You know what I truly love about quotes, they have the power to shift a person from inaction to action, from lethargy to inspired, from inactive to incredibly active.

I read motivational quotes on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook all the time – and it’s something about words that really make me want to get up and get going, they make me want to turn my dreams into reality and work towards what I really want in life.

Don’t you ever get that way when you read a good quote? Take this one for instance - “The difference between try and triumph is a little UMPH!” – simple, yet so effective.

So this month, considering it’s getting warmer down here in Australia, I am looking for the creme de la creme of motivational quotes. Have you read anything recently that makes you quiver, makes you smile or words that you truly connect with? I want to hear them for this month’s motivational quote competition.

Here’s how it goes:

You find your absolute favourite quote – could be fitness related, health or wellbeing related or even a quote that just simply puts you in a good mood – and put it in the comment box below. You can enter as many times as you wish, provided each entry is unique.

And in return, I’m offering a huge healthy hamper with all my favourite goodies, worth $150, courtesy the very generous GoodFit PR.

Now get commenting because you have until Friday the 19th of September 2014 6.00pm (AEST) to get your favourite quotes in.
