These sources can come when you least expect it, it's around every corner if you open your mind and look for it. The bottom line is, inspiration will make you and others feel good for the moment, the day, the week or even a lifetime. I just depends on how frequently you choose to bring inspiration in your life. That's the key, you must choose to find inspiration.

What is Inspiration?
Inspiration can be defined in many ways. You must first choose your interpretation of the meaning and apply what makes sense to you in order for it to work.

Inspiration can be found just about anywhere in life. If you sit down in a crowded area, it may be the mother who teaches her children or someone who opens a door for a stranger. It may be from a Leader uses inspiration in his speech to motivate his team. You may get inspiration from a quote or a Video. It's all around us when you look. It can be achieved if you search for inspiration and recognize it.

Here's what Inspires me
What inspires me the most is helping others achieve success in life and business. When others achieve more, it makes me feel like I have given back to those what I have received in my own life. My Son, when he leads his team in battle on the football field and all the training leading up to gameday or when he compliments an older lady that she looks beautiful today. When my daughter gave a boy her toy because he didn't have one to play with. Everyday something or someone inspires me. Why? Because I choose to look for these small little events that will touch my mind and my heart.

So Today, go out an compliment someone, you just may make their day. If you do, You Inspire me!

Have a Wonderful Day,
