2014 Coming to a Close – 2015 Just Before Us, Bright and Shiny

Tomorrow is a New Year that brings amazing things: opportunity for a fresh start, renewed hope, possibilities, and even new beginnings.

Mark Twain said, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream, Discover.”

Make 2015 a year of action rather than procrastination.

To start the New Year, I tried to find quotes I haven’t shared before, or at least ones I haven’t shared recently. Below are 10 I find inspirational. Hope you do to.

“Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.”
~ Lyndon B. Johnson

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” ~ Wayne Gretzky

"For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday."  ~ Dale Carnegie

“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”
~ Will Rogers

“You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.”
~ Christopher Columbus

“I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.”
~ Stephen Covey

“Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” ~ Warren Buffet

“If a man empties his purse into his head no one can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

“You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” ~ John C. Maxwell


To add to these motivational quotes for the New Year, I have a powerful goal setting and achieving ebook for you. It's free and you can (and should) share it. It’s absolutely worth reading. Here's the link:

Stop on by tomorrow also. They’ll be another gift for you!

Speaking of quotations, one of my fave tips is make a list of your OWN quotations. From any of your books including poetry--even how-to books. I have a couple of different lists. If you'd like to use my list a template (it shows how to make it easy for editors and bloggers to just copy ans paste by submitting exactly as it should appear), just e-mail me at HoJoNews @ AOL dot Com. Tell me what it is you want. In fact, you can copy and paste this message to make it crystal clear. (-:

Great quotes! I will be printing this off and taping it near my desk. Thanks, Karen!

Carolyn, I have multiple lists of quotes. I love quotes. That's a great idea to create your own quotes from books, and this gives the author some promotion too. Win-win!

Karen Cioffi said...

Kathleen, so glad you like the quotes. There was another I really loved, I think it's: "Anxiety is the interest on a bill you may not owe." Don't remember the author though.

I love the one about someone sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree years ago. It's not just about our own lives either, but about the good of the future for all of us. Thanks for the quotes.

Karen Cioffi said...

That's so true, Melinda. There's no telling how our actions today can help someone tomorrow. Great point.
