Inspiration Corner
A collection of write-ups from experiences of life that inspire, empower, influence & trigger positive values, habits & mindsets.


"I wish I could also do that..", "I wish I could buy that..", "I wish I could be working in that company..", "I wish I could go to gym every day..", "I wish I had a dress like that..", "I wish I could start my own blog..", "How I wish people followed my twitter account as well.." etc.
Many more such statements are a common set of words which I hear from a number of people around and the whole purpose why I set up the vision Inspiration Unlimited was, to uproot those reasons why the above statements are written like a wish and not like statements that express joy of having done it.
Through this platform of taking a lot of inspirational talks for lots of people, I met lot of people who even expressed: "I also wish to become a speaker like you.". My immediate answer would be a question: "Who is stopping you?". A blank expression, an embarrassed face, a sad feeling, a question mark, state of confusion or others of this like are common results of this question of mine.

My answer to this question- You yourself have been the reason to stop yourself. Most people come to me with an answer: "But, I do not know what it takes to make it big!", "But, I do not know what it takes to setup and grow!" etc.

If you know there is something that is stopping you, like lack of knowledge about something, lack of interest, lack of funds, lack of right guidance, lack of time (I don't and will never trust this one), lack of motivation etc., the best part is your problem is solved. At least you know what is stopping you, the only thing remaining is to fight it and win it and take the steps towards making things happen.

There must be something that is already coming to your mind while reading this article that you have not done in a long time now. THAT is the thing I am talking about friend. That thing needs your attention. That's the route to your happiness, at least if not happiness, a definite route to reducing sadness, dullness and regrets in your life of not having been able to do things.

I come with a simple solution for you:
Step 1: Sit down and write it as clearly as possible of what is that you intend to do.
Step 2: Write why would you want to do that?
Step 3: Where do you want to take it in the next 5 years.
Step 4: What all do you need to set this up?
Step 5: What is your target for 1st month of starting what you would be and what is your target for first 3 months?
(Remember friends: It could be anything that you would START: a hobby, a profession, a habit, a book that you always wanted to read, learning something (an instrument or skill) etc.)

The above steps should not take more than 1-2 hours. So here I conclude, requesting you to start something RIGHT NOW that you have not done in a while now.

Your time starts now to start your one thing that you were thinking all along during the reading of this article. ANYTHING! Once you start it, share it with your friends (encouraging ones initially). Make a shout on twitter, Facebook and wherever possible.
