Recharge Your Life Through A Quote

I tend to stay away from fiction novels. I can’t visualize what’s happening. I don’t have a very active imagination.

Recently someone recommended Coelho’s The Alchemist. I haven’t been able to put it down. This novel is a masterpiece. Every single page has at least one quote that resonates with me.

How is it that Coelho can create something, where everything he writes is a quote? I don’t think anyone is quoting us anytime soon.

Quotes can be incredibly powerful for our lives. They are able to inspire, change, and challenge us.

Quotes can inspire us.

They’re able to make us garner all our energy toward a singular goal. They’re able to make us fight for something we believe in. 

“There is only one way to learn. It’s through action. Everything you need to know you have learned through your journey.”

Only through diligent consistent action can we learn and improve. Let us strive to be our best selves.

Within us lies unimaginable strength and will, if we only unlocked it. Let us have a positive unshakeable mindset, as we chase to be the strongest version of ourselves.

Quotes can change us.

They are able to alter our mindsets and allow us to view life in a different perspective.

“At a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what’s happening to us, and ours lives become controlled by fate. That’s the world’s greatest lie”

We’re told that fate and luck governs our lives. We’re told we can’t help what’s happening to us and ‘everything happens for a reason.’

However, most often than not, we can change. We can alter our lives and regain our personal freedom. We possess the ability to decide where our passion lies and which road to walk.

Quotes can challenge us.

They are able to test our strength and willpower. They are able push us to our limits. All the personal growth we’ve experienced as a human being has been a result of a real challenge.

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”

Before, 2HelpfulGuys, we’ve failed at everything. We started organizations that tanked and projects that flopped. But that fear of failure never stopped us.

Each time we failed, we’d try something else. Everyone possesses the power of perseverance – the power to push forward to the very end despite failure.

Failure is necessary.

But the fear of failure prevents us from ever starting. We foresee the future and all the horrible things before we even take our first step. We get scared and run away.

In achieving our dreams, we must overcome the fear of failure. We possess the power to look beyond failure and persevere.

It is these moments that our concentration was galvanized, our best efforts called upon, and our strength, will and courage tested.

Quotes have the ability to impact our lives. We read quotes every single day for an inspirational recharge or a motivational boost. We can place ourselves in the author’s mindset and experience their feelings.

When we allow the quote to set within us, it changes the way we perceive life. We’re more open, engaged, present and fulfilled.

I wonder if our work has impacted anyone out there yet. I doubt it. But maybe someday, someone will read something we write, and it will resonate with them as much as The Alchemist has resonated with me.

Reading this novel has made me want to delve into other fictitious works. So if anyone has any recommendations, feel free to leave a comment.

As always, my beautiful readers,

Be bold, be free and love on.

  1. With 8,988 followers, I am sure your posts have an impact! I know you made me think to pull “The Alchemist” back off my bookshelf and read it again, because when I read it the first time, all those years ago, I missed a lot of the quotes you are referring to 🙂 Thanks for the reminder!

    1. Thank you so much for the push! I hope we can continue to impact people!

      That’s awesome! I’m almost done the book! Blown away with how good it is! I’ve continue to find quotes on every page that stand out!

  2. The Buddha quote is one I have been living by for almost two years now and it has served me well. I personally used to think it was all tosh but I have to admit since taking this viewpoint (and some others) I have quietened and focussed my mind so much more than ever before.
    Good post.

  3. The truth is that we have become so busy that we rarely sit and think about life as we see it. We quote dead philosophers but leave no quotes for others to remember us by. Nice one

    1. Very true! We hope to be quote one day. That’s one of the dreams we hold quite close. Also, I believe that as long as we remember the quotes of those old philosophers, they are never truly dead.

      1. Remember the quotes for sure. And, again quoting from “The Art of Pilgrimage,” “Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old; seek what they sought.” Matsuo Basho

      2. I love that one too! Always aim to seek purpose and happiness. Use their methods, build and improve on them and leave behind a method that someone can replicate to achieve success in their own lives.

  4. “The Art of Pilgrimage: The Seeker’s Guide to Making Travel Sacred” is a wonderful (non-fiction) book. Beyond “quotes on every page,” Phil Cousineau provides a framework–and insight–for understanding the journey of our failures as well as our successes.

  5. I read “The Alchemist” around the same time that I read “The Little Prince” – both deeply inspiring stories. I was actually pleasantly surprised by “The Little Prince” because I thought it was meant to be a children’s book

    1. The Little Prince looks very interesting! I think I might pick it up. You’re not the first person to recommend it to me. It must be a sign! Thank you for your recommendation! 🙂
