To Inspire Is Incredible

What Inspires You?

inspire_1

What if I told you that you can be your own biggest inspiration? That may seem strange, but it is true. You are your biggest source of inspiration if you know how to motivate yourself. Someone once said, “If ever there was a time to follow your passion and do something that matters to you now is certainly that time.” I like this quote because it puts the focus back where it belongs: on you! It is important for you to realize that true inspiration comes from within, not without. While we might be inspired by someone else’s story or by something we witness, ultimately it comes back to internal motivation if we are to be truly inspired to do what we want to do!


Your source of inspiration will drive you to move beyond the status quo If you are content with doing something the same old way, you will never achieve anything important. Millions of people are doing it the same old way! Instead, why not do something different and stand out from the crowd?
You must remember that whatever inspires you will take you out of your comfort zone. This is why so many people never follow their dreams or pursue their passions: because moving outside the status quo can be uncomfortable. Change can be frightening, and breaking new ground means, by definition, making changes. In many cases, you are trying things you have never tried before and doing things in ways that are not familiar. You may not be able to find much support for your endeavors simply because so few people know how to do what you are doing!
Still, if you keep up the hard work, you can truly be your own best inspiration. It all starts with attitude: tell yourself at all times that you can accomplish your goals. Set your goals just above what you think you can attain and you will surprise yourself with how quickly you reach them! Call on your supportive group of friends and family to hold you accountable, give you the cheering section you need and ultimately underpin your success.
Remember that the only thing that can truly drive you to pursue your passion is you!

Ambitious Women NEVER Arrive

 You Never Actually Get To A Place Where You Can Say, “I Have Arrived.

MAKES

I never have to set any more goals and I never have to work to change myself in any way again.  I can simply stay right here and be happy.”  I wish I could tell you that the work stops at a certain point, but it does not.  Frankly, I am actually glad, because if we were allowed to “rest on our laurels” most of what we achieve would probably never happen!  Keeping ourselves busy and always setting new goals is what keeps us vibrant and engages our brains, keeping them quick and agile even into our sunset years!

It is amazing to me how the older a woman gets the more incredible things she can accomplish.  While I love my young friends, and I am so proud of the amazing work young women are doing in today’s business world, I have to say that in my experience the older ladies really have the experience and knowledge necessary to do incredible things.  We spend our entire lives gathering the skills and the know-how to run a business or achieve other goals, so it is no surprise that “experience counts!”

Whether you are young or old, however, the same rules apply to be an ambitious woman.  You must be accountable, be humble, be consistent, be loyal, be ambitious, be empowered, choose wisely and have the right attitude.  Ultimately, when you change yourself, you begin to make changes in the world around you.

You’re ready to make a difference!  Ambitious Women want to march forth, bringing others along with us, and make an impact on our world.  However, we cannot do that without being willing to do the hard work necessary to make ourselves successful.  Bill Bradley put it well when he said, “Ambition is the path to success.  Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.”  Stick to your goals, work hard and develop the right attitude about your work and your life and you, too, will make a difference as an Ambitious Woman!

We All Need Attitudes

Ralph Marston said, “Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude.”
Is This True For You?

Do you have an attitude of excellence?  You might be saying to yourself, “I am not even sure what that means.”  An attitude of excellence is an attitude of assurance, of capability, and of “can-do” that never gives up, even when the obstacles are large and may seem insurmountable.

positive-attitudeIf you want a little inspiration, let me introduce you to Nick Vojicic.  Nick was born with no arms, no legs and only a tiny flipper on one foot.  Incredibly, Nick is one of the most positive people you will ever meet!  He made a decision not to allow his physical limitations to become a reason that he could not accomplish goals.  He travels around the world, sharing his story, and blogs regularly on his experiences.  In one blog post, he writes:  “Dream big, my friend, and never give up. We all make mistakes, but none of us are mistakes. Take one day at a time. Embrace the positive attitudes, perspectives, principles, and truths I share, and you too will overcome.”

I am willing to bet that you are not facing limitations such as Nick Vojicic has, so how can you possibly have a less positive attitude than he does!  Nick’s attitude has enabled him to live more than many people who have no physical handicaps at all.  No matter what happens, Nick has learned that staying positive is the key to achieving your goals.

A positive attitude of excellence will help you achieve more than any amount of training or even any infusion of cash in your business life, as well.  Stop making excuses and start living positively.  Surround yourself with positive people; nothing drags your attitude down faster than a “naysayer.”  Support others with achieving their goals and you will find yourself better able to achieve yours!  Remember that attitude is the most important thing that will probably determine your success or failure in any endeavor, so do an attitude check today.  How does your attitude measure up; are you positive enough to climb any mountain and overcome any obstacle?
