16 Motivational and Inspiring Quotes from Actors and Influential People

 

 

Sometimes when I find that my motivation is dwindling I read a few quotes from actors or other inspirational people who have found success and this helps replenish my motivation.   When I am talking about success I'm not referring to expensive cars and big mansions.  No, I am talking about doing what you love to do and being surrounded by the people you most love.

 

When you set out to do something as risky as acting, you bump into more rejection and let downs than anywhere else.  That's why I collected a few quotes that remind me that I am pursuing this dream for a reason.  It's ok to face rejection but it's not ok to give up because of it.  When I read these quotes I feel a fire light up inside of me.

 

No matter how many hurdles we have to jump over we have to remember why we are doing it and most importantly we have to remember we aren't the only ones facing a tough journey.

 

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and cuddle up and ponder over these motivational quotes. 

 

Here are 16 of my favorite motivational and inspiring quotes that I have collected from around the internet.   I hope they motivate you to keep (or start) pursuing your dream.

 

Thank you so much for reading and have a great day!
