I could write about this subject for days.
Seems scarce these days to find things or people that inspire.
Most people want to see themselves as something more
than they actually are -- as though they should be an inspiration
to others -- when they are really quite mundane or less.
I've found a great deal of inspiration in many things over
the years but nothing inspires me more than those who do
something very well or better than everyone else.
Some people just work harder and more fiercely at things
and demonstrate grit, commitment and ferocity when it
comes to excellence and, by doing so, summon us all to the
alter of ambition and perfection, kicking and screaming usually.
I don't know how many people I've met over the last decade
who were given the opportunity to improve themselves
their lives, others around them and the world in general
and simply sputtered out because it required something..
