3 ideas to use this inspiration in your life

A single word can sometimes be more powerful than a handful of sentences.

So use your own favorite or favorites among these one word quotes to motivate and inspire yourself in your daily life.

Here are three of my most used ideas for doing that:

  • A reminder by telephone every morning and/or evening. I use the free Google Keep app to set daily reminders with uplifting and helpful quotes for myself.
  • A note on the bathroom mirror or bedside table. This way you see the quote that inspires you first thing in the morning and it helps you set the right tone for your day.
  • Use it on social media to inspire yourself and others. Add your favorite or most powerful quote to a photo that inspires you in a post on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or other social sites.
