15 Beautiful, Inspirational Wallpapers For Your Desktop

Attitude, not Altitude, Wallpaper

Some of you might know from my articles that I used to run a popular network of desktop enhancement sites back in 1999-early 2000s. At that time I designed wallpapers, winamp skins and ICQ skins on a wide range of themes.

Today, I thought I would make some inspirational wallpapers for you guys. 😀 These wallpapers include inspirational quotes — some by me (basically the ones where I didn’t credit any author name), and some by top people in the world — which will serve as wisdom to live our best life. It took some time to source for the images that conveyed the right emotions, pick the right quotes, composite the photos and do the typography, so I hope you like the end products!

I’ve created 15 wallpapers in total, each conveying its own unique message, so pick the one that resonates with you the most now and best applies to your current life situation, and set that as your wallpaper. You can even print it out if you want! Bookmark this page so you can return again and again to switch to different wallpapers.

Alternatively, you can download all the wallpapers and use a wallpaper-cycling software like Background Cycler which will change the wallpapers for you at a set interval. The wallpapers are available in sizes of 1600×1200, 1280×1024, 1024×768 and 800×600 as they are the most common screen resolutions. If you use other screen sizes, simply pick the 1600×1200 version and resize.

If you own a blog/site, you are also free to put the wallpapers on your site (with credit and linkback to Personal Excellence @ PersonalExcellence.co) and share with your friends and family too! Enjoy everyone! :)

They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” ~ Steve Jobs
