Do We Need Daily Inspirational Quotes For Self Improvement?

Self Improvement? Is It Worth It?
Pain may sometimes be the reason why people change. Getting flunked grades make us realize that we need to study. Debts remind us of our inability to look for a source of income. Being humiliated gives us the ‘push’ to speak up and fight for...

Many seek self-improvement and many like to receive a daily quote of inspiration as an aid to this aim. But, why do we like these sound bites? And do we need them? The answer lies somewhere in between.

It has been shown in numerous studies that language is required in order for a person to formulate ideas, to make plans and to dream: the poorer the language, the poorer the intellect. We need words in order to express ourselves. Without knowing a word for something we cannot begin to properly think about it. Imagine not knowing the word for ‘love’. How could you begin to explain to yourself, let alone anyone else, what love was. Also, we can expand on the idea of love if our vocabulary encompasses other words such as; like, desire, need, want, care for, affection, kinship, attraction, cherish and so forth.

Tips To Help You Jump Start Your Self-improvement Journey

Nearly everyone, knowingly or not, has remembered at least one line of prose or verse from a writer, poet or songwriter. We remember these lines and hold them dearly.

So, when we are searching for self-improvement we can often turn to lines that have been given to us by writers. We turn to them to express a truth about our self, to understand something of our world. Famous quotes by some of the World’s great writers can perfectly encapsulate a thought we have, an emotion we’re feeling or a truth we hold dear.

Dealing with Problems, Finding Solutions and Self Improvement.
Problems, obstacles, disappointments, or whatever we like to call them, are a fact of life. Things simply do not always happen the way we want them to, or go according to plan. Everyone has to face and deal with problems throughout their lives....

It’s not that we find the answer in a quote but our thoughts and convictions are bolstered by the words. They give us comfort and strength.

Some people can formulate ideas and express them precisely and concisely. And perhaps it is true that they don’t need quotes from others who have gone before them. But they are few and far between. Most of us lack the skill. So, if you are addicted to your ‘inspirational quote of the day’, then don’t let anyone tell you that it is a fatuous habit. Nearly all great writers have used or have been inspired by quotes of other writers.

I’ll leave you with one of my favourite quotes:

“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~Anaïs Nin
