Thomas Edison once said, “Genius is one part inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.”

And while there’s no discounting the tremendous value of the latter, the former is what sets the wheels in motion.

Inspiration awakens us to new possibilities by allowing us to transcend our ordinary experiences and limitations.

Inspiration propels a person from apathy to possibility, and transforms the way we perceive our own capabilities.

Without inspiration, we will all be hitting our heads up against the same challenges day after day.


The benefit of having an inspiration is that you will breathe without having to fear or cower.

Inspiration gives us both the means and the motivation to rise above, to be creative, to grow closer to our goals, to learn from others, and achieve enhanced well-being.

Inspiration has a major effect on important life outcomes.

And that is why.

An inspiration is a picture that speaks volume of what you are, who you are and what you represent.
