Wednesday Motivation Quotes To Celebrate The End Of Half The Week

Every day of the week comes with its special challenges and rewards. Wednesday is no different. When Wednesday becomes the best day of the week, it means that we live a life of meaning and that we know how to make the best of each moment, no matter where we are.

~ Samantha Jobs

Reaching hump day could be trivial, but celebrating any small win works wonders for morale. 

The authors of The Progress Principle: Using Small Wins to Ignite Joy, Engagement, and Creativity at Work collected over 12,000 work diary entries from companies and analyzed them exhaustively. They then developed the Progress Principle. 

It states that making progress in something meaningful contributes to a positive inner work life and a positive attitude, even if it is a small win. So, however little progress you made on the first two days, remember it is still a step forward, and you have two more days to do more. 

You've made it to the midweek! Why not start with some morning affirmations and share some Wednesday wisdom? Or kick start your writing habit with some journal prompts - and pat yourself on the back while reading the following motivational Wednesday quotes.

That's why a few European languages derive Wednesday from Mercury. For example, in French, Wednesday is Mercredi. Meanwhile, in East Asian countries, the word is associated with water because the days are based on the Chinese philosophy called Wuxing
