What is inspiration? Why does it have the ability to make us cry or reach our goals? Inspiration, is the one thing I cannot live without. The word inspiration comes from being “in spirit”. When we are “in spirit” we have the ability to feel more compassion for others and their stories touch us so deeply that for an instant we tap into who we really are; Spirit.
One may wonder “What does spirit have to do with business?” My answer is everything; because that’s what you really are, pure spirit. When you feel inspired you are connected to others and your true self. As an entrepreneur, it helps you attract your ideal clients and colleagues, it helps you feel joy and peace. In addition, inspiration helps you keep going when you feel you have nothing more to give.
