40 moving forward quotes (+ my 5 favorite tips to move forward)
I hope these quotes will be as helpful for you as they have been for me when I've been stuck or felt like giving up on my own dreams and goals. That's what you'll find in the first section of this post. In the second part I'll share with you my 5 favorite tips that I use to let go of the past and move forward in my own life.
Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energy moving forward together towards an answer.
Take that big leap forward without hesitation, without once looking back. Simply forget the past and forge toward the future. Do not tarry.
To go forward is to move toward perfection. March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life's path. You have to keep moving forward. Habit is what keeps you going. Each human being has exactly the same of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can't buy more hours.
Scientists can't invent new minutes. And you can't save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving.
24 quotes about moving on and forward thinking
No matter how much time you've wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.
This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus.
90 positive quotes and moving on quotes
From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action. Time to move forward. You can just decide to cross over and move on. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed. One powerful reason is simply that there are benefits and advantages of not letting go.
I know that this is what I get out of not letting go. I also know that is not worth it in the long run. Understanding that there are indeed benefits of not letting go but that they are just short-term upsides and that I will gain much more in the long run by letting go helps me to move forward instead of getting stuck. Spend minutes with a podcast, Youtube-video, book or website that gives you a shot of constructive optimism, enthusiasm and new energy.
Audio books by Brian Tracy and the podcast from Tim Ferriss have helped me with that many times over the years.
I have more recently also started to watch foodtraveler Mark Wiens for his enthusiasm and positive mindset and I like the upbeat and constructive energy of Youtuber Ali Abdaal. You do not have control of the past.
What CAN I focus my time and energy on to actually make positive progress or a change in my life? After you have found what you can do to move yourself forward instead of being stuck in worries or regrets ask yourself this:. This will help you to not get stuck in procrastination.
Find just one small 5-minute step you can take to start your journey towards something new and better. If that still lands you in inner resistance and procrastination then find a tiny 1 minute step and get that done. The important thing is to get started and to not lapse back into the past or get lost in daydreams about the future. After you have accomplished your first small or tiny step and begun moving forward on your journey then celebrate that win. And that will make it easier to keep taking small steps forward toward what you want and need in life.
