Quotes to Bring Out Your Inner Girl Boss

Work can sometimes bring us in a rut that we become unproductive and unmotivated. I, as an online freelancer who doesn’t have a definite schedule and doesn’t have an office filled with co-workers, sometimes I tend to procrastinate a lot. I have to fix my own schedule, prioritize what needs to be done first, and all that jazz. I love my job, don’t get me wrong but sometimes it’s hard to focus on that when all you see is work, work, work.

Being inspired really works for me when it comes to productivity. I have been saving these motivational quotes for months now whenever I stumble upon one on Instagram (Thank God for this new feature). It sure fueled my passion for my work whenever I see them.

Even if you’re an employee, you can still be your own boss by having control on your outlook towards your work. The more you’re inspired, the more you’ll get things done.

Here are some of my favorite quotes. 

Hope this changes your mood towards working. Always go for what you want. Don’t give up and always have a positive attitude in what you do. It may sometimes be hard but cliche as it sounds, it will always be worth it.

    Hi, Ali 🙂 These are really nice quotes! I love the second one, can I download it? Hehe, I need some motivation myself. I can totally relate to the freelance life, sometimes I feel so overwhelmed I don’t know what to do first, sometimes I’m unmotivated AF that I just lie in bed and waste all my time on social media, haha. Your blog came in perfect timing!

    I like the “I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling” quote. I have a different course in college and it’s really not related blogging or anything online. Nevertheless, I really like blogging and it just makes me happy. Your quotes are on point and it’s in pink. Hihi. Thank you for sharing them, Alissa 🙂

    Same here! It really takes discipline for you to make it work ‘no? I guess that’s just one of the “cons” of a work that doesn’t require you to go to the office at a certain time. You really have to be self-motivated. Lol There are days wherein I get demotivated with my work too and all I want to do is just eat and watch shows/movies but just like what’s written in the pencil, gotta #hustle! These quotes are a great way to motivate myself. Thanks for sharing Alissa! 🙂

    I love how those quotes look so pleasing like they’re from one well-curated IG feed. I feel the same way, too. Mostly when my work needs constant creative juices I end up being uninspired, all thanks to Pinterest and Instagram for all those design inspirations and as well as motivational quotes like these. 🙂

    Aw I love these quotes! Especially the, “hey you, stop comparing yourself to strangers on the internet” because sometimes I find myself in such a depressed mood when I’m scrolling through my Instagram feed and seeing people on vacations. Really needed to hear that particular quote. Thanks so much!!
