What Inspires People?

What inspires you to do your best is a remarkably personal thing. Some people are inspired by sporting excellence, others by selflessness, yet others by the trappings and luxuries of wealth. One thing is certain though: anyone who has ever achieved anything could not have done it without that essential spark of inspiration.

“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” Jack London

Over the past year while we were planning the launch of Inspiration Zone, I’ve been asking all sorts of people about what inspires them in their lives. The answers were so fascinating and varied that I combined some of them into this short video that I’d love to share with you:

“There is no such thing as a lazy person; he is either sick or uninspired.” Zig Ziglar

The good news is that I’m now addicted to asking people this same question. Yes, you guessed it: I want you to tell us all the things that inspire you to succeed. And next time we meet, don’t be surprised if I point my Kodak Zi8 at you and ask you in person.

Special thanks to these people for appearing in this video:
