5 Inspirational Quotes to Help Get Through the Semester

It is getting to that point in the semester when all the work is piling up and it seems like it never stops.
Sometimes, you need to take a step back and just refocus. Here are some quotes that help me get
through the stressful days:

1. “Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their
desires to reach their potential”- John Maxwell


2. “Strive for progress, not perfection”-Unknown


3. “There are no shortcuts to any place worth going”-Beverly Sills


4. “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just
one more time”-Thomas Edison


5. “You’ve got to get up every morning with determination if you’re going to bed with
satisfaction”-George Lorimer


I recommend reading through these once a day to keep your motivation going. It can be hard to push
through when there is so much to do, but you’ll be glad you did. Self-care is extremely important at this
point in the semester. Don’t put your needs aside! Manage your time, keep going, and relax. You will get
through this!
