Inspirational Update
I recently quit my make-ends-meet job to allow more room for my dreams to manifest. For me passion, enthusiasm, joy, and excitement are an integral part of life, yet they have been missing. Itís amazing how powerfully draining a dead-end job can be.

I decided to drop the contradiction and I am living with more congruency. This website is about inspirational quotes and living an inspired life, no more uninspired days for me. I left my job one month ago and things are going great. This website and newsletter have doubled in visitors. Now I am devoting more time to sharing inspirational quotes and articles with all of you. Letís live inspired lives. Which brings us to...

1. The Optimists Creed
This was authored by C.D. Larson in 1912. I have written it in the first person. Take a moment to read it to yourself and really feel each line as you read.

I Promise Myself...

To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet.

To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet.

To give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.

3. The Unexplainable Store
I found a great source for meditation and relaxation MP3s. The website is a bit cooky; it reminds me of a Halloween store with the orange and black colors they use. But the products are top notch. If youíre looking for some great meditation, relaxation, or personal development tools check out my review of the unexplainable store. The MP3s are great for anyone who is short on time and wants to put their personal development on autopilot.

4. Coming Soon
A review of SBI, aka site build it. Site Build It, is the company that has helped me to build this website and take it from an idea to a genuine online income generating website. You can check them out by visiting the About Me page, which has my story and a link to site build it. Or wait for the upcoming review. If youíre interested in a genuine online stream of income, while doing something you enjoy then SBI is a great option. They will show you how to take almost any hobby or passion and turn it into a profitable website.
