Don’t you just love sports quotes? I know I do, quotes that inspire me, quotes to learn from. I’d write them down – even draw little cartoons to go with them. I’d look at them over and over again. I’d stick them on my wall, next to my computer screen and anywhere that I’d see them on a regular basis. Hopefully the following quotes on my new blog will inspire you and your friends. Share and enjoy them!

Have a look and let me know what you think – it’s very early days but any feedback will be appreciated.
“There ain’t no free lunches in this country. And don’t go spending your whole life commiserating that you got the raw deals. You’ve got to say, ‘I think that if I keep working at this and want it bad enough I can have it.’ It’s called perseverance.”
Businessman and Former CEO of Chrysler
Here’s a few of my other favourite motivational and inspirational quotes…
The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t. – Henry Ward Beecher
Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves. – Dale Carnegie
When the world says, “Give up,”
Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”

I’m just as committed to cartooning as this guy is to footballing…
Here are a few of my favourite ‘Commitment’ quotes…
“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.”
“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.” – Mario Andretti
“Individual commitment to a group effort — that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” – Vince Lombardi
Visualize your way to Success!
Here’s a cartoon I did for a client for a calendar on Football/Soccer Motivation…
Here’s a few quotes that I found while researching….
“Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blue print, and begin to build.” – Robert Collier
“People who soar are those who refuse to sit back, sigh and wish things would change. They neither complain of their lot nor passively dream of some distant ship coming in. Rather, they visualize in their minds that they are not quitters; they will not allow life’s circumstances to push them down and hold them under.” (Not sure who wrote this one!)
Or this one…“Losers visualize the penalties of failure. Winners visualize the rewards of success.”
Got Momentum on Your Goals?
By Jill Koenig
I am here to remind you that there has never been a better time in human history to go after your Goals and Dreams than right now.
But you need Momentum.
I set my Goals, took immediate massive action, started the journey and have taken action every single day since then.
What I lacked in technical knowledge, I made up for with massive action. Momentum.
What I lacked in financial backing, I made up for with massive action. Momentum.
What I lacked in skill, I made up for with massive action. Momentum.
Massive action = Momentum
I didn’t wait for everything to be perfect, for the economy to be just right, for every circumstance to line up in my favor- I just got started and took massive action.
I can assure you, whatever you want to do, whatever Goals you aspire to achieve, whatever Dreams you yearn for, you can have them. But not if you don’t ever begin and not if you don’t commit to taking massive action right now today.
The ball is in your court. Always has been, always will be.
You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.
Whatever you lack, make can up for with massive action.
What can you do today to advance your most cherished Goal?
Take the first step and revise your plan as you go.
Do it NOW.
Live Your Dreams.

Why Motivational Posters Aren’t Cheesy!
By Harald Anderson
I don’t want to say people are basically negative but…..if there was a camera and it could photograph the pictures in your mind what would it look like? When I asked myself that question it actually made me laugh quite a bit. I like to think of myself as a determined self starter but to be completely honest there are times when I confront a new project and I am scared to death.
One of the principles of success that I learned a long time ago is that either you define the event or the event defines you. This little definition is quite profound and explains why having beautiful posters with inspirational captions can add meaning and value to a companies culture and bottom line.
Inspiration comes in all colors and styles. But the key point is that if there is something that makes people believe more in their own abilities to succeed I say, that is a good thing. There have been numerous times in my life and career when a simple motivational phrase has worked wonders. How about you?
Here are a few quotes from some motivational posters that have helped me a lot:
“The greater the difficulty, the more glory in surmounting it.”
“Climb as high as you can dream.”
“If you are not living on the edge, you are taking too much room.”
Success in business is due to a number of reasons but FOCUS is definitely one important factor. These messages are often enough to make me believe that I can push through whatever obstacle comes up in my path.
How about you? What legacy will you leave behind for others to emulate?
To Motivate or Not to Motivate…that is the QUESTION.
Over the years I have read the biographies of many successful individuals. In so doing, I have discovered that these super achievers view setbacks as a learning opportunity. As I contemplate this basic reality I have learned a few things myself, among them that I can accomplish much more with genuine enthusiasm and a good game plan than with anything else. Also, that it is not persistence that wins but learning from the disappointments.
My company is filled with beautiful images of motivational posters. Not only because we sell them. It is because they work! Motivational posters help to create an environment that is solution oriented. In our company we value solutions and the posters on our walls help reinforce that culture. Any Tom, Dick or Harry can find a problem. The skill and rewards in life arrive when we deliver the solution.
I find this very uplifting. With a little bit of genuine inspiration it is incredible as to what is possible.
When I am inspired… my dreams… become realities!
Be careful what you agree with!

I used to use this one as a positive affirmation that I’d look at everyday and repeat over and over again. I’m never short of ideas!
I’ve been an cartoon artist for over twenty five years, and I’ve drawn all kinds of comics, posters, postcards etc. I can tell you that they come in very handy when looking to motivate people. I’ve done them for companies that used them to inspire their staff, their sales team and even their colleagues to work harder, faster and better.
You’ll be amazed at how effective they can be. It all goes back to the simple fact that a little humour goes a long way toward helping people to remember things. Also, as it’s done via a visual medium, that helps too. There’s that old saying: “A picture is worth a thousand words”. So, if you get the right images, coupled with your words, you’ll have a winning combination.
I can do both postcards and posters, created from a brief that you send me. And don’t worry about time; I don’t have to have it via snail-mail. You just e-mail me an outline of what you need, and I’ll create a rough sketch as a first draft. After that, you review it, make additions, subtractions and/or changes; then I’ll go to work on finalizing all of the artwork.
Once I’ve got things just the way you want them, I’ll send you the approved artwork. You can get them in either full colour or black and white. It all really depends on your budget. After all, colour does cost more, but you might think it’s worth it.
Still, no matter what you need me to create, you’ll have posters and/or postcards that are tailor-made to your company and your message. Believe me, they are a great motivational tool.
I have to include a shameless plug every now and then to try and drum up some future business!
