I came across three blog posts this week that just resonated. Don’t you love when that happens? So, I thought I’d share them with you, in case you need a little inspiration today, too.
For me, I get the value in coaching and ebooks and eclasses, I truly do. So, when I pass on spending the money, I have a good reason for it. It’s seldom because I don’t care enough to invest in myself or my business, but because I need to make a decision about where to spend what I have. -Me
That’s the comment I left on Laura’s post, which I found brilliant and validating. She succinctly acknowledges a point that I didn’t realize bothered me till I read what she wrote: there may be a good reason entrepreneurs decide to hold onto their money. And whatever reason that is, it’s fine.
Here’s a curative for the sharp judgement that often accompanies our disappointment in others — just a single, surprising expansive phrase: You just never know. Use it before you jump to conclusions that someone’s a jerk, or that they need an attitude adjustment, or that they could be doing better than they are. -Danielle LaPorte
I’m a big fan of Danielle LaPorte; her words ring true to me in a way that I can’t ignore. But this post, read on a day when I felt at my crappiest, made me feel like she was writing to me and for me.
This brings to light the biggest problem with making resolutions. Setting a resolution to “be more productive” is so damn vague. It’s like saying, “I’m going to lose 20 pounds”but not really understanding what it’ll take to get there… -Matt Cheuvront
Since I’m looking down the barrel of a new direction and feeling clueless about how to get a few goals done, this post hit home for me. Because Matt’s absolutely right – sometimes my goals are so very vague. Not only are they vague, the vague-ness of the way I wrote them bores me, which is not a good way to start things off, I think.
Your turn: What’s inspiring you today? Come across any posts that have resonated?
