Well look at that, we’re five days into 2015 and some of us may have already fallen off the New Years resolution wagon. Not to wory, but let’s take a step back. Instead of characterizing it as resolution, let’s take them as long and short term goals one small bite at a time with the help of motivational quotes.
Most of us working up the ladder of success wish we had people like Mellody Hobson, Bernard Arnault, the late Leo Burnett, Anna Wintour etc, to motivate us or if we are lucky enough be our mentors. Though we all are not afforded that luxury, we’ve brought you the next best thing, usable motivating quotes.
We’ve curated a list of quotes from people that we admire, look up to and have attained the level of success some of us in the next generation hope to reach soon. As you begin 2015 with your goals (resolution) ranging from to either get a pay raise, switch careers, get that startup idea going or make the jump from junior exec to the corner office, pin these quotes or place them on your vision board and let that guide your 2015 professional development.
