Inspiration is powerful and important aspect of life. Inspiration awakens us to new possibilities by allowing us to excel our normal experiences and limitations. Inspiration drives a person from apathy to possibility, and transforms the way we perceive our own worth and capabilities. Inspiration may sometimes be overlooked because of its elusive nature. Its history of being treated as supernatural or divine hasn’t helped the situation. But as recent research shows, inspiration can be activated, captured, and manipulated, and it has a major effect on important life outcomes.

 Tips for Finding Your Inspiration

 Switch On your learning mode

 Always keep your learning mode Switched On. Just because you achieve expertise in a particular area doesn’t mean you’ve learned all you can learn. In fact, this mindset can lead to a close-minded outlook. Instead, commit to ongoing learning by developing an “inspiration routine.” Read Inspirational Quotes and Motivational Stories daily and kick start your day with full of positivity. Quotes have the power and ability to change your thought process. An inspirational quote in the morning can charge you with positivity, cheerfulness and motivation for the rest of the day. 

 Be more social

 Spending time with the same people every day may be comfortable, but it can also lead to stagnation. In spending time with new people — particularly those who are involved in different activities than you are — you grow closer to new ideas and insights.

Surround yourself with positive people. It’s a saying you are a mirror of the people around you. When you spend time with positive people you are bound to be inspired with them.

 Make a move

Move on in life. Take first step and start from right now. Well, I feel you have already taken that first step, that’s why you are here and reading this article on the importance of inspiration and motivation in life. Inspiration facilitates progress toward goals. Waiting for inspiration to strike may lead to a life of waiting. You do not need to wait….

Inaction is your enemy in this effort. Inspiration doesn’t just happen while we’re at our desks returning emails. Don’t wait for a flash of insight to strike before making any changes. The field of cognitive behavioral therapy shows that our behavior affects how we think and feel. When we do different things, we feel different feelings 

Limit your choices

While open-mindedness is a necessary attribute of aspiration, too many choices can be immobilizing. Suggests Hedges, “We can boost our motivation by narrowing down our options, making it easier to act on them. We like to know we have a plan and are working toward it. If you feel stuck, try writing down all of your options and selecting the three you’re most excited about in order. Then allocate time to work toward your top choices.”
