    Smile three inspiring/encouraging/inspirational stories

    By giving up things you hold dear--time, money and personal success--you can make the world a better place. Here are three inspiring/encouraging/inspirational stories!



    Do all of the three words between slashes work with the above wording? If yes, what are the subtle differences semantically? Thanks.

    Yes.

    The difference is that "inspiring" and "inspirational" stories will make people feel they want to do something, and "encouraging" will make them feel they may be able to do something.

    Thanks, Anglika.
    Just to make sure, is there any difference between inspiring and inspirationa?

    I don't feel there is any substantial difference between them.

    Thanks, Anglika.
    By the way, when I read of "any substantial difference" in your post, I wonder whether it indicates "any perceptible, large, or physical difference."
