Anxiously Engaged

These five quotes will strengthen your resolve and motivation to work hard


MOTIVATION: noun. The general desire or willingness of someone to do something.
See also: agency, determination, purposefulness, resolve, self-discipline, willpower.

We all strive for accomplishment. We want to do better and be better. Our goals and aspirations help us stretch and grow, but our motivation often fizzles out, undermined by distractions and procrastination.

We can find the strength, determination, and willpower to achieve our goals through our relationship with the Savior. Our understanding of the gospel can help us move forward in our lives, continually being active and striving to become more like our Father in Heaven.

Here are five quotes and a video to help you find motivation in the gospel.

Verily I say, men should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will, and bring to pass much righteousness; For the power is in them, wherein they are agents unto themselves. And inasmuch as men do good they shall in nowise lose their reward.
D&C 58:27-28
To reach a goal you have never before attained, you must do things you have never before done.
Elder Richard G. Scott


Keep going and the Lord will help you.
Elder D. Todd Christofferson
