Inspiration

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others”

 Nelson Mandela opened his inauguration speech with these words by Marianne Williamson. His speech went on to inspire millions more.

Inspiration is the key component that can motivate so many of us into pushing ourselves further and getting the measurable results that we want to achieve. In this world of ever-changing information, we are consistently learning, creating, developing and sharing the stories that matter, that make a difference and that shape our world.

These stories inspire people to go on and develop their ideas, create new brands and deliver key messages. Realising dreams and working towards making the world a better place, I am reminded of the great Steve Jobs who once told his story of how he dropped out of college to take up a calligraphy class where he learned the beauty of typography. Steve went on to apply this knowledge when developing the now infamous typefaces for the Apple computer. He was inspired, and he went on to inspire so many more.

We are all part of the bigger picture and we all have something to offer and much more to contribute. Your background in finance, communications, technology, business, design, marketing, social and human resources…whatever your skillsets or interests, one cannot survive without the other. Our interaction ensures we continue to innovate and grow by sharing our knowledge and achieving our common goals.

It’s always good to ask yourself: “Who or what has inspired your work or shaped your world today?” But more importantly, what will you do to inspire others for a better tomorrow?
