Motivational Sayings – How to Guarantee the Inspiration Lasts!

Motivational Sayings – How to Guarantee the Inspiration Lasts!

We all love motivational sayings. They stir the blood, get our minds thinking, and cause us to dream big!

Through the years, famous authors, poets, religious figures, military leaders, and business tycoons have passed along sayings that hint at what it takes to succeed. We love them. We devour them. We quote them. And they do have great value.

Yet, can you name a motivational phrase that has single-handedly changed your life?

Be honest … do they really do you any good? Does the inspiration last? Usually not. Is there a way to ensure that you benefit from them? I’m going to give you a tip … one simple strategy that works for me and I know will work for you.

A Story About: “How to Win Friends and Influence People”

Some time back I took a course based upon the works of Dale Carnegie who wrote the hugely popular and enduring book called “How to Win Friends and Influence People”. The goal of the course was to inspire us to greater accomplishment, primarily through confident public speaking.

Full of inspiration and motivation, the book was central to the curriculum. You might say it was the Bible to everyone in attendance. It’s all about success in life and business. Each class, in addition to our speeches, we had to quote something from the book and tell the other students how these teachings benefited us in our lives.

A Lesson in Motivation

In my observations of the students in the class, I was struck by their lack of belief and passion. It was obvious to me that no one was going to make a quantum leap forward. And the course was chock full of motivational sayings! “What gives here?” I thought to myself.

I thought of my business and my clients. As a home building coach, working with all types of people over the years, I learned one big thing … you can’t get someone to do what they don’t want to do.

My clients came to me with one goal in mind; to build or remodel a home. I learned quickly that unless they held a passion for this, they would not make a good client because their chances of success were miniscule.

But, didn’t the students sign up for this class? Surely they wanted to succeed. Perhaps, but, succeed at what? Most of them had a loose goal of something like: “okay, this course should help me improve a little”. That doesn’t cut it if you really want a change.

The Shocking Finale

As the course neared its conclusion, I realized what was missing for them and became inspired to share the lesson I learned from my business and clients. I wanted them to know that success doesn’t come from inspiration and motivation alone.

I was the last speaker on the final night of the course. I had developed my message but could I get their attention? “And now, ladies and gentlemen, let’s hear from Mel Inglima!” my turn, I was ready …

Standing if front of the audience, holding the “bible” (How to Win Friends and Influence People”) high above my head for all to see, I ceremoniously but irreverently tossed it into the trash! You could have heard a pin drop!

Success and Change Must Come From Deep Wants

As the audience stared in disbelief, I proclaimed that the book was BS and simply full of motivational quotes, inspirational stories, and sayings that stirred us for a moment but wouldn’t make a difference in our lives. I wish you could have seen the bulging eyes of the instructor in the back of the room.

But, I went on to explain that all of these words and thoughts came from someone else’s wants, someone else’s mission, someone else’s passion! The key was to take ownership.

You gotta want it. Like the lesson I learned from my experiences with my clients, the results you want come only when your goal is clear. Single minded focus on what you want must be the first step.

Your Guarantee of Success

Just like the saying “God helps those who help themselves”, I have found that inspiration and motivation work only when it comes from a deep wanting. But, there’s a trick.

To guarantee that those sayings you love so much bring the success you seek, you have to re-craft them. Make them yours. Own the goal and own the phrase. Reformulate the phrase into your own words and include your very specific goal. Remember, it’s not someone else’s dream you’re after and it’s not someone else’s emotion that will drive you.

When you fully accept and understand this, you’ll know why motivational phrases alone don’t last. And you’ll know exactly what to do to turn the tide.

Mel Inglima, owner of Dream Home Creation,, has spent his life helping people build and remodel their homes, invest and manage their money, and make decisions that have a profound effect on their lives and futures. His work gives him unique insights into what it takes to succeed in life.

20 Inspirational New Years Eve Quotes and Sayings to Close 2013 With

Another year is almost over and a new one full of luck and excitement is coming. Whether you are planning to attend or hold a party, say goodbye to the old and welcome the New Year with following inspirational quotes and sayings. Let’s read on to spread the joy and cheer around.

“It’s officially New Years Eve! You have less than 24hrs to do all the bad things that you’ll resolve not to do in the new year.”

“Here’s to the bright New Year and a fond farewell to the old; here’s to the things that are yet to come and to the memories that we hold.”

“New Year’s eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights.”

“An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.”

“The proper behavior all through the holiday season is to be drunk. This drunkenness culminates on New Year’s Eve, when you get so drunk you kiss the person you’re married to.”

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”

“I would say happy new year but it’s not happy; it’s exactly the same as last year except colder.”

“Didn’t people call New Year’s the loneliest night on the calender? She took comfort in knowing somewhere on the planet, someone might be as miserable as she was.”

“Happy New Years Eve! I want you to kiss me at 11:59 and not finish that kiss until 12:01. I’d have a perfect ending & a perfect beginning.”

“The Old Year has gone. Let the dead past bury its own dead. The New Year has taken possession of the clock of time. All hail the duties and possibilities of the coming twelve months!”

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”

“Your Merry Christmas may depend on what others do for you. But your Happy New Year depends on what you do for others.”

“Cheers to you, cheers to me. Have a Happy New Year’s eve!”

“On this New Year, be someone you yourself can admire.”

“From New Year’s on the outlook brightens; good humor lost in a mood of failure returns. I resolve to stop complaining.”

“Never ever raise a toast for those deeds which you do for yourself, raise a toast to something which you do for others. Make it happen. Happy new Year.”

“The only way to spend New Year’s Eve is either quietly with friends or in a brothel. Otherwise when the evening ends and people pair off, someone is bound to be left in tears.”

“Of all sound of all bells… most solemn and touching is the peal which rings out the Old Year. “

“Each New Year, we have before us a brand new book containing 365 blank pages. Let us fill them with all the forgotten things from last year—the words we forgot to say, the love we forgot to show, and the charity we forgot to offer.”

“Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.”

Sad love quotes and sayings for lonely hearts

Sad love quotes and sayings for lonely hearts

Sad Love Quotes “Some people believe that holding on and hanging in there are signs of strength. However, there are times in life in which it takes much more strength to just let go.”


Sad Quotes Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of withering, of tarnishing.


When love is lost, do not bow your head in sadness; instead keep your head up high and gaze into heaven for that is where your broken heart has been sent to heal


Love can make you happy but often times it hurts, but love is only special when you give it to who its worth.


I always knew I would look back on my tears and laugh; but I never knew I would look back at my laughter and cry.


Love is gone and my heart is a bird, that has lost direction mid-flight.


Sad love quotes – “It’s a long road when you face the world alone, when no one reaches out a hand for you to hold. You can find love if you search within your soul, and the emptiness you felt will disappear.”


The greatest pain that comes with love is loving someone you can’t have.


For of all sad words of tongue or pen, The saddest are these: ‘It might have been!’


The pain of having a broken heart is not so much as to kill you, yet not so little as to let you live.


Everyone always says there are more fish in the sea… but sometimes you just really want bass


Quotes – The greatest distance on earth is not north and south, it is when I am right in front of you and you do not know that I love you.


Pain hardens, and great pain hardens greatly, whatever the comforters say, and suffering does not ennoble, though it may occasionally lend a certain rigid dignity of manner to the suffering frame.


The hardest part of loving someone is knowing when to let go, and knowing when to say goodbye.


Why must a heart break? Why must a tear drop? ….and why did I forget where I was going with this quote?


Hearts will never be made practical until they are made unbreakable.


Sad quotes – Love is blind, but your best friend can see right through you.

Looking for the latest internet sms love …? Human beings have always had difficulties to express what they feel for another person, present times allowed the appearance of the Internet and the cell phone and, with them, the chance of sending an e – mail or SMS that might help us expressing what we felt without blushing, without stuttering and without forgetting what we practiced.

Sometimes words are not sufficiently forceful to manage expressing our deepest feelings; let’s face it, some of us are extremely nervous to be clear and have our ideas in order, but a message, an e – mail or an SMS to that special person, helps us to gaining affection and to demonstrate care.

In the following lines, some love messages, for which the wished result is guaranteed, as long as you are honest and pertinent in the occasion :

:: There is nothing to which I could compare your love with, you have become my whole  life. I know I am constantly wrong, but if I am sure about something is that with you, this  world is paradise. Today I tell you that there is no one more important than you to me.
Category : Love messages for that special person

:: I try to think about love words to tell you and every night I send a love wish to be with  you, because I do not know what yo have done with my life, but what I do know is that I  want more every day. You should know that whenever I think of you, I cannot get anymore  sleep, not sleeping scares me, but I comfort myself knowing that your love is as much as  mine; because i do not need from anyone else, I know I am in love with you.
Category : Love messages for that special person

:: I needed a moment to notice you, an hour to like you, I took me a day to care about you  like I have never cared for anyone else, and I have been mi whole life loving you without  wanting to forget you. I think it is true that when love knocks your door, it changes  inexplicable things, which are why I need no reasons to believe that our relationship is like  the best wine: it just keeps getting better.
Category : Love messages for that special person

:: Love is completely inexplicable, extremely easy to feel and consummately impossible to  forget. This is why I love you not for who you are, but for who I am when you are with me.  You have changed my dictionary; I thought that happiness was a 9 letter word, now I see  that it has only three: YOU.
Category : Love messages for that special person

:: Love had no significance to me until I met you. Love had no face until I saw you. Love is  a synonym for your name. Love, synthesizing it, IS YOU.
Summing it up, the message implies that there is the chance of taking a phrase, a poem or a some part of a song and turn it ours to tell the loved person how much we love him or her and how much he or she means in our life, without been scared of been wrong.
