You may feel a little tired and demotivated at times, which is okay, but don’t be down for too long. Here are some great quotes from 5 amazing women to use as a pick-me-up.

Angela Bassett

Don't settle for average. Bring your best to the moment. Then, whether it fails or succeeds, at least you know you gave all you had. We need to live the best that's in us

Sometimes we become unproductive out of fear of failing. Failing isn’t the end of the world. The best thing about it is that it proves that you’ve tried and you can always go back and give things another go.

Maya Angelou

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style.”

You have to try your best and strive to achieve growth and greatness. Doing anything just for the sake of doing it isn’t fulfilling in the long run. It’s always best to do things because you’d like to be better. If you make that your mission, you’ll be unstoppable.


Everything is worth it. The hard work, the times when you're tired, the times where you're a bit sad, in the end, it's all worth it because it really makes me happy. There's nothing better than loving what you do.”

Doing what you love can be really rewarding, which is why we’re all about finding your passion. This doesn’t mean that you won’t have to put in long hours, or feel discouraged sometimes. Loving what you do just makes the tough times worth the effort in the end.


I truly believe that if you put your goals in writing, speak them out loud, and work for them, they will happen.”

Nothing beats the feeling of achieving a goal, which is why it’s important to write your goals down and tick them off as you reach them. This will definitely help you become more productive as each goal you tick off the list, motivates you to go for the next.

Diana Ross

You can't just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream. You've got to get out there and make it happen for yourself.”- Diana Ross

You won’t be given things on a silver platter. Believing in your dreams means going out there and making them a reality. Don’t put your dreams and future in anyone else’s hands; rather have a vision and work towards it.

Being productive every day can be a challenge (especially if you’re working from home), but if you find ways to stay motivated and keep your eye on the goal – you’re likely to get more done with the time you have. Have any quotes that inspire you? Share them with us on social media!
