Inspire Yourself

INSPIRE_ME_LOGO1Now, start your journey as a seller and as a person. I began my journey before Christmas 1972 by selling post cards door-to-door. Now I´m 50 years old, with unique experience over 30 years.

   As a 45 year old man, in 2007, I was dissatisfied with my life. As I looked at the former paratrooper in the mirror, I knew that I had to make changes. The voice within was so powerful, that I started to seek ways for a true change of lifestyle. And as they say…

If there is a will, there is a way!

   With my willpower I was lucky to get rid of my excess weight and anti–hypertension drugs which I had been continually (perennially) swallowing for more than six years. As I´m writing, in spring 2009, I´ve done physical training for two years, given seven…

   Blood donations and run a half marathon. Now in 2011, when editing and translating the English version, the physical training has continued and number of blood donations has risen. I´m about to run my first full marathon in Athens, Greece. Read my journey at Markku Tauriainen´s Blog.

   Willpower is everything, if you want to succeed and grow as a person ― overcome the challenges, set and achieve goals. Then man can write in stone proving his work ethic and the importance of willpower.

   Olympic winners ― Willpower´s big Finnish names are: Paavo Nurmi, 1920–1928, Lasse Viren, 1972–1976, Juha Mieto, 1976–1984, Seppo Räty 1988–1992, Janne Ahonen 2002-2006. Veikka Gustafsson, is the world´s greatest mountaineer. There are others… yours in your country:

Level your mind with them ― be one of them!”

Paavo Johannes Nurmi was a Finnish runner (13 June 1897 – 2 October 1973). Nurmi won a total of nine gold and three silver medals in the 12 events in which he competed at the Olympic Games from 1920 to 1928. In 1932, Nurmi was unable to compete at the Olympics, as he had received money for his running and was thus considered a professional. Paavo Nurmi photo: “The Flying Finn” Paris 1924

    • Tracy, so I have found – one very efficiency tool is to ´write on paper´what you really really want in your life. One approaching queastion you may ask from yourself: “Am I aiming high enough and am I feeding the ego or the soul – deeper purposes will open the tin can.” Personally, I´m aiming for stars..

  1. it might sound cheesy but after watching a motivational speaker on TV (what seemed so silly at that time) I have caught myself many times telling myself “Yes You Can” and it has changed my life in many ways
    I am quite impressed with your journey Markku, and wish you the best of luck with the TauriSol project

    best

    • Louis, this all sounds “YES” to me. Don´t hesitate. When we humans have issues what we do not like – the subconscious mind starts looking solution for it and the demand rises. To support greatly your “own forces” you had to write on paper the main goals (goal setting is goal getting) and when you have it/ the core, you polish it daily base. The change is the delivery, it will come! To go all the way – we need persevance. Perseverance grows and wells up from deep inside, as I stated at the first two INSPIRE ME -parts earlier on this blog. When you feel lucky, then everything is right and the universe is dancing with you =) and you are fulfilling the purpose of your life.
