The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.—Alice Walker
When we stop identifying ourselves as victims we are victorious, unstoppable, and invincible. We demonstrate to the world and ourselves our worthiness. Imagine what would happen to the world if all women everywhere stopped feeling like victims? Our world would definitely be a better place.
There are many lessons we can employ to inspire and motivate us. One of the quickest, and my favorite, is to read an inspiring quotation and sit for a moment thinking about it. Give a moment to each of these inspiring quotations and see if they help motivate you to create your best future.
Today’s decisions are tomorrow’s realities.
Remember you have three choices: Take it, leave it or change it.
—Marsha Petrie Sue
Fear can manifest in many different ways. Sometimes it’s even so well disguised that we call it something else. For instance, have you ever used one of these crutches: waiting, explaining, doubting, or remaining in your comfort zone? Don’t let fear keep your life from progressing. Progression is a journey that leads to accomplishment, to moving on, to developing a better you, a better life.
Our individual definitions of respect have as many shapes and colors as there are women. Every woman instinctively senses what respect feels like in our bodies and souls. The mystery is how can this be when some women seldom feel respected by anyone around them? Do we know respect in the coding of our souls? Or do we know respect because we know denigration, condescension, abuse, and tolerance so well? Feeling respected by those around us may be elusive, and will be more forthcoming the more we respect ourselves. The more we value ourselves, the more we are perceived as having value.
Inside relationships it’s important to first understand who’s coming into the relationship, and not just your partner. You need to understand yourself first.

Change Your Thoughts and Your Life Using this Powerful Tool
Do you want your life to be different? Do you wonder how to create changes in your life? Have you ever attempted to shift your life, your perception of you, and not known exactly how to go about it?
The Law of Attraction is one of the most powerful tools to use when you want to change your reality. The Law of Attraction, or the Boomerang Law as some know it, is one of the most powerful ways to make the changes you desire in your perceptions of your life, of yourself, and of all that is available to you.
The Law of Attraction simply states that which we breathe into the world is that which we bring back to us multifold. And yes, this is a rather simple explanation for one of the most powerful laws of the Universe, and yet, it is just this simple. The challenge is that we do not tend to monitor our thoughts or our breaths!
Don’t Let the Good Girl Image Keep You From Your Spiritual, Intellectual and Emotional Fulfillment
Good is towing the line, being behaved, being quiet, being passive, fitting in, being liked; and great is being messy, having a belly, speaking your mind, standing up for what you believe in, fighting for another paradigm, not letting people talk you out of what you know to be true.
— Eve Ensler
The desire to be a “good” girl is still deeply ingrained in all of us. Imagine all the energy we use to make ourselves sexier, more adorable, skinnier, and more successful. Then, imagine instead using all that energy to make a difference in our world! Now imagine all the money we would save if we directed our finances toward what we believe in rather than making ourselves over. What stops us from exploring our passions?
I’ve faced so many difficult life situations myself—healing from sexual abuse and family dysfunction, divorce, having my leg amputated as a child, facing race and gender discrimination, learning to be a Mom, home-schooling, and more. I’m passionate about using the research and information that is out there because I know it made a difference for me.
Even when moments are positive and beneficial, there is something about our current culture that seems to layer on stress for most of us. How we each deal with stress and stressful times defines the quality of our lives and our life experience.
If you find that you are dealing with a great deal of stress; if you find that you awaken each morning wondering what else is going to happen to create an even more difficult life experience, you most likely are not using the tenants and reaping the benefits of optimizing The Law of Attraction.
Like any building, your life requires a foundation. Have you ever considered the foundation you’ve built? You began building your foundation when you were very young. Your foundational beliefs, the ones you absorbed during childhood, are now running your life, invisibly and insidiously. Is this what’s best for you?
Motivation and inspiration have important differences. Knowing how to notice these differences and how to steer yourself in your desired direction can be important in your life.
Many of you are familiar with the rise of interest in the Goddess in modern times. You know that a parallel to this enthusiasm is a revival of interest in the ancient symbol of Gaia, the primal Greek goddess who personifies Earth.
Today our lives are busy—the chaos and debris of daily life challenges our calm. The stream of information coming to us leaves us feeling that the world is becoming too complex for us to handle.
I suggest that we do have a resource immediately available to us, the one from whom we drew our first breath. I’m not exactly talking about prayer, although prayer is helpful to many. I’m talking about accessing the power of the Goddess, our mother Earth, through visualization.
At this point in your life it matters little what event or events caused you to create the belief, what matters is whether or not you want to retain each separate belief—whether or not the belief supports you by allowing the law of attraction to create the life you desire.
Mare showed us a woman proud to be a cancer survivor but not defined by the illness she had survived, not once, but 3 times.

The mother-child relationship involves intense emotions and expressions ranging from tender, caring and nurturing, to playful and creative, to fierce mama-bear protectiveness that seems unreasonably heightened when the child is a daughter. Above all, the parent wishes for a successful, happy child who grows up to be a successful, happy, well-adjusted adult.
I invite you to look inside your own heart. What do you see? Is it full of pain, darkness and lack, or are you filled with peace, joy, happiness and love? If you’re looking to transition to the higher energetic frequencies of light and peace, it seems especially important to start your day with inspiration.
Learn who you are by playing a simple “What if” game.
Have you ever felt like you’re stuck in big-girl pants, and no matter how hard you’ve tried, you can’t get rid of them—for good? In fact, you can’t figure out how you’ve allowed yourself to get stuck in those darn pants in the first place.
Have you ever felt that you’re spinning your wheels in some area of your life? What if you had a method to break free of all the sticky mud and burst through any invisible ceilings?
At the tender age of 25 I hadn’t experienced a whole lot outside of the Military. Every door I knocked on was quickly closed. I had no idea of what I wanted to do until an unexpected encounter showed me the possibilities.
No matter what you think you should have done, or wish you learned, you didn’t get to where you are by accident. You did something to arrive where you are, and often that something is by not doing anything. If you aren’t living your ideal life there is only one explanation: Somewhere along the way, you lost your self, and you haven’t asked for directions.
When I was asked to write this article on How to Get Motivated to Exercise, I assumed everyone knows the textbook answer as to why we should exercise. Exercise is my career and passion so I know what I think, but I wondered what others are thinking. So, I emailed my clients and students in various exercise classes and asked them 2 simple questions. I thought I’d share the results with you.
I have found a word that helps me visualize in a carefree manner, causing my negative thinking to turn to positive thinking. Problems are perceived through a more desirable filter.
