THE Maven Inspiration Listicle

We’re all invariably looking for modus operandi to be inspired and motivated at all times. Some of us resort to social media while others like attending workshops, picking self-help books or following a guru!


Now, why do you think we seek inspiration?

Let’s delve into a spiritual angle here! Legend has it that we are all born to serve a “purpose” and till the time we don’t figure ‘that’ out (at a subconscious level) , we feel flustered. But once we have most of it (our goals) figured out, we hustle to keep ourselves galvanised at all times!

I somewhere strongly feel I know my purpose in life and to keep myself vivacious at all times, I follow a lot of YouTubers and bloggers and make a (strenuous) constant effort to READ!


So feast your eyes folks ‘cos in this blog post I will be sharing a bunch of things that I have researched upon that you guys might like to follow! Let’s crack on!

Sheryl Sanberg started trending shortly after her Ted Talk on ‘Women in the workforce’ , in 2010. She is a COO of Facebook who is one of the many reasons behind Google being where it is today! In her book ‘Lean In’, she talks about the things she dealt with being a woman in the workforce and also throws light on the fact that a partner has a prodigious role to play in a woman’s success. For every girl out there, this book is a must read! If you haven’t read it yet, here you go-
“LEAN IN”


I guess 5 is just the number for one post. I hope you guys spare 15 minutes to look into each of these and start adding these facets to your everyday inspiration list (… and you can thank me later 😛 ).
Also, this is not it! There’s going to be another docket coming up soon!

Stay tuned and Stay Inspired!
