Motivational NYE Quotes
The new year is time for a change and a fresh start, and undoubtedly we all look forward to saying goodbye to 2020 and welcoming in 2021.
We’ve put together some inspirational New Year’s Eve quotes that are perfect for you to pass on to your loved ones to give them the encouragement they need to achieve their goals in the following year.
1 “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.” – Albert Einstein
Not everyone can do things right the first time, and mistakes are inevitable. However, learning from your mistakes, living, and growing, that’s how life works. And that’s how you can hope to change the future.
2 “You are never too old to reinvent yourself.” – Steve Harvey
No one lives forever, so live your life to the fullest. Instead of regretting something you couldn’t do in the past, try thinking of a different way to do it now. It’s all depending on you and age is just a number.
3 “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” – George Eliot
4 “Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.” – Karen Kaiser Clark
5 “Yesterday is the past, tomorrow is the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.” – Bil Keane
It’s no use living in the past, regretting every bad decision you’ve ever made. By holding on to the past and the mistakes you have made, you close the blind on the bright future that awaits you. So accept the past, embrace it, and treasure what you currently have. That’s the key to open the door to the future.
6 “Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go. They merely determine where you start.” – Nido Qubein
You can’t choose where you’re born, which family you’re born into, but one thing you can choose is how your decisions will influence your life. Whether you come from a wealthy family or a family of 5 that can hardly make ends meet, you can always try to be better.
7 “Don’t always try to be the best one hundred percent, try to be one percent better at a time.” – One Percent Better
No one is perfect, and not everyone is good at everything they do. So don’t try to be the best at everything; try being the better version of yourself each day, one step at a time.
New Years’ Eve is a magical moment when the ball drops and counts down to the end of a meaningful year while welcoming what’s yet to come in the new year. These NYE quotes capture the moment of excitement, which expresses our gratitude for the past and our future hopes.
8 “Out with the old, in with the new.”
Just as the saying goes, you shouldn’t keep clinging to the past as it will prevent you from seeing what lies ahead. To keep it simple, you can imagine life is a box full of wonders; you won’t have room to put anything new in if you insist on keeping your old sad memories. Although it’s those past unpleasant memories that sometimes keep us going, it’s better to know when to let things go.
9 “Youth is when you’re allowed to stay up late on New Year’s Eve. Middle age is when you’re forced to.” – Bill Vaughan
10 “And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been.” – Rainer Maria Rilke
New Year’s Resolutions Quotes
11 “It doesn’t matter where you came from, all that matters is where you are going.” – Brian Tracy
Just like Nido Qubein’s quote, your social status or origin doesn’t define who you are; what matters is how you define yourself as a person. There’s nothing to be ashamed about not having an expensive car, a high paying job, or a beautiful house like your peers. You may not have any of those, but if the life you’re living right now brings you joy and happiness, that’s all you need to worry about.
12 “Tomorrow is a new day. Begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
13 “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Lao Tzu
Life is an incredible journey, just keep your head up straight and aim for the direction you want to go; sooner or later, you’ll get there. And remember, the most important thing is to stay true to yourself, be the best you can be, and never give up. That’s how you can achieve your goals in the year ahead!
