What inspires you?
Inspiration and motivation can come from several places or people. What I have found with my clients is depending on what is happening in their lives at the time will determine what inspires them.
I recently participated in a workshop as an attendee instead of a presenter. I was hoping to be inspired and motivated but the first part was the same thing that I usually teach and therefore was watching the presentational techniques instead of listening to the content.
After lunch, we had an exercise where we had to split into teams and work out together a challenge to a conclusion. This is where I found my motivation and inspiration. On that day at that time that is what inspired me.
Where Do you look for inspiration?
If you write, or blog then you might look for inspiration on the internet, from real life experience or by reading. Everyone has several ways of finding inspiration and what works for one person may not work for another. Fear can get in the way of our motivation and inspiration.
Sometimes when we least expect it inspiration can come to us. Other times not letting go of limiting beliefs and seeing possibilities in the future can stop us from being inspired.
How long do inspiration and motivation last?
Sometimes inspiration can last only a few minutes, other times it can last hours or days and if you are really lucky it can last months.
What can help you get inspired or motivated?
- Meditate (guided if you are new to it)
- Read Motivational Quotes
- Listen to Motivational Music
- Dale Carnegie
- Anthony Robbins
- Wayne Dyer
- Louise Hay
- Napoleon Hill
- Jay Abraham
The list could go on, I make sure I read or listen to something motivating every day to keep me inspired.
It is so easy to become despondent, cynical and demotivated when there are so many negative influencers that surround us all the time.
What inspires and motivates you, please comment and help others be inspired.
