5 truly inspirational quotes

Truly Inspirational QuotesWe can all use a little inspiration occasionally, I’m sure you’ll agree dear reader. So here are what I beleive to be 5 truly inspirational quotes.

Truly Inspirational Quotes:

Before you speak ask yourself if what you are going to say is true, is kind, is necessary, is helpful. If the answer is no, maybe what you are about to say should be left unsaid. ~Bernard Meltzer

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved. ~Helen Keller

In a president, character is everything. A president doesn’t have to be brilliant. He doesn’t have to be clever; you can hire clever. You can hire pragmatic, and you can buy and bring in policy wonks. But you can’t buy courage and decency. You can’t rent a strong moral sense. A president must bring those things with him. He needs to have, in that much maligned word, but a good one nonetheless, a vision of the future he wishes to create. But a vision is worth little if a president doesn’t have the character – the courage and heart – to see it through.  ~Peggy Noonan

If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down, but the staying down. ~Mary Pickford

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them and every day begin the task anew. ~Saint Francis de Sales

Success Secrets: How your life can be better than it is now

Success SecretsHow is life for you? Perhaps you’re lucky and you have a great job, a nice house, a fancy car, a loving family and a lifestyle which is the envy of your neighbours? If that is you then well done but there’s nothing for you here. If you’ve achieved all that then you don’t need any success secrets from me.

If it is you then I must tell you, you’re in a minority. However I’m guessing you’re not part of that minority? Am I right? Statistically you’re much more likely to be a member of life’s majority. Those people with a desire for their lives to be better but who for whatever reason cannot translate that desire into something that is better.

Statistically you’re more likely to be part of that group of people constantly on the lookout for success secrets. People in search of enlightenment if you like. You’re not alone of course but I hope this post will help you.

Why is it that some people are successful and others are not? What secrets do the successful know that the unsuccessful do not know? Can anyone be successful? The simple answer is yes.

However unsuccessful people tend to think it’s not possible, so they don’t try. They just accept what they’re given as if that’s all they can expect from life. It’s almost as if they say to themselves, this is all life has for me. It’s like they believe that there are no success secrets.

Well I must tell you now, if it’s not obvious to you, life can be better. Life if what you make it. Within reason, you can be whatever you want to be. You can have more. Other people do, so why not you?

Where you are is where you are. It doesn’t really matter. What matters is that you don’t have to remain where you are. You’re not a tree, you can move. You can change. You can decide that your life will be different. And you can work towards something that is better.

Your life really can be better than it is and you can be better than you are. However for it to be better you have to believe it can be better and you have to believe that you can turn it around. In fact you have to believe in success secrets.

One thing all successful people have in common is a belief that something different can happen and they can make it happen. They don’t allow anyone to tell them it can’t be done. They know what they want and they’re determined to get it.

Some might consider them delusional but successful people see it as self-belief. They won’t accept that they cannot do something because intuitively they know, if they try hard enough, then anything is possible. If they decide what they want and strive for what they want they know they can get it. The price is determination and hard work but they’re willing to pay that price.

Successful people know that when faced with an elephant you cannot swallow it whole. However you can eat it one bite at a time. If you’re building a wall then you don’t start with the entire wall. You start with a single brick and you get that right. Then once that’s securely in place you move on to the next brick and then the next and the next and so on. Pretty soon if you stick at it long enough you’ll have the whole wall.

Successful people know that they can’t get to where they want to go in one single leap. They know you get there gradually one step at a time. And if you want to be successful, it starts with taking the first step.

Readers familiar with Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) will know that if you want to be successful you look for successful people, identify what they do and then copy that model. The idea being that if it worked for them then there’s a good chance it will work for you too. Most successful people will have had role models they’ve copied at various times.

So if you want to be successful look around for successful people and listen to what they have to say. Most people would accept that Will Smith is successful. In the video included here he shares his thoughts on the secrets of success.

His observations are interesting and well worth a few minutes of your time. I can recommend them to you.

Further Reading:

An article of this type can only ever be a taster on the subject but there are plenty of good books which will enlighten you further on the subject of success secrets. For instance one I suggest you explore is:-

The 21 Success Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires: How to Achieve Financial Independence Faster and Easier Than You Ever Thought Possible (The Laws of Success Series) by Brian Tracy

It all depends on how you define success of course. However if for you success is all about achieving financial independence as fast and easy as possible then this book could be for you.

Remember it’s never easy. It requires hard work and determination. However whilst it’s not easy, it can be easier and this book will tell you how. You can explore it by clicking in the link.

How to become a real success?

How to become a real success? That’s a question most people struggle to answer, frequently. If becoming a success was easy then everyone would be doing well.

Sadly life’s not like that, however much we would like it to be.

Success requires hard work and a determination to keep going after each and every setback, and there’ll always be setbacks for everyone. No one’s life is plain sailing all the time.

So where do we start, if success is our aim? Well let me tell you right now. It all starts with being very good at what you do.

If you’re very good at what you do then you’ll get noticed, maybe not immediately but eventually. And when you get noticed you’ll get your chance to show what you can really do.

Just keep performing consistently at a high level and people will not be able to ignore you for too long.

Really good people are hard to find. So business leaders and talent spotters are always on the lookout for genuine talent that is motivated and keen to add real value.

However merely being good at what you do is not enough in itself. You must be ready constantly to seize every opportunity to get noticed by the right people.

If you’re working hard and honing your skills, one day someone significant within your company will say to you, “Could you do this for me please?” That is the point at which opportunity is really knocking. Visibility with the right people matters.

So grab the opportunity to show them what you can really do.

If you embrace the task you’re requested to do then you’ll be on your way down that road that will lead to success, if you play your cards right.

And remember; success is a game and it’s a game you should play to win.

Remember this also; plenty of people can deliver an exceptional result occasionally. It’s the people who can do it regularly and consistently to the highest level who are really special.

With commitment and the right attitude you can be such a person

How to stop worrying and start Living

How to stop worryingWe all tend to worry a bit more than we should.

Worrying is natural but it is rarely helpful. It just adds to our stress levels. And what’s the worst thing that can happen anyway?

And even if it does happen would worrying have stopped it happening?

Life’s too short to stress ourselves out with worry.

The question is, how do we stop ourselves worrying? Well consider this idea.

Dale Carnegie’s book How to Stop Worrying and Start Living is a very useful guide. This book is a great personal development text and it’s well worth reading. I can strongly recommend it to you.

How to stop worrying:

However until you have the chance to read it this animated video provides a useful summary of the key ideas in the book.

So I can recommend you watch this video now and then read the book whenever you get the chance.

Further reading:

Readers serious about their own personal development will be keen to establish their own small library of motivational resources I’m sure.

Dale Carnegie’s book would be an essential addition to any personal development library and it can be purchased HERE.

Check it out now whilst it’s fresh in your mind.

How to get motivated and achieve big things

How to get motivated and achieve big things is a common question I’m asked. Coming up with ideas is easy, getting motivated can be much harder.

Do you have a problem getting motivated? You know what you’d like to do but you just can’t seem to get going?

Many people feel this way and, if I’m honest, I can be like that too. So whenever I struggle to get going, I like to watch a motivational video or listen to a motivational podcast or audio book.

When I need a little push I listen to people who inspire me. People like Jim Rohn, Tony Robbins and Brian Tracy.

And here’s another inspiring speaker from TEDxVirginiaTech. In this video Scott Geller talks about the psychology of self-motivation. I found this very useful and I hope you will too.  Certainly it’s worth your time to listen to it.

How is success achieved? Could this be the secret?

How is success achievedHow is success achieved? Certainly many desire it but few really achieve it. Why is that do you think dear reader?

Could it be all about your mindset? Can your thinking have an impact on whether you succeed or not?

Well in the embedded video, Carrie Green suggests that your mindset really does matter.

Programming your mind for success:

This is an inspirational talk on the subject of success from Ms Carrie Green given at TEDxManchester.

Her underlying message is that success is never achieved by accident.

Success is in fact achieved by knowing what you want, knowing why you want it and then programming your mind to drive you towards your goal.

I’d not heard Carrie Green speak before I stumbled on this video but I must say I’m very impressed.

If you can spare a few minutes then this video is well worth a little piece of your time. I’m confident that you won’t be disappointed. Recommended.

How to improve your life quality and enjoy what you don’t have now

How to improve your life qualityHow to improve your life quality? That’s a question we all ask ourselves when life does not quite meet our expectations.

Embarrassed by circumstances:

Have you ever been embarrassed by your limited circumstances?

All your friends were going on a night out perhaps but you couldn’t join them because you simply didn’t have the money, perhaps?

You really wanted to join them of course but wealth and financial freedom were nothing but a distant dream for you then.

Maybe you’ve not had that particular experience but something similar, possibly? The actual situation for you may have been different but your sense of embarrassment will not have been any less painful and hard to bear I’m sure.

In one of his audio programs, Jim Rohn tells a story about an event that drove him to take a very close look at his life.

Apparently a Girl Scout called at Jim’s house one day selling Girl Scout Cookies as part of an annual fund raiser. In exchange for the cookies all she asked for was just two dollars.

This was many years ago of course but even then this was not a huge sum of money.

However Jim’s problem at the time was that he didn’t even have two dollars to spare, so he was reduced to lying to the poor girl. At this point wealth was something Jim had yet to encounter.

Money does matter:

Now some people will tell you that money doesn’t matter but it does. In our world today you can no more live without money than you can live without oxygen.

Exactly how much money you need depends on your preferred lifestyle of course. If you don’t want much out of life then you’ll get by on very little money.

However most of us do want more out of life hence having at least a degree of wealth does matter.

Wealth and financial freedom:

Put simply, wealth means financial freedom.

Financial freedom in turn means you being able to do what you want whenever you want and not feeling constrained by your circumstances.

A worthy aim therefore is to decide what you want out of life and then start working towards building your own wealth.

It all starts with change:

Have you ever thought to yourself, I don’t want to live like this anymore?

Perhaps you said to yourself, I want more out of life?

You want more but the problem is you have no idea how to change your circumstances, right? It you’re in need of a little help then don’t worry dear reader, you’re not alone.

However one thing you must accept, unless you change nothing will change.

You must increase your value:

Perhaps you look at your salary each month and think how can I start building wealth when this is all the company pays?

If that’s how you think then you’ll need to change your philosophy or the way you look at things.

The salary you get maybe all the company pays you but it’s for the value of the contribution you make. There will be other people who are paid a lot more than you. They’re paid more than you quite simply because they’re considered to be more valuable than you.

I’m not suggesting that you’re not valuable. You are; as a father, a mother, a brother, a sister, a friend or even a colleague.

However my point reflects your economic value to your employer.

It’s a fact that if you’re in a low skilled job where there’s an over-supply of potential replacements for your services then you won’t earn much. That’s simply the economics of supply and demand.

However just because you’re not more valuable now doesn’t mean you couldn’t become more valuable.

You can increase your skills with a little effort on your part and you can become more valuable. Become more valuable and your income will rise.

So whilst your circumstances may be limited right now they don’t have to remain that way.

You can work on yourself; improve yourself. It’s all about self-improvement and personal development.

Success can be yours:

Success doesn’t just happen to people. No one just gets lucky.

If you asked the CEO of say Microsoft how he got to where he is, his response is unlikely to be, “Well I just showed up for work each day and they just kept promoting me.

No, he’ll have worked very hard to get to his lofty position in life. You don’t get anywhere without hard work.

However you attract success by the person you become and you can become more than you are now.

Jim Rohn suggests that profits are better than wages and he has a point.

Every rags-to-riches story I’ve ever heard always involves someone’s own business. They started their own business, worked very hard and one day they became very rich.

Build a business:

Now you’re probably thinking, I don’t have the money to start my own business and I can’t afford to give up my job on a whim.

That’s all true I’m sure but some people keep their job initially and start their own business as a part-time enterprise.

Jim Rohn himself built his success that way.

Jim began life in modest circumstances but he went on to become a millionaire and one of the most influential thinkers of our time. And in case you’re wondering, no he didn’t go to university.

It can be done; people do and you can too.

Just make up your mind to start working on yourself.

Increase your value and look for opportunities to solve problems for people. Solving problems is the basis of business. Every product should solve a problem for consumers.

The psychology of wealth:

There’s a psychology linked to the building wealth and you would be wise to understand it.

In the embedded video included here, Jim Rohn explains the psychology of wealth and provides a lot of sensible advice.

Jim was a successful man and it’s always worth listening to people who’ve achieved success. They know what they’re talking about because they’ve been there and done it.

He offers simple messages that are thought-provoking and powerful.

This video is well worth your time and I recommend it to you. Watch it now whilst you have the chance.

Recommendations for your personal library:

Personally, I think Jim Rohn is one of the best motivational speakers I’ve ever heard and he’s been a big influence on me, that’s for sure.

He’s produced many books, videos and audio programs over the years and all of them would add real value to your own personal library.

Two I can strongly recommend you add to your personal reference library are:-

Book: Seven Strategies for Wealth & Happiness by Jim Rohn

Audio Program: The Art of Exceptional Living by Jim Rohn

I purchased both of these some time ago and I still use them constantly as sources of inspiration and motivation.

The audio program is particularly useful as I listen to it whilst driving. This means I can use my travel time profitably. Why listen to the radio when you could be listening and learning whilst you drive?

Purchasing these items represents money well spent for me and I’ve found them enormously useful and I strongly recommend them to you.

Click on the links and check them out.

Even if you don’t buy them they’re certainly worth considering. Go on check them out right now whilst it’s fresh in your mind.

Should you make a purchase, you will not regret buying them, of that I’m very confident.

How to find and do work you love

How to find and do work you loveHow to find and do work you love? A great question for all you very intelligent readers to contemplate today.

Now not everyone will find the answer of course but most people frequently ask this question in my experience.

Job satisfaction:

How many people would say they get job satisfaction from their work, in percentage terms?

Apparently it’s only around 20%.

That would suggest that 80% of all people hate their jobs.

If true, I think that matters and it’s especially relevant to society if you think about it. Why?

Quite simply because it suggests that most people will not be quite as productive as they might otherwise be. Let’s face it, you can’t really be at your most productive if you’re not happy in your job.

A sense of purpose:

So dear reader, which side are you on?

Does your work place you in the 20% who enjoy job satisfaction or are you one of the 80%?

Eseentially job satisfaction comes as a result of doing work which gives us a sense of purpose.

If we have a genuine sense of purpose, we’ll have a strong desire to do our work well. And we can only do it to the best of our ability if it really matters to us.

Doing our work well matters because that’s how we make a difference.

Hence that’s how we make a contribution and leave a legacy behind us. So in that sense job satisfaction certainly matters.

Consider your work:

Does your work really matter to you?

Does it give you a sense of purpose or is it simply the means for paying your bills? Do you get out of bed each morning looking forward to the day ahead?

No job is ever perfect but, given work takes up a third of our lives, it’s essential that we enjoy what we do and derive at least some job satisfaction from it.

Maybe there’ll be some elements of a given job we dislike but mostly we should enjoy our work because that way we’re better placed to do it well.

In the inspirational TEDx Talk video embedded below, Scott Dinsmore explains how in the early part of his career he was encouraged to do any job just to build up his resumé.

However he very quickly realized that this approach was unwise and resulted in no job satisfaction.

He makes his point with an excellent quote from Warren Buffett who said, “Taking any job just to build your resumé is like putting off sex until your old age.”

Now why would that make sense?

Experience is important of course but work should not just be about building your resumé.

Work should be about adding value and making a meaningful contribution to society.

It should be about using your skills and natural talent to make a difference to the lives of others.

So if success is your aim then the work you do must matter to you.

If you find work you enjoy then job satisfaction will follow.

Put simply, if you like the work you do you’ll do it well. And if you do it well people will notice. And once people begin to notice you then you’re on your way to achieving success.

Knowledge required:

The trick is to find work that you can’t not do.

Something you’d happily do for nothing if you couldn’t find someone to pay you to do it.

That’s the basis for real job satisfaction.

All of this is more easily said than done of course.

Perhaps you’ve no idea about what matters to you in terms of work?

If you’re relatively young and new to the world of work how could you possibly know? In that case you need to start improving your basic knowledge and awareness.

Know yourself:

A good starting point for improving your knowledge is becoming a self-expert. Knowing just what you have in your arsenal.

  • What are your unique strengths?
  • What are your weaknesses?
  • What fills you with enthusiasm?
  • What fills you with dread?
  • What do you love to do?
  • What do you hate doing?

If I asked someone you knew well to tell me what you’re good at what would they say?

  • For what activity do they regard you as the ‘go to’ person?
  • What do they regularly thank you for?
  • What would you do for fun if you couldn’t do it for a living?
  • On what activity can you lose yourself for hours at a time?

By answering these questions and others like them you’ll get a better idea of what you’re looking for. And let’s face it, if you don’t know what you’re looking for you’ll never find it.

Know your values:

What do you regard as your set of values? What moral framework matters to you when you’re making decisions?

What would you not do simply because you wouldn’t want to disappoint your family? What would make you feel proud if you were to tell your family that’s what you’re doing?

Anything you choose to do should be congruent with your own set of values.

Know your experiences:

The most powerful lessons in life come from the mistakes we make. The lessons we learn from our own mistakes and the things we’ve done are collectively known as experience. And experience is a valuable commodity.

Pay attention to your experience. Think about the things you’ve done right. Think about the things you’ve done wrong.

When have you felt completely in control of a situation regardless of the challenges you face?

When have you felt completely out of your depth?

Think about the things you’ve enjoyed doing. Think about those activities you really hated.

Know what matters to you:

In crude but simple language the underlying question here is, “What is it that you actually DO ‘give a shit’ about?

We tend to do stuff because other people suggest it’s what we should be doing. However it really should be about what actually matters to us.

Identify what it is that makes you come alive and makes you feel energized.

John Lennon’s Aunt Mimi famously said, “Playing the guitar is all very well John but you’ll never make a living at it.

Fortunately John didn’t listen to her and his guitar helped him to make a very lucrative living because he really enjoyed writing songs and playing music.

In fact his creative output continues to generate millions of dollars for his estate almost 40 years after his death.

John Lennon did well because he did something he enjoyed doing and he didn’t allow himself to be influenced by those who thought he should pursue a different line of work.

Confidence compounds:

By working to your strengths your confidence will grow.

Each success you have will improve your confidence. And as your confidence grows, one success will lead to another. It’s a virtuous circle.

Environment matters too:

Jim Rohn once said, “You’re the average of the five people you spend most time with.

Personally I think this is true.

The people around you really do matter.

They influence you and their attitude rubs off on you.

Human beings are social animals and we exist within groups. We also have to fit into the group otherwise we’re very quickly ostracized by other group members.

Hang around with people who inspire possibility. People who lift you up and not pull you down. Mix with people who will influence you in a positive way. Find role models from whom you can learn.

How to find and do work you love:

Scott Dinsmore’s mission is to change the world by helping people find what excites them and build a career around the work only they are capable of doing.

If you can find the work you are compelled to do then you can add real value to your fellow human beings.

Discover what you’re really meant to do and you’ll be on to a winner.

You’ll also get maximum job satisfaction.

Therefore in conclusion, if you’ve yet to find what you’re looking for then keep looking until you do.

In the meantime I recommend that you watch the video. It is though-provoking and compelling and it will be a good use of your time.

Recommended Reading:

There are plenty of good books that will help you identify your true strengths, as well as help you home-in on the work you should be doing.

In the video Scott Dinsmore suggests Strengths Finder 2.0 by Tom Rath as a good book to help you in your quest.

Certainly it is worthy of your time, it’s very useful and I have a copy of it in my own personal reference library.

However allow me to recommend another three excellent texts you might also consider. They are as follows:-

Who Do You Think You Are?: Understanding Your Motives and Maximizing Your Abilities by Nick Isbister and Martin Robinson

The Pathfinder: How to Choose or Change Your Career for a Lifetime of Satisfaction and Success by Nicholas Lore

Find what you were born for: Discover your strengths, forge your own path and live the life you want by Zoe McKey

I have all of these books in my personal library and I’ve found them all extremely useful and helpful and I use them as reference texts all the time.

You can check them out by clicking on the links.

I strongly recommend you take a closer look at them all. You won’t regret it if you do decide to buy your own copies. Check them out now whilst it’s all fresh in your mind.
