Barney Stinson is famous for all kind of awesome things in his life. His quotes are for instance almost exclusively good. Take a look at a short list of Barney Stinson Quotes if you don't know what I am talking about.

Furthermore he has an awesome appartment, with all types of cool manly stuff inside. But one thing in his life is a big mystery: his work. What is the job Barney Stinson is earning that much money from? Perhaps we will never find out. One thing is for sure, we do get to see his amazing office.

One thing which is very special to it are the series of motivational posters he has hanging in his office. Where normal office people have one, pathetic 'teamwork' poster hanging somewhere Barney has around 14 of them. Although there are a lot of Barney Stinson Motivational Posters, we are going to discuss three of the most important of them.

Barney Stinson Motivational Posters


This is the poster with a quote from Barney Stinson himself:

'When I'm sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead'

Of course a great rule to live by. There are a lot of sad things happening to our lives, but should you let this negativity rule your life? Make decisions based on emotions? Well, not on negative, that is for sure.

There is no magical cure to being sad, but there is something to it with this quote. You just stop being sad and be cool, have fun again. This allows you to have more fun, to inspire more people and to start being happy again.

One more thing: there are flying jets on them. Awesome right? Remember Barney is a big fan of the movie Top Gun!


'Challenge ACCEPTED' is another famous quote from Stinson. The quote on the poster though is:

"We either find a way or we make one"

This is another thing Barney is living by for sure.

He is all about taking on challenges, to challenge people in doing legendary things, to broaden his horizon, whether you like it or not.

One of the challenges he took on went a little too far though. Barney was betting he could do the same tricks a sushi master did in one of the episodes against Marshall. But just when he showed that he could do, indeed, all the tricks, Lily got in the way and Barney lost the bet. This meant that Barney had to wear a ducky tie for the rest of the year..

Still, taking on challenges is something interesting, it puts fun into some boring things!


"You will always miss 100% of the shots you don't take"

Maybe this is a little old fashioned. Still, it is something to live by. Just do it, just give it a try. Why not?

There are many opportunities in our life, we need to make sure we seize every one, or at least most of them, of them.

This is also something Barney is living up to, when he sees an opportunity for a legendary moment he takes it. He seizes that moment, he takes in the challenge and uses it to become a better person!
