~ Inspired Thought of the Day ~

~ Inspired Action ~

I am so amazed by these words. These words of inspiration are what I live for! I am so so grateful!

The old me used to believe you either have courage or you don’t! Now my eyes are wide open and inspired by the thought that courage is just like a muscle! Your courage/muscle may be weak now but with consistent practice and use it can be strengthened! And so I shall!

 Amazing perspective especially now that I am studying health and fitness. This message has clicked into place deep down inside of me and I am so happy and empowered to strengthened the little courage I have bit by bit!

And I am even more in a state of appreciation and empowerment by Oprah’s words below.

I have always been so quick to give up. Fear has always overpowered me when I was younger and I did not understand that there was a way to build it little by little. How I wish I had someone to say to me that Courage is feeling the fear and doing it anyway. How I wish to believe I would of taken action more because of these wise words. I am grateful to have read these words now and understand them. I am grateful to feel more prepared to act even with fear knowing that doing it anyway is an act of courage.

Now I will push forward understanding that my life will expand in proportion to my courage. Because indeed my life is in a place where I believe it has shrunk and it is limited because of the fear that I’ve allowed to take over me. So much of what I envision is only possible when I act with courage! And so I will nurture this muscle of courage use by use so that it is strengthened.

~I pray you are empowered as well~

~ Today’s Inspired Thought ~

 

I am so so afraid of standing still. I am so afraid of finding myself in the same unsatisfied and unaccomplished place that I feel I am in right now. I don’t want to be in this place next year!

 

“Be not afraid of moving slowly; be afraid of standing still.” is a lifesaver. There are days where I would lose motivation and find myself at a “plateau”. These words have helped empower me to continue moving forward at my own pace. Although my pace is slow due to inconvenient circumstances; each day that I push forward only pushes me one day closer to my goal and so I refuse to stand still.

 

When you don’t hear those words above enough one tends to forget such common sense. The more I see those words, the more the meaning starts to sink in and turns from inspired thought to inspired action.

Reading that success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out has given me so much RELIEF! I feel better to think that I am on the right track moving at the pace that I am in. I do feel that I need to pick up the pace though because my level of urgency has diminished a bit due to emotional adversity. Coming to better understand that the small steps that I am taking will sum up to the success I wish to reach has fueled my passion to achieve!

 

I’ve come to realize with such clearer understanding that mistakes are not meant to make you feel inadequate and unworthy of success.

Mistakes are not opportunities for you to quit.

Mistakes are opportunities for growth and improvement.

In the past, when I made a mistake I would be so quick to respond with harsh words to myself. I didn’t need anyone to discourage me because I was my own worst critic! I got in the way of my own success with such a negative and uninspiring attitude.

It’s time to let go of the thoughts that do not make me strong.

With practice all of these inspiring words will become normal thoughts and normal actions. This is what I aspire to achieve.

~ Today’s Inspired Thought ~

With one life to live and that one life to enjoy, can you truly afford to fulfill another person’s dream instead of your own?

Especially if that profession is not part of your passion?

If the profession you have been hired into is not part of your passion, you cannot afford to sacrifice your dream for another’s.

When I speak of affordability, I don’t speak of it financially. I speak of it mentally and spiritually.

We cannot mentally and spiritually afford the growth of regret and the feeling of failure that most likely will hit us when we grow old enough to start looking back and wishing that we could of lived our life a whole lot differently.

Think of all the time and energy you have invested in your job so far that has yet to fulfill what you truly desire but it has helped fulfill the desires of your boss or CEO. (More than one vacation, personal luxuries and financial freedom.)

If you desire the reward of more than one well deserved vacation, unlimited personal luxuries and financial freedom do all you can to start off slowly and work your way up to momentum.

I am so grateful for these motivational words:

“It doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you don’t stop.”

If you can’t fulfill your dream Full time, do all you can to at least start fulfilling it part time.

1 hour a day, 3 hours a day or 5 hours a day. At the end of your days you will smile knowing that you did not give in and throughout your lifetime you have fulfilled most if not all that you have set your mind to.

With one life to live, I sincerely hope you achieve All.

~ Here is my sincerest wish for you: ~

~ Today’s Inspired Thought ~

If you think you are WORTHY to achieve, you are RIGHT.

If you think you lack and are NOT WORTHY to achieve, you are RIGHT.

Your success is determined by how you think. Your thoughts determine your actions. Your actions will always be fueled by what you believe. If you think you CAN, you will seek and act with all possibilities. If you think you CAN’T you will do little to nothing.

What are your thoughts on what you wish to achieve right now? Do you THINK you CAN or do you THINK you CAN’T?

~ Inspired Action ~

Each day that I struggle toward the life that I want to live, the more I come to realize that I can’t afford to think “I can’t” anymore.

I have come to think “I MUST”, “I HAVE TO”, “THERE IS NO OTHER OPTION”

I only have one life to achieve all that I desire.

So I MUST practice the wise words to ~ Erase my mind of Can’t. ~

I have indeed found this to be a challenge. Because within the past 20 year of my life, I have repetitively gave up on myself  and my abilities to  achieve small and great tasks that I truly had the potential to achieve. But that was the past, I no longer live there anymore.

I am of a new age and I live in a new day. My tomorrows are a clean slate and so the next 20 years of my life I wish to repetitively achieve all small and great tasks that I have in mind.

~I wish that you encounter all the strength and wisdom necessary to give you the power to Erase Your Mind Of Can’t and ACHIEVE all that you desire. ~

~ Today’s Inspired Thought ~

~Inspired Action ~

How I appreciate such wise words. My mind is awake to the thoughts of how I have allowed myself to become my own obstacle in so many ways than one. I can’t control a flat tire. I can’t control the job market. I can’t control the rain. I can’t control who lies to me. But there have been plenty of obstacles that I could of prevented from coming my way.

Now I ask myself “How am you getting in my own way right now?”

I am now fully aware that there are a limitless supply of life obstacles that will come our way, obstacles that we just can’t see coming. So I should not make room for obstacles that I can prevent and control. Obstacles that come from me procrastinating. Obstacles that come from me miscommunicating. Obstacles that come from me being stubborn or careless.

I need to save myself the time and trouble and just stay ready for the ones that are least expected.

~ Yesterday’s Inspired Thought ~

Two great questions!
What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
What would you do if you weren’t afraid?

I would do Any and All inspired thoughts that have come to mind. I want to achieve Any and ALL inspired thoughts, dreams and visions with no fear!

This needs to be my daily mantra. I want these words to be a natural thought. Can you see how much you can accomplish in life if this was a deeply instilled natural thought?

Go For It!

Believe it! Good things do indeed happen when you GO FOR IT!
If you fail in the experience, you have been blessed with awareness and the opportunity to improve and if you achieve in the experience you have been blessed with renewed confidence, awareness and experience.

 No more hesitating!

There is so much truth behind these words. Many of us hesitate and hold back from taking action because we want our actions to be perfect. But that urge perfection can lead to procrastination and can lead to the loss of a great opportunity. Getting it DONE is so much better than Perfect!

It’s time to let go of the fear of being perfect and just DO IT!

~Today’s Inspired Thought~

This is the reason why I am getting more comfortable living life as a single woman right now ♥

Because I love myself enough to see that “being single doesn’t mean that [I] know nothing about love. [But that] sometimes, being solo is wiser than being in a false relationship.

For the past 10 years I have placed myself in one false relationship to another. Due to my own false definitions of love. I was so in love with love that I blinded myself from the truth!

Just because he finds you physically attractive and you find him physically attractive does not guarantee that it is love. Just because you talk or text everyday does not guarantee that it is love. 

You “love” the fact that he is attractive and you “love” the fact that you can talk everyday but that doesn’t mean it’s True Love!

 It is the experience that I loved! The experience that he looks better, talks better, and acts better than the last guy or men you’ve dated in the past but that does NOT guarantee that it is True LOVE.

I can’t afford another false relationship anymore. I have cried enough tears and suffered enough from low esteem and doubts of my own abilities. I take full responsible for putting my soul in so much emotional turmoil because I kept choosing Mr. Wrong.  I’ve spent too much time with Mr. Wrong  and hindered possibly many opportunities for me to cross paths with Mr. Right.

Thank you God, for the person who has shared both of these wise words today because I needed them today, yesterday and the day before that especially! I have been fighting temptation the past few days. I have visited his facebook page playing tug of war with the thought To write?! or Not to write?! 

These words were God Sent! I am grateful to my facebook friend for sharing both of these quotes! I’ve deleted my ex’s phone number month’s ago and the only thing that is keeping me from writing to him on facebook is considering the fact that he could be Mr. Wrong and if I go back to him I will never find Mr. Right.

And with one life to live, I can’t afford that!

I fully recognize that my desire to write to him is fueled by the disappoinment and regret that our relationship did not work just like the ones before him.  And my heart is sinking right now after writing those words ….just like the ones before him…I hate how I have to add him to my talli of failed relationships!

But once again I can’t afford to never find Mr. Right if I can’t let go of Mr. Wrong!

I have found strength today to continue to learn to live in love with myself and allow Mr. Right to come on God’s Time. I believe that as long as I keep my steps aligned with God and stay aligned to my line of positive purpose we will cross paths. ~♥~ ♥~ It is inevitable ~♥~ ♥~

~May True Love find you when you least expect it. May True Love find you as such a pleasant surprise.~

“It is better to prepare for an opportunity and not have one then to have an opportunity and not be prepared” – Les Brown

Les Brown’s wise words supports the saying:

“Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance.”

It will always be better to prepare for an opportunity in ADVANCE than to find one knocking at your door and not be prepared! It would save us all from kicking ourselves and saying “I woulda coulda shoulda!”

These quotes supports the reason why we should always continue our education or even to simply have extra business cards handy!

It has become so much more clearer now that I should do whatever it is needed and more to stay a few steps ahead of opportunity because it doesn’t always come on my watch. There is a high chance that it will come when we least expect it!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How has proper preparation prevents poor performance worked for you in your life? I’d love to hear your story and be REinspired!

“Often, out of our greatest rejection comes our greatest direction.” – Joel Osteen

“Every struggle in your life has shaped you into the person you are today. Be thankful for the hard times; they can only make you stronger.” – Unknown

“Your problems aren’t there to decrease you, their there to increase you.” – Joel Osteen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Often, out of our greatest rejection comes our greatest direction.” – Joel Osteen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The more I read those words; The more I welcome rejection/adversity with open arms (even when it hurts so DEEP inside! SO DEEP that it brings me tears!) Oi! My chest just tightened up inside just thinking of the current obstacle that has come my way and the fear that I may not overcome it! :(.

But I now understand that rejection/failure is a great lesson towards success and a broken heart is a great lesson towards true love. ❤ ❤ ❤
So I will push forward and search for direction when rough times come my way. #inspiredaction

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is even more encouraging to read that

“Your problems aren’t there to decrease you, their there to increase you.” – Joel Osteen

Your knowledge/awareness is increased, your abilities are increased, you courage is increased when you learn the lessons that come along with the problems!

So adversity is not there to knock you down but there to educate you to push me forward and also prevent such adversity from happening again! Even if we face the same level of  adversity that tried to knock us down again, we are properly prepared to face it and use the strength we gained from the previous experience to confront it!

And!
