Inspiration can be found in many different ways .......it can be found in the timely words you read in a quote that triggers a flash of deep personal insight.
You can be inspired by hearing the story of someone overcoming hardship and adversity that rekindles your own self-belief.... Inspiration can come from a song or piece of music that brings a sense of joy to your heart; or it could be in the quiet image of a simple sunset that uplifts your spirit and helps you transcend your worries.
I hope that somewhere here, you might find the source of inspiration that you need ...
"Throw back your shoulders,
let your heart sing,
let your eyes shine,
let your mind be lifted up,
look to the heavens and repeat confidently to yourself ....
Nothing is impossible this day!"
Norman Vincent Peale

An Inspiration: Successful "Failures"
In this short video clip, you will be inspired by some of the famous people who had been dismissed by others early in their lives and careers, as "not having what it takes".

For me, their stories offer a message of hope - these people have overcome major set-backs, then we can too .
Positive Affirmationsto Inspire
Many of us recognise the power of the mind in influencing how we are feeling.

If You Think You Are Beaten
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.

But sooner or later, the one who wins
Is the one who thinks he can
