Every week, we release a #MondayMotivation quote on our social channels in hopes of inspiring success through the words of heroes, leaders, and thinkers. We pull words of wisdom from the mouths of celebrities, entrepreneurs, and niche speakers. We look to an array of industries, because each informs the other.
Personal and professional motivation comes in many forms from family, friends, coworkers, or managers. It can resonate in our hearts with fervor. It can take root in our thoughts and help mold our dreams. With each piece of wisdom, we’re prompted to ask ourselves how we can improve something around us, or more importantly, how we can better ourselves.
Visualizations ignite inspiration like no other. Our graphic designers thoughtfully communicate the essence of these quotations using illustration, pictures, layout, and typography. We hope our ongoing roundup of powerful quotes on success, leadership, and creativity continues to light a fire within you.
