50 Motivational Quotes to Inspire You in the New Year

Motivational Quotes to Inspire You to Be the Best YOU in 2020!

By: Bailey Holtz

New year, new you, right? That’s the old saying? But what if you don’t feel like a new person yet? What if you don’t have the “oomph” you’ve been hoping for to kick off the new year? What if you’re still in hibernation-mode, not yet ready to seize the chance at a fresh start?

Firstly, feeling sluggish during the winter months is completely normal! According to News in Health, the National Institute for Health’s monthly newsletter, many people feel blue and unmotivated around the holidays and the winter. Luckily, in most cases, these feelings can be cleared away by a little sunshine and some helpful motivation from your friends at Pure-Ecommerce

Psychology Today reports that humans are motivated by the need for power, the need for affiliation, and the need for achievement. Sometimes, though, we lose our connection to those motivating factors. When we forget that we desire achievement, when we forget that we desire affiliation, it can be helpful to read words of wisdom from powerful people we admire. 

If you’ve got the blues, we’ve got just the words to get you back to your happy, productive self again! Here are 50 motivational quotes we adore. They always get us up and raring to go, on even the coldest and darkest of mornings!
