Inspirational Quotes versus Mantras

Per the Merriam-Webster dictionary, inspiration is defined as "the act of influencing or suggesting...", "the quality or state of being inspired."
What exactly does inspirational really mean
To me, inspirational means not just inspiring, but motivating, provocative and impactful. Inspirational quotes can allow ourselves to live authentic lives and to give us focus on what we want positive in our life, such as future goals.
Inspirational quotes can also be healing. They can help us when we need them most. They can help with maintaining mental clarity and for our well-being.
Religious quotes from the Bible, Quaran or Torah, for example, nourish our faith. They remind us to be grateful and to extend kindness to all.
Mantras are for enriching your soul

Mantra is a Sanskrit word defined as a sacred utterance, a syllable, word or group of words. It is believed by many to have both psychological and spiritual powers.
Many people use their own personal mantras as a positive phrase or otherwise known as affirmations. As such, this could be a favorite quote, proverb or religious saying that truly motivates and inspires one to be their personal best.
There are also many motivational success mantras or affirmations that are often used to reach professional and athletic performance goals.
Creating Your Own Personal Inspirational Quote or Mantra
Let's learn how to create your own personal Inspirational Quote or Mantra to make you happy.
- The first step is to determine what your own personal favorite quote or quotes you like. Pick something that truly resonnates with you.
- Make sure you know your own personal 'why' behind what you choose.
- Don't discount the power of including an image, artwork, or a photo. They make a big impact in the overall 'feel or emotion' of your words.
- Write your selected quotes down. Writing and actually reading them in your own handwriting creates a psychological 'impression' on our psyche.
- Display your completed Inspirational quote or mantra. You can go all out and hang your 'artwork' on your office wall. Or you simply may want to keep it private in a journal.
- Some people opt to do a 'vision board' which includes not only their favorite quotes, but of their dreams and goals in pictures.
