Personal Development Resources At I just love motivational and inspirational quotes. They are the wisdom passed down from countless individuals from the ancient past all the way to the present. They help keep us on track with our own life goals as well as provide a guide to how we should be conducting ourselves as human beings.

Like many motivational speakers and personal development authors, I use such motivational quotes throughout my live presentations and books. They help teach important success principles.

I’ve compiled 200 of the most profound motivational quotes I’ve come across in this ebook.

Some are by famous people and many are by those you probably never heard of but their quotations are equally striking.

Even reading one or two of these on a daily basis will help put you on course in your day to day life. If you do presentations at work or school, referring to one or two of these quotes will help bring your presentation to a higher level. Audiences will always appreciate the added wisdom.

I’ve even added a few of my own motivational quotes at the end of this book and I hope they will inspire you in some way. Visit my website (posted at the top of the page) for many more personal development resources such as articles, videos and more books.

Thank you for downloading this ebook and feel free to share it with others.
