When thinking of this week’s title 🤔, I was reminded of a mantra from my journal in June. “Desire to Inspire” has a great bell ring (ding, ding, ding…) doesn’t it? You have to believe it though… Warrior said over and over again how he truly wanted to inspire, motivate, and educate others. He continued searching for ways to make a positive difference in people’s lives. Isn’t that what we all should do too?
Whether one liked or disliked the Ultimate Warrior character, he did become quite the inspiration for so many with his confidence, discipline, and beliefs. We need to look at the WHY of inspiration. Like I’ve said before, you look for inspiration but be that for others as well. Most won’t flock to T.V. as a way for inspiration but we can notice those little things everyday.
Three people have stood out for me personally as being inspirational lately. It’s not always our words but also actions and a desire for the good. Earlier this year, two inspiring souls reached out to me through my website and email. I will keep their names private but they contacted me personally as we shared common interests.
I had a phone conversation with this woman about celebrities or famous people in spirit. We bonded over our experiences while offering advice. She also read my book Spirit and Belief and loved the stories! We both especially referenced The Mysterious Batteries. 😉 She truly was an inspiration having enough guts reaching out to a stranger. We had many similarities yet differences which connected our beliefs and abilities.
The second connection was from someone who is a bodybuilder and found a few of Warrior’s YouTube videos. He had no idea that man was the same person he idolized as a child back in the WWF days. He shared details while complementing Warrior on being HIS inspiration. Both people thanked me for being the voice they are intimidated to be on their own. We all have that desire to inspire and it’s a wonderful gift expressing however it suits you.
There are so many ways to look at inspiration. It’s all communication in any form. The Ultimate Warrior had his loud, intense way but perhaps that approach isn’t quite you. Writing works for me but again, your choice.
Face to face discussions are the best of course but that might be difficult for some. Do you work best with phone calls, email, text, or other social media outlets? I love making YouTube videos but that can be a challenge at times. The desire needs to be there. We also need to practice listening with inspiration as that is a two-way street. Even though both of those individuals I had not met, I listened and then responded humbly. They both contacted me so the desire became about respect along with that inspiration.
The third person was a totally different experience. My husband was in the process of selling his mother’s home near her passing and took this big task on. After a time of some interest, he was contacted by a mutual friend thru Facebook. His brothers and he were struggling and I just sent out an S.O.S. to the Universe for patience and guidance. Lo and behold, it delivered.
This man we found out later is indeed a Joe of all trades. His name is Joe and besides being a realtor, had done many other jobs. When carpet got wet, he replaced it for a smaller fee than a company and even went above and beyond to help these boys out. His own brothers knew my husband in high school so there was a connection…
Here’s the part some of you will love. He used to be a pro-wrestler!!! I did get to meet him as those goose bumps filled my arms and legs. Hello Warrior. 💙 Joe was in the NWA and wrestled under the name Vladimir Markov. Yep, they made him Russian! Look him up for more info… Pretty cool, huh? He knew of the Ultimate Warrior and many other names I mentioned. My husband told him how I talked with Dana Warrior on her podcast! It was so thrilling(: Later on, my husband said how Joe was a Godsend as I KNOW someone up there likes us and sent help. 🙏🏻 Joe was such an inspiration helping out without huge demands and being so understanding with our needs.
My three count again even without Warrior on this list. Desire to Inspire and look to the real reasons of intent.
Be a voice but encourage another to use theirs.
Get noticed but notice others as well.
Maybe you yell, email, or sell houses but whatever your task, just have true desire. The inspiration will come. Find your WHY always…
P.S. A few of Warrior’s YouTube videos are called: “Injections of Inspiration.” How about that?
