Life Coach Quotes intro…

If there is one thing the Internet excels at, apart from social media spats and insalubrious content, it is entire sites full of heart-warming or philosophical quotations from public figures. Writers, politicians, celebrities, actors and industrial leaders, it seems, all have an innate ability to turn a phrase. As do executive life coaches and holistic life coaches.

Some holistic life coach quotes are even stirring enough to make it onto a motivational poster for the office wall, while the Internet’s own office wall, Pinterest, is stuffed full of them. Likewise, executive life coach quotes, where the rule seems to be that the more philosophical it is, the more likely it is to feature a sunset, forest canopy or pool of water.

Be careful, however; attribution is not the Internet’s best skill – as this quote illustrates:

“Don’t believe everything you read on the Internet just because there’s a picture with a quote next to it.”

Abraham Lincoln

Like the rest of us, a life coach will never match Lincoln’s fame, but many a life coach have offered general, sagely advice down the years, so we thought we would share some of them with you.
