Why Motivation is required to Reach Your Goals

By NolanGrayson, published on Jan 19, 2014

...life and every activity that we take on, aside from sleeping and watching television all day. In day-to-day life, it is important that we always maintain a level of motivation that keeps us going.

Motivation provides a spark. Motivation starts with a tiny spark that lights the fire of inspiration and discovery. It gets things started. Without motivation, even the most mundane of activities become difficult and anything beyond that becomes nearly impossible. It is possible to light a fire without a match but it takes a lot of work, commitment, and the chances of giving up without... (more)

Brilliant Lessons of Michelangelo

By Coach Phatty, published on Aug 2, 2013

I came across this little story about the famous artist Michelangelo written by Tom Russell (inspirational stories.com) that expressed a reminder to us how strong inspiration can be. When we are truly focused on things that we really want to do in our lives… we can do ANYTHING that we dream of doing.

The artist Michelangelo often stirred up the opposition of the contemporary artists of his day. Many of them envied his magnificent abilities. One example was the architect Bramante.

Pope Julius retained Michelangelo to build him a splendid tomb. Michelangelo gladly accepted... (more)

...The warmth of your sweet skin Only just beginning Never wanting it to end... With each stroke sweet emotion Leaving us wanting more Tell me what is hidden Behind this open door...

A portrait painted freely Each movement meant to be Etched into a snapshot Everlasting ecstasy...

The Sessions

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Mar 18, 2013

... him to see a therapist to talk this through. The therapist sets him up with a sexual surrogate.

I will not spoil this by telling you what happens, but it truly was a very heart warming movie...proving that love can happen in the most unlikely ways. His life was a beautiful inspiration , showing us that no matter the obstacles, a full life is possible.

Yes, it made me cry, but also I smiled knowing the beauty this man had created under such hard circumstances. I love that this is based on a true story. These were people that I truly wanted to connect... (more)

Your Place

By Uttam Gill, published on Sep 16, 2012

You are not an animated version…you are real flesh and blood. Tinker over this thought and take a bonanza of reasons for you to celebrate. Every reason of your existence is so valid that you can build your life with lots of happiness. As long as you understand this and act upon it humanly, you create an environment for yourself and others to relish life. No given scenario can take away the best in you, unless one tamely surrenders. Hold yourself and out rightly reject the cantankerous thoughts. Your constructive line of thoughts will axiomatically keep you glued to sanity. Come what may, never... (more)

Chunks 7% of our vision we really see?

By Jennifer Stone, published on Jul 13, 2012

We only see 7% of every 2 million parts per second that we actually "do see" -- we see a tree not just the leaves, stem or truck and then the branches.

Problems in life can be solved by breaking them down. Taking the chunks and moving through the tree or problem to see the leaves, the branches or even the twigs.

Many people have put books together about problem solving and our subconsious mind.

My theory: Automapping within everyone is created by what we need in our life the most. If our needs are so great our subconscious mind will map our direction in life to help... (more)

Ode to the month of June

By Cielo, published on Jun 25, 2012

I wish I could inhabit a place where I can be eternally delimited by the color green—warmth enveloping body and soul. I wouldn’t mind if humidity soaks the dust of this land I dream of; or if perhaps, it is the heat of the dessert what nurtures it… if only I could stretch out my arms and feel this freedom running through my veins all year around.

I live in the land of winds. I am a prisoner of ice; a fire moth trapped within frozen blaze-like fingers made of ice. Iciness and the rawness of a land that’s more accepting than I am. That’s where I shall dwell. If you look outside my... (more)

How to become a poet

By John Vespasian, published on Jun 24, 2012

If you wish to become a poet, I can give you some clues, but please take your heart medication before you read this through, since it contains some strong truths.First, you have to realize that nobody cares about what you want to be, so don't go around complaining that you are misunderstood. Artistic sensitivity is fine, but please keep it to yourself, since there is already too much noise in the world.Second, you should just start writing poetry and do not ask anyone for permission. If you do happen to ask someone for permission, you most likely won't even get a response. Again, it's... (more)

Go Ahead...You Can Make Your Dreams Come True

By Uttam Gill, published on Jun 22, 2012

When I was there you never saw me and when you found me you created pause of functional constraints. From the crowd, a face is picked up and the lane took me to the destination. When I knock the door, I just don’t get any answer and for long, I wait. When at sweet will, door is opened; the matter of familiarity becomes burden. I am not perplexed and neither confused. I know your clarification is not meant for my solace but rather sub consciously you address your own fear. Fear is not the key in this case; fear is a probing in most uncertain terms, not even knowing that why you are doing so.... (more)
