• We Really Do Get What We Ask For

    Listen to episode 911 of the Inspirational Living podcast: We Really Do Get What We Ask For. Edited and adapted from The Open Door by Hugh Black.

    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Always remember that what you request is given to you, and what you really will in your heart you attain. Life comes and says calmly and confidently, "Ask what I shall give you," and the door opens out into the place of your asking.

    I know that this may seem at first an absurd statement that what we seek we find, and where we knock it is opened to us, but if you think a little you will see that it is true. We may not get the exact thing we most desire. The particular object on which we have set our hearts may....

  • The Great Truth of Life | Spirituality Podcasts

    Listen to a sample episode of Our Sunday Talks, an exclusive series for the patrons of the Inspirational Living podcast. This episode is edited and adapted from The Life Radiant by Lilian Whiting, published in 1903.

    Podcast Excerpt: The great truth of life — that which we may well hold as its central and controlling and dominating truth — is that "our best moments are not departures from ourselves, but are really the only moments in which we have truly been ourselves." These moments flash upon the horizon of the soul and vanish. They appear before us as in vision, and fade; but the fact of their appearance is its own proof of their deep reality.

  • How to Go Through Life With Perfect Poise

    Listen to episode 910 of the Inspirational Living podcast: How to Go Through Life With Perfect Poise. Edited and Adapted from Poise: How to Attain It by D. Starke.

    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Poise is a quality which enables us to judge of our own value, and which (in revealing to us the knowledge of the things of which we are really capable) gives us at the same time the desire to accomplish them.

    It is not a singular quality. On the contrary, it is a composite of many qualities, all of which take part in the molding of that totality which bears the name of poise.

    The principal qualities of which poise is composed are as follows:

    Motivational Podcast Excerpt: Michelangelo was one day explaining to a visitor at his studio what he had been doing to a statue since a previous visit. "I have retouched this part—polished that—softened this feature—brought out that muscle— given some expression to this lip, and more energy to that limb." 

    "But those are trifles," said the visitor. 

    "It may be so," replied Michelangelo, "but recollect that trifles make perfection, and perfection is no trifle."

  • What's Done Must Be Done With Love

    Listen to a sample episode of Our Sunday Talks, an exclusive series for the patrons of the Inspirational Living podcast. This episode is edited and adapted from Power Through Repose by Annie Payson Call, published in 1900.

    Podcast Excerpt: It is with life as it is with art. What we do must be done with love, or it will have no force. Without the living spark of love, we may have the appearance (but never the spirit) of useful work or quiet contentment. Stagnation is not peace, and there can be no life, and thus no living peace, without happy relations with those about us.

    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Most people are very content with the world they live in. Even the poor are often happy because what they have and what they think are equal. But the moment a person realizes that being poor limits them in many ways, they are no longer happy. They want other things; they wish to live on a better street; to know people who are doing well. In other words, they want to be (quote) "better off," as the saying goes.....

    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: IT is not the circumstances of life that trouble or weigh upon us. It is the way we take them. If a person is playing a difficult game of chess, the more intricate the moves, the more thoughtfully they look over their own and their opponent's pieces, and the more fully they are aroused to make the right move toward a checkmate.

    If, when the game became difficult, the player stopped to be depressed and disheartened, their opponent would probably always checkmate them. However, in most cases, the more difficult the game, the more....

    Listen to a sample episode of Our Sunday Talks, an exclusive series for the patrons of the Inspirational Living podcast. This episode is edited and adapted from The Shining Gateway by James Allen, published in 1915.

    Podcast Excerpt: Every dog can bark and fight, and every foolish person can rail and abuse with hard words, and give way to fits of bad temper. These things are easy and natural to us, and require no effort and no strength. But the wise person puts away all such follies, and trains themselves in self-control — trains themselves to act unerringly from fixed principles, and not from the fleeting impulses of an unstable nature.

    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: The soldier who begins the battle in doubt is half beaten in advance. The entrepreneur who loses heart after one failure is a fool to have even started. There is a great deal in good preparation, but there is a great deal more in heroic perseverance. The person who declines to make a start until everything they think they need is ready at hand is very apt to fail.

    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Life is a big thing, and your mind is a big thing. There ought to be nothing mean or small in your thoughts. Your imagination is bounded only by the measureless space of the universe. After all, you can comprehend the heavens stretching away to the uttermost bounds of the horizon, can’t you? You should, therefore, not confine your thoughts to the measure of small streets.

    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: The achievement of focusing the mind on one thing at a time involves not only the energy in striving to do that one thing, but also the ability to put aside other things to make a clear channel for the desired end.

    The power to focus attention has been the inseparable adjunct to all achievements in business, politics, art, literature, and science. Through this power, women and men of very ordinary ability have risen from poverty to great affluence.

    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Are you disheartened? Are you afraid to make a start for fear that you will fail, and your subsequent condition be worse than your first? Such feelings are common to all successful women and men, for they have all had their misgivings at times.

    But every person has success within themselves, and to start is to win half the battle. A start toward usefulness is a start that no one has ever yet made in vain. Every person and every genius in all history started before they could actually do the thing. We learn by doing, and we learn in no other way.

    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Some people have called life a voyage, where we steer for a certain port. Some say it is a climb from the valleys of labor to some great mountain peak of rest. Others call it a journey down a sunlit road that now and then has a shadow. I do not disagree with any of this, but I call life a game. It is a wonderful game. And we all want to win, and we all may win.

    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Today, I would like to talk about forgiveness. There are people who say they have forgiven, but they have not forgotten. This really means that their forgiveness is incomplete; something is wanting in it; it is defective; it is not free and generous; it is lame and weak. In so far as an injury is not forgotten and entirely overlooked, it is not forgiven, and there is still resentment in your breast.

    Now, you are not required to forget the injury and blot it out entirely from your memory. You may recall it to mind, just as you do....

    Listen to a sample episode of Our Sunday Talks. Edited and adapted from The Call of the Upper Road by Kathrine Ross Logan, published in 1924.

    Inspirational Podcast Transcript: No road is forced upon you. You travel whatever road you are on because you willed to do so. Your will is yourself in action. Your will is your soul exercising self direction. Your will, your own free will, makes you responsible for whatever you choose, and holds you accountable all through life for that which you choose to do.

    Your will is a wonderful divine gift. You will yourself to be whatever you are. By exercising your will aright, you can accomplish great things, overcome great difficulties within and without. “All that life needs for life,” says Tennyson, “is possible to will.”

    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Don't be overcautious. The person who never risks anything will never have anything. If you are working for someone, do more for them than they expect. That is the only way you can give satisfaction.

    Don't be shrewd. Don't try to look out for number one, and make little sharp deals. You may win in every one of them. You may get all the concessions you ask for, but in getting them you take on a handicap that is hard to overcome.

    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: It’s been said that most business owners fail. Even if this were true, it doesn't mean that they fail absolutely. It simply means that they failed to make a success of the business in which they started, and are now trying something else.

    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Let us make the most of our one chance, and not spoil it by any folly or cruelty. How pleasant it will be, as we draw near the goal, if we can look back and realize that though the way was very steep and rough for us in some places, and though it traversed at times a landscape that was all devoid of loveliness, yet, as we passed along, we scattered the seeds of tender words, and helpful deeds, that even now have grown into a carpet of greenery to soften the path for others, and a border of blossoms to cheer them with its beauty.
