Who or What Inspires You?
I love to acquire new role models each week. These individuals teach me the value of hard work, ethics, trust and caring. They also show me that individual success is not relevant in the world of servant leadership, and achieving a variety of goals can be attained along the way as well as at the finish line.
Our jobs are hard and continue to get harder each year. The how of what is done is important but so is the why. Seek inspiration and motivation from everyone you touch. From that perspective, your view of the world may change for the better.
If you want to be inspired, change your personal "batteries" from time to time. You will be glad you did!
Tell us in the comments below who or what inspires you. Hand how do you recharge your batteries?
