Our Moral Compass Podcast (Episode 353): Love and Inspiration

Welcome to the Our Moral Compass Podcast. Each daily reading focuses on a different quote on how we can best apply it to our own moral compass and one of the five areas in Social Emotional Learning: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills and Responsible Decision Making. Thank you for listening and we hope you consider subscribing to the podcast for future episodes.

Love and Inspiration

“Just don’t give up on trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.”

-Ella Fitzgerald

Too legit to quit. That is what the music artist Hammer rapped about in the 1990’s. It even became a catch phrase with people across the nation with it’s obvious message of never giving up. But even before Hammer, American jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald believed that we should never give up on trying what we really want to do in life. As long as there is love and inspiration we can’t go wrong. I wholeheartedly agree with what she says but believe it all comes down to us making the conscious decision to keep persevering and not giving up even when life gets hard. That is what is key.

Love and inspiration is found not only in ourselves but in those who support us and want nothing but the best. It is always there. Just knowing and remembering this will allow our internal flame to continue to burn bright. We have the tools and skillsets to overcome any obstacle we face as long as we don’t quit. For when we do quit, then that decision is in fact the wrong one and extinguishes that love and inspiration we worked so hard to create. Whatever you do, don’t let this happen. Bear down and make the decision to rise above.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards developing your responsible decision making skills?
