Job Search can be stressful and take much longer that you expect. It’s not easy to go through the pressure at times. Success comes to those who keep going, positively, enthusiastically and with a plan.
Here are some inspiring sayings that might motivate you or help carry on when the going gets tough:
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit –
Rest, if you must, but don’t quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out—
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
by Ralph Marston
Out there beyond what you know you can do, a pleasant surprise awaits. Out beyond your comfort zone, there is a precious treasure waiting to be mined.
Almost every skill you now possess was once beyond your abilities. Every place where you now feel comfortable and at home, was once unknown to you.
There are more things that you can do, higher levels that you can reach. Though they seem a little intimidating from where you are now, they can soon be comfortable and familiar.
Push yourself a little bit beyond what you know you can do. And you’ll discover something truly empowering.
You’ll discover that you can indeed step forward into unknown territory, and you’ll uncover valuable treasures you never knew you were missing. Your levels of confidence and competence will grow beyond anything you could have previously imagined.
Push yourself a little bit beyond where you are now. And you’ll be pleasantly surprised with where it takes you.
In the end, its extra effort that separates a winner from second place. But winning takes a lot more that that, too. It starts with complete command of the fundamentals. Then it takes desire, determination, discipline, and self-sacrifice. And finally, it takes a great deal of love, fairness and respect for your fellow man. Put all these together, and even if you don’t win, how can you lose?
– Jesse Owens
“What we ponder and what we think about sets the course of our life. Any day we wish; we can discipline ourselves to change it all. Any day we wish, we can open the book that will open our mind to new knowledge. Any day we wish, we can start a new activity. Any day we wish, we can start the process of life change. We can do it immediately, or next week, or next month, or next year.
“We can also do nothing. We can pretend rather than perform. And if the idea of having to change ourselves makes us uncomfortable, we can remain as we are. We can choose rest over labor, entertainment over education, delusion over truth, and doubt over confidence. The choices are ours to make. But while we curse the effect, we continue to nourish the cause. As Shakespeare uniquely observed,”The fault is not in the stars, but in ourselves.”
We created our circumstances by our past choices. We have both the ability and the responsibility to make better choices beginning today.”
– Jim Rohn
Obstacles cannot crush me, every obstacle yields to stern resolve. He who is fixed to a star does not change his mind.
– Leonardo da Vinci
