Can we become motivated to pursue our life’s dreams without inspiration? How can we pursue our endeavours if we’re not inspired by someone or something? Inspiration is important; it is an influence, a driving force that motivates us to do something. For instance, my life story has inspired me to create this blogging website to share my journey as a Christian living with a mental health disorder.
Without my unique life experiences, I would not even be motivated to create a blogging website to explore my passion for writing and storytelling. However, shortly after the creation of this website, I realized that it is God who has given me the inspiration to create this website and is directing me to share His Word. Therefore, I believe that inspiration is important.
How to Realize Inspirations in Your Life
Inspiration can come in many forms. For instance, is there someone in your life who you feel inspires you? Then use them as your inspiration to motivate you to pursue something positive in your life. Maybe as an example of what you aspire to become? Inspiration also comes from within – yes you can inspire yourself.
Do you like to travel? When we go out to unfamiliar places we learn so many new things which we didn’t even know existed before. We can find lots of inspiration through travel. How about nature? Do you like to be in nature? There’s something about being in a quiet, tranquil place to help you think. When we’re outside in nature we get the ability to think clearly and put things into perspective. You can find inspiration in nature.
A very simplistic example I remember. When I was in grade 5, two of the brightest kids in the class were competing against each other for higher marks. They were just kids, they only saw it as competition, wanting to get higher marks. But, what they didn’t realize is that they inspired each other to become motivated to work harder to achieve the best results – it worked! Their grades were always on par with each other. Neither of them was better than the other.
Another way to realize inspiration in your life is to consider your passions, and your past accomplishments. Can they inspire you to build on something new to improve your life, or enable you to pursue something different altogether? If so, go ahead and pursue them and see where it leads you. No matter how simple an idea seems, you never know if it could turn into something big in the future. Big things are borne out of the simplest ideas.
What to do When You Feel Inspired
Inspiration gives us the passion to pursue something new. When you feel inspired, you should move to act on it quickly. Otherwise, you might never do it, and you don’t want to lose the idea and the motivation. I feel like inspiration only comes around once, just like opportunities. Don’t lose out! And if you don’t pursue it, you may never know what could have been.
When you are unsure of what approach to take, talk to someone you trust who will encourage you. Brainstorm ideas with them and decide how to get started. And stay AWAY from negative people; DO NOT share your ideas with them.
Finally, inspiration is important; it is the primary motivator to encourage you to pursue your dreams. Inspiration comes in many different forms, could be from someone in your life, your environment, or even yourself. When you feel inspired, you should act on it quickly, it could be the next big thing in your life. Embrace the process and the small steps that will take you to bigger heights.
