As I have discussed in the past, vinyl wall decals come in countless variations. Each one is really a piece of artwork and as such even the same basic design can take on different feelings when created by different designers. Motivational wall art is one of these categories that is growing in popularity. They are popular in gyms, home workout rooms, corporate settings, home offices, schools, and even in homes where sometimes you need that extra bit of focus.
One of my favorite motivational quotes comes from the second Rocky movie. It is a scene where Apollo’s trainer is trying to talk him out of a rematch with Rocky. The trainer looks at Apollo and says,
“I saw you beat that man like I never saw no man get beat before, and the man kept coming.”
That quote reminds me that no matter what circumstances life throws at me, no matter how much I feel like I have been completely beaten down, no matter how rough things are, that all that really matters is that “I keep going” headfirst right into the fire of life.

Motivational decals also tend to use a different selection of fonts than most other quotes. Edgy fonts that are more contemporary seem to fit the words better than flowing scripts. So these wall arts have a very different feel aesthetically as well.
Wall Decals in the Corporate Setting
Motivation in the workplace is a huge deal. Surrounding employees with positive messages that encourage and build them up can be the difference between a successful company and a failing one. Encouraging teamwork can help build the collaborative efforts of groups and can have a significant impact on productivity and innovation. Motivational wall art is one way to keep those positive messages in front of your teams. Meeting rooms, common areas, and even hallways are great places to put these team building messages.
Individuals also need that encouragement and motivation. Teams can often create their own momentum but individuals need to drive themselves and maintain their focus individually. Motivational messages can help and act as silent coaches when supervisors or team leaders aren’t there to encourage. Many a great idea has come after a simple word of encouragement.
Motivational Wall Art at Home
Let’s be honest. We all need that little word of encouragement occasionally. After a bad day at work, a frustrating day at school, or even just a plain old blah day, the right message can really help end the day on the right note. Sure, we always want to be there to offer that encouraging word to our kids but being there all the time just isn’t possible in this time-challenged world we all seem to live in. A motivational wall art may be just what your home needs to lift the spirits of the family. A simple message, a simple result, a small investment, a change in attitude that can make a world of difference.
Motivation at School
Schools are a place of fun and learning for many; but, can also be a place of frustration for others. With all the focus these days on bullying and just what appropriate behavior means, motivational wall art can help provide those simple reminders. Schools can utilize these wall decals in hallways, classrooms, gyms, libraries, cafeterias, and even the nurses’ office. These motivational messages could be incorporated into a school assembly program which allows both programs to reinforce the other for synergistic results.
At the wall art company I founded long ago, we work with many schools on programs such as these and saw some really positive results. Imagine being to able to change a countless children’s days with an investment that is likely under $20.
I can only speak for myself but some days the motivation to workout is very difficult to find. And, even if I find it, the desire to really push myself can also be very elusive. Self-motivation is tough. There are always a million other things that can seem so pressing to distract us from doing our daily exercises. Many of those distractions are very important and that just makes it easier to justify to ourselves to choose them over the gym or treadmill. Working at home you may think that I can always find the time to exercise; but, truth be told, it also means I am always near my office and I often use work to procrastinate other activities such as exercising that I should be doing.
I have many vinyl wall decals scattered around my home. Some of them uplift me, some remind me of the important things in life, and some give me a swift kick in the butt to stay motivated and focused. Each of these is important in their own right but sometimes the motivation to exercise is an area I can really use that extra little (or big) kick in the butt.
Motivational wall art can be of great value in so many ways and areas of our lives. It can actually be an investment into increased productivity in our work lives, more focused exercise routines at home or at the gym, more positive environments at schools, and even in the sanctuary, we call home. The real question is not whether you need motivational wall decals but rather, what message you need to see.
