If you "like" Iron Lotus PT on Face Book and I hope you do, you know I love my inspirational quotes.

Here Is One of My Favorites!

"The reasonable man/woman adapts himself/herself to the world. The unreasonable man/woman persists in trying to adapt the world to himself/herself. All progress, therefor, depends on the unreasonable man/woman"

George Bernard Shaw

Call me what you will...Wellness Coach, Personal Trainer, Entrepreneur, Marketer, Writer, Musician...It doesn't matter, at the end of the day I'm trying to live my life to the fullest by bettering myself everyday. I try to unlearn "reasonable" and push to higher limits.

Because I run my own business I use quotes for inspiration everyday....They become my daily mantras.

Maybe you don't run your own business but your boss is less then inspiring, or maybe your friends are dragging you down with their negativity. Either way you can use quotes to inspire yourself. I hope you take this one to heart in 2011

Make this year your unreasonable year. Step outside of your comfort zone and do something that scares you.

Set no expectations...Just have fun with it

Test yourself in uncomfortable situations...There really is less to lose then you think.

Whether or not it works out the way you thought doesn't matter....It only matters that you actually took action.

Maybe even get crazy and try that 5am wake-up to work out. Take that class you felt to embarrassed to in the past. Eat a strict vegetarian diet for a week straight just to see how you feel.

Go out of your way whether you are an artist or human resources consultant to be as creative as possible when at work.

Make Changes!! Don't be afraid!! "Fear is that little dark room where negatives are developed" Michael Pritchard (bam another great quote)

The bottom line here is that too often we reason ourselves out of our best ideas. Lets start embracing our ideas no matter how outlandish or unlikely they seem. We have limited time on planet earth, we may as well make the best of it.

I hope that your mantra for 2011 will be "I'm unreasonable"

However If you have a different Mantra please let me know in the comment box
