Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.

– Bill Bradley

Hi there, my name is Ben and for my whole life I have been trying to answer one simple question; How can I help You? It may sound a bit cheesy – but from an early age, I have dedicated myself to helping others through tough times. Sometimes I’m armed with a collection of inspirational words of wisdom or some strongly-worded poetry. However it comes along – I try to help. To some, my upbringing in poverty would have been looked at as a handicap in life, but for me, it was a blessing. I have learned and accepted that life is not necessarily going to be full of rainbows and unicorns each day… People struggle and life can be tough on them. For no reason that anyone can see, times become tough and that’s when you have to do as the great Jim Rohn said ‘don’t wish things were easier, wish YOU were better’.

So I’m going to tell you a secret, no matter who you are, your goals are 100 percent attainable. There is a saying ‘If you can see it and believe it – you can achieve it’. Your goals are closer than you might think to being a reality, you just need to take the first steps towards their fulfilment. And that’s where wow4u comes in. Words of Wisdom – for you.

Wow4u is, in my opinion, the greatest quote site out there because all of our content is original (except the world’s greatest quotes )… it’s not the same old / rewritten tired old phrases. We scour books and articles every day of the week – day in and day – to find inspirational words of wisdom for you, because I believe in one of the greatest phrases of all time. Knowledge is power! We don’t have to re-invent the wheel… someone, somewhere has already been through what you’re going through. There is wisdom you can tap into. And words have a way of changing our outlook on any situation and sometimes all you need is a new perspective or a small dose of motivation to help you regain your balance.

I am only 30 years old as I write this, but I have a lifetime’s worth of expertise in motivational methods. We spend hundreds of hours a month reading and learning from the most inspiring authors in the world. I’ve studied English Literature, poetry and have written thousands of inspirational paragraphs which are read by 50,000 people a day. I believe that life should be enjoyed with a smile, whatever the weather. As Brian Tracy used to say – some people complain, other’s train and gain. Some people complain about the icy weather and others put on their ice skates! In every job I’ve ever had, I have moved my way up the ladder – from shop floor to team management within a year for example – because I can see the good in people. And now, I have the privilege of reaching almost 1m visitors a month – using the world’s greatest invention: the world wide web…

WOW4U has been around for over 20 years! (first registered on 1999-03-17 can you believe) and I have been working on ‘wow’ (as we call this grand old lady!) for over two years and have had the privilege of taking over from the original owner – Cathy Pulsifer – who founded wow. She worked on the site every day for 20 years and now that I’ve taken over that duty, I can see why she was such an amazingly nice person. Cathy spent 20 years actively looking for daily inspiration and sharing it. I hope to make her proud and tend her legacy. I have to say, that for the first year, it was just a job, but I have been so inspired by the content that I was sourcing and writing that I knew my passion was to reach millions of people every month and help them to ‘take that extra step’ in life, when perhaps they need a life. Perhaps because of these writings, those people who may not have known they had it in them – found the strength they needed. So – I decided to take a leap of faith and make wow my full-time job and I hope you’re enjoying the results. The love of this site has crept up on me… I’ve found that while daily updates can be a chore (a total chore when the kiddos are crying and my wife needs some help!), but , like Cathy, I’m going to ultimately get more than I give, because of who I’ve become. What is it that Zig Ziglar says? BE.. DO.. HAVE. We must first BE the sort of person who is able to DO those things that will give us what we want to HAVE. That’s a fancy way of saying you have to first give that which you seek. I am seeking inspiration and success, so I’m going to give it to you – and hope it blesses you to succeed too.

And I feel that I’m already a winner because I’m blessed with a beautiful wife and two young little girls, Isla and Florence. You may see their pictures on the site from time to time! They are my biggest fans and they inspire me to do better every day. To work for them and to bring the best content to you, dear reader! I believe that I have been put on this green earth to inspire my fellow man (and woman and non-binary friends!) to push for more, to really stretch the boundaries of what they think is possible, and truly begin to understand the potential that is within each of us. I’m a living example of what Napoleon Hill said – ‘Whatever Your Mind Can Conceive and Believe, It Can Achieve.‘ We are lucky to live in a world that means that anyone in the world can read what I’m writing right now. How crazy is that? With a smartphone, the world’s united creative content is available at our fingertips 24/7. I know that even though I spend all day every day reading books (trying to find inspirational quotes) that I will have probably only read a fraction of 1% of the English literature of the world. So wow4u will always be having new content added, ready, and waiting for you to pick it up and use it to help you live your life to its full potential.

I think you’ll know that reading quotes will keep your (precious!) mind sharp and in good form – that positivity and good fortune go hand in hand.. Reading just one of wow4u’s pages per day will guarantee to help keep you in the best mental shape you can be in for the day ahead. I really believe that! My hobbies have always included traveling and hiking. The world is a bigger place than any of us could imagine… and I take great pleasure in learning about other cultures and people of the world. One thing I’ve learned is that everyone is ultimately connected. We all have a soul and we can help each other by encouraging one another; whether it’s to reach a new level of excellence, or if it’s to just help someone get through the day; wow4u is here for you, friends!

I really appreciate you taking the time to read my bio and I look forward to continuing to serve you as one of the main contributors of I hope that God blesses you today!

With love,

Ben G.
