Yes, I’ll admit it. I’m one of those people. One of those people who smiles when they see inspirational messages in poster form in the home decor section of stores. One of those people who Likes motivational pictures posted up on Facebook. Heck, I’ve even had one such quote at the bottom of this blog since I started it in 2011, back when I was still stumbling around trying to figure this full-time RVing thing out and unsure how it was all going to end.
Not everyone enjoys motivational quotes, but I can say with certainty that they’ve helped me through the rougher patches on the road to my dreams. So today I’m going to share ten of my favorites with you, because one never knows what might move a person to bigger, better things.

To be able to spend your life in your own way.
– Christopher Morley
You see things and say, ‘Why?,’
But I dream things and say, ‘Why not?’

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot;
But make it hot by striking.
– William B. Sprague
That some achieve great success,
Is proof to all that others can achieve it as well.
– Abraham Lincoln
In the confrontation between the stream and the rock,
The stream always wins –
Not through strength, but through persistence.
There are two primary choices in life:
To accept conditions as they exist,
Or accept the responsibility for changing them.
– Denis Waitley
So go ahead and make mistakes.
Make all you can.
Because that’s where you will find success.
On the far side of failure.

Don’t be afraid your life will end;
Be afraid that it will never begin.

Do not go where the path may lead,
Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling,
But in rising every time we fall.

Okay so that was eleven instead of ten, you got a bonus one because it was very hard to narrow them down. Have a fantastic weekend everyone, and keep plugging away at your dreams!
