Inspirational Quotes
“I have not failed.   I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”     ― Thomas Edison

Everything around you was once a dream. What's the difference between your dreams and those that have manifested for someone else? The only difference is that they believed. Allow yourself to dream big. Allow yourself to believe in yourself. The sky is the limit, follow your passions and DREAM!

Our thoughts focus our energy, and by focusing that energy you are holding yourself to a vibration, an energy vibration. We are like magnets and like attracts like. Choose to focus on the thoughts that will attract into your life what you are wanting. Choose to be open to receiving what you are attracting. Choose to be the powerful creators that you are!

When you really believe in yourself you will choose for yourself. Choice is always about who you are and who you want to be. Choice is always about your ability to see a difference.

Everybody has a life story. It's how you tell it that matters. It is easy to defend, judge, complain, criticize all of the life experiences that we have had in life. However, by doing this we hold ourselves in a state of feeling POWERLESS. When we flip those same stories around to ones of growth, expansion, desire, inspiration and gratitude, we reconnect with who we really are. Harness your power!

Your power ends where your fear begins. How many of us beat the drum of familiar, limiting beliefs? I have no control. I will always be poor. There is nothing that I can do. That's the way it is. Only by changing your core beliefs about yourself will you experience change in the outside world. Change the story you tell, you change your life.

Everything starts with you, with the relationship you have with yourself. If you want others to be truthful to you and about you, then you have to be truthful to you and about you. If you want to be in a healthy relationship, then you have to have a healthy relationship with you first. To find true happiness you have t...o be truthful, loving, kind, gentle, compassionate with who really matters, YOU!

Everything begins with a thought and every thought begins a conversation you have with yourself. Your "self-talk" does one of either two things: it either builds you up or it tears you down. And when your self-talk spills over into conversations you have with others, now you have external proof that the thoughts you give your attention to manifest in your life because when you look around, you see evidence of how you feel everywhere.

What is the power of conversation? Ask and it is given. What you sow, you shall reap. Death and life are in the power of the tongue. When a man asks, believing, he will receive. Know thyself. Judge not. Give thanks.

In today's world it is so easy to lose you, to become disconnect from who you really are. So how do you find you again? How do you reconnect with the person that you know is deep down inside? It begins with acknowledging the conversation that you have with you every day. It begins with making your "self" a priority over everything else. It begins by choosing to reconnect with YOU! Be who you really know you are!

Acknowledging that there is a behavior or a thought or a pattern of thinking within you that does not feel good is half the battle. You are already halfway there. Now turn around and ask yourself, "If I know I don't want to feel like this and I know this is not who I am, how do I want to feel and who do I want to be." ...Choose to change your conversation and MOVE.

Be kind to you. We practice being patient, kind, giving and loving to everyone we come in contact with throughout the day, but do you practice this with yourself? Do you allow yourself to love yourself? Do you allow yourself to accept all experiences in you life as part of who you are? Are you as giving with yourself a...s you are with others? If you don't love you...who can? If you are not kind, patient and giving with you...who will be?

What is your purpose? Whatever you say it is. Your purpose is not something you look for. It is something you create along the way.

Complaining doesn't help. Wishing doesn't help. Pleading doesn't help and demanding doesn't help. Visualization helps. Appreciation helps. Feeling good helps and loving the process definitely helps. Be still. Stop thinking. Visualize. Take action. Repeat.

Understanding the law of attraction is like having the keys to manifestation. If you are aware of your thoughts and know that what you focus on you get, then you can create the version of reality that you want. Just know that every thought you focus on begins a conversation you have with yourself and then with others. ...To become aware of your thoughts, begin listening in on your conversation so you can choose change.

In order for us to move forward, we have to let go of the past. If our thoughts are stuck in what used to be, what is, or what it could have been, then we have no room for the thoughts of what could be, what we want, or what would bring us happiness. Choose to focus on the thoughts that move you forward. Choose to take your power back. Choose to feel GREAT! Choose to be who you really are!

You can re-interpret the events and experiences of your life at any time. Asking "why" you create something open communication between you and your inner self. Intentionally seeking greater meaning creates a safe, honest, peaceful and respectful experience with all realities. You have the ability to heal your relations...hip with yourself and others. It is up to you.

Changing your conversation means you are in control of your life. Intentionally changing your conversation means you choose to be happy.

Fear rules our life because neurobiology says that our brain is programmed to think and act equal to our environment. That is why change is so hard. When we understand that fear is our brain's way of keeping things exactly as they are (even though "what is" may be really bad) we can intellectually move past fear and allow ourselves to think and act greater than our environment to experience real change. This takes an act of will. And a good friend always helps.

What is your purpose? It is whatever you say it is. You begin asking yourself, what inspires me? What do I love to do? What makes me happy independent of the good opinions of others? Your purpose causes you to be happy -- not on a hedonistic level like money -- but as a "river of joy" moving through you. Trust yourself... and love yourself enough to verbalize, then live it.

Every person that has walked into your life--good, bad or indifferent--has made you who you are today. Every person who has walked into you life has pushed you sideways, forward and even backwards making you find out who you truly are. Be grateful for each and every one of them, without them you would not be the strong, powerful being you are today!

When opportunity comes knocking it is our job to first see it, then MOVE. Just like with anything else, you have to then quiet your mind of all the chatter and get down to what you really want out of this opportunity. This is where you dream BIG, the sky is the limit. Never look at what could possibly hold you back or keep you from succeeding, only focus on the end dream!

If you can't see what you want, you don't know what you want. If you can't verbalize what you want, you will definitely never have what you want. You must not only be able to talk about what you want all the time, but talk about it in minute detail, expressive imagery, colorful adjectives, deep emotion and authentic feeling to have what you want around you. Because when you can feel what you want, it's here.

It's so easy to focus on the thoughts that spin us out of control on a downward spiral, beat ourselves up, & make ourselves feel bad: depressed, anxious, jealous, etc. Then it stands to say that if we have the power to make ourselves feel bad, then we have the power to make ourselves feel GREAT by focusing on the thoughts that allow us to say: I am great, I love where I am, I am grateful, I am a beautiful being, I LOVE ME!

The only thing you can ever control is you. Every choice you make should be based on YOU. If we base our choices on someone else's happiness, we will never be happy. If we pinch ourselves off from our true selves & make choices to try to change others around us, we lose ourselves & still are not happy. Out of all the possiblities that you see, always choose what feels good to YOU! Always choose to be happy!

The non-physical you, that part of you who remembers to breathe, pump your blood and wake when the baby cries, is not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. The non-physical you remembers your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused. Your non-physical you loves and adores you.

As we experience more of life and become creatures of habitual thinking, somewhere along the line we forget that we are in control. We give away our power and think that our thoughts are just happening to us. Do you focus your mind at work, during a sports game, or during an important event? Of course you do. If you can do it sometimes, choose to do it all the time!

Build a frequency of thought that is clear and focused. Do this through thinking, feeling, saying, doing, dreaming, intending, wishing and being. In other words, use every cell of your body to focus your attention on that which produces the frequency and energy you desire. Thoughts not "aligned" with your most authentic desire: don't give them a second thought. Trust your inherent ability to design and create your life.

"Proverbs" tells us that: " Death and life are in the power of the tongue". WE need to speak positive things, not negative things.

You are in the right place, this is the right time, you are thinking the right thoughts, you are doing the right things and at this very moment, you are exactly where you're supposed to be ... moving towards the happiest time in your life. It is a process. It is your life. Talk about this beautiful process all the time. Talk about the things you are moving towards all the time and, unbelievably, unexpectedly, they will appear.

You encounter life with your attention. Attention is awareness, mindfulness and the ability to observe. Your attention is energy. You have the freedom to place your attention on anything you choose, the freedom to develop or ignore your attention, it is up to you. To know yourself you must have command of your attention. Most importantly, you must learn how to properly use it.

Finding gratitude in all of our experiences is a great way to bring yourself back into alignment with who you really are. You can't be angry & be grateful. You can't be sad & be grateful. You can't be lonely & be grateful. You can't be jealous & be grateful. Allow yourself to connect with the burning sensation that you feel in the core of your being, the joyful, expansive feeling of gratitude!

Why is it that we think of all the experiences in our life as good or bad? They are all a part of our being. They are all part of our growth. They are all here to serve us, to force to grow beyond that which we have become! Stop holding yourself back and catch up to who your life has caused you to become...spread your wings and fly!

Whatever the label may be: good or bad, painful or pleasant. Most allow the painful, bad, hurtful experiences to hold them back or keep them from moving forward... look at them as learning experiences that are there for the taking. A chance to grow.

Live your dreams. God believes in you and wants to fulfill your dreams so live them and they will be real.

Many people like to drink wine. A few people develop their sense of taste to be considered connoisseurs: they are made not born. During the course of our life we have to experience a lot of different wines to refine our palate. Simply drinking wine repeatedly does not give us that level of expertise .The same is true of life. Pay attention to what you experience. Acquire new knowledge to refine the palate of your life.

Everything begins with a thought and that thought becomes the conversation that you have with yourself & everyone around you. How you choose to focus on that thought & talk about it will either draw you closer to what you want or not. Listen to your conversations. Do ALL of them feel good to you? Are ALL of them about what you want? What are your intentions? What you think about you bring about!

Why is it that we can be true, faithful & loyal to our jobs, friends & family...but not to ourselves? Every time we don't stay true to our wants, our true desires and passions we pinch ourselves off. Eventually overtime we lose who we are. To find true happiness we have to be true to ourselves, be faithful & loyal to ourselves. Love you like you love others!

Vision is imperative. In your imagination you hold the purpose of your life. With your choices you channel your energy towards, or away, the vision that holds the purpose of your life. And when you choose well, you feel good, you feel inspired and happy. And when you choose something other than that which is your purpose, you feel bad, out of alignment and un-directed. Direct the course of your life with your thoughts. Choose.

What is it that you are wanting? What are you true passions and desires? Most of us can't answer those questions. We allow ourselves to worry about everyone else and everything else, and yet spend no time on ourselves, our purpose, our goals & dreams, our passions. If we give no attention to ourselves and have no idea what our passions and desires are, how will we ever get them? What you think about you bring about!

The more that you focus on your goals, dreams and passions the more you will be drawn to the actions required to move you to the next level. All of the work is literally in your mind staying focused on where you want to go!

Reflect upon yourself for a few moments.  What reality have you created and what visions of possibility exist for your future? Where are you taking yourself? The more you are willing to go inside and address who you are, the more clear your path and purpose will become.

As we continue to walk the path of life, our experiences cause us to ask for more of what we want. It is our job to look for the opportunities presenting themselves and act. When you see it, you will know it, when you know it, act on it. Don't second guess yourself, over analyze or worry about how. Just connect with the passion that resonates within you and ride your wave of desire!

Take a good look at your life. You are who you are and where you are because of your personal and collective beliefs. Not sure what you believe? Listen to yourself. Listen to your self-talk and your public talk. Write down the key words and phrases you use. There is death and life in the power of the tongue. There is power in conversation.

Every experience is a lesson in living. Every lesson is an opportunity to release yourself for your own entrapment. Every entrapment is a mirror that as a creator you get back what you put out. Listen to your conversations! Do they describe what you want? If not, begin describing, explaining, imagining, remembering and projecting what you want using a tool you already use every day ... the power of conversation.

Value the life you are living. Have the courage to believe in your inner strength. Do this by paying attention to the words you use about yourself and ideas you express to others. Do your words value the life you are living? Do your beliefs awaken you to your own potential? To live the life you dream possible is to believe you are in complete control of all you create. Look around. Take a stand. Value your life.

When we have expectations of others, we set ourselves up for disappointment every time. We are asking others: our spouses, children, co-workers to do or act as we want them to. We are asking others to do the impossible, they can never live up to an ever changing expectation that only you create. You are asking them to change to meet your needs.

When you start to understand the laws of attraction and that everything you put out, you get back. Amazing things start to happen. All of a sudden all of the things that you have been asking for start appearing in the strangest of places and the greatest of times. Our job is to allow ourselves to have what we so desperately have been asking for. All of us ask...but do you allow?

Your health and well-being must be your choice. If you are saying, "I am unhappy", or "I am unwell", it follows that the next question should be, "What would it take to be happy?", "What would it take to be well?". Only you can answer these questions because only you are living your life. Embrace your life! Love your life! Only you can allow yourself to be experience the life you say you want.


Your conscious thought is a powerful force. Remember, while a portion of your identity is firmly in the physical world, the greater part of you, the non-physical you, is waves of possibilities or intelligent energy. Every moment contains infinite choices. You must therefore take complete responsibility for each moment and select a vibration that reinforces the version of reality you wish to experience.

You only live once. Outlive your life.

The meaning you assign every event in your life determines the outcome of your experience. In other words, If you tell the story that an encounter with a co-worker victimized you, then your life appears full of uncontrollable, unhappy events. If you tell the story of the same experience as a lesson in compassion and kindness, your life becomes fearless, rich in meaning because your power begins where your fear ends.

Your outside reflects your inside, in other words, what you think, feel & what manifests are an exact match every time with no exceptions. So, if you look around & like what you see, then change nothing. If you look around & don't like what you see, change something. If you are in control either way, you might as well choose to create the life you truly want. Choose to change your conversation.

"In the midst of your mind lies a place where silence reigns.
It is called silence because the chatter of the ego has been stilled
and only God’s Voice can be heard. It will speak to you non-stop
in all the ways that you dream, and It will replace the dreams of the world
with those that exist in Heaven."

You are ultimately responsible for cherishing and valuing your life. Before this is possible on a long term basis, you must learn a little more about who you are before you can design a better experience and emit a better frequency to those around you. Knowing more about yourself is a learned process  and like integrity, patience, compassion, perseverance, or cooperation, it is choice you must be willing to make.

Whatever your story is, you can change it. You must be willing to do the work of getting in touch with how you feel about the experiences you have stored inside. This is how you learn to get well. This is how you build the belief that it is entirely possible for you to create a vibrant, rich life. This is how to embrace a new way of looking at your life.

Young souls learn to accept responsibility for their actions. Mature souls learn to accept responsibility for their thoughts. And old souls learn to accept responsibility for their happiness. Learn to accept responsibility for your thoughts and you can move on to accepting responsibility for your happiness.

We only suffer through our thoughts. When we learn to let go of an "idea" that we are so desperately holding onto, we can then see that we have been allowing ourselves to suffer for nothing. Open yourself up to the many possibilities that surround you, as soon as you do, your world feels better...more vibrant, more exciting, more lively, more loving, more you. Learn to shift your thoughts, change your conversation and you will change your life.
