Have you ever had one of those days when things just don’t go right to begin with, and then, to make matters worse, it just seems to go from bad to worse? I bet you could use a little inspiration, right?

Am I ever hungry for some inspiration!

Am I ever hungry for some inspiration!

Have you ever felt so low that it’s a real stretch from the gutter to the curb? It’s then that you are really looking for it.

Probably, most people have had such days. But where do we turn when bad things happen to great people?

We know we can’t stay in the quicksand of negativity for very long, can we?

The Power Of Inspiration

Whether we are seeking spiritual guidance or wisdom, inspiration has the power to turn everything around.

Did you know that the word charisma is the Greek word for grace? It’s real meaning is divine influence upon the heart.
That influence — God at work within us — is INSPIRATION.

A closely related word, albeit rare, is the word afflatus, meaning a divine creative impulse or inspiration.
From the Latin, it is the act of blowing or breathing on. Picture God breathing life into you every moment.
Every time you inhale, something most people take for granted, you are experiencing inspiration.

How much inspiration do you need to really live?

How much inspiration do you need to really live?

I say,

Inspiration is respiration to our aspirations.

Isn’t it interesting the number of sources we draw inspiration from? Inspiration comes to us in many forms:

  • artistic scenes
  • communion, meditation, prayer time with God
  • flashes of genius. It’s too bad many people don’t pay more attention to those flashes.
  • motivational speeches. This 14-minute speech will lift your lid!
  • outings in nature. Personally, I find much of my spiritual refreshment in nature, where I can spend alone time with God.
  • perfectly penned prose
  • soaring music
  • the sheer will to live
  • today’s thought leaders. Their deep level thinking and wisdom awakens and inspires my creativity.

However we receive it, I think the reason we are drawn so magnetically to inspiration is because we need:

  • awakening from complacency and procrastination
  • fresh insights
  • higher elevations of thought, such as found here
  • new perspectives
  • major motivation

  1. Hi Bill,
    Thanks for sharing these bits of inspiration and motivation. Also thanks for the meanings behind the words. I knew 23 was Wayne Dyer before the author’s name was revealed. He is one of my favorites. Right now i’m reading why is god laughing. It’s a sneaky book that teaches some heavy principles. After reading this post and understanding how important inspiration is to everyone’s lives, I will no longer fight it when people say I inspire them. Thanks for making the case so powerfully. Take care my friend, Max
    maxwell ivey recently posted…Calliope Corner episode 3 a Chance WipeoutMy Profile

    • Hi Max,
      You’re very welcome. I think it’s important to focus our energy and attention on what uplifts, motivates and inspires us. Certainly when we compare that idea to all the negativity that begs our attention at every turn, taking time for what inspires us becomes an imperative. I discovered Wayne Dyer’s material back in the 70’s. My favorites still are Gifts From Eykis, The Power of Intention, and Inspiration: Your Ultimate Calling.

      Yes, no sense fighting the inspiration that you are. Bring it on! 🙂

  2. I love these inspirational quotes. During the 80’s I was extremely ill and what kept me going was Frankie Laine’s song “I Believe”. We truly do need something or Someone to inspire us – not just in the bad times (although that’s when we seem to remember it most often) but also daily.

    • Hi Lenie,
      I think that our deepest learning is always in the valleys of life, not in our mountaintop moments. I also think the effort to reach the top, to get to the summit, and not plateau, is what makes the view so incredibly rewarding when we get there. It’s in our moments of great struggle, such as what you’ve shared, that we need all the inspiration and encouragement we can get.

      All the best!

  3. Hi Bill,

    Well, first of all, “SumoMe” is doing a great job! I just used it to tweet my favorite quote from this post 🙂

    As usual, you have shared some amazing inspirational quotes and made it hard to mark one or two as the best. All of them are fabulous and life changing.

    Have a great day!

    Kumar Gauraw recently posted…Top 10 SEO Bloggers To Follow For SEO, Traffic And Conversion TipsMy Profile

    • Hi Kumar,
      It’s true. We only receive what we focus on. In this troubled world, I think it’s best to focus on the positives and BE an inspiration to others is the best way to add value to ourselves and others. Who or what would you say is your highest inspiration?

      Kind Regards,

  4. We all need to be inspired, it is all around us, we just need to open our eyes (number 5 speaks to me 🙂

    • Hi Sandy,
      Inspiration is oxygen to the spirit. I’m glad you like the Jim Rohn quote. You can get the Jim Rohn Treasury of Quotations (more than a years worth at no charge) by subscribing to my website, if you so desire.

      Have a great week!

  5. Bill,

    I draw from the words of so many that I really cannot begin to list them all. However, I am always encouraged by other bloggers, like yourself, who just seem to always have the right words at the right time. Keep writing, because you will always encourage someone else. One of my best moments was during a particular tough time a young man reached out to me and said how he enjoyed my work. He may not realize it, but those words were priceless.
    Edward Reid recently posted…A Long Way From HomeMy Profile

    • Hi Edward,
      Thanks for those words of encouragement. We may never know who engages us indirectly and their lives are changed. It happens directly too though.
      Just the other day, a stranger became an acquaintance, simply because we engaged in conversation. There is real potential to be great friends.
      It’s the little things in life like this, the humble beginnings, that also give life such meaning of purpose, hope and inspiration.

      Thanks for sharing your memorable moment. Moments like that are also priceless.

      Enjoy your week!

  6. Inspiration is respiration to our aspirations..Ahh I loved this quote!! And Nice post!
    Number 14, I feel is the best one! 🙂
    Tuhin recently posted…6 reasons why kids lie!My Profile

    • Hi Tuhin,
      Welcome back! 🙂 Glad you like the Byron Katie quote. Her full name is Byron Kathleen Mitchell. Talk about inspiration! She radiates it! 🙂
      She was in a halfway house with an eating disorder. What she discovered has not only changed her life, but countless thousands since.

      She says,

      “I discovered that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered, but that when I didn’t believe them, I didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being. Freedom is as simple as that. I found that suffering is optional. I found a joy within me that has never disappeared, not for a single moment.”

      Think of how inspired we can get just by paying attention to our own positive thoughts. 😉

      Have a great week!

  7. Hi Bill,

    Great inspirational post, indeed. I love the Lao Tzu quote. It’s so true and I’m so aware of it now. I only wish I were when I was in my twenties, but there were no life coach around me back then 🙂

    As always, you’ve shared some very inspiring thought provoking quotes that’s going to make our day.
    Sylviane Nuccio recently posted…How To Manage Your Time Like A Pro For Your Home Based BusinessMy Profile

    • Hi Sylviane,
      It really takes so little to be happy. In fact, I’m convinced that’s the secret. The less we have, the happier we are. So many people look for inspiration outside of themselves — in other people, and other places. As I often say,

      “Go within — or go without!”

      Thanks for contributing to the discussion. I appreciate you!

  8. I had one of those bear days today Bill. Not proud of it; just saying. It is now the afternoon and I am more calm and your post played no small amount in helping me settle down. Thanks. I was to say where I draw my most inspiration from it would be my mother. Never grumpy, always optimistic. Can’t beat that!
    Tim recently posted…The Embryo of AdventureMy Profile

    • Hi Tim,
      Yeah, we’ve all had them. Sometimes, the day is going fine, then all of a sudden, it takes a turn. I’m glad this post was able to help you. Aw, thanks for sharing about your mother. Mine’s been gone 20 years now. She died way too soon from cancer. I think it’s really important to know what to turn to for inspiration. It is then that we can get turned around in our thinking and immediately improve our outlook.

      All the best!

  9. I like the way you started your post. I have a very short post which relates to that feeling of such a day, called “Days when you are not having it”. I have been losing flashes of inspiration and so now I just note down on my phone when a thought comes, park it and then refer to it when I need it. I realised that as you say, different things and places and events inspire me and I have to note them down or else I lose them.
    Welli recently posted…Teabags, hot water and characterMy Profile

    • Hi Welli,
      Nice to have you return 🙂 That’s a great idea! Especially with all the devices there are now. And with cloud services, you can create an Inspiration folfer and have it at a moment’s notice. It’s a great way to also keep it always on your mind too.

      Thanks. Have a great week!

  10. Hi Bill,

    I saw your blog from your comment on Becc’s blog. I’m interested in the title of this article., I guess 🙂

    These inspirations are amazing, Bill.
    I am happy to know. Indeed, their words inspiring.

    For me, following someone who has been successful is the path to success.
    That’s the words that inspire me 🙂

    Thanks for the share, Bill.
    Nice share!

    Nanda Rahmanius recently posted…4 Ways To Protect Yourself From the ‘Heartbleed’ BugMy Profile

    • Welcome Nanda 🙂
      So glad these words of inspiration are meaningful to you. I would agree with you about following a successful person’s path until you arrive at your own, so long as that path leads you to your purpose and vision, and not someone else’s idea of what success should mean to you. Only you can know that for yourself for certain. 😉

      You’re very welcome Nanda. My pleasure to add value.

      All the best!

  11. Bill,
    Long time. But remember, my prayers and best wishes are always with people, who inspire others. And you are among them. My last few months were quite challenging, but God is so sweet to keep uplifting His people.

    Back to this post, it is great that most of quotes seem to be new, though I heard and read some of them. You’ve inspired me a lot. Over the last few days, I decided to go though and search more regarding Tzu’s life. His quote is a great lesson. Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize nothing is lacking, the whole world belongs to you. ~ Lao Tzu.
    Happy day! We are great here, Charmant
    Charmant recently posted…We have been “Born Again” to a “Living Hope” Do you have this “living hope”?My Profile

    • Hi Charmant. Out of sight, but never out of mind, my friend! So glad to hear you are well. 🙂
      Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers too. I appreciate that.

      Yes, there is a lot of old school wisdom that still provides lifetimes of inspiration. There is also Sun Tzu you may be interested in looking up.
      When it comes to wisdom, it was the one thing Solomon asked for, and I think that is the best thing anyone could ask for.

      Keep up the good work inspiring others!

  12. I love your posts because they are so inspirational in themselves. You seem to thrive on the positive which is good. I always come away from your posts and think about them throughout the day and sometimes go back and read them again. Negativity is toxic so focusing on the positives is the best way to live and you can’t help be an inspiration to others.

    • Hi Arleen,
      Thanks for those kind words. It’s very thoughtful of you. 🙂 Considering we have a choice in the matter, I will always choose the positive. And yes, I do thrive on it! I love being around inspirational, motivational, encouraging people. I read uplifting, thought-provoking material. I guess some of that magic is rubbing off on others. 😉 I’m glad my writing helps you.

      Kind Regards,

  13. Bill, I find most of them inspirational but tend to put Iyanla Vanzant into the most general practice. As always a well researched, considered and constructive post

    • Hi Paul,
      I like Iyanla too. I don’t think either of us need to be on the Oprah show to inspire others. I really enjoy your writing style, and I often find myself chuckling as I read. So there you have it. You’re an inspiration to me! 😀 Thanks for the kind words of encouragement too.

      Best regards,

  14. My fav: Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored. ~ Earl Nightingale

    I get lots of inspiration from blogs, books, and articles I read online. I love to use quotes. People can relate to them well!
    Laurie Hurley recently posted…What A Mastermind, Sandwiches, and Traffic Taught Me About BusinessMy Profile

    • Hi Laurie,
      Well, I’m finally getting caught up. I’ve been busier (in a productive way) than a one legged rooster in the middle of heavy freeway traffic.
      I have read much of Earl Nightingale’s material, and I can’t help but wonder, how many tens of thousands of lives were changed just from each of those who came under his tutelage, and how they went on to inspire others. Another source of inspiration for me is relation music, quiet piano music, or soft guitar music. That just sends me places my creativity awakens to. Thank you for contributing! I appreciate you!


  15. As usual, another excellent post that comes at the right time.
    Jason B recently posted…20 Companies That Are Currently Hiring In AtlantaMy Profile

    • Hi Jason,
      It would be nice to know why the timing of this post was good for you. Was it helpful? Inspirational? Motivational?
      What words did you resonate with most? I can’t tell from your reply. Please let me know. Thanks!

      • It comes as motivation. Looking for new employment, paying off debt and trying to grow a website isn’t the easiest. A lot of the quotes hit home. I realize that I am doing the right thing for my future.
        Jason B recently posted…Creating a Web SiteMy Profile

        • Hi Jason,
          I appreciate you returning to answer my questions, as it helps me understand better. 🙂
          I think need inspiration every day, especially when facing various challenges, a few of which you’ve mentioned.

          All the best to you!

  16. Every time I inhale I am experiencing inspiration……I absolutely love this! This post is right on time. Thank you.
    Niekka McDonald recently posted…Surviving My Liver DetoxMy Profile

    • Hi Niekka,
      So glad you like that one. It’s something I think is easy to overlook. But if we keep this definition of inspiration in mind, soon we take on a whole new awareness and appreciation of life itself. And that’s something none of us should ever take for granted.

      All the best to you!

  17. Lately, I have Been listening to the Beatle’s greatest hits and that has put me in a good Mood. I am a Sucker for quotes and all of these are fabulous. One I Like is “life is for the gambler.” To me it means always take chances and never live with regrets. Great post! 🙂

  18. I love these quotes, but I think my favorite part is the etymology of the word charisma. It’s such a beautiful, and hopeful, thought. Truly inspiring! Thank you, your words always brighten my day.
    Meredith Wouters recently posted…Master Bedroom Makeover on a BudgetMy Profile

    • Hi Meredith,
      Thank you for your feedback on charisma. It’s an aspect I dwell upon frequently. It is a very hopeful thought.
      You’re most welcome! 😀 Thank you for those kind words of encouragement. We can all use more of that, can’t we?

  19. I love all of the quotes. I think inspiration comes when we slow down and are open to it. Many of the quotes spoke to that – enjoying the moment, opening your heart, seeing the miracles and magic around you.
    Donna Janke recently posted…Hopping On and Off Fort Lauderdale Water TaxiMy Profile

    • Hi Donna,
      Nicely stated, and I agree. Being receptive, being open to inspiration, creates the awareness Thich Nhat Hanh spoke of in the third quote.

      Kind Regards,

  20. Ah yes, I find myself in complacency and procrastination and it can hinder inspiration. I like the idea of flipping that so taking a moment to feel inspired can awaken you from complacency and procrastination.

    • Welcome back Christina.
      I think it’s really important to combat negative thinking and bad habits with just such a reversal. I say take every moment you need to get motivated. 😉
      Have a great rest of the week!

  21. Mary Stephenson says:

    Hi Bill

    I watched the speech. That was really awesome. We want but forget how badly we really want. I suppose unless our backs are against the wall we don’t always take aggressive action to fulfill our life desires. Then you wonder how much we really want them. Would loved to have had the message 50 years ago. But it makes really good sense and now to decipher what really is important.

    Sometimes when you ask for answers they come disguised and you know it is away of showing you what direction you need to take. Been getting a lot of that lately!


    • Hi Mary,
      Glad you like that speech. I like how he gave those youth a reality check, and of course, takeaways for the rest of us. The essence of what E.T. said outlined a key point, and that is to remain hungry for success. I think you’re right. If one is desperate, then one NEEDS to find whatever works. Until it is a felt need, not much will be done about it. I like how answers arrive too. Glad you’re gaining more clarity!

      Best Regards,

  22. Number 10 is a huge one for me. I make a good attempt at enjoying the big things and the little things in life, and mainly that comes out in my love for travel and hiking. Not that I’ve got the habit of enjoying EVERY minute of my day down pat, but I do try 🙂
    Jeri recently posted…#WriteTip: Breaking Habits of SeeingMy Profile

    • Hi Jeri,
      You’re right. So many people postpone happiness, when they could be enjoying more every moment. I love travel and hiking the mountain beside us.
      I think another thing that keeps me inspired is having something to look forward to is my daughter’s wedding later this year. 😀

      All the best!

  23. Hey Bill,

    You know every time I go for a walk or even listening to music I get inspirations. Maybe the music helps me vibe with God himself, or maybe it’s just me being in rhythm with the environment. Either way it goes, I get my ideas from these walks and also when I get a lot depressed I tend to find myself connecting with Him and the depression goes away instantly. I then refocus on the things and people I enjoy.

    As far as the quotes you have, I would have to say #25 resonates with me a lot. I don’t explain love, and just practice it. There’s some people that want to hear from me, but I do believe that what I do gives meaning in and of itself!

    Great share Bill!
    Sherman Smith recently posted…Simple Way To Set Up Tracking For Your Sites’ PerformanceMy Profile

    • Hey Sherman,
      I’m listening to some pensive piano music as I write this reply. I find it deeply satisfying. Music not only inspires me, but because I am creative, it aligns me with my inner being. Whenever you’re down, redirect onto anything you know to be inspiring. 🙂

      All the best!

  24. Hi Bill: It’s funny you should post this at this time, as yesterday, I attended a Toastmasters mtg and the theme of our meeting was Inspiration. Attending Toastmasters is one of the best things to inspire you. The organizations draws positive people to it, and you always receive positive reinforcement for your efforts and contributions to the mtg. No Negative Nellies here.
    Doreen Pendgracs recently posted…chocolate dinners in the Community ClassroomMy Profile

    • Hi Doreen,
      I believe in serendipity, synchronicity and the miraculous! 🙂 I think Toastmasters is a wonderful way for people to gain confidence and inspiration for public speaking. Adds a whole new meaning to table talk, doesn’t it? 😉
      Have a beautiful day and upcoming weekend!

  25. I do love to be inspired Bill and luckily for me I haven’t had days like that in years. The only time I’ve been that down was when someone passed away. No amount of inspiring quotes will help me through that I’m afraid.

    #10 and #12 speak to me the most as I’m sure you probably guessed those. All of them are good and more on there that I resonate with but those two really stand out for me.

    Thank you Bill for sharing this and always inspiring us.

    Adrienne recently posted…How You Can Become A Blogging Rock StarMy Profile

    • Hi Adrienne,
      I think we all experience and interpret grief and loss uniquely, but I know what you mean. Losing a loved one, family of friend, is never easy – so I understand what you mean. While grief runs its course, it’s hard to even see straight, let alone feed on some inspiration.

      The truth is, everyone needs to make the most of this time we have.
      You’re very welcome Adrienne! Keep shining your light!

  26. My favorite one is 17. There is inspiration around us everyday, but a lot of people are to busy being in their own way to see the great things that are surrounding them. People tend to look for the sky to open up and have angels coming down for inspiration but while they are looking up for something great they miss the inspiring and magnificent smile from the stranger that they almost bumped into.
    Jay recently posted…Would You Stay With Someone Like YouMy Profile

    • Hi Jay,
      that’s a nice word picture you created, but you’re right. We live nestled among snow-capped mountains, pristine lakes and wetlands, have all kinds of animals and other majestic scenery to enjoy, yet many people drive by without ever noticing all the beauty.

      Take Care,

  27. From my childhood I was fond of making list of quotes. Still I read a lot from many great people from around the world.
    Inspiration is truly something important that comes to us by different people at different times or situations. We can be inspired by anything from nature to people.
    All quotes are very nice but for me Socrates and Dalia Lama quotes are best.

    Your posts are also an inspiration tome. I am also inspired as you mentioned that you always try to connect with the Creator having no one around… just you and Him. I wish this connection will be stronger and may He give us light to identify us and truths of this universe and inspire us to help others.
    it was a nice read.

    • Sorry typing mistake… your post is also inspirational one. ” tome ” is typed by mistake.
      andleeb recently posted…Mysterious MoguichengMy Profile

    • Greetings Andleeb,
      My apologies for the late reply. John Lennon once said, “Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans.”
      I think you’re right about that. At various times in our lives, some more than others, we need extra inspiration and encouragement. I find it fascinating what sort of things inspire people. Many time, soft instrumental music does it for me. I think alone time with God is very important every day. Thanks for the kind words, and we won’t concern ourselves about the typo.

      Kind Regards,

  28. Hi Bill,

    Anytime I come across such a post filled with lots of inspiration, I always take my time to read it.

    Thanks a lot Bill for this and do have a lovely day!

  29. Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present. ~ Jim Rohn
    My favorite! Although you’ve listed many favorites of mine…this resonates. I observe people every day who wait for happiness to fall upon them, rather than miking it for themselves in the right now. Beautiful post 🙂
    Jacqueline Gum (Jacquie) recently posted…Where’s The Justice….the IRS!My Profile

    • Hi Jacquie,
      Please accept my apology for the late reply. Jim Rohn has influenced and inspired so many people over the years. If you like more, I’ve compiled a free ebook Treasury of Jim Rohn Quotations available on my front page. When I think about that particular quote, my takeaway is that every moment, we have the opportunity, even right now, to create quality future memories. Glad you liked it. Thank you! 🙂

      Have a beautiful week!

  30. Hi Bill.

    Actually, I like all of these inspirational quotes. If I had to choose just one it would be “Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later. “~ Og Mandino

    Whenever I do something, I love to give it my all. From business to gardening, I know if I give it 100% of myself it just may work out fine. If not, then I have to go back and try to figure out what went wrong and try try again!

    • Hi Donna,
      I don’t know where last week went, but I’m finally catching up. My apologies for not responding sooner.
      I like the theme of planting and harvesting. It very much reminds me of James Allen’s writing in As A Man Thinketh.
      I agree with you. Anything worth doing, is worth doing right. The only real mistakes we can make are not learning from the error of our ways.

      Have a great week!
