What inspires you? Pain can be good because it forces some people to make a change. Bad grades can make us realize that we need to study. Debts may lead someone into stepping outside the box and starting their own business. A painful childhood may cause the individual to aspire to be better so as not to be like the horrible parent. We are all moved by something, whether good or bad, what we hear, or see from those around us.
