I love listening and watching individuals, groups of people, events and things that inspire me. I have learnt that great motivators are born out of authentic ‘skin for skin’ inspiration–such that they experience it themselves. Remember, you cannot take people where you have never been.
True motivation cannot be mimicked! It is laced with a pinch of personal experience! You cannot mimic the “I have a Dream” speech even to a group of people who never heard it and get them motivated like Dr. Martin Luther King Jnr did.

My calling in life is to Inspire Hope and Enrich Lives world-wide. Therefore my biggest mandate on a daily basis is to stay inspired above the level of life. I have gone to the extend of documenting my daily inspirations and graphing them. It is that important to me.
“My biggest mandate on a daily basis is to stay inspired above the level of life”.
There is nothing as beautiful as heartfelt and authentic inspiration:
These and many are instances of inspiration to me. Yet one thing I ask myself all day every day is this: If I am a motivator that I am, who motivates me? Who or what inspires me?
There definitely is something.
For this visionary, there are several sources of my motivation and inspiration:
I have generated loads of quotes and dozens of articles on this blog ostensibly from my life frustrations. I am what I am today because of those frustrations and because of what I learned in overcoming them.
On a daily basis, I have to at least read, watch or listen to a particular mentor. My two top Mentors at the moment are: Dr. Mike Murdock and Peter J Daniels. I have generated powerful quotes original with me but inspired by the words of these men…and many others.
Nothing exercises my mind and stretches it like my jogging excursions do. I get very many life nuggets every time I go out there to jog. These nuggets apply directly in my life. For example, I learnt how to track my performance from my excursions as shown in this post.
My wife and I love watching singing competitions like “Britain Has Got Talent”, “The X Factor” and “The Voice”. In there, we come face to face with real life ordinary people like already mentioned, whose stories bring tears to our eyes.
To be honest, I would have given up long time ago. My wife would have too. Yet against all odds so far, we have remained hopeful. No one is insulated from setbacks in life…but our strength to endure and remain relevant to our causes in life is in itself a source of inspiration.
We go through the worst of circumstances with our heads high…knowing that against all odds, even against hope itself, that tomorrow will bring better tidings. There have been times where hope alone has helped us endure shame, embarrassment and possible ridicule.
I get close to God as much as possible. Whenever I am out of synch, it is mostly because I am out of the presence of God for a while. Floods upon floods of instructing, wisdom, thought, inspiration, guidance and learning come from my sessions of prayer, mediation, and Bible study. Lot’s of what you read from Life Signatures come directly from the throne room of God.
These and many others are my daily source of inspiration. What are yours?
