Motivation and Inspiration Day
You’re now on January 2, the start of a new year. There are 365 days left, so now is the right time to make them count.
Although January 2nd may seem like a day to get over the New Year’s Party hangover for many, the history behind Motivation and Inspiration Day is far more serious. After the terrible events of September 11, 2001, The United States Congress passed National Motivation & Inspiration Day.
This was the moment Kevin L. McCrudden became a motivational and leadership speaker. It was also the first day Congress passed such a day, acknowledging the importance “motivation” as well as “inspiration” within our daily lives.
McCrudden felt Americans needed to be reminded that they had many things to look forward to after the September 11th 2001 tragedy. Many people felt lost, sad or scared at the time. This was especially true for those who had just lost loved ones or friends in the World Trade Center attack of September 11, 2001. McCrudden intended that this day would be dedicated to helping people achieve their full potential and become better by setting annual goals.
It was a popular idea that quickly became a reality. Motivation and Inspiration Day is celebrated worldwide, as well as in the United States. This day encourages people to make positive changes in their lives.
You can celebrate this day in a few ways. First, take into account the events that lead to Motivation and Inspiration Day. It would be a good idea to spend a few minutes in silence to show respect for those who were killed by terrorism that day. Then, honor their memory by making your life better and appreciating it!
This can be done in many ways. You can think of someone who inspires and shows appreciation for who they are. It doesn’t need to be extravagant. Take your friend, father, or mother out for lunch to talk about their lives and how they have helped you to overcome the challenges of life. Spend the evening with your spouse, buying a bottle of wine. People often take their closest ones for granted. However, it is important to not miss the chance to show those who are special or inspirational how much you appreciate them.
You can also take up something you have wanted to do for years but have been putting off. You can sign up for a martial art class, learn a new language, create a book list, or purchase a cookbook with healthy recipes that you can make for your family, instead of ordering takeout every night.
No matter how you celebrate Motivation Day and Inspiration Day, it will change your life and help you appreciate and live better.
