We must overcome the notion that we must be regular…

It robs you of the chance to be extraordinary and leads you

To the mediocre.

Welcome, Inspired Traveler!


Here in the East, we are entering the hottest month of the year and we still are operating in an over-the-top challenging economy! Pressures, in addition to the weather, are heating up! What are you doing about it? Are you – or your company – frying in this economic pressure-cooker or are you releasing the valve, letting out some steam and moving forward?


In times like these, the need for reevaluation and reinvention are critical to linking people, passion and possibilities – as we say here at InspirationInProgress. Same old, same old does not serve you or your business well!


So, even though the dog days of summer are upon us, I offer you some questions that may lead you on a path to cooler waters and to a new edge of the ocean of opportunities:

  1. Why are you here – REALLY – at this particular moment in time, doing what you do with the people you are doing it with?
  2. What doors have recently opened for you – and have you had the courage to walk through them?
  3. What doors have recently closed for you  - and do you still find yourself pulling, pushing or kicking at the door handle to be let back in?

We all need to pay close attention to opportunities around us, to take stock of the wealth of knowledge, talent and skills we have and to seek the possibilities placed before us.  Your extraordinary and unique talents will not be served without exploration and the world will not benefit from your offerings if we shy away from reinvention.


Be brave! Be magnificent! Be inspired!


Have an Inspirational Day!
