Life Coaching Quotes

1) “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” ―Neale Donald Walsch

A fulfilling life is often full of overcoming obstacles and feeling accomplished by completing challenging tasks. In order to see this growth, you must often step outside your comfort zone.

2) “If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.” –Fred DeVito

We tend to value something more when it was challenging to achieve it. If you did the same workout every day and it just got easier and easier each time until it felt like a walk in the park, it wouldn’t excite you. But if you gradually challenged yourself more with each workout, you’ll feel challenged, invigorated, and see growth over time.

3) “The distance between your dreams and reality is called action.” ―Unknown

Anyone can be a dreamer but few actually achieve their dreams. Why? They don’t take consistent action to get there. Oftentimes a life coach can help you bridge that gap and help lay out an actionable plan to reach your goal.

4) “You don’t have to be great to get started but you have to get started to be great.” ―Les Brown

The best way to reach your goal is to take imperfect action. The fear of not doing it the right way often gets in the way of doing anything at all. Instead of being paralyzed by fear, start now, start messy, and focus on improving as you practice. Remember, no one became an overnight success – they all had to start somewhere.

5) “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” ―C.S. Lewis

Many celebrities you know and love didn’t even get started in their careers until later in life. Or take Maye Musk who became a CoverGirl at age 69. You are never too old (or too young) to get started.

6) “You have exactly one life in which to do everything you’ll ever do. Act accordingly.” ―Colin Wright

We only have one life on this planet and we certainly don’t want to waste it. Envision what you want out of life, act with intention, and live out the life of your dreams.

7) “If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough.” ―Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

We are capable of so much more than we realize. When we dream small, we act small. When we dream big, we may not know how to get there but we’re given the space to figure it out. When you aim for a big goal, you still win even if you fall a little short. And good chance you still achieved more than if you had dreamt small.

8) “There are no failures – just your experiences and your reactions to them.” ―Tom Krouse

Failure is simply a step on the path toward success. Adopt a growth mindset and you’ll be able to see failures for what they really are.

9) “Our attitude toward life determines life’s attitude towards us.” ―Earl Nightingale

If we see everything as a hopeless struggle, it will be a hopeless struggle. If we see everything as an opportunity, we will see nothing but opportunities. Which do you choose?

10) “Overthinking – the art of creating problems that weren’t even there.” ―Unknown

How often have you thought about a situation and then continued ruminating on it until you’ve come up with 99 problems with that situation? And how many of those were problems that hadn’t actually occurred but instead possible scenarios that could maybe happen on an off chance? Yeah, this is where overthinking can get the best of us.

11) “Strength comes from struggle. When you learn to see your struggles as opportunities to become stronger, better, wiser, then your thinking shifts from ‘I can’t do this’ to ‘I must do this’.” ―Toni Sorensen

We are most effectively motivated intrinsically. Find that inner fire that fuels you and let it fight you out of struggle and persevere to something better.

12) “Demand more from yourself than anyone else could ever expect.” ―Tony Robbins

No one will ever want you to succeed more than you want it for yourself. Understand the “why” behind your desires and leverage that to push yourself further.

13) “Believe in your heart that you’re meant to live a life full of passion, purpose, magic and miracles.” ―Roy T. Bennett

Believing is half the battle. If you cannot believe you are worthy, it will never happen for you. Believe in yourself and see how life unfolds.

14) “Fear regret more than failure.” ―Taryn Rose

If you don’t try, you’ll never know what could have been. As they say, it’s better to have tried and failed than to have never tried at all.

15) “The people who succeed the most are the people who have failed the most, because they are the people who have tried the most.” ―Unknown

Failure is a necessary step to learning and growing. In order to be great at anything, failure is inevitably a part of your journey.

16) “Your past does not equal your future.” ―Tony Robbins

You are constantly writing your future and at any time, you can change the direction of your life. Use your past as a learning tool but do not let it dictate your future.

17) “Sometimes the biggest accomplishment in life is to find yourself.” ―Luisa Fernanda Cicero

Take the time to discover what lights you up, brings you joy, and what you’re passionate about. With this insight, you can create a life that is true to who you are and want to be.

18) “If I am not good to myself, how can I expect anyone else to be good to me?” ―Maya Angelou

You must love yourself first and foremost, and from there it will be easier to accept the good into your life.

19) “Get busy living or get busy dying.” ―Stephen King

You have one life, live it to the fullest.
