21 Inspirational Quotes (Read these Any Time Things Get Tough)

Below are some quotes to inspire you, along with some comments on how you can relate their meaning to your journey toward overcoming porn addiction.


“Hell on earth would be to meet the man you could have been”
Keith Cunningham

This is worth remembering every single day. Imagine you keep using porn for months and years . . . and then one day, you meet another version of yourself: the person who quit porn at this very moment and started transforming their life.

How would you feel seeing all the amazing things they’d achieved and experienced that you missed out on?

So every time you’re feeling tempted by porn, stop and think about the person you could become if you just say no and do something worthwhile instead.


“He who wants to grow a garden of roses doesn’t reserve a plot for weeds”

I remember reading something along these lines in an awesome book once, and it always stuck with me.

If you want to have an awesome life, fill it with only awesome things. When you do this, there’s no room left over to fit in the useless weed of pornography.


“When you want to be successful as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful”
Eric Thomas

From everything I’ve seen, a lot of people struggle to quit porn simply because they don’t want it badly enough.

Don’t be like that. Make sure you have a huge list of strong reasons for quitting that get you fired up and give you the drive to smash through this challenge!


“Do or do not; there is no try”
Yoda

So many people contact me after subscribing and tell me they’ll “try” to stop using porn. And I generally reply with a quick pep talk about their choice of words.

The mindset “try” weakens you from the very beginning. The mindset of committing fully to doing whatever it takes to overcome porn addiction is a whole different ball game.

So stop “trying” right now. Step up, commit 100%, and do it!


“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.”
Lance Armstrong

Shhh . . . don’t focus on what you think of Lance Armstrong these days. Just focus on what he said, because he’s right.

Overcoming porn addiction might be tough, but if you give up on your journey, the pain that porn causes you will never go away . . .


“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit”
Napoleon Hill

“Where there is no struggle, there is no strength”
Oprah Winfrey

“We gain the strength of the temptation we resist”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

One of the many incredible things that overcoming porn addiction will do is to shape your character and give you a strength that makes any other challenges in life much easier.

The tougher the process is, the more benefit you’ll get from succeeding. It’s just like lifting heavier weights in the gym.

So every time you encounter a difficult challenge when quitting porn, re-frame it as an awesome gift that will ultimately build you into an even better person.


“No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again”
Buddha

“Your past does not equal your future”
Tony Robbins

These quotes give a great reminder that you can always start moving forward and making things better from wherever you are.

So no matter how much porn you’ve used, or how many times you’ve relapsed after resolving to quit, you can make the change right now to create a different future.


“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”
Lao Tzu

If you’re feeling daunted by the idea of quitting porn for good, don’t focus on it too much. Just stay away from porn for today . . . and then do it all over again tomorrow.


“Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures as this will only fill your mind with grief, regret and depression. Do not repeat them in the future”
Swami Sivananda

This is such sound advice. If you relapse, it’s very common to beat yourself up and feel like crap for hours or days.

But this won’t help you to progress (in fact, it can seriously slow your progress).

Instead, learn whatever you can from your relapse and resolve not to make the same mistakes again next time. Then put it completely in your past and keep moving forward afresh.

Oh, you want some more quotes by famous people about getting back up after failing and persevering until you succeed? Sure, here you go:


“Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.”
Confucius

“It’s not whether you get knocked down; it’s whether you get back up”
Vince Lombardi

“Failure provides the opportunity to begin again, more intelligently”
Henry Ford

“I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
Michael Jordan

“There are countless times an inventor can give up on an idea. By the time I made my 15th prototype, my third child was born. By 2,627, my wife and I were really counting our pennies. By 3,727, my wife was giving art lessons for some extra cash. These were tough times, but each failure brought me closer to solving the problem.”
James Dyson

“Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never – in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never, Never, Never, Never give up.”
Winston Churchill


And for a different perspective on things:

“I heard about a high school in Chicago where students had to pass a certain number of courses to graduate, and if they didn’t pass a course, they got the grade ‘not yet’, and I thought that was fantastic. Because, if you get a failing grade, you think ‘I’m nothing; I’m nowhere’, but if you get the grade ‘not yet’, you understand that you’re on a learning curve; it gives you a path into the future”
Carol Dweck

This is a great way to view your journey. Your goal is to stay away from porn, but if you happen to relapse, it doesn’t even mean you’ve failed. It simply means you haven’t succeeded yet.


“It’s not over until you win”
Les Brown

I think that speaks for itself :)

Testimonials
"I used to think that porn was something I couldn't get over, but I was wrong. Once I started using Porn Free Power, I found it easy to jump start my recovery process. Each of Jay's resources is filled with effective steps that helped me break the addictive cycle.

Additionally, his online calls are extremely helpful because they are tailored to my needs. Finally, he has an effective accountability system set up which has helped me get to core of why I used porn in the first place. His accountability system has enabled me to become more transparent with myself and others about my porn use and has motivated me to continue my recovery journey.

I wouldn't be here without Jay's guidance in the process. Thanks for everything you've done with PFP!"

"For me, porn was a web of deceit I was ensnared in. I couldn't get free. As I've started doing the Action Series Porn Free Power offers, the different threads that had attached to my life long ago have begun to fall away. It's so effective and simple.

You have no idea how much power you possess until you meet Jay and the amazing support he offers, its life changing. Thanks so much Jay and PFP!"

"Hi Jay,

For a while I have been looking for material that I can use to develop a program that I can use in a group to help men overcome pornography addiction. Browsing the internet, I was looking for something real and authentic and practical.

So I stumbled onto Porn Free Power. And I really liked what I discovered. I like your approach, i like the practical way you tackle this. So I started my first group in September this year with 3 men.

PFP is a very practical tool. We use your resources as a group discussion or action (I am very strong on the emphasis that it is an action group, not just a support group) and as homework.

It has been so rewarding to be involved in this journey with these guys. The one guy especially has stopped his daily porn viewing. He is a new person, he now keeps a photo of his wife on their wedding day on his phone.

On a personal note, your resources have helped me with my own journey towards a porn free lifestyle. After I stopped porn, I continued to allow myself some pornographic scenes that I used during masturbation. But it was pulling me slowly back into porn again and it was reading through PFP that I realized that you can think porn as well. And it is as dangerous as watching porn.

Once again, thank you so much for your regular e-mails of encouragement. And on behalf of my group, thank you for allowing us to use your resources."

"Man Im gonna share with you something Ive never told anyone. Ive been waiting for it and todays audio came at a perfect time!

My story is much like yours. And at 31 I became a father. If you have kids you know, if not I will tell you: The moment a newborn enters the room, it is instantly filled with the most extreme love you can imagine! When we had our daughter and I got to hold her, I had the most powerful love-explosion I ever could imagine!

My heart was connecting to my newborn and I was at the deepest level her father, for life. The love was pure. true and so honest!

At that time my brain had it, could not take it! It could not handle it! It had been porn-wired for a long time and thats the anti-love. At first it keep saying fuck fuck, hell hell and stuff like that. Very disturbing to a first time father! I felt only love but my brain something else.

Later on it became even more disgusting, to a level that was hurting me very bad and I was haunted with the most disgusting words whenever I held my child. It took about a year or so to clean out, flush my dirty mind clean(er) I was so ashamed!

2 years later we had another child. I was nervous as hell for that experience to return. It didn't and we had a little boy. I was so relieved! It happened just after me starting to get your mails. So thats my story, and I promise my family to stay clean!

I really appreciate you trying to help your fellow brothers. Mostly brothers I suppose..:) I can't wait to hear from you again, your mails are always appreciate and longed for! Thank you for all that you do man, you save lives!"
Rob, Sweden


Here is an additional follow-up from Rob later:

"Well, I never thought I could stop in six months. Here I am with no big setback! The transformation has been rough at times. My mind is so badly wired from porn. You know theres absolutely no humanity in porn ! Ive gotten married and got a second child since your first mail so the rewards are huge! I still long for the quick fix when im tired or stressed, but my 2yr ord told me I was the worlds strongest yesterday. And thats what I need to be! For My family! Your work is great! Keep it up man! And thank you!"
Rob, Sweden


"Hey man porn free power helped me to realise that porn addiction start with you. Before you start saying you quit it should be for real, I said many times that I need to quit but I failed but after meeting jay I was able to know a way out. Jay always spend time giving us advice and also supporting us. I am proud to say I can see the light and I have quit porn."
Mathew S


"Hi Jay,

I have to say I have found the resources excellent so far. It takes constant reminders and fresh motivation to stay away from porn and prevent little relapses from happening, the emails we receive from you every few days do just that, helps to kind of freshen up our minds and keep us focused with new tips and strategies, now matter how big or small they are.

It's definitely working for me anyway, the odd little relapse here and there but I've pretty much stopped porn altogether.

Keep up the good work man you must be helping a lot of people.

Thanks"
Stephen


"I have not watched porn for almost 2 months now since using the Porn Free Power strategy.This is a huge achievement for me. I have also received unbelievable support from Jay.
I was desperate when I started this, now every day I feel stronger and in control.
THANK YOU Jay"
TP, Cape Town


"Hi Jay,

Thx for all your help. I have found that 'Inner Anchor','Inner Source of Power' that you indicated would be essential to victory over porn.This has given me a porn-free identity,giving NO PLACE to porn in my life at all.I am continually aware that I may NEVER become complacent.

I thought I want to let you know,but have waited a considerable time so as to absolutely, resolutely sure that porn is totally out of my life and this email confirms it for me!!!"
CL, UK


"The e-mails I have been receiving are great. I have been experiencing porn induced ED for years but now I'm full of hope. Day 5 in and Jay has been a real help."
