OPINION: Don't try and inspire me with hollow quotes

"NOTHING is achieved without great enthusiasm".

I walked into our office and spotted that written on our board. 

What's going on here. Are they trying to inspire me?

Because I'm not into it. At all.

You will never catch me wearing a slogan Lorna Jane tee telling you to "move, nourish, believe".

Nor will you see me taking part in a photo-a-day "Facebook gratitude" challenge.

#inspirational is not something I tweet about.

I don't embrace this "inspirational lifestyle".

We all have our motivators in life. Mine is not a cryptic inspirational quote plastered on my Facebook wall.

"You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it." *Rolls eyes*.

"If the plan doesn't work, change the plan, but never the goal". Spare me!

I went to a life coach once.

Call it a quarter-life crisis, I don't know, but I thought it would be a great idea to get some direction on things.

I straight up told my life coach that I didn't like inspirational quotes and she was stumped.

Needless to say those appointments didn't continue.

I'm a very realistic person, I can't just go with the flow or let life take me wherever it wants to.

I like plans and I don't like it when those plans fail. I hate change.

Let's get a grip on this world, not tell people to "Just go with the flow and trust the universe".

I'm not "moved". I'm not "nourished". I don't "believe".

But man I'm a good go-to for an honest opinion.

My inspirational quote?

"Life's hard, just work hard and get on with it."
