Just don’t give up trying what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.
Ella Jane Fitzgerald
While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
Apple Computer Inc.
There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the sake of the work. This is where the respect and the love and the devotion come in - that we do it to God, to Christ, and that's why we try to do it as beautifully as possible.
There's only us, there's only this. Forget regret, or life is yours to miss. No other road, no other way, no day but today.
Fires can't be made with dead embers, nor can enthusiasm be stirred by spiritless men. Enthusiasm in our daily work lightens effort and turns even labor into pleasant tasks.
Neale Donald Walsch
TEACHING BY EXAMPLE
That's all a man can hope for during his lifetime- to set an example- and when he is dead, to be an inspiration for history.
Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and when to hold on tight. Stop rushing. Don't be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop apologizing all the time. Learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph. Spend time with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. Stop giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy it. Finally, know who you are.
The stories of past courage...can teach, they can offer hope, they can provide inspiration. But they cannot supply courage itself. For this each man must look into his own soul.
John F. Kennedy
Greatness is more than potential. It is the execution of that potential. Beyond the raw talent. You need the appropriate training. You need the discipline. You need the inspiration. You need the drive.
Eric A. Burns
I guess I can’t really change the past since it’s now history and I certainly cannot change tomorrow, for I am not promised it, but I can change the way I live today. This realization in itself is the root of not only who I want to be tomorrow, but who I am working on being today. Never again do I want to fail anything without an attempt; I want push myself to my fullest potential, and if that means that I fall a few times along the way then so be it, but I will no longer allow myself to just give up. I deserve better, and it is time that I start believing that.

Personal Stories About ‘Inspiration’
"An Awakening"Submitted by Karen R.
When I was diagnosed with Breast cancer a few years back, I reacted like most who receive a cancer diagnose; first thing came to mind was a “death sentence”. However, I found out later that it was truly “an awakening”. I began questioning God, why would you do this to me? What had I done in life so bad to have...

A couple of years ago, my wife and I purchased a new truck. I took my father-in-law out for a test drive to show it off, and I could tell the horsepower and all the extras impressed him. As we turned a corner, however, a truck pulled out in front of us. We have all seen a truck like this truck before. White,...

My hero is my twin sister who is currently fighting her for her life against breast cancer. Mind you this is her third battle with cancer. Her first battle occurred at the age of 15 when she was diagnosed with cancer (Hodgkins Disease). She endured surgery, radiation and the loss of hair but survived her battle...
Jim TSubmitted by Taylor
My hero was not a war hero, a fireman, or superman. In fact, he wasn’t anything in particular. Jim was an elderly man who sat in the back of my church with his frail wife. Never did he make a scene, or draw any attention to himself. Never did he ask for anything, even when he most needed it. But, he was always...

'Inspiration is the language of a free spirit'
with love to all Mary Ann Plamenac motivational life coach
I took my diagnosis of skin cancer (which includes surgeries and burning) and turned it around to help kids know about addictions (mine was to tanning) and skin cancer. I turned a negative into a positive for both myself and the students I talk to.

Inspiration is an internal event. I seemed to have locked the door, yet got some serious help opening it through an online mentoring site (their name says it all!) called FTRnation.com (aka Free Thinking Renegades). I realized my thinking wasn't free, and had to find my way back to it. Loved your post and other comments. Thanks for the info!!

Inspiration is speaking the words that sway people.
Bruce Willingham, Warner Robins, Ga
The quote that gets my day started all the time is Live, Laugh, Love. I hope these words will inspire people all day.
Ms. Richardson, Flordia
Including others can be as simple as sharing your ethnic/family meal with someone that different than you. I shared my favorite cookbook and recipe with a co-worker of a different ethnic background. He approached me during break and asked for help to make American food. His child is in school and is exposed to many new tastes. I was honored.
Dolores Phifery, York, PA
It is such a wonderful site for the youngsters . Everyone should know the values, motivation and inspiration to all. I really enjoy and appreciate for your valuable quotes, videos and audios. Thank you so much.
The world definitely needs more encouragement and inspiration. Love all your advertising spots on T.V. If more people took your messages to heart and tried to pass them on, what a much more pleasant world this would be. Keep up the great work! I'm really a believer in random acts of kindness. Wish more folks felt the same!
Carolyn H. Smith, Brandon, Mississippi
I've been logging on to your site for about a year or so. I must tell you that it is truly amazing the way I have changed my ways and behavior. The way I act and react to simple day to day obstacles have changed for the better thanks to you.
A.Wickramage, Sri Lanka
Thanks so mcuh for all your wonderful messages of hope, inspiration, kindness...doing the right thing! In this world of "me first" and endless cynicism, you provide the proverbial beacon of light, in an otherwise dark world. Keep it up, its working.
Bruce Tipton, Carlsbad, Ca
I greatly appreciate your commercials that encourage and inspire us to do better, be better, and be a blessing.

Thank you for producing the "Inspire" TV spot "You Raise me Up". It is so refreshing to see something positive on TV. Keep it up. It is very much appreciated!
Win T., Lake Placid, Florida
I am a nursing home nurse, and every time that I work, I smile. Some nurses say that I am little crazy. But I explain to them that the smile is contagious and chronic. The more you do, the more you receive and is more natural. Thank you for this little corner, I really enjoy and appreciate yours advertising.
