Daily Quotes: Inspire Personal Goal Setting

Daily Goal Setting

 is an integral part of any successful routine because it allows us to weigh and analyze just where we stand on a day-to-day basis. Since it’s easy to lose sight of our long-term goals, especially when dealing with the millions of distractions in our lives, daily goal setting allows us to stay on track and on point. Reference

There are four reasons why thinking about daily routines can help us reach our goals:

1. Action: Daily goals force us to think in terms of concrete action steps, rather than just lofty goals. For example, committing to write every day, even if it’s just a page or a paragraph or two, is better than just having a big goal to write a novel. Goals can’t be pie in the sky – something you’ll never do. The basic idea is to get you moving toward your goal on a daily basis.

2. Prioritization: There is a limit to the number of daily goals you can realistically accomplish. That’s a good thing because it forces us to decide what really matters. Clear out the clutter and isolate what it is you really want to accomplish. The longer your list, the less likely you’ll accomplish any of them. Concentrate on no more than four daily goals at a time.

3. Mini-goals: Daily goals must be limited in time. We can’t have three daily goals that each take an hour. It’s not realistic. Yet mini-goals are powerful when repeated daily. They can related to your finances, health, relationships, or any area of your life. Because mini-goals are doable, you increase the likelihood of accomplishing them and making progress toward larger goals.

4. Routine: We accomplish big things by consistently doing small things every day. The key then is to convert your mini-goals into daily habits.

If you’re actually talking to someone who’s been through a disastrous number of years, that only means one thing: They survived it.

Nicole Ari Parker

I think there is little harm in venting here and there about things, as we are all human, and it is good to express emotions.

Michelle Gielan

Writing lets you step back and think through a problem. Even the angriest rant forces the writer to achieve a degree of thoughtfulness.

Tuesday Thoughts of the Day

In 1999, I was a long-term substitute instructional aide for an elementary school here in town. My life changed one day when I experienced this sharp pain running up & down my leg. I did not think anything else of it, but as time passed the pain became unbearable. I finally went to the doctor & they said it as old arthur, but I knew that was impossible.  So, they eventually referred me to another doctor.

I had to eventually leave my job because I discovered I had a herniated disk down by my tailbone that was pinching the main nerve. This was the kind of pain that is so torturing & indescribable that I would never wish that type of TORTURE on anyone.

Are You Willing To Talk?

Always changing furniture around in my house, I bent down the wrong way which lead me to be disabled at the age of 27, walking with the aid of a walker & a crooked back. Anyway, I was on disability from 2002 to 2007. During this disruptive time in my young life I developed psychogenic seizures that are caused by a traumatic event. If you want to learn more about Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures (PNES) <<<<Click Here<<<<

The doctors said they were of the mind because I was not releasing what was really happening to my body through my mind, so my body decided to release it for me. I was holding on to what was going on because I just did not understand. After being pulled, poked, & prodded by the physical therapist, and any other procedures the doctors referred I had to have surgery December 6, 2001.

Holding on to your thoughts, not taking deep breaths & just letting that SHIT go can cause some serious medical issues. I have been through the eye of the hurricane & weathered the storm, so trust me I AM HERE TO LISTEN.

Monday Pictures


Motivation Monday Quote

“Whatever your situation might be, set your mind to whatever you want to do and put a good attitude in it, and I believe that you can succeed.” –Bethany Hamilton

Motivation Monday: Inspirational Short Story About Life

Did you know that an eagle can foresee when a storm is approaching long before it breaks?

Instead of hiding, the eagle will fly to some high point and wait for the winds to come.

When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind can pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle soars above it.

The eagle does not escape or hide from the storm instead it  uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the stormy winds which others dread.

When the storm of life or challenges hit us, we can rise above them and soar like the eagle which ride the winds of the storm. Don’t be afraid of the storms or the challenges in your life. Use it to lift you higher in your life.

Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don’t waste it with a false start or no start at all.

Hustler: Positive Thoughts to Start the Day

How you start is important, very important, but in the end it is how you finish that counts. It is easier to be a self-starter than a self-finisher. The victor in the race is not the one who dashes off swiftest but the one who leads at the finish. In the race for success, speed is less important than stamina. The sticker outlasts the sprinter in life’s race. In America we breed many hares but not so many tortoises.

B. C. Forbes

Self-Starter: Inspirational Quotes to Start the Day at Work

Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.

Susan Sontag

What the carburetor, sparkplug and self-starter are to an automobile, initiative, private enterprise and executive ability are to industry as a whole, including the wage earner, wage payer, wage spender and wage saver, i.e., the investor. If the sparkplug and self-starter get out of commission, the car will come to a standstill.
William J. H. Boetcker

To maximize our lives we think that we should get up and join in the race. Yet, we rarely consider that maybe it’s less about joining a race and more about actually creating one.”

Proverbs 20:4 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Some people are too lazy to plant seeds. So at harvest time, they look for food and find nothing.

Proverbs 13:4 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Psalm 23 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

A song of David.

He restores my strength.
    He leads me on right paths[b] to show that he is good.

    I will not be afraid of any danger, because you are with me.

You prepared a meal for me in front of my enemies.
    You welcomed me as an honored guest.[e]
    My cup is full and spilling over.
Your goodness and mercy will be with me all my life,
    and I will live in the Lord’s house[f] a long, long time.[g]

Self-Esteem & The Importance for Dignity


Self-Esteem:I Love Me

Photo Credit

Self-Esteem is very important for your dignity in any occasion or situation. I am not a professional, or an expert about anyone other than the information I provide for myself. As an illustration, self-regard is a well known topic with several theories.  Of course, always consult a professional for any medical needs. On the contrary, my self-assurance has always been very high and this post is being shared with an intent to Inspire & Motivate.

“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.”
― Harvey Fierstein

How To Build Self-Esteem?


Affirmations Photo Credit

Self-Esteem is how you feel about yourself as a person. It can also be known as self-worth or pride you have in yourself. To put it differently, an example that may destroy your pride is: If you are on your job and a new clique of friends come along, now they are all up for a promotion and you are booted out of the equation. Or Not?

Most note worthy, another key point is that self-care is how confident you are in your own worth or abilities. On the positive side, how much self-respect do you have for yourself.

“In youth, it was a way I had,
To do my best to please.
And change, with every passing lad
To suit his theories.

But now I know the things I know
And do the things I do,
And if you do not like me so,
To hell, my love, with you.”
― Dorothy Parker, The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker

Self-Confidence Questions People Often Ask?



  • How do you define confidence?
  • How do I improve my worth?
  • What is low self-esteem?

“That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending – performing. You get to love your pretence. It’s true, we’re locked in an image, an act – and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you’re trying to steal their most precious possession.”
― Jim Morrison

How do you define self-improvement?



From a psychological perspective, self-satisfaction describes the comprehensive awareness of a person’s self-worth or personal value.

For students, the dictionary defines self-esteem as his or her own abilities to have feelings of satisfaction for himself or herself.

“Every woman that finally figured out her worth, has picked up her suitcases of pride and boarded a flight to freedom, which landed in the valley of change.”
― Shannon L. Alder

How do I improve my self-esteem?



 Tips for Improving yourself

  1. Let’s try to focus on what affects your self-esteem.
  2. Any negative self-talk can’t be in your vocabulary.
  3. Make a true connection with people who love you.
  4. Always be assertive in your daily surroundings.
  5. Try to initiate a monthly challenge (30 days) to positively impact your vanity.
  6. The primary focus should always be positive thinking.
  7. The ultimate goal is to always put yourself before others.
  8. In addition, feel free to reach out to your nearest support sysyems in your city.

“Dare to love yourself
as if you were a rainbow
with gold at both ends.”
― Author-Poet Aberjhani, Journey through the Power of the Rainbow: Quotations from a Life Made Out of Poetry

  5. Eating Disorders
  6. Physicial Self Abuse
  7. Stresses about Other’s Opinion

“How would your life be different if…You stopped allowing other people to dilute or poison your day with their words or opinions? Let today be the day…You stand strong in the truth of your beauty and journey through your day without attachment to the validation of others”
― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

Ways to Boost Your Self-Esteem

In conclusion, pride in oneself is important because it has an influence on several aspects of our lives just to cope with society. Conducting a thorough research on the internet can offer you great ideas on how to enhance it.

“Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth.”
― Iyanla Vanzant

Therapy Worksheets Related to Self-Esteem

Be Inspired & Motivated!

“As long as you look for someone else to validate who you are by seeking their approval, you are setting yourself up for disaster. You have to be whole and complete in yourself. No one can give you that. You have to know who you are – what others say is irrelevant.”
― Nic Sheff

“If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.”―H.G. Wells

Affirmation: Create Your Own Positive Statement Today

Affirmation: Create Your Own Today

Affirmation Outlook: In general, the greatest benefit of Affirmations is to use them in the mornings. Although this maybe true, if you are not a morning person you are more than welcome to use them in the afternoon or in the evening hours of the day. Incorporate morning affirmations into your daily routines. We are aiming to remain positive throughout the entire day.

As a matter of fact, what is an affirmation?

To emphasize, they are statements designed to reinforce a positive change in people who desire it and yet can adapt in their environment. It should always be stated as if the desired outcome either has already occurred or is in the process of occurring, not as something that will come about in the future.
