Bulletin Board

by Tara Agacayak on February 24, 2010

Words inspire me.
When I hear or read something that stops me in my tracks, I scribble it down on whatever scrap of paper I can find and pin it to the bulletin board above my desk.
Toward the end of last year my bulletin board got completely out of hand, so I took down the notes, but didn’t want to get rid of them before recording them somewhere.
Somewhere is here.
And these are the notes that acted as my mantras at different points of 2009.


From friends and mentors. These came at a time when I needed them desperately:

  • No act of love, however small, is ever wasted. (Aesop)
  • You have everything you need to live the life of your dreams. (Sema Basol)
  • You’re finding your way. (Bonita Banducci)
  • Let the beauty we love be what we do. (Rumi)
  • Be amazing.


From Neil Donald Walsch:

  • Masters create their own guidelines.
  • I can do it my way! (Me to myself)
  • Demonstration always preceeds experience.
  • Where am I going? Who is going with me?
  • Living life as an expression of the highest vision of yourself.



A message I received in a fortune cookie:

  • Like the moon, reflect to others what they most need to see in themselves.


From a Harvey Nichols ad that I found in a magazine after finishing Twenty Trunk Shows:

  • Bir Ruya Gercek Oldu (A Dream Come True)


Kevin Kelly from his TED talk on the Next 5,000 days of the web:

  • Personalization = Transparency
  • Get better at believing in the impossible.
  • Attention is a currency.


Tony Robbins in his TED talk on why we do what we do:

  • Decision is the ultimate power :: Decisions shape destiny.
  • Do you beliefs guarantee you will reach your destination?


From me to myself:

  • Speak sentences that leave room for possibility.
  • Don’t quit what’s working :: Stop what’s not working.
  • I engage only in activities that are NUTRITIOUS to my MIND, BODY & SPIRIT.
My relationships are harmonious
My work is fruitful
My body is healthy
My fortune is unlimited
My diet is nutritious
My words are powerful
My mind is sharp
My life is joyful
My dreams are reality
My possibilities are endless
What words or phrases inspire you?
