Self Inspirational Quotes [IMPROVE Yourself]
30 Self-Improvement and Self Inspirational Quotes to start your day. Leave your worries behind and start looking to the future.
Inspiration and motivation… be hopeful quotes. Words that are spoken so often lose weight and meaning. Strategies and methods are created on the topic of how to be inspired and motivated. People go somewhere to get inspired, buy someone’s services to motivate themselves. It is perfectly fine for everyone to do what they think is right and I support people who work on themselves and look for ways to overcome the lack of inspiration, motivation, creativity.
I am not a coach, nor a guru, and I cannot share tips and methods that help. It happens that I also run out of inspiration, although I can’t define exactly whether I lack inspiration or a good mood. I prefer to say that I am uninspired than depressed.
Sounds better. My ways of self-help in these situations are very simple: books, movies, stories, music, quotes… Also, reading quotes about mindfulness and self-reflecting.
I get in the mood very quickly and get inspired whatever I choose. There are such works from various fields, which radiate energy and cause a smile. In the continuation of the text, I will share some of my favorite works that seem inspiring, and I will leave the motivation for the next text. Before that, make sure to read our Self Compassion Quotes to improve your mood.

Three inspirational books
“Perseverance” – Cheryl Sandberg
If you need additional inspiration around your career and want to achieve an even better balance between private and business commitments, this book by one of the CEOs of Facebook is a great choice. Cheryl talks about how a woman can be successful in her business while being equally engaged in private commitments. In addition, she writes about external and internal barriers that appear on that path in a very simple way, that you have the feeling that you are sitting with her for coffee and that she is chatting with you as her best friend.
“Great Magic” – Elizabeth Gilbert
This is a book that teaches you to do what you love, dedicate yourself to it, enjoy the creative processes and stop making excuses and apologies to yourself and others. Elizabeth reveals what she herself goes through in the creative process of creation, shares with us valuable knowledge and a unique view of the role of creativity in our lives. It shows us that in front of us stands a world of possibilities of which we can be a part!
“The elephant that lost its happiness” – Ajam Bram
The author of the bestseller “The Cow Who Cried” brings new 108 stories that will make you laugh and teach you to look at life with different eyes. The timeless wisdom of Ajan Bram will touch people from all walks of life. Starting from his own experiences and from the stories that his students shared with him, as well as old jokes, told in a new way, the author will encourage everyone to reconsider their life patterns.
Three inspirational movies
Inspired by a true story, this film gives us an account of the emotional, life journey of a woman who is firmly determined to keep her troubled, dysfunctional family together – despite all the seemingly insurmountable differences. Driven by her own genius and desire to realize the dream of her life, Joy succeeds in her idea and becomes the founder of an empire worth several million dollars, which completely changes her, but the lives of her family members.
“In Search of Happiness” (2006)
The film is about the extraordinary mental strength of a man who is struggling with bigger and bigger defeats in life. He is aware that everything is going downhill and is holding on to his last hope – a new job that only one of many can get. The process of selecting the only candidate for a broker job takes six months during which he must work without pay. During those six months, Chris goes through real hell, divorce, disappointments, humiliations. But the desire for success is what pushes him forward. The desire for a normal life, the desire to provide a better life for the son, the desire to be happy, are what will keep him from shying away all the time. I remembered one piece of advice that Chris gives to his son in moments of despair: “Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something!”
“7 Years in Tibet” (1997)
Another true story about a man who, through an encounter with Dalai Lama, meets humility, selflessness, and tames his ego. Brad Pitt plays the lead role and the film should draw attention to some important things in life. You will be inspired by the changes after the movie, for sure.
