Motivational Quotes As A Job Interview Tool – Forbes

– Posted in: career coaching, interviewing

In my latest job search advice post for Forbes.com Work In Progress, I share how powerful motivational quotes can be to raise your performance at job interviews (and other high-stakes career events). I also share some of my favorite quotes:

Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in.– Napoleon Bonaparte

When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this: you haven’t. ” Thomas Edison

We are the hero of our own story. — Mary McCarthy

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe – Anatole France

Throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover – Mark Twain

No great deed is done by falterers who ask for certainty – George Eliot

When you walk with purpose, you collide with destiny – Bertice Berry

Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.’ – Mary Anne Radmacher

There are no limits. There are plateaus, and you must not stay there; you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you – Bruce Lee

So many of our dreams at first seem impossible…and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable. – Christopher Reeve

I hope my achievements shall be these…that I will have left the earth a better place for what I’ve done and who I’ve been – C. Hoppe

I don’t think in terms of failure….I don’t feel like anyone outside of me should be setting limitations.  People should be encouraged to shoot for the moon.  –  Whoopi Goldberg

The important thing is this:  to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become. – Charles DuBois

I believe it is better to live a dream rather than to simply dream it.  The dream is the start of something greater, something that impels us to make daring decisions.  And it’s true that the person who pursues a dream takes many risks.  But the person who does not runs risks that are even greater. — Paulo Coelho

When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure.  – Peter Marshall
