What each must seek in his life …
is something out of his own unique potentiality for experience,
something that never has been and never could have been experienced
by anyone else.

— Joseph Campbell

Welcome, Inspired Traveler!

I have long been a fan of Joseph Campbell and have sought wisdom through his writings, challenging as they are. But the above quotation speaks to realizing our potential and, well, unleashing potential is our focus at InspirationInProgress.

Campbell refers to “the hero’s journey” and so I pose: What is yours? What part of the journey are you standing in, at this moment? Just hearing the call to new adventures? Have you crossed the threshold? Are you currently facing tests and challenges? Are you being rewarded for your efforts? Are you being transformed by the journey? Or, are you returning home, bearing gifts? These are the journey stages outlined by Campbell’s seminal work, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, but they apply to us in our current state as well.

The point, my Inspired Travelers, is that wherever we are on our paths, we have the opportunity to transform our potential into real possibilities. If we take a few daring steps along the way:

Say Yes! Step into it.
Accept the test. Grow stronger.
Heed the call. Listen and Act.
Take others along for the ride. Inspire and Transform.

As leaders in your organizations, families and communities, realizing your own potential strengthens and mobilizes those around you. Claim your future and fall into it. The net will catch you and your gifts and return you, energized, to the world, via a new path on the journey!
