I gave a TRINSPIRATION™ themed speech at a recent Toastmasters Club meeting entitled “Know the Rules.” In that speech, I told the audience what the rules are for a 3-word phrase to qualify to be a TRINSPIRATION™.
Rule #1: First and foremost, it is a complete sentence in which the subject “You” is understood. Mrs. Lucia Orr, my 6th grade English teacher, taught me this is an “imperative” sentence, when the subject of the sentence is implied to be “You” even though it is not written out. And an imperative sentence is also a command. That’s what a TRINSPIRATION™ is—a mini-command or exhortation to get us to take some positive step on a daily basis.
