Does your life lack inspiration?

closer look-thumbDo you lack inspiration? If you do, you’re not alone.

I recently attended a talk and as an ice breaker we were asked to speak to someone else in the room and ask what they were most recently inspired by. For many people the exercise was surprisingly difficult. They couldn’t remember the last time they had considered what inspires them.

During the talk, which was on discovering the work you were born to do, the speaker commented that it was not surprising that so many of people found it a challenge because it is not a question we are regularly asked.

So many people feel fed up and unfulfilled, not only because they feel like something is missing in their life, but because they are at a loss as to how to even begin finding exactly what could fill that void.

Inspiration is one the most important catalysts for discovering what fulfils you. When you are inspired by something, you are moved to take action and to share your experience. You are motivated to do or see more of whatever it is that has inspired you. You start to see things differently and consider new ways of being and doing.

When you feel inspired, something inside you wakes up and comes alive. If you have been feeling particularly demotivated, inspiration gives you a glimpse that things could actually be different. Inspiration reminds you that you didn’t always feel this way about your job, career and life and that you had interests and hobbies that made you feel happy, motivated and fulfilled.

So where do you find inspiration and how do you get inspired?

We are surrounded by inspiration and different people are inspired by different things, people and places. You may already know what inspires you, if so fantastic; start to immerse yourself in it. If it’s been so long since you last felt inspired, think back to when you were young, what could you easily spend hours doing? Start there.

Whether or not you know what inspires you, the best way to get inspired is to try new things, visit new places and speak to new people. You’ll be amazed at what starts to happen…
