5 Life Changing Lessons to Live By

5 Inspiring Life QuotesHave you ever observed a person’s response to an insult, a criticism, when they made a mistake that left you with your mouth wide opened?

Then, you think, “WOW, how can this person not get upset?”

Suddenly, you reflect and get stimulated to change your response in similar situations.
Sometimes, we cross paths with people in our day-to-day lives that inspire us to see things differently. So much so, that we not only become more positive, we start to make a difference in other’s lives as well.
This post is a list of inspirational quotes from people I’ve met around the world: lessons in which they live by. They have the potential to inspire, encourage and spark something inside of you, just as it has done for me.
Many of us struggle silently through life and feel stuck. Sometimes other’s experiences can help us open our minds to alternative solutions, choices and behaviors towards those struggles.
Enjoy.

    As I commented on the original post, the quote from Julia, in Chile, is one that has stuck with me and one which I find helpful to refer back to. Her story is one of my favorites on your blog.
