Everybody needs to be inspired. It motivates us to excel, to grow, to choose to live! In our personal life as well in professional life. Inspiration comes in many different forms. A lot of people, including myself, get inspired by other people and their stories. For example the late Steve Jobs, Einstein or Jimmy Hendrix. People that changed the world. The world of lifestyle, physics or music. Their stories and their lives are inspirational for others. They have become icons in their area or even heroes. They are a daily inspiration for millions of people nowadays. But they were inspired themselves before. Archimedes was inspired in his bathtub about the working of masses. His famous word Eureka is well known, meaning: Now I know.
Every inspirator that we know was inspired once before he or she became an inspirator. Inspiration can be seen as a chain of ideas and visions, where one inspirator can ignite the next inspirator.
People can get inspired by music, literature, movies, arts, nature and children. Little things that can change our minds. But also by great events like TedX or stories of other people. I call them ignoters.
All those ingnoters of inspiration are the start of a new story. A new story in your life, a new story in your career. So that one day you can be an inspiration for others. Your children, your friends or your co-workers.
