10 Incredibly Inspiring Quotes for 2017

Whose fave: Michael, COO | Why: “I think life is about the choices we make. Even if a wrong choice was made, it’s better to be in the direction you are passionate about. This way you will enjoy the journey and not only the result.”

Many of us head into a new year wondering how it’s going to be different from the last. The truth is, unless we’re really set on a goal or achievement of some kind, not much will change. If things are good or, at least, decent we’ll float on. If things aren’t the greatest, we might hope for change, but we won’t make any moves towards it.

Getting inspired at the start of each year is easy. Everyone’s on the same bandwagon, so hopping on is a no-brainer.  Staying inspired throughout the year is the real challenge. We went around the Viber offices asking people what quotes they always look to when they need some extra encouragement. You’ll find the push you need in at least one of these if and when you fall off that bandwagon.
