“You are such an inspiration!”
“You inspire us! We are proud of you!”
“You are really inspiring!”
We easily blurt those out every time we see an inspirational icon, we hear a great achievement, or when we hear an inspiring story. You know, like those typical rags-to-riches Cinderella story... winning against all odds... an impossible feat accomplished... or a David slaying his personal Goliath.
Easily, we are inspired and there’s nothing wrong with that... but what do we make of that inspiration?
How many of us can really raise our hands and claim, “I’ve succeeded because I am inspired by this person?” Or say, “I’ve changed after hearing that story.”
