Inspirational message | Something Profound? Part I
Profound. Goal setting. We’re all intimidated of it. What, something of value inside of us? No, seriously, you must be joking. There’s nothing profound or deep inside. I’m not one who offers Inspirational quotes or driven intentions to others. If I were someone important, I’d have done something or be doing something significant. My life would look like a long list of inspirational quotes to others. Does this voice sound familiar to you? Not exactly an inspirational message…
Let me ask you…what is significant? What does it need to be to be considered success, or a life full of inspirational messages? Inspirational quotes attached to our name? To each person, that question brings a different answer.
Maybe we’re afraid our answers aren’t good enough, our life is not full inspirational quotes.
Well, what exactly are those? If our answers are not good enough, maybe we need to ask why? And why does this person/s hold so much weight? What exactly are we afraid of? Our own potential or the idea that someone or some establishment may criticize?
Here’s my thought for the day. Friends, I don’t have all the answers. I don’t have inspirational quotes running through my veins at all times. But I do know weakness. I know fear. I realize we, by nature are not full of positive reflection or inspirational quotes. I see the strongest need for most people on the planet involves searching for inspirational quotes, inspiring messages and motivational stories. We stack our scenarios up against those inspirational quotes, see if they even compare. I do empathize because at the core of every reason why one does not “shoot for something big” stands fear and doubt. Because the old familiar “friend” of failure is more comfortable than the new friend of unknown. Unknown is vulnerability. Unknown is risk…it’s murkey, scary and even awkward. But those are only the negative aspects, which I keep seeing as a pattern, tend to be the main focuses. Let’s look at the flip side: Unknown is also:
Adventurous, Fun, Growth, Discovery, Challenge, Reflection Every set of inspirational quotes involve these.
Going into uncharted waters can be a beautiful thing; what if you discover a talent you never knew you had? Or even that you’re better at it than the familiar territory in which you’ve rested for years? Whether it be a hobby or career related, or fitness – any stage is one of growth. And you better – is profound. You, standing in the light in which you were created is a wonder. You, letting new discovery in feeds the soul, feeds you. Too many of us sell ourselves short, it’s time to stop giving that negative voice your attention.
That negative voice that shuts out inspirational quotes, motivational messages – is like cancer of the mind.
It has no success factor – only a black hole.
This is where smart goal setting takes place and inspirational quotes become your goal sheet. It starts with you, your mind and ability to let discovery in. The Greats in this world understood/understand that. Smart goals involve doing things within your capability and building on. It’s the key; nothing on this planet is anything – without the health of your mind on a solid foundation of positive belief and growth. It’s powerful and what you feed it, be it positive or negative – ultimately defines YOU. Become those inspirational stories and inspirational quotes you see attached to others.
Do not set up a scenario that is vague; defining smart goals involve things you can see clearly. They also involve a support system, share with a friend or loved one who will listen to your inspirational quotes; as something to take seriously.
This “inspirational quotes” is a huge topic and will be more than one post for sure! Here’s an example of what I did the other night, see about trying something new yourself. Its rewarding! I’m not a musician, I cannot write or hardly read music. I struggled in all math and most people great at math are excellent in music. But I’ve always loved it and paint my best by it…goes back to creating inspirational stories! As you may know, I love the Big Cats…and my art is one way of bringing out their voice…the other night I composed my very first song for the lion…didn’t know this was in me, so glad I gave it a shot. Enjoy the video below featuring the lion paintings and audio together.
