Have you ever sat down and documented exactly what inspires you?
Many years ago I began documenting what it is that makes me feel inspired (I define it as being “in spirit” – that joyful inner feeling that we all get…some people call it “being in my element” or “being in the flow”). Many activities that bring on this amazing feeling are the same for all of us (such as being in love or being grateful) and there are many activities and thought processes of course that are unique to each one of us.
Activities that inspire me include the fact that I absolutely love the beach and hearing the crashing waves, driving through the hills in my sports car, reading a good biography, listening to certain musicians, listening and meditating on a particular pastor’s sermon, and spending time with particular people who I seem to resonate with.
It is important to know the many things that inspire you. For once you know them, you can then make the time to bring them into your life purposefully. The ultimate goal of course is to aim to be 80% of the time (or more of course) inspired! Too many of us get caught up working for a living instead of ‘designing a life’. The ‘life of design’ should include as many inspirational activities as is possible to bring into your day.
When you are inspired you will:
- Handle issues (challenges) more effectively
- Be happier (others will notice the glow coming out of your eyes)
- Create greater opportunities in your business/career, life and in the lives of others
We all set so many goals each year – to make more money, to advance our career, to lose weight, to improve our relationship, to holiday….However, did you know that the one key goal to achieve a high level of inspiration will itself help you bring into fruition every one of your goals and dreams?
Many people comment that they have attended the Breakfast at the Next Level because it re-ignites their inspiration and that is true for that is one of the breakfast event’s purposes. So what are you doing today to get yourself inspired and fired up to really enjoy the gift of life that you have been given? Perhaps begin today and notice every time you feel an amazing sense of joy inside – document it and before long you will know 10+ activities that inspire you. Then begin bringing as many of these activities as you can into your life daily. You will notice a new level of youthfulness and energy will come over you. You will have less issues. You will attract greater opportunities in every area of your life.
Let me know at the next breakfast event on the 6th of April 2016 how you are going as I’d be only too happy to provide you with any advice into how to take your inspiration strategy to another level.
