Why not?

You really can change the world if you care enough.

We've all been motivated one way or the other. At school, when you aced a test and found a new pair of Nikes waiting by your bed. At work, when you find an email in your inbox from your boss thanking you for a job well done and find that the email was CCed to your colleagues and members of top management… There's also the financial motivation we'd like to find on a piece of paper often referred to as 'paycheck'.

Do motivation and inspiration share the same meaning?

No… they unfortunately don't.

We can walk around for days, months, and decades waiting for something to inspire us, to make us change for the better and discover our truest self. This inspiration could come in several forms; a photograph, a hug, a speech told by a person who says it from the heart, a mere hug.

I demand my Martin Luther King. He wasn't a bullshitter. He actually believed in something. He just got up there and talked and fought for the rights of his people. He gave them hope, but didn't lie. Nasser was an idiot, a bullshitter, a fake. He was a good man and probably a good person, but zalamooh lamma 3amalo menno rayyes 3eleihom. Everyone loved him back then, but today, people argue his fakeness, that he made Egyptians believe that they were something that they're not, a higher race, an Egyptian Reich. We still think we're the center of the world. Allah yer7amo ba2a.

Is this world the world of "Show me the money and I'm yours"?

People went crazy when that Telecomm Italia Ghandi commercial was made by Spike Lee. The world needs to be inspired. I'm tired of demanding material. I need to follow something great.

I understand that this is the world of fast food, fast cash i.e. ATMs, a faster internet connection, a shorter film, a shorter novel; a world where people just… don't… have… time to spare, but I do need something more than just a commercial.

Some people see things as they are and say why. I dream things that never were and say why not? – George Bernard Shaw

Inspire me.

In an increasingly sterile and busy world it's nice that people take the time to share a part of themselves with the world. It may not be the complete picture but in fact even if I was to see a photo of you...would that really tell me much more about you than your writing does. Actually writing is more revealing .

Arima how sure are you that you're commenting on the right post :D

i was commenting on both actually- i kinda took them to be parts of the same thing. Maybe in that i was wrong?

Naah.. I was just checking cos I felt it had to do more with the other one.

FINE! If you need to be inspired then i guess i can try and inspire you..all you had to do was ask!

You are now...inspired.

shakket daboos;)

I believe! I believe!!
