If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it. -- Margaret Fuller
I had an experience that has taken my calling to do this work to a whole new level, and I have experienced in my own life that nothing that I do gives me greater joy than when I am in service to others. I have not read many books, so I cannot say they are my main source of inspiration.
I enjoy reading humorous short inspirational funny stories, motivational quotes and inspirational poems. When you have received inspiration, you have been in touch with something greater than yourself.
Receiving inspiration and finding your voice is often imagined by new artists as something that happens like a flash of lightning - as if it’s an idea you must wait for, which comes to you suddenly like a bolt from the blue. For as long as he has walked the earth, man has looked to the heavens in search of divine guidance, inspiration, and wisdom.
Why do we have to be so serious all the time, who say’s that we have to be like that, It never ceases to amaze me how a person receives what they need, just at the right time in their life and how that guidance comes in many different forms, but is like a jigsaw puzzle and they receive one piece of the puzzle at a time.
We all have so much to offer, to ourselves and each other, life does not have to be a drudge, or a struggle it is the most exciting thing imaginable. Inspiring others isn’t easy. If you really want to inspire others to do something then this ‘something’ should be a big part of your life.
Anyone can make a difference in someone’s life. It doesn’t take any money or any special skills to do this, just a willingness to make a difference. You can take action, you can make a difference, and you can respond in a positive, creative way to any situation.
You can do whatever must be done to live the life of your dreams. In order to do so you must let go of the limiting beliefs you use to hold yourself back.
Don’t just think about it, or talk about it, or plan for it, or wish you could have it done. Make the effort right now to make it happen. Look around you. See and appreciate what a magnificent world you live in and what a tremendous opportunity you have to make a difference. With what you say, you can get some attention. With what you do, again and again, you can build real and lasting credibility.
