This is Joe from The Greatest Inspirational Quotes. Thank you for subscribing to the INSPIRATIONS Newsletter. Last month was the first issue I shared in a long time. It's great to be back. I received plenty of positive comments from last months issue and I look forward to sharing and connecting with all of you over the following months.

2. Inspiration in the News - Pit Bull Saves Mom and Child.
3. Coming Soon - 5 Regrets of The Dying.
4. Quote for the month

"You do get to a certain point in life where you have to realistically, I think, understand that the days are getting shorter, and you can't put things off thinking you'll get to them someday. If you really want to do them, you better do them. There are simply too many people getting sick, and sooner or later you will. So I'm very much a believer in knowing what it is that you love doing so you can do a great deal of it."
Nora Ephron (1941-2012) in "I Remember Nothing: And other Reflections" (2010).

1. The Ultimate You
Learning Strategies hosted the Ultimate You Mindfest in June. The mindfest was pretty popular with readers of the Greatest Inspiraitonal Quotes. Congrats to all of you who participated and thank you all for sharing your experiences with me.

My experience with the mindfest. The biggest take away for me was:
1. A reminder to create my life, not just make a living.
2. Put my subconscious mind to work for me.

There were 6 paraliminals and coaching sessions that gave me some great ideas to make this happen.

Over the next few months I will begin a series of articles on how to be more effective at creating the life you desire.

If you missed the Mindfest, I recommend checking out my review of Paraliminals, which I will post at the end of July, until then you can go directly to the website at Learning Strategies

If you're busy and pressed for time, paraliminals are a great way to boost your self-growth and make the most out of your life in just about 20 minutes a day.


Do you love animals? I do, especially dogs. Here is an inspiring story of how one pit bull saved a woman and her child.

65 Pound Pit Bull Becomes Guardian Angel:
Stops Robbery And Saves Mother And 2-Year Old Child Being Held At Knife Point!!!

It had been a good day. “Angela” and her 2-year old son were leaving a playground in Port Charlotte, Florida. That’s when a man cut her off in the parking lot. He was holding a knife and told her not to make any sudden movements. Angela didn’t know what to do. She was physically at the mercy of her attacker and paralyzed with fear about what might happen to her little son.

That’s when it happened... A guardian angel, in the form of a 65 pound pit bull, emerged from nowhere. The super-hero dog charged the attacker and chased him off. “I don’t think the dog physically attacked the man, but he went at him and was showing signs of aggression, just baring his teeth and growling and barking. It was clear he was trying to defend this woman,” Animal Control Lt. Brian Jones told Pet Pulse. “I don’t know what this man’s intentions were, but it is very possible this dog saved her life.”

The exceptional part of the story, Jones said, is that the dog had never met or even seen the people it so quickly jumped to defend.

“You hear about family dogs protecting their owners, but this dog had nothing to do with this woman or her kid,” Jones said. “He was like her guardian angel.”

As soon as the attacker ran off, Angela quickly put her son in their car. The next thing she knew, the 65 pound pit bull was sitting in the back seat with her son, Jordan. The dog looked like he was smiling. Police believe the dog is probably not a stray, but rather, a lost pet because he is so well behaved. So, the hero of the day was brought to a shelter with the hope his owner would find him. But, Angela said if no one claims him after 5 days, she will adopt him. She has already named him “Angel.”

“It’s funny, that someone’s irresponsibility could have saved someone’s life,” Jones said of Angel’s possible owners.

“I don’t know what his (the thief's) intentions were — I don’t know why he did it, but I’m glad that — we call him Angel — I’m glad that Angel showed up because I don’t know what would have happened,” she added. Pit bulls are banned in several cities, including Miami-Dade County in Florida. If Angela had gotten attacked in a different part of Florida, Angel would have been "illegal" and most likely put to sleep.

The dog represents all that is best in man.
-Etienne Charlet

Being a responsible pet owner is a big responsibility, but the payoffs are even bigger.

3. Quote for the month

Even if I don't reach all my goals,
I've gone higher than I would have
if I hadn't set any.
- Danielle Fotopoulis
