Alas, when you need to delve into a treasure trove of inspirational birthday wishes on the web to uncover the pearl of a birthday message, your criteria suddenly gets broader (in other words, a little more complicated) and it's harder to choose the perfect one.
There are, however, certain rules of thumb that make the whole selection process easier.
Things tend to get a little more complicated when you have an overwhelming number of inspirational birthday wishes to choose from. But there is an easy way to pick the perfect inspirational birthday messages for your loved ones. You just need to adhere to these three rules of thumb:
Rule 1: Before you give the birthday girl or boy an inspiring birthday wish, determine the specific type of message you would like to convey. General messages can be inspiring but tend to be less impactful than specific ones. And there are many ways to inspire someone.

Rule 2: Choose inspirational birthday wishes that will be meaningful to the birthday boy or girl (not what you think is meaningful). The quickest way to turn off anyone is preaching what's important to you and only you. To see what I mean, think of all the times you've received an unwanted lecture from a friend or family member.
Rule 3: Pick inspirational birthday messages that will both inspire the ones you love and, even more so, make them feel special and loved. This is, after all, their birthday (and everyone deserves to feel special and loved on their special day). This calls for inspirational birthday wishes that are also heartwarming.
Whatever type of inspiration you need, you'll find it here. The inspirational birthday wishes below cover lots of ground. The bottom line? Sending a birthday message that’s meaningful, inspiring and heartwarming to the birthday boy or girl is the way to go.
