If I’m not able to do that it doesn’t matter that I know more and are more competent.”

If you decide to neglect your health, do you think you will be paying for it down the line? Of course. If you choose to spend your spare time watching TV instead of reading a book that can help improve the quality of your life, do you think that will have an effect on your life? You bet. So how can motivational quotes change your life? They can do this by motivating you to realize certain truths that will cause you to change your current actions.
