What Keeps Me Going

My daily inspiration and motivation


What is inspiration? Inspiration is the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something. Everyone in this world needs some type of inspiration or motivation to encourage them to keep moving forward in life. Whether it is from family, friend, and a celebrity or even from someone you do not even know.  Motivation is the fuel for my mind. I need to know all the time that what I am doing in life is making someone proud and that I should keep up the good work.  The greatest people in this world needed and used some type of inspiration to make their dream come to past. As for me, my favorite quote is from the beautiful Audrey Hepburn.  She simply said “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!”

I interpret this quote by saying no matter what I do in life, nothing is too hard for me to accomplish. As long as I try and I do not give up then I can do it. I am always quick to tell myself I will not be able to do something or I amnot good enough.  But when I read this quote it reminds me that I am capable to do anything I put my mind to. Giving up is not the answer in life. It takes you nowhere and it sometimes makes you feel like you are a failure. I am not a failure nor do I like to give up. I know I can accomplish whatever I want in life.

Also , this quote said by the glamorous  Marilyn Monroe tells me that fear is not an option. She said, “Fear is stupid. So are regrets.” Fear and regret are honestly the worst feelings to have. Many people in the world fear lots of things. I can say for myself I have a fear of spiders and roller coasters. I also have regrets of not reaching my full potential with everything that I do. This quote means a lot to me as well. With fear and regret how am I supposed to reach my full potential in life and make my dreams come true?  So it is important to overcome fears and dismiss regret. I constantly use this quote when it comes to the sport I play. When I cheer and I have to do something new I say this quote and push through my fears. Because when you have fear, it leaves you with regret.
