What if Motivation is the Opposite of Inspiration?

What I love about this article, is the fact that is starts off with the words – Reading Time: 90 seconds. In our ridiculously time poor society messages need to be short and to the point, and the inclusion of a reading time helps us to discern what we will and won’t read. Or perhaps I should say, what we do and don’t have time for.

This very short article is concise, and yet comprehensively covers the difference between motivation and inspiration. Read it here!!

15 People Around The World Living With No Regrets

I’ve got to be honest, I’m pretty stoked to be able to say that I’m currently living a life with no regrets. I’m constantly traveling, I have plenty of time to see my friends, I’m doing so many things I have been dreaming about for years, and I hope that with this blog, I am helping and inspiring others to live the lives of their dreams.

I really can’t believe that it was not even a year ago that I was in such a different place. Feeling trapped, stressed and unhappy, I didn’t have any time for myself or friends.  It still amazes me to think that it took just one bold move to shift myself into this world of no regrets.  I quit my job, sold my house and hit the road (okay, maybe that’s two bold moves) .  And here I am.

The attached article shares the stories of some very inspiring people who are living lives with no regrets and making a big difference to the planet in their own way.  Check it out – it helps to see that it is possible for every one of us to make a positive difference in the world.
