For some of us, our careers are very important to us. It may have taken a lot of time and effort with education, or perhaps learning on the job. You may be passionate about what you do and enjoy your work, but your career doesn’t always remain the same and sometimes you want to go for bigger and better jobs and climb the career ladder. However, we can all feel a crisis in confidence, especially when it comes to applying for jobs, in the interview, and also when starting your new job role. So here are eight motivational quotes to help you achieve your career goals.

“Be a bush if you can’t be a tree. If you can’t be a highway, just be a trail. If you can’t be a sun, be a star. For it isn’t by size that you win or fail. Be the best of whatever you are.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
This is such an important quote to remind yourself of when things feel tough in your career or when going to different job roles. Sometimes it isn’t about the size, but more about the quality which you implement into your job role. It is always worth it to work towards being who you are and focusing on what you can achieve.
“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” – Walt Disney
Another way to look at your career path and be comfortable with the fact that it might not work out exactly how you intend for it to do so. But, following your dreams and passions, and taking the right steps, will ultimately get you to where you need to be, or have you veering off on a different trail. However, in the end, you will know that you have done what you can.
“You can’t be that kid standing at the top of the waterslide, overthinking it. You have to go down the chute.” – Tina Fey
This is a great quote to remember if you are feeling nervous. Imagine yourself being that kid at the top of the waterslide, and how standing there overthinking things is delaying others behind you. You just have to go for it.
“Decide whether or not the goal is worth the risks involved. If it is, stop worrying.” – Amelia Earhart
Sometimes it is all about deciding whether or not the goal is worth it, and if it is worth it, then you need to take the right steps to make it become your reality.
“Some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all — in which case, you fail by default.” — J.K. Rowling
Often we can place such emphasis on failure, but merely a failure is your attempt at trying, and that is something to be celebrated and not feel down about. Failure is inevitable, and as J.K. Rowling states if you don’t fail, then you have not lived.
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.” – Aristotle
The more you do, the more you achieve, and the more you keep going and climbing. The more you do, the more it becomes a habit.
“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” – Albert Einstein
If you want to achieve the next step in your career, then having the goal to move forward can lead you to have a happier life. It gives you a purpose if you were wanting to reach the next step in your career. Achieving something that you have set as a goal is very satisfying.
“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.” – Tony Robbins
Finally, it can be hard to visualise the end result but the truth is, if you set goals, you have taken the first step for turning the invisible into something tangible. So setting the goal for that next step in your career, a career change, or to start your own business means you have made the first important move.
Hopefully, these motivational quotes will help you to achieve your career goals.
