How to be Delighted with Yourself

This is your life, no one else's. You can decide your direction. You are the leader of your life. Always pay yourself first in all you do, make sure the future you would thank you for spending what you save. Other people are there for your guidance, some will show you what to do and others what not to do. Observe them well, but never judge them as there is no benefit in that. Take what you learn and test it, avoid assuming it to be right. Treat others as you wish them to treat you. Other people deserve to…

Get Focused for Greater Success

It is difficult to accomplish much in life without focus and determination. The factor that focus plays in success is easy to overlook. But people who have achieved what it is that they want to in life will be quick to tell you just how important focus is for achieving success. Luck often plays a role in success. While it is true that successful people make their own luck, to an extent, this does not negate hard work, determination and focus. The facts are simple; without the benefit of focus, determination and hard work are impossible. After all, to work…

3 Important Actions for an Awesome Life

You can have an awesome life no matter where you start; you just have to believe and do your part. No circumstance determines your result. It took me a long time to learn that, but now it’s as much a part of me as my DNA. Growing up in a physically and emotionally damaging environment, and spending the majority of my time alone, I arrived at adulthood a very lonely, socially inept, financially challenged person with low confidence and almost no professional or personal skills. The person I am today, after years of development, is a stark contrast to the…

5 Tips to Improve Your Life

#1: A lack of empathy creates most of the world’s problems. When you have empathy for yourself, you’re able to have it for other people. Without empathy, we become products of violence, addiction, deceit, disease, and heartbreak. Everything in life is about relationships – your relationship with yourself, others, and a higher power. The healing and nurturing you do with yourself (often with the help of a trained professional) directly reflects the love you give and receive from others. #2: You create your own reality. If you can see it in your mind, you can create it in physical reality!…

Listen To Your Inner Voice

Do you hear something inside? Your inner voice may be speaking. Your special inner voice is like a feeling, sense, or a knowing trying to guide you to choices that are in your best interest. It urges and prods you to do or not do something, haunting you like a ghost in your heart until you heed its prompting. Sometimes, you may not be sure whether you’re sensing your true inner voice or whether you’re sensing your own emotions, logic, or other internal interferences. You may even feel torn between your own preferences and your inner voice. Finding your inner…

Trust The Open Space

Trust the open space. Trust the gaping void that opens, threatening to swallow you into its nothingness, when you say "No" to people or things you know aren’t right for you. Beautiful things will sprout when you say "No". Beautiful seeds will descend from the sky, and sprout in that open space. More beautiful than you could have planned. Sooner than you think. The darkness that surrounds you now—that whispers its threats to expand voraciously if you open up even an inch of space—will ebb away as you open that space, and choose to sit calmly, patiently in it. All…

Go Make Pies

All of life comes to me with ease, joy and glory. What I have learned is that we are all infinite beings with infinite power, abilities and access to infinite amounts of love. Look at nature and see how abundant it is, with plants, trees, birds, flies, animals abound. The same amount of abundance is available to each and every one of us. We are all infinite beings, we are equal, not better than, not worse than, but we all still have a unique essence (flavor). As an individual, you matter. You add something to the mix called life that…

Nurture Your Dreams

This inspiration is a bit different in that it was written by me from an interview with Cirque du Soleil founder and CEO, Guy Laliberté, while he was at the cosmonaut training facility in Star City, Russia. Guy was heading to the International Space Station for two weeks and entered quarantine the day after our interview. You really should listen to our interview- I believe it's one of the best we've ever featured. Below is the inspiration that Guy shared with me, paraphrased just a bit. Enjoy! Hugs, Gail Lynne Goodwin, Ambassador of Inspiration for InspireMeToday.com When I came up…

Through God All Things Are Possible

Believe it or not, God loves you forever and always and can never depart from you, because you are an expression of it! THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FACT TO UNDERSTAND AND BELIEVE IN ORDER TO EXPERIENCE THE LOVING MAGNIFICENCE OF THIS UNIVERSE. All suffering is a result of believing that you are separate from God; which is impossible, since God is your very source. God is a mysterious loving, creative energy that exists everywhere, without exception, including in and around you. God is all good. You are forgiven. You are an on-purpose creation and extension of Source (God). You…

How to Leave Behind a Worthwhile Impression

My daily choices surround themselves around the fact that my life affects much more than just me. The decisions I make, even one as simple as not listening to my alarm, influences those around me. If, for example, I wake up late, not only am I late but I inconvenience my husband, the staff at the daycare, and my fellow co-workers who expected a meeting to start at 8:00, not 8:15. So I guess what it boils down to is: Be aware of how your actions and choices affect others. One of the difficulties of having a family in today’s…

The New CEO of Your Destiny

You're the CEO of Your Destiny. I spent a lot of time waiting. I waited for my career to get me more prestige. I waited for more money. I waited for job security to keep me happy. I waited for Human Resources to give me even more training to equip me with more. One day, I fired whoever had been in charge of my life up until that point, and I hired a new CEO. Me. This wasn't easy. You see, the old CEO had also hired an Inner Critic. (I learned about such things from a book called Self Esteem,…

Love is the Only Answer

If I only had one word to describe and answer the questions I have posed to myself since I have been a little girl, the word would be Love. I would wish people were able to reach out to one another, to share, to cooperate, and to serve, realizing there is nothing to lose by being open-hearted, generous and fearless. There are only two emotions - love and fear - that determine our success and our joy in life. If one chooses love, there can be no fear because that person is willing to risk being different, unique, and to…

Making Your Dream A Success

Every person has something special on the inside of them that is just waiting to be shared with the world. That special internal something is wrapped up in our individually unique, gifts, talent and abilities but is locked away within us. What makes our distinguishing attributes so awesome is that no other person in the world can demonstrate those qualities quite like we can. Just think for a moment, that no two human beings have the same finger prints, not even identical twins. So this means that there is something in us that adds and makes a significant contribution to…

Who Do You Think You Are?

"Who do you think you are?" This wasn't so much a question as a challenge I heard throughout my early life. It came from a lot of different people. It stopped me dead in my tracks, for a long time, from honestly living the answer. When I was 14, my mother died. I have never been able to determine if my life would have been better had she lived. I only know that it would have been different, but I always remember her believing in my ability and encouraging me to be, well, me. Who do you think you are?…

Your 5 Principle Framework for Life

Over forty years ago, I made an (un)fortunate career choice to enter the computer industry during its infancy. It is a brutal business that changes radically every twelve to eighteen months, has tremendous cost pressures and has huge financial rewards. It is not for the faint of heart. To survive during my career, I derived five principles that provide a broad framework for life: Disruptive change will constantly occur Live one day at a time Keep a positive attitude Do something significant Embrace the richness of life Disruptive change will constantly occur Change and disruption constantly occur.

Become Aware of Your Real Wisdom

The real wisdom does not need words or explanation: it is silent. It is always inside of you, and you have to quiet your thoughts to hear it. You don’t even have to try to do anything special to hear The Wisdom. It is your essence; it is natural to you. It is who you are. You just need to be aware of who you really are. You already are everything you want to be. You are perfect, you are the Divine part of the Infinite Whole. Often you are not aware of it. Everything around you is perfect. All…

The Valuable Lessons I’ve Learned From Dogs

Everything I've learned so far I've learned from dogs! I love watching dogs run after seagulls on the beach. They set their sights on a flock and then are focused, single-minded, and even quite passionate about running down a bird. At the same time, they are very fulfilled in the thrill of the chase, having a tremendous amount of fun just frolicking on the beach. Going home without having caught a bird doesn't for one moment diminish their love of life. When we realize that just being alive is the gift that keeps on giving, we may pursue our own…

Searching for Happiness? Try Living in the Moment

I believe true happiness must come from within. And in order to “make peace” within ourselves, we must try our best to live in the moment, every moment of the day. Mastering the art of living in the moment takes courage. Having awareness of the fact that most of our thoughts are held captive in the past or anxiously awaiting the future is the first step to freedom. How do we live in the moment? By awakening to the present, clearing away our illusions or the “dust in our eyes” that cloud our ability to see what is real. Here…
