Inspirational Story about Determination

Another inspirational story shared by Inspirational Travel to remind us to keep doing our best amidst dryness and struggles in life. This story is quoted from the book God's Little Devotional Book II (God's Little Devotional Books):

Long ago, a band of minstrels traveled from town to town performing music to make a living. They were not financially successful. Times were hard and there was little money left for common folk to spend on entertainment. So attendance was sparse. One night, the troupe met to discuss their plight - One said, "I see no reason for singing tonight. Its starting to snow. Who will venture out on a night like this?"
Another said, "I agree. Last night, we performed for only a handful. Fewer will come tonight. Why not give back the price of their tickets and cancel?"
A third added, "It's hard to do one's best for so few."
Then an older man arose and looked straight at the group as a whole and said - "I know you a…

We hope this story will give you another inspiration or enlightenment as we recognize other people’s value in us, in our family, workplace, or community.
On a breezy March day, the town mayor happened to stroll through the park where a small boy was flying the largest, most beautiful kite he had ever seen. It soared so high and floated so gently, the mayor was sure it must be visible from the next town. Since his little town did not have very many things of note to its credit, the mayor decided to award a "key to the city" to the one responsible for setting this spectacle aloft.
"Who is responsible for flying this kite?" the mayor inquired.
"I am," said the boy. "I made the kite with my own hands. I painted all the…

Don’t Quit

This is an all time favorite poem by Inspirational Travel that we hope will contribute inspiration in our journey through life. You might have read this already somewhere, hence, I hope reading this again will rekindle that spirit in you to keep moving on no matter how hard life may seem at times. As the saying goes --- Travel light! Stay Inspired!

DON’T QUIT When things go wrong, as they sometimes will; When the road you are trudging seems all uphill; When the funds are low and the debts are high; And you want to smile, but you have to sigh; When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don’t you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns, As everyone of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about, When he might have won had he stuck it out; Don’t give up thought the pace seems slow --- You may succeed with another blow. Often the goal is nearer than, It seems to a faint and a faltering man. Often the struggler has given up, When he might have captured the victor’s cup, And he…

Inspiration from an Oyster's Story

This powerful poem from the story of oysters is quoted by Inspirational Travel with the aim of sharing an inspiration on how to stay positive despite difficult moments. Hoping to turn pain into gain and obstacles to miracles.
The Oyster Story 
There once was an oyster whose story I tell, Who found that sand had got under his shell; Just one little grain, but it gave him much pain, For oysters have feelings although they’re so plain. Now, did he berate the working of Fate, which had led him to such a deplorable state? Did he curse out the government, or blame people for mistake? No; as he lay on the shelf, he said to himself: “If I cannot remove it, I will try to improve it.” So the years rolled by as the years always do, And he came to his ultimate destiny – stew. Now, the small grain of sand which had bothered him so, Became a beautiful pearl, all richly aglow. Now this tale has a moral --- for isn’t it grand What an oyster can do with a morsel of sand? What couldn’t we do if we’d o…
