The Courage To Follow Your Heart

During my 61 years on this earth, I have learned that living life successfully requires great courage and risk. While I think I always knew this simple truth, I didn't find the courage to follow my dreams until I was 48. And I have never looked back! My life today reflects the dreams that I had 50 years ago, when I was 11 years old. I wouldn't have the life I have today had I not taken the risk--learning from the turtle that you only make progress when you stick your neck out. We are continually faced with great opportunities…

How to Embrace Your Soul

We are inherently spiritual in nature and all connected at higher levels of consciousness. As spiritual beings, we operate on multiple levels of higher consciousness simultaneously, but our physical senses create the illusions of individuality and of only the physical universe existing. Because we are connected spiritually, in your interactions with others always keep in mind that superficial differences like skin color, race, religion and nationality are insignificant. When you acknowledge your deeper spiritual connections with others, your compassion and love for others and yourself will deepen. The reason we are connected to others spiritually is because consciousness is imbued…

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…

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…

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…

Take Advantage of This Joyful Ride

Life is Mother Nature's most important gift. Life is the time provided to us by nature to pursue our dreams and goals and live it to the fullest. Life is an ongoing experience, where each one of us faces different situations and incidents that either make or break us. It's just a matter of the way you perceive things; it's your attitude towards the experiences that make your life a joyful ride. To me the difference between a successful and unsuccessful person is whether or not they are taking action instead of giving-up. If there is one thing I don't…

Make Time for What’s Important

Make time for your hopes, dreams and goals. Five years ago I had a life-altering experience that has contributed to the person that I am today, the adoption of my daughter, Mia. As my love for her grew, so did my hopes, dreams and goals, which were no longer just for me anymore but also for my daughter, husband, family, friends and the global community at large. With the demands of our busy lives it is so easy to lose sight of our hopes, dreams and goals. At every turn we are distracted by text messages, cell phone calls and…

Being Authentically You

The most important gift that you can give yourself, and the world, is to live an authentic life. This takes a lot of courage and commitment as society tends to pull you in all different directions, pushing you to be everything and anything but who you wish to be yourself. If you want to live an inspired life, it's vital that you are true to you, what your dreams and visions are and what kind of life you would love to lead, not somebody else's idea of what that is. It's time for you to honour yourself and your passions…

The Power of Dreams, Love, and Gratitude

Before my daughter goes to bed at night, I reaffirm to her what I believe are some of the most important thoughts and beliefs that I have used to guide me, my closest family, my friends, and my patients as well. These are the principles that I share with her: One, believe in your dreams and desires and know that there is absolutely no limitation for any of them. It is not our job to ask as to how they will be provided by the universe, but simply to trust that you will achieve them and receive them. It is…

3 Important Principles For Getting What You Want

Appreciate people. Growing up as a shy girl, I always kept to myself. I never felt compelled to depend on others or even communicate with the many wonderful people that surrounded me. Now all grown up and having come out of my shell, I realize that one of the most happiest feelings in the world can be found in the connections that we make with others. The general kindheartedness that I find in people is enough to light up the universe. We live in one life but also in one world that we share. As much control as we have over…

You see, I am no different than…

Your Amazing, Brilliant Self

Never see yourself as less than others. Never think that they must know more than you do. That they have a better brain, and that they are way cooler. Don’t spend your life thinking people are automatically wiser and smarter than you. They are not. You are actually quite the person. Brilliant. Inquisitive. And with a darn big heart. Start seeing yourself for the first time as you really are. A true warrior. A spectacular soul that has a very special journey ahead. If you do, that is when it will all start to unfold. Dreams will leap from your…

Express Yourself!

Freedom is letting go of your limitations and expressing your true self! How often have you been in a situation where you really wanted to say something but were afraid to speak up because of what people might think of you? Maybe you wanted to change your career but knew that “you’d never hear the end of it”.... What if you could have a magic wand and change all of that? I remember years ago being in one of those situations where I came across opposition to the decisions I had made about my own future. I was sitting at…
