Here are some funny inspirational quotes and sayings to help you look at whatever step you need to take next in a new, happier light.

“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” – Jack London
Don’t wait for opportunities to come to you. Go full caveman on them: chase them down, club them over the head, and drag them back to your cave so you have a chance to make them a part of your story. Good things never come to those who wait. Good things come to those who are willing to hunt, work, and even fight for what they need.
“Change is not a four letter word…but often your reaction to it is!” – Jeffrey Gitomer
Change is often met at best with fear and dread, and at worst with outright violence. Change is something that should be welcomed because good or bad, change is something that is a part of life and cannot be avoided. Instead, welcome the new changes that enter your life and make the most of them, rather than railing against them and wasting your energy in an effort that will ultimately be futile.
“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” – Albert Einstein
You will never make everyone happy, especially if you set out to do something great. There will always be people who want to tear you down because they are jealous of what you have or angry because you want to change something about their status quo life. Don’t allow them to stop you. Step over them, step around them, or shove them bodily out of your path, but do not allow them to prevent you from reaching your dreams.
“Follow your passion, stay true to yourself, never follow someone else’s path unless you’re in the woods and you’re lost and you see a path, then by all means you should follow that.” – Ellen DeGeneres
There is a time for forging your own path and then there is a time for following the path that others have left for you. Forging your own path is great, until you’re lost and hungry and have lost your compass and don’t know which way is home. At that point you’re better off following the path someone else has laid, at least until you can get your bearings again.
“Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside – remembering all the times you’ve felt that way.” – Charles Bukowski
It’s easy, almost too easy, to give up and abandon your path altogether. Don’t let life, friends, enemies, or family prevent you from getting up every day and facing your dreams head-on. You may think that it’s not possible, or that there is no way that you could ever manage to get out of bed. If you’ve gotten out of that bed just once, then you have something to look back on, to remind you that you’ve done it before, so you can do it again.
