I believe to be inspired is to be in spirit. In my previous blog post, I explained the meaning of this. My explication of inspiration is certainly comprehensible intellectually. It can speak to your mind. Now, however, I choose to transform that practical understanding of inspiration into something more emotionally stimulating. So it can also speak to your heart.
That's exactly what inspiration does to me. It not only speaks to my mind but also to my heart. That's exactly what all those inspiring videos taught me and that's exactly what I've learned.
And so I took with me the essence of all those qualities: perseverance, persistence, tolerance, and forgiveness along with many others, I took the lessons that all my past experiences have taught me, and I created something out of nothing. I created a video that embodies the core values and life lessons that make us into something bigger than ourselves. I narrated a compilation of several clips with the intention of bringing out our absolute best.
A true leader sets the right example by conjuring up ideas that inspire actions and ensuring that those actions speak louder than words. A true leader does not back down in the face of adversity, instead, he stands up for what he believes in and fights to make sure every voice is heard. A true leader does not give up after making countless mistakes, rather, she learns from her mistakes and works hard to correct them. A true leader sets out on a mission and does everything he or she can to follow it through. When confronted with what appears to be an “impossible” obstacle, true leaders do not become fearful, instead, they become inspired and work together to overcome all obstacles that lead to making a positive difference. A true leader experiences hardship just like everyone else but does not allow their failures to undermine their accomplishments. They are ordinary people who live an extraordinarily life by simply being the difference they want to see in the world.
