Be Inspired

What INSPIRES you? What REALLY inspires you?   New Focus Daily (NFD) has always sought to inspire.   Whether it’s August or any of the other 11 months of the year, we seek to inspire. Because our medium is writing, our WORDS have the potential to inspire.   Have you have ever thought about the power of WORDS? They are super-powerful.   Words can build one up or tear one down.  Words can invoke tears of joy or tears of sadness.  Words can heal or hurt.   Writer, poet, and novelist Rudyard Kipling says, “Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.”  Choose your words wisely!

For this month, we have a lot of inspiration for you as well as education. We are making our words count this beautiful summer month of August!   Look for stories of celebration and survivorship which seek to inspire, but also articles that educate and enlighten on a variety of topics.  You CAN be educated and inspired at the same time – learning something new can be fun and inspire you to make changes in your life or to share with others.   You’ll see some of our NFD “favorites” this month including Jean Criss, Linda Ragsdale, Jessica Meyer, and Rhonda Hicks are part of the August line-up along with some new surprises.   “Survivor Designer” Laura Mac is back as well as Chef Mary Stodola. Wow! That’s a lot of WORDS packed into the August NFD and we are super-excited to bring it all to our readers.

And speaking of words – how about practicing the “three A’s”? Whether it’s in our personal lives, in business, or really in any situation, our words really do make a difference.    To inspire others, “Appreciate,” “Acknowledge,” and “Ask.”  See what happens.   Letting people know you appreciate them, acknowledging them as a unique and special individual, and asking what you can do for them or even just how they are – is powerful.    It doesn’t take long and can be just a short exchange of words, but enough to make someone’s day. Why don’t you try it?

 

Be educated, empowered, INSPIRED, and stay SURVIVOR strong!
