Inspiration is a powerful word for something that moves you to action. Perhaps it is a quote, perhaps another person that catches your attention and demands; but whatever the source of your inspiration, do not waste the moment or toss it aside.
“Here are some favourite quotes that have moved me to action over the past,” says Roy Murad, Entrepreneur & Business Consultant. “While these may not have the same power for you, they talk to the core values that I hold dear in my personal and business life – family, perseverance, action and knowledge.“
