INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE

I wanted to create a page that showed and shared the lives of people whom I think have inspired others to live happier and healthier lives.

The people below inspire me and lift me up when I need it the most.  They share many insightful teachings that have opened my heart to my true essence.

I hope you too find the stories and teachings inspiring as well as eye opening!

ENJOY!

Full Episode: Oprah and Marianne Williamson – Video

I have to say that watching this 40 minute video brought me so much happiness and joy! It is all about LOVE! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! It is everywhere… Spread it. 🙂

A Return to Love

quotes

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?

― Marianne Williamson

“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.”
― Marianne Williamson

“And no one will listen to us until we listen to ourselves.”
― Marianne Williamson

“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.”
― Marianne Williamson

“We are not held back by the love we didn’t receive in the past, but by the love we’re not extending in the present.”
― Marianne Williamson


As I watched Janine on a recent TEDTalk, explaining her life as an Olympian and then tragically being hit by a car, never to walk again (as she was standing while giving her speech), I knew that she would be a true inspiration to many of us!

This video is magnificent!

“Believe in the unknown because the unknown is sometimes where infinite impossibilities become infinite possibilities.”

Tony Robbins has inspired many people around the world to live better lives. He has had 30 years experience, coaching and giving people the tools to transform their lives. I have had friends attend his weekend-long events, a friend in particular, who has attended almost every event in the past two years and I truly believe if it wasn’t for her attending Tony Robbins she wouldn’t be where she is today. He has a magical gift to help others open their hearts and show them their true colors. He unleashes the power within!

What others have said about Tony.

“He has a great gift. He has the gift to inspire.”
President Bill Clinton

“The man who has inspired millions to change their lives! [Tony] brings out the best in all of us. The world is a better place because of him.”
Larry King

“No matter who you are, no matter how successful, no matter how happy–Tony has something to offer you.”
Hugh Jackman

“Tony Robbins’ coaching has made a remarkable difference in my life both on and off the court. With Tony’s help, I’ve set new standards for myself, and I’ve taken my tennis game—and my life—to a whole new level!”
Serena Williams

“I’ve come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.”

“A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.”

“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”

“The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you’re in control of your life. If you don’t, life controls you.”

“If your life is cloudy and you’re far, far off course, you may have to go on faith for a while, but eventually you’ll learn that every time you trust your internal navigation system, you end up closer to your right life.”

“Whatever you love, there’s a market for it…Do what your passion tells you, there’s a group of people looking for that.”

“Where your attention goes, your life goes.”
