This is where you will find daily inspiration for making changes, learning something new, and random acts of kindness.

4 Unchangeable Facts About Change

  1. Things are going to change.
  2. Things need to change to get better.
  3. Things change for better or worse.
  4. Things change with or without you.

Some people don’t change until they suffer enough, they want to, experience enough they learn to or grow enough they are able too.  Suffering is a reality.  It happens everyday in the lives of everyone and there is nothing we can do about it.  We do not have to be defined by the bad experiences in our lives.  Nor, by the choices we have made.  You can use both good and bad experiences and learn from them.  You can initiate change for the better.  Why not start now?

None of us are promised tomorrow.  Make every second of your life count for something good.

Internal growth is a choice you make that affects external circumstances.  Position your heart so that change becomes something that is instinctive and not extinctive.  You will be surprised how much better your life becomes.  Change brings new life, new insights, new relationships, and hope for better tomorrows.

“You can’t change your past but you can change your future.”

Your past only has a future if you give it one.  Stop taking it into every new day and new relationship.  Leave it where it is supposed to stay and that is in the past.  Stop dragging it around like a ball and chain.  Leave it where it was meant to stay and step forward into your future.  Your soul will feel free again and you will have hope for brighter tomorrows.

Inspiring Life Daily: Motivational Picture Quotes

Never doubt yourself.  Believe you can and you will.

Everyday is another chance to make a positive change to improve your life.

When life gets hard, you should pray about it.

Whatever happens, happens.  We must learn to take life for what it is, a series

of uncontrollable events that is out of our control.  So, we must learn to deal with it.

If you try and fail, you have succeeded at learning.

There are some people that are meant to be in our lives forever.  There are some that

are meant to be in our lives for awhile to encourage and inspire us.  To help us grow.  There are

those who are only in our lives for just a little while.  Just remember the good times you shared and what you

learned from them to help you progress in your dreams and aspirations.  That is what they were here for.

They are people.  Nourish your relation ships. Be good to those who care about

you the most.  Let them know you love them each and every day.  You never know what the next day, hour or

second may hold.

So, be brave.

It is never to late to turn your life around but do not waste another second.  Just do it.

You do not know what the next second may hold.

Dare to be different and never change who you are.

How to give meaning to a meaningless life

The Purpose Driven Life book cover

The greatest tragedy of life is for people to live and die and never come out of themselves, to never realize the possibilities hidden within them. Each time I come across people with huge potentials and who seem to be clueless about what to do with their innate abilities, my heart bleeds. To give meaning to your life you must live it on purpose. There is nothing as dangerous as living a life that has no bearing. Such a life will definitely be very boring.

The life we live can either have a meaning and purpose or not. The clearer your purpose in life is defined, the more fulfilled you will be as an individual. There is always another chance to pause and define the purpose of your life and give a meaning to your course.

How do you give meaning to a clueless life?

The way out is to discover who you are. When you know who you are it becomes easy to live a purpose-driven life. You would have discovered the purpose for which you are in this world.

So I want you to take time to ruminate over the following and answer them as truthfully as possible:

  1. Do I love where I am today?
  2. Am I in the job I would like to be in when I come of age?
  3. Am I using my natural talent to do what I love to do?
  4. Will I like to be the best of what I am doing today?
  5. What one thing do I need to do today to make the greatest change in my life?
  6. Who is doing something closest to my dream?
  7. What area will I like to make a positive impact?
  8. What will I like to be remembered for?
  9. What mind-blowing accomplishment will I want my name to be associated with?
  10. What do I do best with the least effort?
  11. What kind of help do people frequently ask from me?
  12. What is that area people show me the greatest respect?
  13. What can I do for fun and still earn money?
  14. What irritates me the most when it is poorly done?
  15. I usually lose track of time when ……………………
  16. Which of all the human needs touches my heart most?
  17. I am the solution, what is the problem?
  18. Who has this problem?
  19. Which books, magazines or discussions interest me the most?

If you can consciously and truthfully answer the questions above, you will discover your potentials and know exactly who you are. With this, you will have succeeded in giving meaning to your life, even if you had no clue before.

There is no limitation to what you can achieve in life when your mission is defined. When meaning is given to your life, then there is always a chance to start over. When you have failed on any project, it is your mission in life that will empower you to believe that you can start all over again.

How to Achieve Success

Secrets to Success

How do you achieve success?

Albert Einstein said, “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”

There is no such thing as failure.  Two words that should not be part of your vocabulary are, “I failed.”  You have never failed if you learned a lesson from something.  The best things that we can ever hope to accomplish are all trial and error.  We just have to learn to look at things differently.

Meaning of Success

Success means different things for different people. It all depends on your goals and what you hope to achieve. Your goals change throughout your life. So will your ideas of success.

Here are some tips to help you stay on track:

  1. Think of your mistakes as learning in progress.
  2. Step outside of yourself and clearly assess what your skill level is and decide what you are capable of as an individual.  This is an invaluable skill to have.
  3. Correctly assess what your goal, once you look at your situation and decide what your skill set is, you will be better able to judge what your goal is and how attainable.
  4. Align your thinking with your goals.  Doubt and fear are incredibly powerful inhibitors.  Mixed with lack of clarity and misguided vision your goal is impossible.  Aligning your thoughts and goals is crucial to your success.
  5. Align your actions with your goals.  If you are not where you would like to be yet, you must formulate an action plan that will get you where you want to be.
  6. Align your environment with your goals.  The next time you are around family and friends tell them your goal and what it is you would like to do.
  7. Do not give up!  The importance of persistence is overlooked in society today.  We expect things to come to us too fast too soon and if it doesn’t we just give up.

You never know how close you are to succeeding.  You only know what you have done so far to get to where you are at.  Your goals, your hopes and your dreams could be just an hour away.  You will never know if you give in too soon.

Take a look at the list and then take a look at your life.  Focus on the things that must be changed to accomplish what you want and then take action to meet them.

4 Key Steps To Success

These 4 key steps to success will give you clarity, focus, and direction you need for creating success in all areas of your life!

  1. Identify your values.  Values are those things that are important to us.  When we clearly find your values we become conscious of what is important to us.  Then we can align our actions and intentions with whats really important to us.  When our values are clear, our decisions are easy, and our direction is focused.
  2. Clarify your goals.  When it comes to achieving your goals, failure most often happens when you have not clearly defined what it is you truly want.  Identify what you want in each area of your life.  It is important to remember to be sure your goals are your own and not your mothers or spouses.
  3. Identify and dismantle your stoppers.  What is it that keeps you “stuck?”  Procrastination?  Fear?  A lack of time or money?  Brainstorm as many reasons that you can for not achieving your dreams.  Once you find your stoppers, it is important to dismantle them by accepting responsibility and moving past them.
  4. Take action.  Finally, take action today!  Without taking action you will not achieve your goals.  Take action everyday no matter how small the steps may seem.  Remember success is never an accident.

Take full responsibility for your future today by engaging in small steps to success.
