Inspiration

Was trying to come up with a name for this blog. I like the word inspiration. However I mainly see it used in religious connotation, and this blog definetely has nothing to do with religion. I looked the definition up on dictionairy.com. It seems to fit perfectly the aim of this blog, so here we go with the new title.

in·spi·ra·tion

n.
    1. Stimulation of the mind or emotions to a high level of feeling or activity.
    2. The condition of being so stimulated.
  1. An agency, such as a person or work of art, that moves the intellect or emotions or prompts action or invention.
  2. Something, such as a sudden creative act or idea, that is inspired.
  3. The quality of inspiring or exalting: a painting full of inspiration.
  4. Divine guidance or influence exerted directly on the mind and soul of humankind.
  5. The act of drawing in, especially the inhalation of air into the lungs.

Donald Trump and AR Quotes.

I'll start this off with two quotes I found I had written in my journal and forgotten about until I reviewed my journal a few days ago.

Donald Trump: "Do what you love, and never give up, just never give up - and make sure you do what you love, it might be hard when you're millions of dollars in debt, but make sure you do it - and just don't give up."

Anthony Robbins: "The thing the distinguish the great people from others...is the ability to take action."

First Post

Almost two years ago, I started a website I called something like "Phoenix: From Adversity to Triumph". I posted stories detailing how some "famous" people went from a bad situation to one where they triumphed, sometimes against all odds. I thought I'd do it again, but this time in a bloggin fashion!
