Happy Monday + Be Happier!

Happy Monday! I hope you enjoyed a great weekend.  The trees are slowly changing colors here,  the air is crisp and cool, making me feel refreshed and energized...

I am sharing a few tips by Katrina Love Senn about how to live an inspiring life. I find her website inspirational and her message rings true. I hope it does for you! Have a great week!

Do you want to live a life filled with purpose, meaning and inspiration?   

The good thing is that anyone can live an inspired life; filled with happiness and joyfulness.
Realise that any frustration that you are experiencing right now is actually an invitation for you to transform...

Feeling stuck is an opportunity for you to experiment with something different. When you do this, you can start to live an empowered and powerful life that you love.

Today, my message is simple: starting right now, you can live an inspiring life that you love.  Realise that to live a life you love, you do not need to be born into the right family, nor do you need more beauty, brains, money or anything else.

Here are 4 ideas that I have personally used in my own life that can help you to create an inspirational life that you love, as well...

Idea #1: Think big.

Constantly surround yourself with thoughts of what you want to achieve. Let your big thoughts encourage and inspire you to connect with your dreams. No matter what anyone says, remember, that you deserve to live a life that you love.
It was David Joseph Schwartz, author of “The Magic of Thinking Big,” and world-renowned expert on motivation, who said,
“Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success.”

Idea #2: Read and collect inspiring quotes.  

Use inspirational quotes to empower and inspire you on your journey towards success.  Think of inspirational quotes as inspirational thoughts that you can use to help you navigate your path towards creating a life that inspires you.
Here are a couple of inspirational quotes that I have used in the past to re-inspire myself in the face of challenge or difficulty in my life…
“It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are.”
–E.E. Cummings
“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” –A.A. Milne

Idea #3: Surround yourself with inspirational people.

Connect with mentors and other people who believe in you and can inspire you to go beyond who you are and what you think you are capable of. The most successful people are those that can turn the lessons of hardship and failure into their platform for success.  Even if you can’t spend time with them in person, immerse yourself in their inspirational messages through audio, books or videos.
Have a think about who inspires you? What people do you like to spend time with? How can you spend more time with them? Do you enjoy reading their books, listening to them on audio or watching them on film?

Idea #4: Keep going until you succeed.

Most successful people don’t succeed the first time they try something. Gosh, they might not succeed the second or even the third time. But, if they keep trying they eventually get it.
The secret to creating a life that you love is to keep trying out new and different things until you find a way that works for you. The types of strategies that work for one person, may not work for another. Keep on experimenting by trial-and-error until you find what works best for you.
Did you know that a baby falls over approximately 700 times before it takes its’ first step forward? Imagine if it gave up after the first few attempts!  It would be destined to a life without walking.

Let these ideas inspire you to live a life that you love!

When you surround yourself with inspirational thoughts and people that you respect you can live an amazing life that you absolutely love.
