We’ve all experienced a piece of writing that leaves us with goosebumps and inspires us. Until recently, I had forgotten which blog posts had done that too me. The most inspiring blog posts all have one thing in common: they evoke emotion.
The most shared blog posts make us see the world differently. They’re vulnerable, they highlight the role of courage, and they’re relatable no matter what culture you come from. We all get stuck in the hamster wheel of life and forget to take time out to rebuild our mindset.
We go to war every day with negativity and fail to come back to base once in a while to repair the wounds. Living a life of fulfillment and happiness is a daily struggle for me, and I know it’s the same for you. These blog posts below will help you to find inspiration in every situation. They’ll provide the sort of wisdom that a Buddhist monk will give you.
Here are the top 5 blog posts of all time:
1. Advice from 30 year old me to 20 year old me
Nic Haralambous wrote this incredibly simple blog post that has been shared a bunch on social media. What makes it so inspiring is that it’s easy to digest. Anyone can relate to what Nic is saying. He has written this piece from the heart, and passed on real advice that will inspire you to think differently.
His best point is around failing. Failing allows us to grow, and growth is what takes us to the next level. I feel like I’m becoming a Zen Master in my own life because I’m embracing failure. I’m doing things that have a high amount of risk associated with each goal.
The fear when you fail is what forces you to take action in the next chapter of your life. The answer to success lies in failure.
2. The Subtle art of not giving a fuck
Mark Manson wrote this inspiring blog post about how to essentially let go. He pointed out to us that we don’t need to live up to anyone else’s standards. Standing out because we’re different is what makes us incredible in our own way, and we don’t need anyone to validate that.
People admire adversity, and so you should aim to not give a fuck when you fail. Marcus clearly articulates that when you care too much about the little things, it’s because you have no major goal or vision for your life. You’re stuck on autopilot heading towards a mountain that has no meaning to you whatsoever.
The moment you find that one thing that sends chills down your spine and makes you happy, all the small crap that doesn’t matter becomes irrelevant.
“You become the hero of your own story, rather than watching the other heroes win while you fail miserably and become depressed”
We only have so much energy and brainpower. Learning to focus and put your life into perspective is what this blog post is all about. Don’t let the F word put you off. This blog post is bold, direct, informative, and simply inspiring. No wonder it has become so popular that it’s been expanded into a best- selling book.
3. How To Think, To Get What You Want
Now I’m not biased by including an Addicted2Success article. I told you I would share the most shared blog posts that will inspire you and this one is exactly that. Laura Leigh Clark bravely tells us that in order to get what we want and feel successful, it all comes down to our thoughts.
Our reality is shaped by our thoughts. The guy or girl that has a better job or a bigger business than you got it because they thought they could. Their mind was focused on abundance rather than scarcity. Laura links up in our minds that our thoughts and experience are related.
If we think we’re going to fail, we will. It’s not blind faith; it’s focusing on the positive which will give you the strategies and mental capacity to overcome any challenge. This blog post would not have reached critical mass unless Laura included the next part: the actions you can take.
We all know that theory and “Rah! Rah!” inspiration is great, but it won’t help us change the game and inspire others. Laura’s advice is straight to the point, and she provides three fundamental steps that are required when you want to create what you want. Check this one out. Even re-reading it helped me overcome a current challenge in my life.
4. How to be THE LUCKIEST GUY ON THE PLANET in 4 Easy Steps
James Altucher teaches us how we can essentially master our own luck. He believes in luck but then goes on to say that there are things that assist in creating it. He also links the power of habit to his becoming luckier in life.
Most notably, he tells us all that our happiness is linked to our level of so-called luck, and that all of this really comes down to the action we take. It’s no surprise when James explains how important it is to master your mental state and your emotions.
5. How To Lose Weight In Four Easy Steps
Admittedly a blog post has never made me cry before. This was that blog post for me. Aaron Bleyaert shares his story of weight loss, although within two paragraphs it becomes clear that weight loss has nothing to do with his blog post.
Aaron boldly tells the story of his romantic heartbreak, and how any one of us can become the most powerful human being on the planet. He talks in a clear voice that reveals his every thought. He shows us how we all feel that we’re not enough, and how we focus on the shallow challenges like our weight.
To turn his life around, Aaron learned that he had to go through failure (a bad breakup) to get his lazy ass to the gym. Through all of his struggles, he shows us that when we hit rock bottom, it’s patience that will bring us back to life again. You must read this blog post!

Follow This 2-Step Process to Stay Motivated When You Feel Like Nothing Is Going Right
The dialogue in your mind is the battleground where your motivation lives and dies every day. In every moment, your words are either lifting you or sabotaging your success. Unfortunately, most people are losing this battle within themselves. They are using their most powerful asset — their mental energy — to beat themselves up, play victimization games, or stop themselves from sharing their passion. (more…)

This Is How An Ordinary Person Can Make Their Country Better.
Someone asked on the internet how they can make their country better.
They considered themselves ordinary and felt that they had to be someone special to make a difference in their country, India.
Their question made me feel a bit emotional because I can relate. I too have also dreamt of making my country better.
The most common answer to this question is to get involved in politics.
Many of you reading this find politics really boring including me. I’ve learned through my own experience that politics is not the only way you can make your country better.
Here’s how you can make your country better:
Use your voice
When I was faced with the question “How do I make my country better?” I decided to use my voice.
It was this decision that changed everything. I spent every day using my voice to stand for something. I wanted to inspire the world through entrepreneurship and personal development.
So, I started using my voice by posting on LinkedIn. I used my voice and transcribed it into words to tell the citizens of my country what I think they needed to hear.
Using your voice is incredibly scary at first. As soon as you start sharing your thoughts, many people will say nothing. You’ll get almost no feedback. As your voice starts to get louder over time (probably years) the opposite will happen and you’ll attract trolls and critics.
The hardest part about using your voice is having the courage every day to use it and not being obsessed with the outcome.
By using my voice online through blogging and LinkedIn, I managed to get a 35,000 person bank to start talking about my ideas with staff and customers, and I was voted LinkedIn Australia’s Top Voice that year.
Using the power of your voice is the number one way you can change your country.
It’s in your experiences, ideas and thoughts that you can find what it is that can help your country.
In my country, Australia, we are quite well off, but we still lack a positive mindset. Some of us work jobs we hate and we like things that only money can buy. There’s a competition to get the biggest house or the most expensive car.
It’s not a problem everyone in Australia suffers from, but it’s widespread. I believe by using my own voice to inspire people to seek alternatives, I can change my country.
The results thus far suggest I’m well on the way to changing my country.
Changing your country seems like a huge task. It sounds like something only a Nelson Mandela sort of fella can achieve. That’s not true.
A simple understanding of the power of kindness can change your country.
There was this guy I read about online that changed his country by giving out free hugs because he couldn’t run in the local marathon. He embraced his kind nature and ended up impacting millions of people in his country.
Being kind is infectious because we’re wired to do it. When we see one person be kind, we want to do the same.
The problem in my country (and many others) is that we’ve sacrificed kindness for greed.
We’ve let our country’s economy become the most important factor instead of measuring the way we treat people and the ability of a country’s nation to overcome adversity together.
Kindness is so important because every one of our countries will face adversity, and kindness is the solution to that inevitable problem.
Pick up the trash
This one seems even smaller in impact. It’s not.
I found that by picking up the rubbish I saw in places like my apartment lobby, I was able to show myself that I care about my country.
When we care about our country, we choose to make it look beautiful so others can enjoy it. Something simple like picking up the trash can take you a long way towards helping your country.
Every country has an environmental problem and picking up rubbish can help solve it. If we all picked up one piece of trash, then each of our country’s would be a hell of a lot cleaner.
Don’t think you can’t make your country better
A lot of what I’ve learned, by trying to make my own country better, has come from the belief that I can have an impact.
There are so many people who want to do nothing more than complain which wastes time and energy and doesn’t make anyone’s country better.
The way you make your country better is by believing you can and taking one or two small actions to start the process.
The people that change their country believe they can.
50 Cent Scored Half a Billion Dollars – How 50 Made a Killing Off Water
In “The Big Payback: The History of the Business of Hip-Hop,” author Dan Charnas traces how rap grew from its obscure roots in the ghettos of 1970s New York to its culmination as the world’s predominant youth pop culture and a multibillion-dollar industry.
The event that epitomized just how far hip-hop had come was the headline-grabbing partnership between the rapper 50 Cent and the upstart beverage company Glaceau, the maker of VitaminWater. It may well have been the biggest deal in hip-hop history, propelling 50 Cent’s personal net worth toward a half-billion dollars.
In this excerpt, Charnas outlines how it happened. (more…)
