Tax Season Motivation

Tax season is approaching and that can only mean one thing: stress. It’s something everyone must deal with, but for accountants and tax preparers the beginning of the year comes bearing extra challenges.

While it can be overwhelming, it’s important to remember that there is light at the end of the tunnel and you can overcome whatever this tax season throws your way. Here are five inspiring quotes to read whenever you’re feeling particularly stressed and need help getting through your work:

  1. “Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion.” -Simon Sinek
  2. “If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. It’s the hard work that makes it great.” -Tom Hanks
  3. “The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.” -Molière
  4. “In times of great stress or adversity, it’s always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive.” -Lee Iacocca
  5. “Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” -Michael Jordan

We hope you take time to look back at these quotes whenever you need a little motivation to keep going. Remember that the work you do is important! Stress may come with the job, but so does the pride in being able to accomplish it.
