Hello friends! Here I present you with over 100 motivational quotes for life. Sometimes it helps to read some encouraging words to change our mindset when we are feeling down. Also, it provides motivation to move our dreams into action.

All the problems of our lives exist only in our minds. There is nothing out there causing us suffering, it’s only our perception about a particular situation. We can say that the glass is half full or half empty. We can view it as a challenge or as an opportunity, it all depends in our minds.

Life is so complex! No two lives are a like. That’s why different quotes will resonate with different people depending where they are in their life journey. Please note that I did my best to make sure the quotes are accurate, however, I was not there with them so I can’t guarantee that this is what each person said. 😉

As I was reading different quotes, they all sounded so good, but I did not want just one huge list. That’s why they are divided into different categories. Not to say that theses are the only categories in life, but they are some of the common grounds I saw on many of these motivational quotes for life.

Make sure to read all of them to gain some insights. You can also use the menu below if you want to read a particular section first. Enjoy!
