Sometimes we all have those days where motivation is low, the scale lies, the work is too hard, the sun won't come out, you just don't want to bother, or it's easier just to eat the cake and not worry about it.

Yup, we all have them.

So when you do have them, here are some great, wise, words for you to ponder...

“The road to success is always under construction”
― Lily Tomlin

"Follow your passion, stay true to yourself, never follow someone else’s path unless you’re in the woods and you’re lost and you see a path then by all means you should follow that."
― Ellen Degeneres

"People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily."
― Zig Ziglar

"I believe that if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade... And try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka, and have a party."
― Ron White

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go." – Dr. Seuss
