Everybody needs some pep talk once in a while.

With all the distractions of a digital age, it is so easy to lose focus from the things that really matter. That’s why it is important to remind yourself of doing what you want. Every day.

This way you will stay focused. You will get more stuff done. You will get productive.

But to get to this mental state, some of my business mentors suggest practising positive affirmations to make sure you get into your “beast” mode every morning.

So I got this habit of putting quotes into a notepad of my phone. The ones that work for me.

Now, I usually start my day by checking the quotes to get into the right state for what I want to achieve per day. Although it is not easy and sometimes you might get carried away with minor yet urgent matters, a quote day keeps procrastination away.

So here are some of mines that I get inspired from, I think you might find them useful too.
