15 Empowering Quotes About Personal Development From Influential People

Personal Development is a word that hides so many things within.

By WIKIPEDIA – Personal development consists of activities that develop a person’s capabilities and potential, build human capital facilitate employability, and enhance quality of life and the realization of dreams and aspirations. Personal development may take place over the course of an individual’s entire lifespan and is not limited to one stage of a person’s life.


One way to keep yourself motivated each day and to drive towards your goals is to read and listen to all the inspirational leaders out there who influence us.  As it is important to start the day with positivity, sticking your favorite quote on the wall and reading it first thing in the morning can actually set your mindset the right path for the rest of the day. The collection of these inspirational quotes I collected below are the ones that have the most effect on me.

15. “The most beautiful moments in life are moments when you are expressing your joy, not when you are seeking it.“ ― Sadhguru

For last and as an extra I would just like to quote Will Smith again about love and happiness.

“her happiness is not my responsibility. She should be happy and I should be happy individually. Then we come together and share our happiness. Giving someone a responsibility to make you happy when you can’t do it for yourself is selfish.

Let’s take responsibility for our own lives and start taking actions immediately.

I hope these quotes will inspire you as much as they do inspire me! I wish you all the success and happiness whichever path you are choosing to take!
