Inspiration — it can come from many sources, even fictional ones

A friend about to enter college is a fan of the TV show Bones. She recently decided to major in criminology and criminal justice, with a minor in forensics. ("Now that sounds very Temperance Brennan," she says.)

And there is nothing wrong with that. If your goal is a good one, then it doesn't matter from where that motivation comes. (As long as you know what you are getting into, of course.)

And speaking of Bones, many people became real-life doctors after being inspired by Dr. "Bones" McCoy on Star Trek.

Fictional characters who inspire people to make real-life achievements suddenly seem a lot less fictional. Such is the power of inspiration.

She, too, is powerfully inspirational.
