Whether at work, education or home we all need to be inspired at some point. Inspirational messages can be placed around an office or a classroom and even on a poster at home. You may have a favorite author or musician who writes lines that inspire. Within this context are categories for inspiration such as leadership, romance and philosophical. You can also send these messages by email, letters or texts to inspire someone about whom you care.
Finding Inspirational Messages
Inspirational messages can come from religious sources, famous authors or politicians, musicians and actors. Your best friend may say something that hits the spot if you are feeling down. Wherever the message comes from, if it lifts and inspires it has done the trick. "Well done is better than well said" by Benjamin Franklin or "A promise is a cloud; fulfillment is rain" an Arabian proverb or even "There are some among us who think that life is but a joke" by Bob Dylan, can be inspirational. "And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make" by The Beatles is a truism. These are all inspirational in their own way but from very different areas.
If you a teacher, these messages can be put up as posters around the walls of the classroom. Good inspirational messages will make your class think, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world," a quote from Nelson Mandela, could be discussed as part of a lesson. "Teamwork divides the task and multiplies the success," by an unknown author, may inspire more effort working in group. "In waking a tiger, use a long stick." by Mao Zedong may require explanation, but is quite amusing, too.
In business, especially in sales, inspirational messages posted around the room or spoken to you by the manager can help to inspire you to carry on. "Smile while you dial", "The customer is King" and "Success by the inch is a cinch, failure by the yard is hard" are all positive messages about selling. An inspired message from Albert Einstein, "Not everything that can be counted counts and not everything that counts can be counted" is one to really make people think about their values.
"It takes hands to build a house but only hearts to build a home" is an inspirational message by an unknown author. "Home is an invention of which no one has yet improved" by Ann Douglas says it all. You can embroider these messages and frame them to hang on a wall or use them as a pillow cover.
