A collection of go-getter quotes to inspire and motivate you to take action and achieve your dreams! 

Most of us are guilty of procrastination. We all have goals, we all want to change our lives and make our dreams a reality. 

Yet somehow, there are times when we still find it too difficult to take action and follow through on our goals. 

I was also guilty of this. And if I’m being honest, sometimes I still do. 

I have always wanted to start a blog but instead of actually going through with it, I stopped myself a lot of times. 

I knew it was what I wanted but I just was too scared that it would fail. 

Being afraid of failure is one of the reasons why most of us are holding back. 

We are afraid that we are not good enough to make something successful. We are afraid that all our hard work would all just go to waste if we fail. 

We are afraid to take the risk, to step out of our comfort zone, put ourselves out there and go after our dreams – thinking that we will never make it. 

But the thing is, we will never know unless we try. 

We will always feel stuck if we are too afraid to take that step and step out of our comfort zone. 

Yes, there’s always a chance that we will fail. But I want you to know this, failure is not a bad thing.

With failures, comes growth.

How to stop procrastinating and start being a go-getter

One way of fighting procrastination is to learn to embrace failures and uncertainties

You have to stop thinking that failing is bad because it’s not. Failing is normal. 

With failure comes, learning, growth, and a chance to be better. 

Another way is to fight the feeling of overwhelm. When I was just starting my blog, I’ve learned that there was so much work to be done. 

So many things that I needed to learn. I didn’t know where to start. I was feeling so overwhelmed that it paralyzed me. 

One thing that really helped me fight this, is by starting small. Remind yourself that you don’t have to do everything at once. 

Make a to-do list and just focus all your energy on the first task. Break down a large task into many smaller tasks. 

It’s time to stop making excuses and finally take the first step in changing your life.

And now, if ready to finally make that change, reinvent yourself and go after what you want, here’s a list of motivational quotes to help you fight procrastination and inspire you to take action.
