Find Your Inspiration – 100 Day Blog Challenge – Day 78

Find Your Inspiration

My post from yesterday came about because of a comment someone made and it got under my skin.  Later that night, I listened to a training with Robin Sharma as the main topic.  I was recently introduced to Robin Sharma back in October or November from my Regional Mentor and one of the books he recommended I read is The Leader Who Had No Title.  Admittedly, I started reading the book, but I haven’t finished, but what I have read is pretty darn amazing. 

During last night’s training, Robin hit on some key points to having a great life, but what really hit a nerve for me were some of his quotes.  For anyone who knows me, knows I live for great quotes.  What I’d like to do is share some of the quotes that spoke to me and what I wrote down.  Perhaps one or more will resonate with you:

“Limits are liars and fears are thieves.  Don’t trust them!”

“Inspiration drives optimal performance.”

“Fuel your well of inspiration.”

“Fuel the inspiration that invokes your best ideas!”

“Keep your inspiration high.”

“Live in a tight bubble of inspiration.”

“The quality of your routines determines the caliber of your performance.”

“Don’t waste your day doing anything that you are not passionate about.”

“Every master was once a beginner.  Every pro was once an amateur.”

“The seduction of ‘safety’ is often more dangerous than the ‘perception’ of uncertainty.”

“Your perception of your potential will determine how much of your potential you will live.”

Throughout his training, Robin literally took us on a trip around the world.  We saw exotic islands, the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City and everywhere in between.  What did this training do for me?  For a while I have been in a “poor me” phase, which is a phase I really don’t like to be.  It seemed like things weren’t happening for me; people were going sideways; some entered the Witness Protection Program; and it felt like a downward spiral.  Robin Sharma’s training helped me realize what I already know, but needed to hear in a different way.

Regardless of what someone ELSE does, that does NOT determine my future, my life and/or my success.  Everything always results from MY actions.  What others do or don’t do is not the end factor of my future.  It rises and falls with MY actions!!!  So, I need to follow the training and quotes I wrote from last night, eliminate the toxic people out of my life, and surround myself with those who inspire me and have a positive impact on me.  This spills over into my life and creates an environment of positive energy.

I highly recommend reading and surrounding yourself with inspiring people; people who push you to make you a better person and always be willing to learn and grow.
