Inspiring Career Quotes to Keep You Motivated

Posted on Monday, August 2, 2021 by The Career GuideNo comments

Some days it’s hard to feel motivated. The grey skies are out and can you really handle another commute? Sometimes all you need is a little pick-me-up. At our Love Success London recruitment agency, we’ve cherry picked a selection of our favourite career quotes to inspire and energise you—whether it’s to continue in your current job, or to find something new.

  1. “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” — Confucius

    A wise old chap, Confucius nailed this simple truth—it’s a  classic where career quotes are concerned. But it’s so true! If you can find a job you love doing, it really won’t feel like work. It can be hard not to become a wage-slave, but the job market is currently ripe for reskilling, so take the plunge and consider a career change.

  2.  “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” — Abraham Lincoln

    All too easily we can become passengers in our own careers when we should be in the driving seat. Make sure you have a career plan and take the steps necessary to carry it out. If it’s not happening where you are right now, bite the bullet and make the move.

  3. “Desire! That’s the one secret of every man’s career. Not education. Not being born with hidden talents. Desire.” — Johnny Carson

    You get to decide how your career is shaped, and the biggest driver is your desire and enthusiasm. We love this quote because it’s a refreshing break from the belief that you need to be the candidate with the best achievements and accolades to succeed. Sometimes your enthusiasm is enough.

  4. “It’s not the days in your life, but the life in your days that counts.” — Brian White

    How inspiring is this? In office support jobs in London, you can often end up feeling like you’re on the treadmill and perhaps not contributing to the greater good. But within each day there are so many opportunities to live life. You serve others with what you do and how you do it, and that’s valuable.

  5. “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” — Albert Einstein

    Another wise chap coming into the fore here, Einstein has it spot on. You’re not going to be an expert at something the first time you try. The only way you can advance your career and improve your skills is to push yourself outside of your comfort zone. Yes, there will be mistakes, but you’ll learn from them. And it’s better than standing still.

  6. “You can’t build a reputation on what you’re going to do.” — Confucius

    Yes, it’s him again, but he’s a man of sage advice… Think about it. How often do you hear people complaining about how their career is not going anywhere? How often is that you? And how often is it paired with an idea of what you’ll do “tomorrow”? Well, tomorrow won’t happen the way you want it to if you don’t make some changes today.
