Inspiration vs Principles

Inspiration vs Principles

If you feel lost, or as though you don’t know where you want your life to go next, you don’t need more inspiration. 

You need principles. Without them,  your life is not going to get better just because you envision and then try to create a new one. Those problems are only going to follow you, and get bigger as your life does.

What a principle is

What a principle is

It's a fundamental truth that you can use to build the foundation of your life. A principle is not an opinion or a belief. A principle is a matter of cause and effect.

Principles can become personal guidelines. And the point of having principles is that it shifts you from short-term survival to long-term thriving.

Why inspiration is ineffective

Why inspiration is ineffective

Inspiration can be misleading. Big dreams not backed by strategized plans are big flops waiting to happen.

Inspiration means you take a feeling and elaborate on it. You allow your mind to wander, you piece together pretty pictures and create an image of how you’d like your life to feel.

Developing your own principles

Developing your own principles

Begin with this:

  • What do you value?
  • What do you want to experience in your life?
  • What makes you uneasy or gives you anxiety?

For example: You value financial freedom, and so by principle, you are going to put your extra cash toward repaying debt or building savings or investments.

Having clear principles

Having clear principles

A good life is built from the inside out and is based on a foundation of self-conduct and prioritization. It’s not as dreamy as a vision board, but it’s a lot more effective.

When you are clear on what your principles are, you can start working toward goals that support what you do and do not want to experience.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
