Motivation is at the root of true happiness no matter how you define your own, unique ‘happy’. However, your motivation has to be much more specific than simply wanting to be happy. The word motivation itself implies there is action in there someplace. You are motivated to take action to reach some goal which will ultimately lead you to greater happiness.
Find challenges that inspire you – motivation asks you to take up inspiring challenges. They let you believe in yourself. Once the belief rises, a man becomes an unstoppable idea. This is the leitmotif of sales motivation.
Sitting around and waiting for inspiration to hit is a no win situation. The crazy thing about inspiration is that it takes it’s own sweet time to appear, and by waiting, it often takes longer than you’d like. Sort of the old “a watched pot never boils”. By waiting for inspiration, you often halt the process. It’s best to find a new creative project because that new project could easily provide the inspiration you’re waiting for.
What I really love about solitude is, it lets you notice some of the things that you would have missed if stuck in a busy, noisy environment. Solitude is also a place where we can find time for reflection and deep thinking so finding get inspired may just come when you’re relaxing your mind and sharpening your senses.
One way to maintain inspiration is through the use of affirmations. Another way is by keeping pictures of what you want constantly before your eyes. And yet another is through the use of goal cards.
The more compelling the reason, the more it aligns with what is important to you, the more you will be ‘pulled’ towards it. You need to imagine and have a vivid picture in your mind (as well of external representations such as a vision board) of what this destination looks like. If you have no idea what your goal or your destination looks like and how you will feel when you get there, then why would you want to go there in the first place? You generally can’t be motivated for motivation sake. You need a compelling reason and a clear purpose; somewhere to direct your attention and focus your energy.
Our world would be completely different if we were not inspired. I am fairly sure that we would still be sitting around in caves, trying to come up with an idea on how to stay warm in the winter.
