You Can Find Inspiration Anywhere
What does inspiration mean to you? I believe inspiration is the one thing in life that never stops flowing in abundance. Inspiration just isn’t about creating lyrics for song or writing the story or even participating in some type of creative art.
Inspiration is what makes us move forward at a rapid pace in business decisions or offers a name out of the blue that can help us move to the next level of our activity. Inspiration is the spark that leads us to take action on something that would leave most people in fear.
Inspiration can be found anywhere and at any time and is not a stop/start process. Inspiration is like a spigot that you just can’t turn off. When you have it you usually have a lot of it but when you don’t have it seems like no matter what you do, that spigot is just never going to be turned on again.
Inspiration, in and of itself will never stop so have faith. It is up to you to step aside and keep from blocking it. So how do you ignite your awareness of inspiration? Take a look into the subjects and topics that you are passionate about or interest you. Start reading inspiring stories or research the people who inspire you.
You will probably find, as I have, that these people who inspire you often have struggled with turning on their own inspiration spigot. Even though it was turned off at that moment they always found a way through it.
THIS WEEK'S ACTION STEP
Here is this week’s personal exercise:
Start researching some of the people that have inspired you or that you have looked up to and admired throughout history. See if there’s something different between you and the people you admire. There usually is not a lot of difference between you and your heroes. That is usually why you’re attracted to the qualities they possess. Something about them resonates with something inside of you.
Find out what they have done to resonate with inspiration. Try acting as they have acted to turn that inspiration spigot on and before you know it, you’ll be back in the inspired mode yourself.
Stop thinking small and think big and expand on your ideas. You should keep expanding until your ideas as they have an irresistible life of their own.
Remember, Life isn't about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself. It is time to create the best life possible!
Until next week
