Encouragement for Inspiration:
Are You Still Waiting For Inspiration?
By Marie Roker
Inspiration usually comes during work, rather than
- Madeleine L'Engle
Would you like to know the secret to inspiration? Well, the secret
is: The only way to get inspired is to go ahead and do what you
need to do.
Inspiration is what comes out of you, not what
comes to you.
It comes from your experiences and what you have
observed and learned in your life.
If you're like most people, you're waiting for inspiration to come
to you, so that you can make a difference in your life or an
impact on the lives of others. You wait for that sign or feeling
that should motivate you to take action. You look around you for
words, books or poems that will encourage you to live your dreams.
Stop waiting for someone or something to inspire you. You can not
achieve anything in life without first, expecting it and then
doing it. You need to take the first step.
Have you ever dreamt about what you wanted to do with your life?
What became of that dream? You can not sit on your dreams and
goals and wait for guidance. The fact is that this motivation has
to come for within. You have to get your ideas out of a dormant
state and take the necessary steps to make them happen.
Don't worry about what others think of your plans or goals. All
you need is a vision and a mission. Your greatest achievements in
this world will be the result of how quick you are to act upon
your intentions. A strong will and a persistent attitude will help
you make or find a way to get things done.
