For it's not light that is needed, but fire; it's not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the whirlwind and the earthquake in our hearts.
Colleen C. Barrett
Success is nothing more or less than being who you want to be; progressing toward your ideal each day.
Jaren L. Davis
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. And the fact that it practically always doesn’t matters not a jot. The possibility is always there.
Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit light a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it..
Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and when to hold on tight. Stop rushing. Don't be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop apologizing all the time. Learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph. Spend time with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. Stop giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy it. Finally, know who you are.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Some time ago, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and reacted in the way most people would. First thing came to mind was a "death sentence".

In a way, distance runners create their own magic. They pull miles and miles out of their hats, and in full stride, they make energy gels seemingly appear out of thin air. Dedicated runners are able to multiply race bibs like white rabbits (though many wish they could multiply those hard-to-come-by safety...

'Inspiration is the language of a free spirit'

I took my diagnosis of skin cancer (which includes surgeries and burning) and turned it around to help kids know about addictions (mine was to tanning) and skin cancer. I turned a negative into a positive for both myself and the students I talk to.

Inspiration is an internal event. I seemed to have locked the door, yet got some serious help opening it through an online mentoring site (their name says it all!) called FTRnation.com (aka Free Thinking Renegades). I realized my thinking wasn't free, and had to find my way back to it. Loved your post and other comments. Thanks for the info!!

The quote that gets my day started all the time is Live, Laugh, Love. I hope these words will inspire people all day.
Ms. Richardson, Flordia
Including others can be as simple as sharing your ethnic/family meal with someone that different than you. I shared my favorite cookbook and recipe with a co-worker of a different ethnic background. He approached me during break and asked for help to make American food. His child is in school and is exposed to many new tastes. I was honored.
Dolores Phifery, York, PA
It is such a wonderful site for the youngsters . Everyone should know the values, motivation and inspiration to all. I really enjoy and appreciate for your valuable quotes, videos and audios. Thank you so much.
The world definitely needs more encouragement and inspiration. Love all your advertising spots on T.V. If more people took your messages to heart and tried to pass them on, what a much more pleasant world this would be. Keep up the great work! I'm really a believer in random acts of kindness. Wish more folks felt the same!
Carolyn H. Smith, Brandon, Mississippi
I've been logging on to your site for about a year or so. I must tell you that it is truly amazing the way I have changed my ways and behavior. The way I act and react to simple day to day obstacles have changed for the better thanks to you.

I am a nursing home nurse, and every time that I work, I smile. Some nurses say that I am little crazy. But I explain to them that the smile is contagious and chronic. The more you do, the more you receive and is more natural. Thank you for this little corner, I really enjoy and appreciate yours advertising.
