what it is inspiration is a part of any individual’s life and it can come in any shape or form.

Call to action We created a twitter and asked people to share what inspires them with an image and 140 character tweet.

What was found A pattern emerged from the different types of inspiration so we broke our results into categories: What inspires you to create, to do, to be.

take away People everywhere are inspired everyday by places, things, people and ideas. Sometimes permanent and other times fleeting, inspiration is a catalyst for action and creation helping people be something they only had a glimpse of before. Get inspired to create, to do and to be. Create feelings, works of art, stories, meals and memories. Do teach. do work hard. do remember the importance of staying young at heart.

be strong and be proud. Learn to say thanks. Experience the drive to succeed. inspireous started as an idea and turned into much more. It is now a collection of inspirations that can be used to motivate others to take a look at their lives and ask themselves where they find the inspiration to get up in the morning and experience the world around them.

Now it’s your turn.


thank you
