The Importance of Inspiration

Inspiration to use

Today I don’t want to talk about food.. “WHAT?” I didn’t get hit over the head or any thing like that; I just feel this is something I need to share with my readers (Especially the frequent visitors). I know many of you guys have the motivation to make the difference, but once that tank is empty your left very frustrated via some of the mails I get. My question to you today is who inspires you? If the answer is no one then why not?

 

The Importance

Every day, every minute and every second spent on this earth you have the ability of being inspired. It can flip your whole world upside down, or just simply keeping you on track to get to your goals. Even the dictionary defines it as “ The process of being mentally stimulated to do or to feel something, especially to do something creative”. That to me is priceless if somebody can have that effect on you in your own life, that is yet another way to fill your motivation right to the top!

Not just from people Inspiration can come from anything – Books, Places, Pets, Articles and Music. It can really be anything – anything you really can enjoy.

Which brings me to the point of being an inspiration; If you can be that for somebody else then you really know you got your act together! I would be honoured if somebody turned around and said “ You are my inspiration!”.

I believe that inspiration is a necessity in life. It brings so much joy and happiness not in a typical way, but yet so so effective. Nobody is perfect, I am not a believer in mistakes only lessons, and it’s how we grow into our best self’s. Mistakes to me makes it into a bad thing which it’s really not as we grow from it, so lessons sounds more positive in general than an actually mistake (to me).

 

So Who Inspires Me?

Good question (note to self) there are so many people to choose from! Most of mine are unfortunately deceased. Therefore I have decided to pick three that our currently still breathing, and our presently inspiring me daily.

 

Dhani Joshi

Dhani Joshi

First 3 Words That Spring To Mind- Gifted, Generous and Workaholic

 

Why Dhani Inspires Me- I can honestly say that he is the most open person I have ever met in my life. Which is such a nice trait to have because you can ask him anything, and he will always give you a sincere answer.

He is also a giver and I don’t just mean gifts! Time, Patience’s and understanding. Which really inspires me to be more of a giver and more of an open book to the world.

His work ethic also is amazing, and fills me up with inspiration every time I see or hear how well he is progressing in work and life in general. His spiritual side also inspires me, as he is so calm and laid back about it and none judgmental.

Lastly Something you guys will all see soon enough I am sure is his dreams, visions and ideas to better all of our life’s.. When I sit back and soak It all in I think to my self “wow he really is selfless” and I think we can all be inspired by that don’t you think?

 

What I Am Learning From Dhani Currently? – Not to overcomplicate things too much, grind a lot harder, Hinduism and philanthropy.

 

How can you learn from Dhani?- Go to his you Tube channel “Dhani Joshi.” There are plenty of videos that can be found of him giving away tons of value, he is into the home business industry ( making money online) so if that sounds appealing then even more reason to watch! But even if that is not up your street he has videos that we could all learn from, via life and improving oneself each and every day.

 

Floyd Mayweather

 

Main one to use

 

First 3 Words That Spring To Mind- Supreme, Athlete and Leader

 

Why Floyd Inspires Me? – Floyd Mayweather inspires me for so many reasons. For e.g. Olympic Bronze Medallist 1996 (We all know it’s really gold though), Five- Division world champion, Undefeated as a pro boxer 47-0, The richest athlete in sports, Not a single endorsement deal to his name, and the pound for pound greatest boxer in the world today!

As a boxing fan just that alone is incredible. I am struggling to think of another sportsmen who is nearly 40 and not only killing it, but at the top of the mountain in peak condition.

Aside from his actually Boxing ability, I am more inspired by his entrepreneurial side. Floyd has aligned himself with all the right people such as Al Haymon (Floyd’s advisor) and Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions.

He seems able to strike up deals like at the MGM Grand Arena, which sees him, net around $ 3.5milon (maybe even more) and the best part is he is able to raise the revenue plus get nearly all of it to himself, which is not common at all In world of boxing/sports period.

The Mayweather module is very inspiring to me because it shows you can always do more, in his case a lot more to evolve things to new heights that the world is yet to see.

TMT “ The Money Team” is his own brand, which distributes apparel. He promotes tirelessly and that also inspires me as I am working on my own brand myself.

What inspirer’s me the most about him is his big personality, strong leadership, his hard work & dedication even after winning/ earning so much for so long and although he gets a lot of hate, he never hates back. Also when he enters a building everybody takes note, and listens to his words of wisdom. I understand that a lot of people do not like Floyd at all! For reason including: To arrogant and all he cares about is the money.

I see past the exterior. I can tell the difference between the “Character” Floyd Mayweather & the “Real” Floyd Mayweather, I think a lot of people get confused with the two sometimes. Floyd is a family man at heart.

He loves his family a lot especially his kids Jirah, Koraun, Zion and Lyanna. All about the money? Couldn’t be further from the truth! Loyalty to his team is yet another reason among many of what inspires me about him, I could go on further but it’s getting a tad too long lol!

 

What I Am Learning From Floyd Currently?Mainly I thought I knew what it took to be dedicated to something. That you really love a while ago, and to put in hard work each and everyday.. BUT I WAS WRONG!

Although I am no boxer, his hard work and dedication to his boxing/ business to me is second to none.

That’s something that can only push me and motivate me further; I am not the type of guy to be stunned by the glitz and glamour, neither to hate nor say spiteful things. Just because he has a lot of money and he likes to show it (for me it’s no problem at all).

The way he has been able to set up all this wealth for himself, and his family makes me happy and keeps me motivated. As it shows what is possible if you keep on putting in the work.

Some others would include: How to self promote better, Understanding the bigger picture in business, being fearless and that hard work and dedication! (In fitness and Business)

 

How can you learn from Floyd?- I have an article that I read explaining more in- depth about how Floyd operates in business (Click Here) other than that just watch the great man at work both in and out of the ring, there are many lessons to learn from somebody I am proud to call my mentor.

 

Vanessa Hudgens

Back Up to use

First 3 Words That Spring To Mind- Adventurous, Hilarious and Contagious

 

Why Vanessa Inspires Me? – I feel I can relate to Vanessa in so many ways. Her mindset and how she approaches things in life. Nothing really seems to faze her much; Vanessa is an all action girl always taking risks to better herself, as she understands that in order to grow you must get out of your comfort zone.

Vanessa for someone so talented & successful is a very humble individual, with her own thoughts, dreams and ideas that she is never afraid to share. I love how hard she works for everything! Especially when setting up goals for herself and how she works on attaining them, just inspires me.

Vanessa I can see has a lot of gratitude (which is wonderful to see) for all the blessings in her life, and is still close- knit to her family, love bugs and friends.

For nearly over a year now Vanessa has inspired me to try out different things in my life, that I would never of imagined doing. So many things spring to mind but to name one Yoga.

I use to scoff at it, then I got inspired by her to give it a go and now.. I absolutely love it! I cannot imagine my life without it now; Yoga has helped me so much with my Posture, flexibility, balance, focus and peace of mind. She gave me some ideas for meditation also, and Iv never looked back Namaste Vanessa 🙂

But the thing that inspires me the most about Vanessa is her way with words. Her way with words really connect with me deeply, I feel really uplifted when I hear her talk.

Examples: “ Push away the negativity. Let your soul walk into the light. We start a new week. Lets surprise ourselves and become one with all”.

“God has big plans for you. Miracles are waiting right beyond the point of giving up. Be willing. Be the best you”.

“Look inwards. Awaken your dreams. What do you see when you close your eyes? Dream. Risk. Create.” & “Nothing is real except the present. If you’re worrying about the future, it’s completely irrelevant because it hasn’t happened yet. And the past there’s no need to dwell on that, either” (You see what I mean so trill).

I also believe that she is a strong leader in many ways, but is made out to be an attention seeking airhead from the media, which is not true. As somebody once told me People put leaders at the top of the pyramid. Really, they are at the bottom. Holding everyone up, inspiring others. That’s a real leader.. and that is Vanessa Hudgens.

 

What I Am Learning From Vanessa Currently?– Yoga techniques like the standing bow (which she does so well), new areas to go hiking in. Like Na Pali coast state park, in Hawaii and Griffith observatory hike in Los Angeles. All the info on Gigi (iv got to see that on Broadway)

Books to read such as “The Tibetan book of living and dying” by Sogyal Rinpoche and “Exploring the world of Lucid Dreams” by Stephen LaBerge. Lastly just all the things that make Vanessa a really special person, she’s so contagious! All her goodness rubs of on you in the end.

 

How can you learn from Vanessa?- You can go and check out her Tumblr account: (Click Here). Or equally If you would like to know anything about her or have any questions then go to “The Official Vanessa Hudgens team” based in NYC- (Click here) it’s the place to go to, they are responsive and very welcoming. They also provide news, updates & more (Ok that part I read in the bio XD).

 

So Who Inspires You?

We’ve heard enough about who inspires me; now I would love to hear from you! Who inspires you? Make sure you leave a comment below letting us know who it is and how they inspired you, and what if anything you are learning from them currently 🙂

 

I really appreciate you guys. This was much longer than I intended, but my heart wouldn’t let me stop lol.. until next time Ciao.

    I am inspired by Narendra Modi. He is a very good man who has been a PM. His regular hard work made him achieve his goals. He not only look for him but he look for whole nation. He is a good orator.

    I learn from him how to face difficult situation and how to speak a good speech. I also want to serve India but not by becoming PM but by becoming a good citizen.

    Right now it’s Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. He started the company at 19 even they he admittedly “did not know” what he was doing in many cases. It’s taken less than a decade for them to become one of the world’s best companies. If a Harvard drop-out can do something great. I can, too.

    Elon Musk – This man is a great mix of a dreamer and a do-er. SpaceX, Tesla, PayPal, outlandish and a pioneer in each of the industries and he pulled it off.

    Tim Ferris – He has such a can-do attitude that just listening to him forces you to get up and do something.

    Many more who I have forgotten… Inspiration is fleeting anyway.

    He was from humble background, lost nearly all elections in US Democracy and faced problem on personal front also.

    Still he went on to become the President of his country and that too one of the greatest. Whenever I face any problem or failure, a thought of him and his life gives strength.

    JK Rowling inspires me. She followed her heart and passion for writing even when she was as poor as you can possibly be without being homeless, a single mother and suffering from depression. How far she has got from that to today is a wonderful example of how all of us can achieve what we want, no matter what happens along the way and as long as we persist and stick at it!

    I am inspired by my mother as she raised 4 children while doing job and also took great care of her in-laws. She is inspiration for every girl/person who find difficulty in maintaining her in-laws, children and job.

    She taught me with hard work and dedication we can achieve anything and also taught me to respect our elders even if you become successful don’t forget your roots from where you came.

    I actually think Russell Brand is someone I look up to, for someone that has beaten addiction and speaks so candidly about what it’s like to struggle with it. I love his realness, and that he addresses addiction publicly so well – awareness is a huge thing to overcome the stigma that addiction still faces!

    Aamir Khan has inspired me a lot. The reasons being because he always wants to think outside the box, wow everyone with someone new, and most importantly send a message to the people. But he does this whenever he makes a movie, and maybe he tries to do in his regular life. I know it sounds a bit weird to say, but those are the three things that I feel are most inspiring. Instead of looking at what other people have done and try to semi-copy what they have done in their work, he makes something that is entirely original and worth seeing. And his works are pure art to me, and inspire me the most.
