Inspiration is the act or power of exercising an elevating or stimulating influence upon emotions. Inspiration is that feeling which makes you chase your dreams. It is being in a state of mind where every thing is possible, everything is cleared. Example- Newton sits under the apple tree. An apple falls and hits him on the head. He suddenly becomes excited an full of energy as an idea for the theory of gravity comes to him and he writes it down in his notebook. In this story, the apple can be called an inspiration as it caused the enthusiasm. When we think about inspiration, what inspires us most are ordinary people who have done extra ordinary things. We appreciate when someone has the ability and willingness to be selfless, creative, innovative, or just dares to be different. Mother Teresa, Gandhi, King Martin Luther,etc. all of them were ordinary people to decided that the world needed their help. Also,there are many such stories of mine which inspired me a lot in my life and here is one of them.

Actually I am a person who gets tensed very quickly due to tension because of choosing career due to changing of decisions, tension of result and so on. One day I got irritated because of this stuffs and misbehaved with everybody. Watching all this my father came near me and took me to the kitchen. He poured a glass of water and held that in his hand, he asked me "how much do you think this glass weighs?".

''50 gms!''...''100 gms!''...or may be ''125 gms!'', I answered . My father then told, "I really don't know unless I weigh it, but what would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?"

"Nothing," I answered. Then my father again ask me "What would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?"

I answered "your arm would began to ache". He told, "You are right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?". "Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle pain," I ventured.

"Very good.But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?" ''No'' was the answer. "Then what caused the arm ache?" I was puzzled. "What should I do now to come out of pain?" asked my father. "Put the glass down" I said . "Exactly", he said. "Life's problem are something like this. Hold it for a few minutes in your head and they seem okay. Think of them for a long time and they began to ache."

Hold it even longer and they began to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything. It's important to think of challenges or problems in your life. But even more important is to put them down at the end of every day before you go to sleep every day. That way you are not stressed, you wake up everyday fresh and strong and can handle any issue that cones your way.
