You might think it an impossible task to find inspiration in these troubled times. But according to Jen Grace Baron, co-founder and Chief Inspiration Officer at InspireCorps, an inspiration strategy firm that partners with organisations to drive business growth and also innovation, it’s precisely during times like these when we are most likely to find inspiration.
“Some of what people find most inspiring in their whole lives, are some of the hardest times that they had been through or had survived.”
Inspiration is a complex entity, something that is hard to define in itself without using the word ‘inspiration’. It’s not a smiley thing that works just in the good times, it’s not something that we do only when it’s convenient, inspiration is a critical foundation for healthy humans.
Inspiration is especially critical during times of crisis, such as the one we are enduring right now.
“We found that during times of crisis, the ways that we act in the world change, right, all of how we're thinking and seeing the world changes. And in that unfreezing, there is an opportunity to shape new mindsets, to create new, powerful connections, to reinvent how we do business.”
So if you’re struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel, don’t despair, let this inspirational woman inspire you to bring about new change.
