Motivational Posters - A Source Of Inspiration?
What Inspires You? What motivates you to get up in the morning? Are you one of those people who have a burning desire to achieve something or are you drifting along doing your daily routine? This is something you may not have put much attention on or even any at all but, if you look closely, you may find that there may have been one or more people who have inspired you in your life.
Any person who has been successful at something will tell you something like, my grandma always said?or my dad always gave me the best advice, or someone once said to me?! Get the picture?
Words can be very powerful in influencing our lives. A certain phrase can suddenly just hit you and BAM; a sudden realization can change the direction you're going in! The reaction one has to these realizations varies tremendously.
You may find that a certain saying moves you while Joe next store doesn't feel moved by it at all.
There are many areas of life that we look for inspiration or motivation; love and relationships, business, sales, and even in times of trouble such as war and natural disasters.
If you were in the military, you might find something like this quote, as seen on a motivational print, to be something that inspires you; "Bravery-Soldier?It takes an extraordinary person to face danger and maintain composure".
A mother may find this inspirational, "Direction-Family?There are two important things we can give our children. One of them is roots, and the other is wings"
Another is "Leadership-Fisherman?A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way".
These are all quotes that are often seen on motivational prints in offices and homes, but individuals we know or meet in our daily lives can also inspire us.
The visual of the poster or print along with an inspirational saying underneath can be a great tool to inspire your self and others and serve as a reminder of the path you are on.
Remember though that an inspiration or motivation from others is only as good as what we ourselves contribute to it. The real motivation comes from within.
Hang them up at work or at home and enjoy!

I love the sounds of melting snow-plink, plink, ting, ting, ting, a staccato drip on sloped metal roofs, the occasional loud crack of a giant icicle, the bubble and gurgle of the mountain brook as it swells and tumbles over polished rocks on its way to the valley below.I love to gaze at the majestic white peaks with knowing wonder that they will soon morph into greens, oranges, purples, reds and a myriad of ever-changing hues, a dance between the sun, the clouds and the fog, a waltz of beauty and color that never changes partners yet never replays itself, each day a masterful original.
