Inspiration is valuable because it can help you achieve our goals and dreams. It can be found in many places from books, movies and conversations with friends and family. It could also come from within by reflecting on your own experiences and values.

It doesn't matter if inspiration comes from internal or external presuppositional origins. Inspiration can be a powerful tool to help stay motivated and focused on your goals.

After we develop perseverance, inspiration can be found in the words of those who have come before us such as the wise words of Mahatma Gandhi or Martin Luther King Jr
