When we begin to bring our natural creativity into our business, the idea of being inspired always comes up, but what is inspiration? Many people have an idea that it is this mysterious thing that you must wait for and that only a select few can have. This is not the case at all. We can and should be responsible for our own inspiration. It comes from us and we can control it.
My friend left the table to visit the restroom, and I was left alone with my thoughts about our intense discussion. Had I really “heard” the message correctly in my own heart or mind?

One of the most important rules for success is “Control the Controllables.” The ultra-successful people apply this rule using both sides of the coin. In other words, every aspect of their lives within their control that brings them closer to their goals, in business, or in life is taken advantage of. If getting to the office at 6:30 am will help them reach their goals, you can bet that they will be at the office everyday at 6:30 am. One critical point must be made. Because something is within our control, does not mean we are in control of it. You are not in control of anything until you take control.
