Guide to Inspiration – Simple Tips to Get Inspired

InspirationThere are days when we feel inspired, with plenty of ideas of what to do, how to improve our life, our business or our relationships. At these times we also feel full with the energy and desire to make things happen. At other times we lack inspiration and feel empty, with no ideas, no creativity, and no zest.

What do you do when you don’t feel the pulse of inspiration throbbing within you?

What does a writer do, when he or she are not inspired?

What do you if you are a schoolboy, a student, a worker, or a manger of your company, when everything seems boring and heavy?

We all have days when need some inspiration, when we need passion and creativity.

Here is a short guide for inspiration for anyone who experiences lack of inspiration and creativity. The inspiration tips in this short guide might not work the same way for everyone, but you can try them. What works for one does not necessarily work for another; you will never know that for sure until you try.

Before I give you these inspiration tips, let’s talk a little about inspiration.

What Is Inspiration?

  • It is state when your consciousness and awareness open up to higher vibrations.
  • It is when your mind is open to receive new ideas.
  • It is creativity expressing itself through your mind and your soul.
  • Being inspired means to be positive.
  • It is a beautiful feeling of happiness and contentment.
  • It is a time when you see the solutions to your problems.
  • Inspiration is sort of energy that makes your mind, soul and body more alive.
  • It is like being plugged to a positive, uplifting and motivating current of energy.

Inspiration can’t be forced, and sometimes it comes when it is least expected. It is as if some kind of energy or power is breathed into you.

Positive Thinking in Difficult Times

Positive ThinkingIt is rather easier to feel positive when everything goes well, but real positive thinking is revealed when you can maintain it difficult times. It is then that you need it most.

In difficult times, when there are problems and the economic condition is tough, it is so easy to get into negative thinking and self-pity, and be sucked into a vicious circle of worries, fears and the expectation of more problems, lack of money or poverty.

You may read books and articles on positive thinking, and believe that you are positive, but when difficulties and rough times appear, you just forget everything and focus on the problems and difficulties, instead of believing in yourself, looking for solutions and seeking and seizing opportunities.

If you have no job, no money and the future looks bleak you might:

  • Indulge in self-pity and feel bad and helpless.
  • Indulge in worries and fears and expect more problems.
  • Become resentful and angry at the world and at successful people.
  • Be sad and focus on your problems.

How to Strengthen Your Motivation

Being motivated is important for anything you do, whether it is studying or making friends, learning a foreign language or bodybuilding, starting a new career or improving your financial condition. It is also important for success with self improvement and success in meditation. It is a driving force that is required for anything you do, small or big.

Motivation is the driving force that keeps you energized and focused on your goal. It gives you the inner strength to go on and do whatever is required to achieve goals.

From what I see and hear from people, many lack motivation, and this leads to laziness, lack of ambition and to dissatisfaction. In order to achieve anything, one has to strengthen the motivation.

How can you strengthen your motivation?

Imagination and thoughts are strong factors in this respect. Visualizing what you would like to do or achieve, or repeating affirmations increase motivation, but you have to be careful not to think contradictory thoughts. It is no use visualizing or affirming for a few minutes, and then thinking negatively the rest of the day.

Here are a few suggestions for strengthening your motivation:

Motivation and Ambition

Motivation is an important ingredient for success. It is the power that kindles the fire to do things and to act, and has much to do with ambition and desire. In fact, without ambition and desire there is no motivation. When motivation is strong, there is ambition, and when there is strong ambition there is motivation.

Often, people get motivated to do something, learn something, accomplish something, but this motivation is too often short lived and evaporates after a little while. How do you feel after reading something that inspires you, or after watching a movie that awakens your ambition to succeed? You feel the desire to experiment or accomplish what you have read or seen. You feel a sense of euphoria and happiness, but too often, these feelings go away on the same day or the next one.

Why does this happen?
Because you don’t really want to achieve what you have read or seen.
You are too busy and forget about it.
It requires too much effort.
It requires that you make certain changes in your life.
It takes time to accomplish goals.
