Inspiration is the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. Inspiration can fill us with a new zest for what’s ahead and can allow us the insight and vision to tackle a current problem, issue or situation. On some days you can be inspired by simply walking into your office. On other days, inspiration is hard to find.
Today, when I sat down to write my weekly blog post, I was having one of those difficult days, so I turned to the internet to see if I could find something to help me on my path to inspiration. On my search, I came across this fantastic post from Convergence Coaching. In this article, Jennifer Wilson shares a list of her favorite quotes to inspire Vision, Change, Strength and Positivity.
The following stood out the most for me:
- “Skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it is has been.” – Wayne Gretsky
- “The secret of change is to focus all your energy – not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” – Socrates
- “It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.” – Vince Lombardi
- “Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today” – Will Rogers
Here’s to many more days and ways of inspiration for all of us.
