Who is your inspiration/motivation? Today I have been thinking a lot about what keeps us going. Mentally, physically, emotionally, we all get run down once in a while. So who do you go to to bring you back up? I get a lot of my inspiration from motivational teachers. I actually have a dream team of teachers that I go to whenever I need a boost!
When my spirit needs a lift I go to Gabrielle Bernstein. She is a miracle worker and a teacher of A Course in Miracles. She is an amazing woman who inspires me daily to meditate, love, and believe in myself and miracles. She has two books (Add More ~ing to Your Life and Spirit Junkie) both of which are fantastic. Her next book about miracles is due out later this year. Gabby also has a social networking site just for women to connect, learn, and share.
Feeling run down and in need of a stretch? My girl Tara Stiles is an excellent yoga instructor. She is actually Deepak Chopra’s very own yoga instructor. She also has books, videos, a youtube channel, and a blog with wonderful advice on getting your body moving and your mind relaxed. I find her yoga videos to be challenging but very relaxing at the same time. But I need a real butt-whopping I go to Lisa-Marie of BodyRock.
For food matters I head over to Kris Carr’s Crazy Sexy Life site. I have spoke about Kris in other posts, she is just amazing. After being diagnosed with cancer in her 30s she took charge of her health and food choices. She completely turned around her life and became an advocate for healthy, cruelty free eating. Her Crazy Sexy Diet book is excellent. She is also coming out with a cook book later this year/early next year.
Lastly, for some business advice for women I turn to Marie Forleo. She has built an empire on giving women business advice and is a superb teacher. She also has a weekly video newsletter that she sends out answering her readers’ most burning questions. I always learn at least one thing when I tune into her channel.
