When we think about inspiration

Get Inspired

When we think about inspiration, what inspires us most are ordinary people who have done extraordinary things.
We appreciate when someone has the ability and willingness to be selfless, creative, innovative, or just dares to be different.

Mother Teresa. Gandhi. Martin Luther King, Jr.

All of them were ordinary people who decided that the world needed their help --
true leaders who believed that they could change the world and who, despite nearly impossible odds and tremendous opposition, weren't afraid to try.
The beautiful thing about inspiration of this kind is that "ordinary" part.
Certainly, each of these people had that charismatic ability to lead others to better things.
But each of them came from backgrounds of great poverty and difficulty.
Each of them faced giant mountains to climb.
They managed to reach the summit of those mountains not simply because they were great leaders, but because they were not afraid to be who they were.
They were authentic. They demanded authenticity in those who followed them, as well.

In a culture obsessed with measuring talent

Get Inspired

In a culture obsessed with measuring talent and ability, we often overlook the important role of inspiration.
Inspiration awakens us to new possibilities by allowing us to transcend our ordinary experiences and limitations.

Inspiration propels

a person from apathy to possibility, and transforms the way we perceive our own capabilities.
Inspiration may sometimes be overlooked because of its elusive nature.
Its history of being treated as supernatural or divine hasn’t helped the situation.
But as recent research shows, inspiration can be activated, captured, and manipulated, and it has a major effect on important life outcomes.
