What is your inspiration?

Inspiration can come from anywhere, and out of nowhere. Inspiration is what moves us forward, as an individual and as the human race. Inspiration is what provokes us to dream big, and to try something new. Inspiration is the bud of all creation, both large and small.

I challenge you to open your mind to the inspirations in any given day. Even in the harshest of winters, and the most challenging of times, inspiration is abound – you just have you open your mind.

Yesterday, the company I work for held our annual associate form at a nearby hotel. There was the usual food and the usual people, and of course the speaker of the day. This day, much like other similar days, the speaker had a story that was very unique. No, she didn’t have to overcome adversity to become a success; she was a single mother of twins, a business executive, and trained for and competed in the Eco-Challenge. Sure, her time and energy was challenged, but adversity was not the case.

I think that’s why I liked what she had to say: she was relatively usual, in that she could have been any one of us… any one of us who had the inspiration, the drive, and the direction that she harnessed. I think she proved to me that a lot of things are possible, so long as you put your mind to them and find inspiration to go on.

So again, I challenge you to open your mind to the inspirations in your day. It is out there, just open away…
