Make your Life Matter - Volume 1

Inspirational Thoughts and Actions that will build your Self Esteem & Create a Positive Difference in the World

By Sandi Givens, Certified Speaking Professional, National Speakers Association of Australia

We all need a lift now and again. Life can wear us out, deplete our energy and somehow shrink our spirit. I wrote this book for those times when we need some uplifting reading, an idea that will stir our consciousness and raise our spirits.

Under different subject headings such as ‘What it means to be Courageous’, ‘Know your Worth’ and ‘Uncommon Teamwork’, inside you’ll find 25 inspirational quotes along with several paragraphs from me about how you can apply the wisdom these contain to your daily life.

A great ‘pick-me-up’ from when you – or a friend – needs it most.

  • Frankly, no. It's not possible - and we are causing ourselves untold frustration and disappointment while we keep trying to achieve it!
     
     
    Why do I say this?
     
    Well, think for a minute about the phrase itself - 
  • (WARNING: Your life as you know it is about to change)

     

    “How can I handle difficult people?”

    Answer – you can’t.

    “Wait – what? You mean I’m stuck with them in my life?”

    Answer – it all depends on how you look at it.

  • I recently attended a three-day women’s festival that I attended for the first time in 2016. It’s never the same the second, third or umpteenth time around is it? First of all, there’s that ‘first time newness’ that we can only get once. “Wow! Look at that!” “Goodness, that’s amazing!” And so on … because we are seeing things through fresh, first-time eyes.

    In our subsequent visits, while we look for that same magic, but logically know it will be different than our beloved ‘first-time’.  We then start to notice what’s not there that we liked the previous year(s), and lament “But I really liked that!”

    So this year, I decided to focus instead on what was new, different and intriguing. And that’s how I came across The Release Tree.

  • We’ve all heard these definitions …

    Courage is not the absence of fear, but the conquering of it.  (I’ve seen this attributed to Dan Millman)

    Courage is resistance to fear.  (Thanks Mark Twain)

    Courage is mastery of fear.  (Mark Twain again)

    What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.  (Kelly Clarkson made this line famous in her pop song)

    In other words, grit your teeth and move on regardless. Tough it out. Toughen up.

     

    A lot of people who know me say I’m one of the most tenacious, determined, “courageous” people they know. And I’ve always kind of liked this. I’m proud that I ‘hang in there’, dig deep and find my way through challenges.

    My father (bless you, dad) had a saying that went something like this: “The real measure of a person’s character is how they handle adversity.” And I liked this too – for most of my life.

    Whenever I was going through a tough time, I’d remember my dad’s words and think ‘keep going, Sandi – you’re developing character. People will admire you for the fact that you’ve made it through all this crap.’ And so I did keep going (though I’m not sure this really earned me brownie points in the admiration-from-other-people stakes).

  • That’s right – how long has it been since you celebrated?

    I don’t mean go-out-on-the-town-and-spend-a-fortune celebration …

    I mean even a simple pause in your day when you gave yourself a pat on the back.
