Lately, I’ve noticed that the demands of work and the sea of activities which we are immersed in means that we often don’t appreciate all the good things that life gives us, particularly when we get up first thing on a Monday morning! So every morning when I get to work and browse the Internet, I find a quotation that makes me think. I quickly change my mindset and realize just how lucky I am to have such good people around me and that I learn something new each day. A few lines are enough to spur me on and make me eager to start the day and do the best job I can. That’s why I want to share the most inspirational quotes that have had an impact on me.
