Motivational Quote Monday

Sunday, March 16, 2014
I absolutely LOVE motivational quotes.
Throughout high school and college I would find fun quotes and post them in my bedroom, in my planner or even on a mirror to help encourage or motivate me. I continue to love using fun quotes even in my professional career. 

Even though I still personally enjoy posting them around for myself to see, I also enjoy finding fun quotes that I believe my students would understand and be motivated by. I have a large white board at the back of my classroom that often is left empty. It is old, not magnetic and NOTHING will stick to it (no tape is strong enough…Hah!) so I often find myself writing fun quotes for my students to read and reflect on.
Last weekend I stumbled upon the PERFECT quote for my classroom. My school is using the Leader in Me program and we are always talking about what characteristics and traits make up a leader. I think this quote will be a great reminder for my students. I can't wait to share it with my students this week. I can't wait to see what discussion arises from it as well!

I tried to figure out who wrote it but I had no luck. 
If you know what creative mind first said this, please let me know! =)
If you can use this poster in your room I'd love for you to grab it through the link below!

Do you have a favorite quote?
I'd love to hear it! 
I'll need a new one for my big white board soon! =)

  1. I have several quotes I love:

    "Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible" - Dalai Lama

    "The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you're willing to pay the price." - Vince Lombardi

    But these are my two favorites :) I love your poster! I can't wait to see more motivational quote Mondays!
