Inspirational Life Quotes: INTRODUCTION

Let’s talk about life, for a moment – your life.

I don’t care who you are – rich, famous, poor, out of work, thin, fat, happy or sad – life is an amazing adventure that contains the good… the bad… and the pug-ugly.

Like a roller coaster, there are ups and there are downs. It goes your way sometimes, and it goes against you at others.

  • No-one goes untouched by joy, by pain, by love or by fear, no-one;
  • Life isn’t fair, LIFE JUST IS.

No matter how much we compare ourselves to others, to what’s going on for someone else – by the way, never compare yourself to anyone else but yourself, and I don’t recommend you even do that, too often. –  we all know deep down that life just is.

It ain’t personal; life just is.

Which leads me to your first inspirational life quote – simple, but true, words about life…

Inspirational life quote #1:
“In three words I can sum up everything
I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”
– Robert Frost


Another Inspirational Life Quote, For You!

…Yes, life just happens. Good stuff occurs, and so does bad stuff. There is a flow to life, to experiencing each and every moment as new (which, of course, it is). And the more you ‘get it’, the more you deepen your understanding of the 3 principles, of how life works (of how you work) then:


Simple as that. Really. An inspirational life.

Inspirational life quote #2:
“You can have anything you want if you are willing
to give up the belief that you can’t have it.”
– Robert Anthony

Flowery words, I agree. But then why shouldn’t a wonderful life be like a flower? A flower that endures both rain and shine, that blooms, that ‘sings its song’. Until, eventually, it withers away to let new life come.

Why not be a flower, then?

Why be affected so much by the weather storm that is your thinking?

Why take life so seriously?

After all, c’mon you know it’s true – deep down, “it’s just a ride!”…

An Inspirational Life, Then, or Just Talkin’?

Life, like sex, is one of those pursuits where we all talk a good game. Our talk is better than our walk. Well, if we’re being honest with ourselves, anyway, if we’re looking within. But it doesn’t have to be just be that way. We all CAN walk the talk, we can.

Inspirational life quote #3:
“Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied
with the life you’re living?”
– Robert (Bob) Marley


Wanna talk about life now, maybe, your life? And the power of transformative coaching to help you open up to the possibilities of living your life less hindered by limited thinking?

How ’bout if I share with you one last inspirational life quote (or two), by way of persuasion:

Inspirational life quotes #4 and #5:
“Accept responsibility for your life.
Know that it is you who will get
you where you want to go,
no one else.”
– Les Brown

“Life isn’t about finding yourself.
Life is about creating yourself.”
– George Bernard Shaw




The inspirational life quotes above reflect the stark truth about life, that life just IS.

And we may make our judgements on life, have our preferences, but they’re about as important, and effective, as a child shooing away the ocean with a water pistol.




Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. And so is an inspirational life. Your life. It’s inspirational, or not, as you see it. (No one else.) Do you see that? Yes, seeing that you’re always doing the best you can – even if that best could be better, sometimes – IS at the heart of an inspirational life.

So what can you do, today, to embrace your own inspirational life? You can notice…

  • Notice that you have always done your best, in the moment
  • Notice how you have always been there, for you, when it matters
  • Notice how you always find a way to share your love with the world
  • (And if some or all of the above seems untrue to you, then I’d like you to experiment – to get curious – and find a way to notice these things, for a week, please.)

Or, a much simply way to an inspirational life…
