In the next couple of weeks I will be launching a podcast where I will interview people who love what they do for a living. To get you ready for this podcast, I thought I would bring you some quotes to keep you motivated when it comes to pursuing a career that you love:

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

― Confucius

“A good manager is a man who isn’t worried about his own career but rather the careers of those who work for him.”

― H. S. M. Burns

“It’s not what you achieve, it’s what you overcome. That’s what defines your career.”

― Carlton Fisk

“Think big and don’t listen to people who tell you it can’t be done. Life’s too short to think small.”

― Tim Ferriss

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

― Michael Jordan

“Work to become, not to acquire.”

― Elbert Hubbard

“The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else. Job security is gone. The driving force of a career must come from the individual. Remember: Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career!”

― Earl Nightingale

“Think not of yourself as the architect of your career but as the sculptor. Expect to have to do a lot of hard hammering and chiseling and scraping and polishing.”

― BC Forbes

“I’ve learned that making a ‘living’ is not the same thing as ‘making a life’.”

― Maya Angelou

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”

― Thomas A. Edison
