I really enjoy reading quotes but there are some quotes that really get you moving. The quote below may seem wrong but just think about it.... when you are trying to decide if you should start a new business, go with the new idea in your head, making that cold call you've been dreading, or ask the girl out you've been eyeing, just do it. the time is now because tomorrow might not be here.

"You're going to die" - Me, Bob Dylan, and many others as it isn't unique but gets the message across

(Even MJ talks about something similar in his book)

From the book King, Warrior, Magician, Lover from Robert Moore & Douglas Gillette (which is an excellent book btw.)

The Warrior traditions all affirm that, in addition to training, what enables a Warrior to reach clarity of thought is living with the awareness of his own imminent death. The warrior knows the shortness of life and how fragile it is. A man under the guidance of the Warrior knows how few his days are. Rather than depressing him, this awareness leads him to an outpouring of life-force and to an intense experience of his life that is unknown to others. Every act counts. Each deed is done as if it were the last. “There is no time for anything but meaningful acts if we live with death as our eternal companion.” There is no time for hesitation. This sense of the imminence of death energizes the man accessing the Warrior energy to take decisive action. This means that he engages life. He never withdraws from it. He doesn’t ‘think too much,’ because thinking too much can lead to doubt, and doubt to hesitation, and hesitation to inaction. Inaction can lead to losing the battle.

This part get's me fired up all the time.
What a great quote! Thank you for sharing it.

“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.

And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”

― Albert Camus

Try for just a single day, a whole day when you refuse to acknowledge fear of failure, fear of making yourself look like an idiot, fear of losing your lover, fear of anything and of any kind. Fear will creep back, but laugh at it and tell it to take a hike. Go on. I dare you. If you can do it, this will transform your life. You will instantly perceive (among many other things) just how much money there is in the world, and how pitifully easy it is to obtain it. Money that already has your name on it.

- Felix Dennis

"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now."

:)

@Aimee, This reminds me that even if you didn't start (building your business/career/etc.), you can still start building it today. Now. And don't waste this time you have.

Great. :)
