Life is an ongoing journey and an ever-evolving process. Though we learn from the past, we need to keep putting one foot in front of the other to grow.


Don't let the thought of the bleak economic future ahead, nor unpleasant memories, break you. Keep your head above the water by learning to tread it and stop yourself from drowning.

But every once in a while, we stumble across something that pushes us to keep swimming. Here is a list of inspirational quotes to help all of us grow in these uncertain times.

1. Keep Learning

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

– Mahatma Gandhi

Why not take this time to learn a new skill or start on a hobby you did not have time for before. It will take your mind off your worries. Remember the saying, “ Every cloud has a silver lining.”

2. Create Opportunities

“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.”

– Milton Berle


We need to take the initiative. Don't sit back and wait for an opportunity to knock. Put yourself out there. Take a risk, and you may be pleasantly surprised by the outcome

3. Do Not Fear Failure

“I haven’t failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

– Thomas Edison

Don’t let failure hold you back. After all, failure is a stepping stone to success. Every failure holds a lesson to help you grow and get better.


4. Be Courageous

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”

– Anais Nin

The world is there for the taking; you need to have courage. It is especially true today with the world at our fingertips. Now is the time to let go of inhibitions and reach for dreams. As Oprah Winfrey reminds us, “The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire.”


5. Take A Chance

"You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

– Wayne Gretzky

Take the chance/risk and see where it takes you. Hesitating and second-guessing yourself weakens your resolve and stops you from reaching your full potential. Fight your inner saboteur and take that shot.

I am taking Robert Frosts' advice in "The road not taken" and choosing the path less traveled. Let's see what a difference it makes. I welcome you to share my journey.
