30 Motivational Quotes to help you stay inspired in 2021

Last year was a difficult year for a lot of us. Times were hard for small businesses and some had to close down what they worked so hard to create. For others of us our jobs put a heavier workload on us while those in managing roles reaped the rewards of the unit's hard labor. For students, school and college became very challenging for those who were not used to online learning. Well, here we are in 2021 and some of us may be feeling a little defeated. So, I put a list of quotes together that can give us some motivation this year when we are feeling down and discouraged. One thing I say to myself a lot is “This is not my end all be all, I have a purpose and God has a plan for me to prosper.” Finding inspiration during times when we feel like throwing in the towel is very important to keep us motivated, pushing forward, and fighting for our success. Here are 30 Quotes to help us stay motivated in 2021 and moving forward.
