I am inspired by human potential. When I think of what can be instead of just what is, I am inspired. We have the unique gift of being able to choose our responses to situations. No other life form can do that. When circumstances present themselves to us that are not what we would desire, we have the ability to think it through and make our own decisions as to how we will react.
By realizing that we can think, plan, and act on our plans, we can create and design our future. Good thoughts generally result in good outcomes. Then when things sometimes don't turn out as planned, we have the gift of being able to adjust and turn a problem into opportunity. We can design our futures, for the most part.
That is what gets me inspired and excited!
