I think of quotes as little doses of wisdom in my back pocket that I can recall when I’m having a difficult day. They capture important truths and give me a boost of inspiration when I’m feeling creatively uninspired. I wanted to share a few of my favorite quotes that speak to me and shape how I work and live my life.
“You’ve got to be in this cycle of making a mess in order to slowly organize it into the thing that over time will feel like the right thing.” – Seth Godin
Success is not linear! Especially during the design process, I find that my artboard tends to look like a scattered mess of half-decent ideas until finally something clicks. Piecing together what works eventually leads to a solution that fits perfectly with my client’s goals.
“Worrying is praying for stuff you don’t want.” – Jen Sincero
This is such an important way to frame worry and negative thinking. I believe that our thoughts carry tremendous power, and focusing on the negative will only bring out more negativity. This is why I continuously revisit my goals, and reframe any negative beliefs that I am telling myself.
“You can’t experience new lands from the confines of your comfort zone.” – Jen Sincero
I completely understand the feeling of imposter syndrome and wanting to stick to what I know I can do well. If I never branched out of my comfort zone, I would be missing out on SO many incredible opportunities like my podcast, my Minimind program, and so much more.
“Being rich is having money; being wealthy is having time.” – Margaret Bonnard
It’s easy to get caught up in what coaches and designers are telling you — 10K months = success. Since becoming a mom, my perspective on success has completely flipped on its head. Spending time with my family and being there for my son day-to-day is life giving and brings me more joy than money ever could.
“Take control of your calendar and you take control of your life.” – Jennifer Barrett
Boundaries, baby! Scheduling in 6 weeks of mandatory vacation, only taking calls on Mondays, and taking Fridays off has drastically improved my mental health and well-being.
I’d love to hear if any of these quotes have resonated with you. My DMs are always open on Instagram (@hellojunecreative), so please don’t hesitate to send me a message with some of your favorite quotes!
