The Gift of Inspiration

by Dale

So often we don’t think of inspiration as a tangible gift.  But ponder this – Think of a time when you were up against something that was really challenging.  Something that strained all of your resources – interior and exterior.  Did you have someone encouraging you? Was there someone there cheering you on, acting as a good sounding board, telling you that you could reach the goal, that you had the right stuff?

We all need encouragement at times. It is a wonderful surprise to have something come in the mail, email or phone that makes you feel like someone has your back.

Have a look at this video:  A Game of Hope

Think about how it makes you feel and tell me –  “Do you think there’s a place for inspiration in your toolbox?”

One of my favorite quotes goes like this: ” People will often forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.”

I think that inspiration is probably the most powerful and the most underused tool.
I hope you will share your inspiration as you move ahead with your vision!
