The Inspiration Continues
Yes, I am in one of those moods. If you can read between the lines over the last few weeks or so you may catch that I'm up against a bit of a challenging point in life. Nobody is sick, in trouble, or lost; I'm just taking on some new things and encountering a few speed bumps along the way.
When faced with adversity I look for sources of inspiration. No matter how many challenges I may be facing, there is definitely someone that has overcome more difficult circumstances. In addition, I believe that nearly everyone you meet is a source of inspiration in one way or another. You can take a page out of someone's book any time.
I've got a very busy day and rest of the year coming up so I am finding inspiration to succeed everywhere. I need to. Yes, I am in on how corny I am. Deal with it. I like to focus on being positive.
Here are a few other people that I can be inspired by on any given day:
Sofia Mulanovich: Check out the video and watch her surf. Enough said.
Lindsay Stordahl: Dedicated runner, outdoor enthusiast, animal advocate, and all-around cool chick. Lindsay's focus and dedication is something I enjoy following on her blog That Mutt.
Mike Southern: Golf instructor extraordinaire Mike is such a thorough and thoughtful writer. He's even taken on a lefty golfer and is writing an entire series about the golf swing that describes the lefty perspective. Check him out on his Ruthless Golf page.
I also have quite a few friends and colleagues that inspire me in little ways all the time and they just don't realize it!
Who inspires you? Where do you look to for inspiration?
