34 Quotes About Devotion to Inspire you to go for your Goals


It’s January 2024 and our theme for the month inside our MerryBody Community is Devotion. Looking at self-improvement you’ll hear a lot about how you need to be disciplined to reach your goals. But what if you used the word ‘devoted’ instead? Take a read of these 34 quotes about devotion, no doubt they will get you feeling inspired to take a step towards your goals.

When you think about it, we are all devoted to many things.

Perhaps you are devoted to your kids, your family or your friends? Maybe it’s to your health? Perhaps it’s to your career goals or social life? Or maybe you are devoted to your TV shows or books? 

To figure out what you are devoted to, think about who and what you think about most. What do you make time for? What and who do you prioritise? 

There is no right or wrong answer here. But it’s a great idea to have self-awareness around what you are devoted to because so often you can be devoted to something you don’t want to be devoted to.

For example, we could say we are pretty devoted to scrolling on social media. Urghhh… it’s time to stop this one!

Always merrymaking,
