30 Powerful Motivational Quotes To Prepare You For 2020

motivational quotes

I was having a conversation with a friend of mine last night.  

He has plans to immigrate to a different country.

My good friend said something to me that honestly struck me.

He said "Where I'm going, I have to have a completely different mindset from where I am right now. I cannot take my current thinking with me because if I do, I will fail for sure."

I truly admired that he understood the very fundamental principle that if you don't change the way you think and if you do not prepare yourself for the future you want, it will not happen!

 So my question to you today is,

Where do you want to be one year from today?

motivational quotes

Ask yourself this question seriously.

You might be in a place right now where you're constantly thinking: "I know I should change, I want to change, but I don't change!"

It can be extremely frustrating because year in, year out, you are hopeful that the new year will bring new fortunes, you do have goals and resolutions you have set for yourself but for some reason, maybe one or two of them, if any, truly come to fruition for you.

Perhaps you've noticed a pattern, which might be that you may have all these ambitions, goals, hopes and dreams but the daily behaviors and routines of your life do not allow you to achieve 85% of what you have projected for yourself.

But 2020 has to be different for you...

As we prepare for the new year, be very, very intentional about exactly how you want it to be.

The clichéd phrase where you cannot expect a different outcome when you keep doing the same things every time is absolutely true.

If you want to see real results in 2020, you will have to make the decision to think and execute differently this time than you ever really have, because it is very easy to fall back into the same autopilot routine you've been doing for the past 5 or even 10 years!

Questions To Ask Yourself For 2020

motivational quotes

I have some homework for you to do, hopefully before 2019 ends!

Grab a pen and paper, and write down these 3 important questions:

  • What Do I Want To Achieve In 2020?
  • Why Is It So Important For Me To Attain This Goal?
  • Who Do I Have To Become To Make This A Reality In My Life?

Be very focused and  deliberate with this assignment.

​This won't work if you do not give yourself the credit you deserve!

You might be really discouraged right now because it may be that not very much of what you intended to make happen in your life actually has, plus with the continued depressing news of a bad economy, another corruption scandal, bills to pay...

... but you have to believe in the fact that there is massive power in making bold decisions and driving massive momentum towards whatever intention you set for yourself!
