Inspiration could be found just about anyplace 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 group. You may get inspiration from a Quote or a Video. It’s all around us when you look. It could be acheived if you search for inspiration and recognize it.

Here’s what Inspires me
What inspires me the most is assisting 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 recieved 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 did not have 1 to play with. Everyday something or someone inspires me. Why? Because I decide 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!

My inspiration for the week is for my family and me to lose weight. I will keep you informed on the progress to hold me accountable.

Have a Wonderful Day,
