I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
Several large corporations are taking advantage of the economic slow down to store more monies in their reserve accounts. These companies will take advantage of tax breaks by laying off thousands of people. This experience can be demoralizing, it can be frustrating and can truly test your will power to keep going.
It is at that point when you have to keep your heart in the fight, make sure your nerve can sustain the turmoil and muster your sinew not to leave you that you truly need an inspirational thought. For me the inspirational image I will use is that of a picture of 52nd & Locust in West Philadelphia.
My grandfather opened a barbershop on this street in 1952, that is still open today. At this same interaction, in 2007, a presidential candidate visited the community and inspired a neighbored by re-emphasizing the word ‘HOPE’.
The empowerment he left the crowd with is my inspiration, what is yours?
