15 Monday Motivation Quotes to Kickstart a Good Week

The worst thing about the weekend is that it passes so quickly, and then comes Monday. Almost every one of us hates Mondays, or at least hated them at some point in our lives. Sometimes, all we need is a little bit of Monday Motivation!

Some people are lucky enough to find a quick fix for the Monday blues, but some struggle for years. So, if you are someone who is still struggling to beat the Monday blues, this article is specifically for you!

The fact of the matter is, if you are struggling with Monday blues, you lack the motivation to jump energetically out of your bed on Monday mornings. Even if you happen to do so and reach the workplace, you find yourself foggy on how to get moving.

Well, it’s the time for a change, and you must know that the world is not going to change for you; it’s you who has to bring the change within yourself.

I already discussed some tips to make Mondays productive, but tips do not always change the inner self. Motivational quotes and inspirational sayings work more like magic at times, and especially when you find yourself in distresses.

Here in this article, I will share some inspirational quotes to motivate you on Monday and other days.

Let’s start it with this one:

1. “So. Monday. We meet again. We will never be friends – but maybe we can move past our mutual enmity toward a more positive partnership.”

We know that Monday morning is not the most popular time of the week for many people as they have great difficulties with getting started on a Monday morning. You may also be one of the Monday victims, but forget about your own difficulties for a while and think of others, and it can change the entire situation.

2. “Take a minute and encourage someone you work with today.”

In the same context, having to get up on Monday morning can be a blessing in disguise.

3. “I have to go to work on Mondays, and yes everyone hates Mondays. But I look at it a little differently. I don’t have to work. I GET to work. I am blessed to have a job while many don’t have one.“

Getting up and reaching the workplace on Monday is a milestone for many, but the Monday sluggishness may remain there.

At times, even people working from home find it difficult to find focus after the weekend. If that is the case with you, this is the time to realize how important this time of the week is. In fact, how you start your Monday morning can have quite an impact upon the entire week ahead. Do remember these words:

Don’t let the fact that it’s Monday stop you from achieving your goals. Break down what you need to do, complete the smaller tasks, and eventually, you’ll find all your work done, and done well.

14. “People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.”

To end the list, we want to emphasize that Monday is never an excuse to let your spirits falter! If you want to be successful, you’ll have to get those thoughts out of your head for good. Successful people don’t let a day of the week cloud their lives for too long. Now, get out there and do!
