07 Dec Finding Inspiration
Creative people aren’t the only ones who need inspiration. In business, you may know inspiration by it’s catch phrase, “the a-ha moment.” It’s that moment when everything comes together, gels so to speak. It’s that spark that makes things come alive, helps them make sense and drives you to action. You can get that inspiration from people, places, songs… any number of things. But here’s the question of the day, do you wait for inspiration to come or do you go out and FIND IT?
As a writer, I am specifically tuned in to when someone tells me, “I’m just not that inspired.” Loral would call that lack of motivation and absence of Yes! Energy. Ultimately, you are handing your forward progress over to this unseen character that must present itself to you in order for you to be productive. Waiting for inspiration, instead of going out and finding it, is about as unproductive as it gets.
Imagine if you just sat there, day in and day out, waiting for your “a-ha moment” to take your business to the next level, to launch that new product or to convince yourself to move forward and progress as a person. If you are waiting for something to inspire you, that’s exactly what you are doing.
Today I, and my Live Out Loud colleagues, challenge you: Go out and find your source of inspiration.
Actively seek it.
Take a walk. Listen to good music. Read the sample chapter of Yes! Energy: The Equation to Do Less, Make More. Create opportunities to be inspired!
I promise you. That computer monitor isn’t going to shout the answer to you by itself.
