Psychologists believe that our capacity as human beings depends on what
our minds truly believe to be possible. “It’s all in the mind”, as they
say. In order to show how simple this idea is, a concrete example may
serve to illustrate it. Two students, without their knowledge, were
subjected to an experiment. Both were of the same grade level, age, and
nationality. They were instructed to take a long jump activity as part of
a physical education class. Girl 2 was shorter than girl 1. It was
expected that the shorter girl would initially feel hopeless because of
the obvious size advantage of the other girl so, without receiving any
motivation inspiring words from her coach, trial 1 was allowed to begin.
As was expected from trail 1, the shorter girl lost by a distance of
around 5 inches.

Trial 2 followed immediately after trial 1. With some proper coaching and
motivational words this time, the shorter girl won by 1.5 inches! How did
this happen? It happened because the power of belief and attitude. What
happened exactly was that an explanation about the height advantage of
the girl was re-contextualized for the shorter girl. She was told that
she actually had an even advantage with the taller girl because of her
lighter weight. When she saw the taller girl as being “heavier” than her,
it was enough motivation to inspire the shorter girl to focus on her own
strengths and to use them to win. It’s all in the way you look at it.

Inspirational words can totally change the direction of our lives. We
often see life as a scary place with dangers around every corner. We may
not even recognize the fact that many of our fears are hidden inside us
and controlling us at every turn. Others, on the other hand, may see life
as a series of opportunities to challenge themselves because they have
overcome these hidden fears and opened themselves up to a world of extra
energy that was also hidden inside them but covered and stifled by the
fears that surrounded it. It doesn’t take a major change in many cases to
alter the direction of your ship. One small turn on the wheel can
eventually result in a completely different section of the globe that you
will sail to! As soon as you change one of your coordinates, the
direction of your entire life will also change. You will begin to see
everything around you as reflecting of this new change and it will
provide you with even more inspiration to try even greater things.

Inspirational words can really be found everywhere. It’s just a matter of
being able to see them. From our homes, our schools to our workplace,
there are opportunities to find inspirational words. From the movies we
watch, the books we read, the music we listen to and the people we talk
to every single day of our lives, we can be inspired to do great things.
These are words, which may just be simple words, can hit the deepest part
of our souls and awaken us to be reminded of the true essence of who we
are. From there we will find ourselves capable of living our lives more
peacefully and more harmoniously with others.

Next time you think about where you want to find some inspirational
words, just look inside yourself and ask yourself what’s stopping you
from picking up one of the thousands of books out there that teach the
most simple truths of all. What’s holding you back from making a
commitment to read just five or ten pages a day to improve your life? The
inspiration is deep inside yourself and the words that you are looking
for outside are only a means to help you find that place inside that you
already had to begin with. The greatest inspirational words there are
those that will come right out of your own heart and mind. They will be
the ones that bring you to make a change and to reach for the stars.
