Good morning streakers!
I hope your day starts out as good as mine did. I kept my streak alive and that makes a big difference in my day. It’s a warm summer day here in Arizona.
Today, I want to talk about inspiration. One of the definitions of inspiration is to influence or impel an action. For a long time in my life, I never paid much attention to others and certainly did not choose others as a role model, regardless of their standing in society or effects on history. I have no idea why this was but lately, I’ve looked to others for inspiration and allowed their actions to impel me to do things I wouldn’t otherwise do, like write a blog.
The inspiration for this blog specifically comes from Chri Guillebeau, author of The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future and Side Hustle: From Idea to Income in 27 Days. (I recommend them both.). I listen to Chris’s podcast called SideHustle School on a regular basis and I appreciate the positive reinforcement and constructive advice he gives on his show. Listening to this podcast and reading his books help me stay motivated to step outside my comfort zone. I have starteda sidehustle yet, at least not one that makes much money but I apply the principles to other areas of my life.
The idea of consitently doing something on a regular basis helps me with learning the guitar. The idea that I can reach for the stars helped me write songs for a play, others sang these songs, on stage, in front of paid customers just this weekend! That is amazing to me. Nothing short of a miracle to me.
For me, life gets better when I keep a positive outlook on life and it gets worse when I dwell in the negativity and sit on my pity pot.
Thank you for reading this and I hope you found something useful here today.
