Words to inspire the belief that we have all we need to be the change we wish to see.

You’ve done too little

Inspirational speaker Alexander den Heijer said, “You often feel tired not because you’ve done too much, but because you’ve done too little of what sparks a light in you.” Continue reading

What do I believe that is limiting me?

I was listening to psychologist and meditation teacher Tara Brach on the Tim Ferriss podcast the other day.  She asked, “What do I believe that is limiting me?”  Do I, like many others, suffer from imposter syndrome?  Do I think I’m not smart enough, thin enough, friendly enough, organized enough?  Do I think I’m bad at presentations or networking or making money?   Continue reading

The Magic of Thinking Big

I am currently reading The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz.  In it he writes, “Your mind is a ‘thought factory.’   It’s a busy factory, producing countless thoughts in one day.”  He said that you make deposits in your thought bank constantly and these thoughts decide what your day will be like and if you will be successful. Continue reading

Bohemian Rhapsody

I recently saw the movie Bohemian Rhapsody and it was so inspirational.  Talk about following your heart, finding your gift and never giving up.  I always knew of the band Queen and Freddy Mercury, but when I look at their list of hits it’s mind boggling.

Another One Bites The Dust.  Crazy Little Thing Called Love.  Somebody To Love.  We Will Rock You.  We Are The Champions.  And of course, Bohemian Rhapsody.   Continue reading

The game of life is won and lost in the mind

The game of life is won and lost in the mind.  If someone tells you not to bother as you are not cut out for it, do you listen?  Does it affect how you see yourself?

What other people think of you is none of your business but it’s hard to live by that mantra.

Do you believe in yourself beyond reason?  Do you ask for forgiveness rather than permission?   Continue reading

The Art of Learning

I am currently reading The Art of Learning by Josh Waitzkin.  He won the national chess championships eight times starting at nine years old.  Josh writes, “It is my nature to revel in apparent chaos.  I’ve always loved thunderstorms, blizzards, hurricanes, rough seas, sharky waters.”  He feels this ability to believe in resilience through challenge is what helped him win so many tough chess matches. Continue reading

Disney World opened in Orlando

Forty-seven years ago, on October 1, 1971, Disney World opened in Orlando.

Walt Disney was turned down over 300 times for financing when he was trying to build Walt Disney World.  But he was used to rejection. Continue reading

You’re doing something wrong

I saw an anonymous meme the other day that said, “If people don’t occasionally walk away from you shaking their heads, you’re doing something wrong.”

We should all be doing something outside the box.  Blazing a trail rather than walking a well-worn path.

If you spend too much time doing what the experts recommend or what society says then you can’t make a breakthrough.   Continue reading

Daedalus and Icarus

I saw a video the other day with Seth Godin talking about the myth of Daedalus and Icarus.  Daedalus, the father, and Icarus, the son, were on an island.  Daedalus was a craftsman and he told Icarus that he had made him wings out of bird feathers and wax and that he was to listen to his father and they would fly away from the island.  He told Icarus not to fly too high as the sun’s heat would melt the wax and the wings would fall apart and he would die.  Icarus did die in the flight, but Seth Godin reminds us that the myth had another part to it that was cut out many years ago.  Daedalus also told Icarus not to fly too low because then the mist and waves from the ocean would weigh down his wings and he would surely perish. Continue reading

Tony Robbins

Of course I’ve heard of Tony Robbins.  But when I listened to him on Tim Ferriss’ podcast last night I was so inspired.  He had a challenging childhood and was raised by four different dads.  As a child, he remembers a stranger coming to his door and giving his family a meal when they were hungry.  He never forgot that man.  It showed him that strangers cared.  He currently feeds tens of millions of people meals each year through his programs.
