Motivation And Inspiration Day: How To Set Goals And Make Your Year A Successful One [Videos, Photos]

Charisse Van Horn

It's Motivation and Inspiration Day, and while many will take this time to reflect upon the things they want to achieve in the upcoming year, there is a sad story as to how this day came to be. Motivation and Inspiration Day is the brainchild of motivational speaker Kevin McCrudden who thought of the holiday in response to the overwhelming sadness and despair that occurred throughout the nation after the Sept. 11 terror attacks. Congress passed Motivation and Inspiration Day on Dec. 18, 2001. Kevin McCrudden has a YouTube channel where he has numerous teachings on motivation and inspiration. Motivation and Inspiration Day is a great time to set goals and make plans to achieve a fruitful and successful new year.
