In this age of rapid consumption of information, speedy bursts of inspiration have become a huge trend, and somewhat of an obsession, on social media.

Whether it’s inspirational quotes on Twitter or images of motivating phrases accompanied with a background of a scenic landscape on Pinterest, these strings of words fill us with positivity and encouragement.

This gave us an idea.

Staying inspired is key to success, whether you’re executing a project, planning an event or designing a future campaign. Setbacks or failures that may occur need to be recognized, addressed and learned from, in order to circumvent loss of morale, which can then deter productivity. These quotes can have the power to give any recruiter the courage to overcome challenges.
