For quotes, there are hundreds of websites that collect quotes from well-known people and I can easily pick quotes from there. But right now, I rarely do that, because I really enjoy reading and I can select inspirational quotes from things I read every day.
For questions, I usually ask questions in 7 directions:
1. Use questions to push you to take action:
2. Use questions to help you think broadly:
3. Use questions to help you think differently:
4. Use questions to help you know yourself better:
5. Use questions to challenge your traditional beliefs:
6. Use questions to help you reflect about your day:
7. Use questions to help you see things clearly
Quotes contain the wisdom of the greatest mind in the world. But to most people, those inspirational quotes are just plain sentences and random information. Our brains are lazy, and without some thinking process, we can never truly understand the quotes and turn the knowledge we gain from the quotes into our own wisdom.
Questions have great power. A relevant thought provoking question asked at the right time can help us be more aware of what we are doing, reflect what is happening, what is our ultimate objective and change the direction of our lives.
When quotes are combined with questions, the magic happens. Quotes are like a giant, questions are like a tool to help us step up and stand on the shoulder of the giant so that we are able to see above, far and beyond. You must take both of them with you on your lifelong journey.
Steve Jobs was lucky enough to do what he loves to do, brave enough to think differently, strong enough to stand up after dramatic setbacks and talented enough to make dream come true.
But I admit that I’m no saint. And most of us aren't, either. There are ups and downs in our lives. Most of the times, we are driven by emotions, such as fear, anger, envy and insecurity.
Quotes and questions can help you dissociate yourself from emotions and look at problems in a brand new angle. Once your emotional brain is suppressed, your logical brain become active. Thus, new solutions come out and the goal become clearer.
QuoteSecret is a lifelong journey to self-awareness and inspirations. It helps you to see above and beyond.
The daily email arrives at your inbox usually at around 7-8 am in the morning. Spend 1-2 mins in a quiet place and think about the question.
You may need to write down your thoughts and inspirations on a post-it or some notetaking software like Evernote.
Save the email in a special folder so that you can review it in future to trace back the inspiration.
For now, NO. My goal is to keep QuoteSecret running forever through sponsor or donation, and affiliate book recommendations. I will try my best to keep the daily email clean and tidy for readers around the world.
