Inspiration comes from many sources. Music. Film. People. Religion. Spirituality. Travel. Food. Inspiration leads to inventions, self-development, creation, and even meditation. My favorite quotes, poem excerpts, and biblical scriptures inspire me to live my best life while vibrating at the highest frequency. They also put things in perspective and serve as a reference mechanism for motivation.
Motivational messages can increase work performance, affect decision making, impact student success, influence learning and behavior, among scads of other results. I pray you are moved by some or all of the adages listed below.
