4. 11 Must Read Life Lessons From John Lennon

I remember hearing ‘Hey Jude’ blaring from the speakers at school when I was a young boy. I was as much caught up in Beatle-mania as the next person. The ‘Fab Four’ totally turned the music world upside down with their vast array of melodies, clever lyrics and singable tunes.

They were dynamic, controversial, trendsetters, radicals, confrontational plus a whole lot more.

But even though I love the cheekiness of John Lennon, there is so much more that he shared with the world apart from his music. Therein lies a depth of wisdom that I would like to expand upon…

Here are 11 wise sayings to enjoy from John.

5. The 8 Most Inspirational Quotes About Life

Inspirational quotes are the oxygen that has breathed fresh invigoration into my life throughout the years. When facing personal challenges, a quote has often popped into my head and inspired me to press on. When I’ve needed to encourage someone else, often a quote will raise its head up and I find myself sharing it with them.

Quotes appear on Twitter with a vengeance, and are often the most liked and shared expressions found on a range of social media.

People love quotes. Why? They inspire. They motivate. They ignite. They put the gas in our empty tank.

Because they are bite-sized, they are easily digestible, and of course the greatest value is that they are memorable…

So allow me to share with you, in my opinion, the 8 most inspirational quotes ever uttered.

6. Snakes & Ladders – The Game Of Life

The game of Snakes & Ladders is a bit like life. Snakes take you down or backwards, and ladders take you up or forwards.

In life, after you have experienced the exhilaration of a ladder, it is quite possible that you could bump into a snake. But on the flip-side, after experiencing the humbling emitted by an encounter with a snake, your next move could land you at the foot of a ladder…

The response to this short rendition has been amazing.

7. 12 Of The Most Motivational Movies Of All Time

Movies are one of the tools that I personally use to inspire and motivate me.

I’m very selective as to what movies I watch, and in most cases I don’t just watch to be entertained. I want to take away from a movie something that I can readily apply to my life. Sometimes it’s a word. Sometimes it’s a phrase. And sometimes it’s the example of an underdog overcoming odds stacked against them. That way I truly get my money’s worth.

The movies I have selected are more than pure entertainment. They are in fact an investment into my heart, mind and soul…

Be inspired and motivated by these 12 movie trailers.

8. Fathoming Life’s Full Stops

When we are born we are issued with a life sentence.

Now there are two ways that we can approach this. We can either treat our  life as if we have been imprisoned into a set path of drudgery, restricted living and repetitive doldrums, or else we can treat it like writing a book.

Yours and my book of life is made up of a whole collected group of sentences. And each of these sentences are denoted by punctuation such as commas, colons, semi-colons, the occasional exclamation mark, lots of question marks, hyphens, and the inevitable appearance of the full stop.

And it is in this treatise that I particularly want to take a look at – the full stop.

Situations come. Situations go. But no matter what situation we find ourselves in, we are given the wonderful opportunity to not always change the situation or even how others respond to that situation, but rather to change the way we think, the way we respond, and the very way we live.

Learn about how you can change your life.

12. 3 Ways To Judge Your Own Life

The good book warns us to ‘judge not lest we be judged’.

But that is in reference to judging other people. But may I suggest that we need, from time to time, to stand in front of our own personal mirror and judge our own lives.

By scrutinizing our own lives, we do not need to be concerned with what others think – for the facts are that most don’t – think that is.

So let’s take a closer look at these three judgments.

13. 4 Powerful Guidelines For An Extraordinary Life

I had the awesome privilege of being accompanied on a 14 day, 14 city and 18 speaking engagements tour by my tour manager Mr Bernie Gray. At 77 years young, to be in his company for such a length of time was a real privilege. I travelled in the same vehicle, shared meals with him, was introduced to my audiences by him and learned how to effectively deal with people from all levels of society – from children, teenagers through to business leaders, church leaders, mayors, along with local, state and federal politicians.

Yet amidst that, I knew that this man, who in his business prime commanded five companies, brought Subaru into my nation, co-ordinated multi million dollar projects and oversaw hundreds of employees, was going to teach me something of significance.

It was one day, as we were being driven along, that Bernie shared the following four statements with me. He didn’t elaborate on them greatly – and so with these statements forged into my being I want to add my personal interpretation.

Here is my personal interpretation.

16. Those That Move

‘All mankind is divided into three classes: those who are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move.’ Benjamin Franklin

Discover the truth behind these three classes.

Which one are you?

17. How To Be Unashamedly You

So many of us have lived our lives concerned about what ‘they’ say or think.

But please allow me to join with Dr Seuss – the creator of such classics as ‘The Cat In The Hat’ amongst many other unique offerings for children and whose humor was often only understood by adults.

It really doesn’t matter what ‘they’ think or say. And in most cases ‘they’ aren’t thinking or saying anything about you.

Be enlightened here.

18. The How To’s Of Time Management & Life Efficiency

In the early 1900s when Ivy Lee advised the managers of Bethlehem Steel to list their top priorities and to then work on tasks in that prioritized order, not proceeding until a task was completed, he was rewarded handsomely.

Charles M. Schwab, who was the head of the company at the time, paid Lee $25,000 because of the power of his advice that positively effected the performance of his managers and of his entire company.

19. Be Your Own Action Man
