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 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.

What is Self-Improvement?

Self-Improvement is a journey into our fears, our hopes, and our habitual patterns of thinking and behaving that keeps us from true success in our personal and professional lives.

What keeps us from success?

What keeps you from being the person you want to be?

  • Do you feel stressed out and overworked?
  • Do you wish you had more time and energy?
  • Do you wish you could make money doing what you love?
  • Do you lack organization?
  • Do you want to improve relationships?
  • Do you want to transcend negativity and self-defeat?
  • Do you want to get back on track and pursue the life you really want?

The path to success.

The journey to personal success is not always easy.

Personal Development involves addressing areas of our lives that we had rather turn a blind eye to.  It involves letting go of unproductive behavior and toxic relationships and moving towards new routines and healthy relationships.  It requires determination.  Determination to be completely honest with ourselves and others, no matter how painful.

Conscious commitment to self-improvement is the ingredient that allows us to move past self-defeating tactics and take decisive action.

What action do I take?

Here is what you have to learn:

  • Define your vision of success.
  • Streamline your potential.
  • Maximize your resources.
  • Conquer fear and procrastination.
  • Create action plan.
  • Eliminate negative thinking and self-sabotage.
  • Avoid common success mistakes.

Remember, it is all up to you and no one else.  You can do it.

Top 20 Personal Development Truths

Sometimes we look for success in all the wrong places.  Maybe, we even try to achieve it in all the wrong ways.  Everyone wants to be the best they can be.

Here are 20 Personal Development Truths, though sometimes inconvenient, to help us stay on track:

  1. Attaining knowledge doesn’t mean that you are growing.  Growing happens when what you know changes how you live.
  2. If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.
  3. A good idea without action is really nothing at all.
  4. Tough times don’t last but tough people do.
  5. What we don’t start today won’t be finished by tomorrow.
  6. Having a plan even if it’s flawed is better than not having one at all.
  7. No matter what your career is or who you think you work for, you work for only one person and that is you.  So, what is it that your selling and to whom?
  8. We all have the ability to clear negativity from our minds with one single thought.
  9. Being busy and being productive are two entirely different things.
  10. Being successful is a journey, not a destination.
  11. Being great doesn’ t mean you have to dominate others.  It means you have to dominate your potential.
  12. Your success isn’t just about you.  It’s about how you positively impact those around you.
  13. Life isn’t always logical.
  14. There is a lesson in everything you do, and learning the lesson is how you move forward.
  15. It’s usually only as good or bad as you think it is.
  16. When your caught up in the moment and your emotions are soaring, you will make poor decisions.
  17. You can raise the bar, or you can wait for others to raise it.  Either way, it’s getting raised.
  18. Trying to be someone you’re not isn’t sexy.  Be yourself.  That is when you are beautiful.
  19. When kids grow up wanting to be like you, you matter.
  20. Sometimes you have to do your own thing your own way.  No matter what anyone else thinks or says about you.

And remember, simplicity is often a major factor in success.  But, the process of simplifying things is rarely easy.  As long as you be true to yourself, and never stop learning, you will not get old.  You will turn newer instead.

If you have any other inconvienent truths about Personal Develpment, I would love for you to share them with me.  We can all learn something from each other.
