What get’s your blood pumping? Fires you up? Inspires you?
Being inspired is often the fuel that leads some people and players to achieve greater things than they could’ve imagined. As it relates to your goals or your resolutions, inspiration is critical to keeping you on track when you hit some bumps along the road.
When your goals might be derailed inspiration gets you back moving forward again. You dig deep and find a reason to keep working. That’s one reason why it’s so important to write out your answers to step 2 “Know Why You Want It.” Having your reason for working hard for your goals, is a quick reminder what you’re working for at a time when it’s easy to question whether it’s worth it.
Once you’ve reminded yourself why. You’re ready for a boost of energy to push hard against the momentum of derailment.
Inspiration is that energy boost and finding the things that inspire you are key to tapping into that hidden fuel. It could be a movie, a song, a quote, a speech, a letter, a painting from your kid – anything really. Inspiration comes from many places, some too random to predict.
