are weak. Sometimes, you are slow. But that’s not the matter. What’s important is trying your best. Pushing yourself to work the hardest will lead you to success.
3. “The way to get started is to quit talking and start doing”—Walt Disney
Some people like to talk but don’t take any action. That’s a problem. When they have creative ideas, they just keep silence and do not do anything. So how can you get any result? You will be able to get your business started or your problem solved if you start to take action instead of talking. Don’t just say without acting; start doing!
4. “I do it because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn’t”—unknown
Some people may look down you. Don’t blame them. They may be the reason that pushes you to do something. They may say you could not do it, so try to do that. Show them that you can. Give yourself hope and tell yourself “I CAN”. One day, you will be able to do that thing successfully. Don’t be hopeless when people you cannot do something. Show the world that you can if you want to.
5. “If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or objects”—Albert Einstein
Some people seem to be really worried what others think about them. They worry too much that others may talk negatively behind their backs. It is like you tie your life to other people. It is not worth. You are making yourself unhappy. If you want to live happily, think about your goal and try to reach it. Once you succeed, that’s your happiness.
6. “I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that’s why I succeed”—Michael Jordan
That’s absolutely true. We cannot avoid any failures in our lives. We aren’t god; we cannot always get what we want. Sometimes, we may fail. But don’t give up. Remember that failure is a key to reach success. Failure teaches you how to go through hardship. Be hopeful and keep trying. One day, you will reach your goal.
7. “Success doesn’t just come and find you. You have to go out and get it.” –Kushandwizdom
Everybody always says that they want to be successful. But they do nothing. So do you think success will come and find you? Absolutely no! Success doesn’t come to you if you don’t find it by yourself. This quote inspires you to get up and try your best to reach success. There is no one can be successful without trying hard.
8. “Everything will be okay in the end. If it isn’t okay, it isn’t the end”—John Lennon
It is a very motivational quote, isn’t it? This quote motivates you to keep trying hard. Sometimes, you meet obstacles, and you want to give up. It is not unusual; many people intend to give up when they meet problems. However, you shouldn’t think like that. Now you’re in trouble. But it isn’t the end yet. Once everything isn’t alright, it is not the end. Keep going on until everything is okay.
9. “If you are born poor, it is not your fault. But if you die poor, it is your fault.”—Bill Gates
You may be born poor, but it isn’t your mistake. Don’t be upset, don’t be disappointed and try to work hard. Just because you are born poor, doesn’t mean you will die poor. Don’t let your past control your future. Work hard and earn more money. If you let yourself die poor, it is your mistake. So, during your life, keep trying and don’t surrender.
10. “A negative mind will never give you a positive result.”—Unknown
Some people like to think negatively. They seem to be very pessimistic about their future or other situations. But remember this quote. Your negative mind will not lead you to get a positive result. Don’t be a pessimist, but be an optimist. Your positive result starts from your positive mind.

10 Best Mental Focus Quotes
Today we all worry about mental focus and remaining mentally fit. We are concerned with preventing illnesses such as Alzheimer’s or dementia. But we also require concentration to work or to do any type of artistic activit. This is of such a big concern that artists and writers also expound on the importance of mental agility.
So just for fun lets look at 10 quotes that may help us concentrate a bit more on memory retention and mental focus.
1. An Indian Cinematographer Named Arjun Rampal
This exemplary Indian writer seems to have also had those moments of lack of concentration or the power to memorize lines easily. One of my favorite quotes from this author is:
Being healthy improves my ability to remain focused, my concentration and my determination to develop into a better person and to achieve my life needs and goals. – Arjun Rampal
2. Another Writer; Jarod Kintz
I adore this quote by Jarod Kintz, author of Love Quotes for the Ages, Specifically age 18 to 81.
It’s the Distraction Juice (not from concentrate) that works. It offers the euphoria of that feeling of Love, only it’s made of many different ingredients. – Jarod Kintz
I think this is a quote that sums up mental focus as well as love. It wraps it all up into one neat package.
3. Muriel Spark
As a writer I can certainly empathize with Muriel, when she comments on a need for concentration. And as having been a cat owner, I know that this quote about concentration and mental awareness is certainly true. This is the solution, we just have to look at that cat.
If you want to solve a problem, especially when it comes to writing, you need a cat. When you are working alone with the cat in the room… the cat will sit beside you, with a serenity that goes way beyond our understanding. It’s this serenity that will pass onto you so you can compose yourself and give over to the concentration of your mind on the task at hand. – Muriel Spark
4. Toba Beta
Now here is a great one from the author of the book, Master of Stupidity.
When you focus your mind, others become attracted to you. – Toba Beta
Wouldn’t that be interesting? To attract others to us, just because we are able to focus. I guess in a way he is right. I have a truly empathetic friend who focuses his full attention on you whenever you have something to share or need a listening ear. Some say he is very quiet, yet still, he has a lot of friends.
5. Winifred Gallagher
In a quote from her book Rapt, Castellanos is known to say that concentration requires a certain amount of time spent on a task, when the time elapses it’s time to change tasks. However, when concentrating for that specific time your bound to run into challenges.
If you really want to get creative and concentrate, says Castellanos, you want to spend about 90 minutes on it. Then change activities, and be careful with those interruptions, as they often take about 20 minutes to recover from. – Winifred Gallager
6. The Runner: Haruki Murakami
Here is another attention grabbing quote about mental focus. At least this is one of my favorites. This might be because I truly believe that without concentration we are almost nowhere. It’s as if we sleep while awake. This is certainly a contribution by Haruki Murakami in his book The Elephant Vanishes.
Focus is the ability to concentrate all your limited talent on whatever’s critical at the moment. – Haruki Murakami
7. Arnold Palmer
I wouldn’t have thought it but I guess Golf is a game that also requires a great deal of concentration. Or at least Arnold Palmer, famous American Golfer believes concentration is something to consider. He says:
Mental focus comes from a need, a hunger but also a confidence in who you are. – Arnold Palmer
In truth, I think he has something here. After all, if you didn’t really want the objective, you wouldn’t worry so much about concentration.
8. Ralph Alfred Habas
Ralph says it best with the following quote:
You have to be INTERESTED. INTEREST is the key to making it happen. When you are truly interested in what you do, then you will be able to focus. – Ralph Alfred Habas
It is so true. We are all much better at concentrating on areas where we hold an interest, a like or a want to learn.
9. Norman Doidge
The author of The Brain’s Way of Healing suggests that mental focus activities offer a way of warding off dementia. These activities include playing board games, reading, dancing (yep dancing) and music. Every time I get a little tired of putting in so much effort I think of this Norman Doidge quote.
Not all activities require the same brain activity. – Norman Doidge
Those that involve real mental focus like studying a musical instrument, playing board games, reading, and dancing – are associated with a lower risk for dementia. However, an activity like dancy which requires new moves, is also physically and mentally challenging and requires a great deal of mental activity.
This famous Gnostic , one of those strong silent types, says it best in just a few powerful words:
Turn your actions into focused practices – and you will evolve into a better person. – Belsebuub
What more can I add to that quote. Nothing. It’s perfect. Concentrated practices, that’s what we all need to focus on.
