14 Quotes to Keep Any Work at Home Mom Inspired

by in Inspiration

Staying inspired and motivated is extra hard when you're working from home. A lot of WAHMs decorate their office space and desk area with inspirational quotes, posters, and dream or vision boards to help keep things top of mind and stay in the right mindset. Here are 14 quotes that I enjoyed and that might inspire you today…

  • “Wherever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision.” -Peter F. Drucker
  • “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” -Thomas Edison
  • “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” – Colin Powell
  • “In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln
  • “In doing something, do it with love or never do it at all.” – Mahatma Gandhi
  • “Work is life, you know, and without it, there's nothing but fear and insecurity.” – John Lennon
  • “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.” – Aristotle
  • “The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.” -Vince Lombardi
  • “Keep away from small people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too can become great.” -Mark Twain
  • “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” – Thomas Edison
  • “If your ship doesn't come in, swim out to it.” – Jonathan Winters
  • “I know the price of success: dedication, hard work and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen.” -Frank Lloyd Wright
  • “Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.” -Napoleon Hill
  • “The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else. Job security is gone. The driving force of a career must come from the individual. Remember: Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career!” – Earl Nightingale
