Turn to our online organization for inspirational stories that will help you become a better person. Up & Out Inspired Word in Chicago, Illinois, was conceived out of a desire to reach people and share the difference between inspiration and motivation. When it comes to inspiration, it inflames, whereas motivation provides direction to those who are in the process of obtaining goals.
Additionally, our organization was also founded because our founder saw the hurt and pain that many people were going through. She felt that these human conditions could be eased through meditation and inspirational stories.
