Motivation VS Inspiration
I often hear people saying that they lack motivation in their lives. That “If only I could feel motivated, I would…” Motivation is usually a case of “Do this or else,” which is fine if it works, but it is not often accompanied with positive feelings (except when it is), but rather feelings of desperation like when you are motivated to work because bills need to be paid). It’s far better to look for inspiration, as inspiration is something that breathes life into you, it’s a wonderful outcome that compels you. Inspiration is usually accompanied with hopeful and exciting feelings. So how do you find inspiration? It’s actually easier than you think. Motivation has to do with immediate consequence, the job has to get done. Inspiration is tied into your values, your goals, your dreams, your bliss. If you spend time reconnecting with who you are, the real you, then inspiration will come easily. You will find yourself compelled to move forward as you reach for what you truly value, and pursue your dreams.
