11 Favourite Inspirational Quotes That Actually Make You Want To Get Stuff Done


Ladies, no more putting up with verbal abuse. This has to stop.

If that happy “inspirational quote” comes up again on my feed, I will instantly de-friend, unfollow, bin our friendship forever.

I will delete your contact and report you. The gods of social media will block your account. What? No sharing my selfies??

Sounds harsh? Well then, take some of this:

“There’s no time like the present”Best way to make me feel like I’ve just totally wasted my whole day/ week/life.

“Just be yourself, everyone else is taken”I realise that Miranda Kerr would totally give this the thumbs up. Myself however, I’m a work in progress. And that’s totally fine.

“You CAN do it”. Really? You don’t know me. You don’t know for a fact that I can do it, so don’t tell me I can just to make me feel like a loser because actually, really, sometimes I can’t.

They will make you want to get sh*t done, get your a** over to that workout or just crack you up – scientifically proven to release happiness hormones. And remind you that it’s totally fine if you can’t do it and would much rather have the doughnut instead.

This one is a good place to start:

Some of the best fitness quotes are gloriously un-fitness-y:

“I have 99 problems and I’m going to the gym to ignore them all”. I’ll hang out by the squat rack and take selfies instead.

Have you ever noticed how there’s always a bakery next to the fitness studio?

“Where is this kitchen that everyone says makes abs?”. Do they also make the bums?

The real reason why you should just be yourself:


“Fake it till you make it” . Very useful when everyone seems to know the routine and you’re the only one who forgot the dumbbells outside.

Really check. Here’s a reminder before considering the next fad diet:

Sometimes it’s not rocket science:

The good news is that “Good things come to those who sweat”. Fact.
