Who are you inspiring and who can you inspire?
Do you feel more inspired some days than others? Probably. We all do.
But inspiration is not just something that happens by chance, or as “divine inspiration” as it’s sometimes called.
Inspiration is something to aspire to. Something to look for. Something to find. Something to choose. Something to find in others and seek out. You can find it in places you didn’t expect to find it. Think about who you are inspiring, you may not even know that you just inspired someone by a simple task.
It is our choices that show who we really are, far more than our abilities.
Day to day routines and challenges need inspiration too.
So go find it. Find inspiration every day in the work that you do. Don’t wait for it to find you.
Inspiration is finding something that excites you.
What can you get excited about today? What could inspire you today?
And when you choose inspiration, imagine the impact you will have on others!
Because there’s nothing quite as inspiring as being in the vicinity of someone who is inspired. It’s very contagious.
Who are you inspiring and who can you get inspiration from?
Go spread the inspiration!
