Inspiration vs. Coercion

What a difficult lesson to learn.  After all, with a little muscle and ingenuity coercion can seem pretty effective.  The problem is that no matter how much we pry on people, the end result will rarely be more than tolerable.  I include myself in that equation.  Whenever I feel like someone is trying to manipulate me, my immediate response is to dig in my heals.

Inspiration, however, is a different story.  Our greatest moments are birthed from the flame of inspiration.  It’s the fuel of the masterpiece.  If we learn to harness it’s profound power, our ability to influence the world around us increases exponentially.

Where can you exercise the power of influence?

Where do you need to exchange coercion for inspiration?
