The Most Motivational Quotes for Our Soul Journey

Most motivational quotes are geared towards motivating us to accomplish a goal or to give us a nudge when we are at a standstill.

The quotes on this page are the most motivational quotes for energizing our soul journey, in my opinion.  Some quotes simply remind us of the importance of being on our spiritual journey.  Other quotes challenge beliefs we may have been carrying around—beliefs that may have prevented us from starting our spiritual journey or stopped us in mid-stream.  Still other quotes may open our eyes to different ideas, inspiring us in whole new ways.  The sky’s the limit! 

I invite you to be aware of the power that is stored in the most motivational quotes on this page, as they are the “bare bones” truth as the author knows it.  What you think you know may be turned upside down or even sideways.

My List of the Most Motivational Quotes


New! “If you step back for a moment and witness the choices you are making as you make those choices, then in just this act of witnessing, you take the whole process from the unconscious realm into the conscious realm.  This procedure of conscious choice-making and witnessing is very empowering.”

New! “When you make any choice—any choice at all—you can ask yourself two things: First of all, ‘What are the consequences of this choice that I’m making?’  In your heart you will immediately know what these are.  Secondly, ‘Will this choice that I’m making now bring happiness to me and to those around me?’  If the answer is yes, then go ahead with that choice.  If the answer is no, if that choice brings distress either to you or to those around you, then don’t make that choice.”
