This is the final part on Inspiration Leads to Success. In this article, I encourage you to have positive thoughts and how they relate to inspiration.

Note that pessimism, negativity, anxiety, and apprehension drain the energy from within you. So focus only on the positive side in every situation that you encounter; this way, things get done more easily and efficiently.

So to sustain motivation, it requires rationalization that is anchored on positive outcomes from our endeavors.

I know that sometimes we can yield negative results from our endeavors but this should be a stepping stone for improvement and or change of approach.

To succeed in life failure must not be accepted. It must be dispelled. Instead, we must learn from it.

Our minds must be tuned to only accept positive results. Failure only becomes failure if accepted.

Find motivation and develop enthusiasm. Thinking positively is one way of finding your inspiration. Know in your mind and your heart what you are capable of accomplishing.

If you doubt, then you lose the game right there and then.  You cannot ever accomplish anything when you first do not believe that you can.

Success begins with the changing of your mindset. See the article on change your mind and enjoy your success. The bible encourages us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.

How do we renew our minds? one of the best ways is to read inspirational and motivational materials. The Bible is very rich in this aspect.

Keep in mind that every action begins with either a positive or negative thought, whereby positive thoughts gain positive results.

Be very certain about what you want to do, to achieve, and to become and concentrate on those thoughts each day. I would recommend a book by Napoleon Hill “Think and Grow Rich.” The book outlines some great principles you can use to help keep your mind focused on your intended purpose in life.

Be enthusiastic in everything that you do small or big things and remember that, little things when put together, become one big thing.

The Bible teaches us not to despise the days of our small beginnings. It is the small savings that when put together amount to large savings. Remember they say Rome was not built in one day it takes time to build something worthwhile.

Act on your goals! Take the necessary steps towards achieving them and begin now.

Each day, set up a plan of action and then work on it.  At the end of the day, review what you have done and record it.

You will be amazed at how important it is to document your progress on a regular basis. Then return to your journal each week to see how well you are progressing, or if there are certain acts that need revising, or if you need to take another route.

Look at your goals each day and get inspiration from them. Never allow negative thoughts to invade your mind.

Even when you see that you are not progressing, continue and be patient. Never let it discourage you. Remember, as they often say “where there is a will, there is always a way.”  So stand firm and continue with your struggle.

Remember that we all encounter problems along the way; successful individuals however keep on going when others have quit.

Enhance your knowledge by indulging in inspirational and positive books, talk to successful people and never stop learning.

Keep on focusing on success, on your goals.  Minimize spending time with people of negative outlook in life as they will often drain you and bring you down.

Success is built on the inspiration of all your little dreams and decisions that you have made for a certain period.

Note that it will not come overnight instead, stone by stone; it is built, carefully, but surely.  So be patient, your time will come.


“Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration” – Thomas Edison. Make that decision to succeed now.

Look into yourself and see that fire burning, ready to be ignited by inspiration’s strength and ready to soar.

Take some actions now, or else, nothing will happen and they will just remain to be a dream. Always remember to “standout tall and be counted.
