Inspiration​ Is Wonderful



People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.

Inspiration is wonderful. It can come in the form of words, images, and actions. Great leaders naturally inspire; they possess that inspiration factor. Beyond merely providing a moment of pleasing thought, inspiration actually has the potential to change who we are. Proper emotional development is one key to creating ultimate success in life and the inspiration factor plants the seeds for greater emotional fluency within us.

​Spend time talking to people whose lives you want to be living.

Robin Sharma

The inspiration factor offers us a window through which we share, vicariously, the thoughts and feelings of the author or artist. By trying on, for a time, the point of view of a leader, we begin to see ourselves in a new way. It’s like trying on clothes at a high-end boutique. You begin to see the effect that excellently-made clothing can have. You may still go back to your favorite department store, but you’ve taken the first step in cultivating a new point of view. You’ve taken the first step in creating a new story of who you are, the world in which you live, and your place in it.

Inspiration vs. Perspiration

​The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.

Vidal Sassoon

Inspiration is wonderful, however, inspiration with tools may be the most essential factor for success. I can admire the words and actions of leaders all day but, until I take my first action, my desire remains a fantasy. An inspiring leader with a plan, based on proven principles offers the ultimate success equation:

Inspiration Factor + Thoughtful Plan + Proven Results = Ultimate Success

Likewise, working a plan without feeling inspired by it makes it pretty tough to take the first, let alone all of, the steps.

It’s Only A Path If You Travel On It

​By taking a single daily step, I am communicating to myself – and to the world – that I believe in myself and in my dream.

Cynthia Kersey

Inspiring people are inspiring precisely because they’ve gone somewhere we wish to go. They’ve attempted something new and challenged the status quo in a way that resonates with us. So, be inspired, definitely. Remember that it doesn’t stop there. Take action, and by doing so, you’ll become the one to inspire others.



P.S. – Who is your favorite inspirational leader and why?
