Motivational Quotes for the Workplace

Employee Recognition Ideas

There are many ways to provide incentive and inspire workers, and if you are an employee, keeping motivational quotes posted around your work area may help get you through those particularly stressful days. In tough economic times, when the unemployment rate is through roof, most of us are very thankful to even have a job, but if you find yourself struggling to stay motivated or feel discouraged at work, try posting some of these motivational quotes for the workplace around the office:

Kahlil Gibran: “Work is love made visible. And if you can’t work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of the people who work with joy.”

Johnny Carson: “Never continue in a job you don’t enjoy. If you’re happy in what you’re doing, you’ll like yourself, you’ll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined.”

Bobby Unser: “Desire! That’s the one secret of every man’s career. Not education. Not being born with hidden talents. Desire.”

Mark Twain: “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

Hamilton Holt: “Nothing worthwhile comes easily. Work, continuous work and hard work, is the only way to accomplish results that last.”

Indira Gamdji: “There are two kinds of people, those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there.”

Dale Carnegie: “Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all you heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours.”

Harding Lawrence: “Don’t set compensation as a goal. Find work you like, and the compensation will follow.”
