Top Tips For… Inspiration

1) Record Your Thoughts. 

Just like Jim Rohn, it’s a good idea to keep a notebook with you at all times to capture sudden inspirations and thoughts. See something you like? Hear someone moaning about something you think you can solve? Write it down! You can fill it with anything, drawings, photographs… anything that makes you feel motivated and inspired to improve yourself and your life right now, today.

2) Ask Yourself “Where Do I Feel Most Drawn?”

Has there ever been a place that you have always wanted to go, or have been too and never forgotten? When generating ideas imagine that place as vividly as you can. What does it look like? How do you feel when your there? Remember and escape to this place whenever you feel like your idea tap has run dry.

3) Address Situations With An Open Mind.

Considering all possibilities in any situation and stepping into other people’s shoes is a great way to become inspired. Inspiration can come from anywhere and anyone, but it won’t find you. You have to go out and look for it. You have to have the drive to want to be inspired too.

4) Make A List Of Your Role Models.

The people that inspire you are very important in any life. Consider how much you know about them and why they inspired you. I can guarantee that every time you learn something new about their lives or relate yourself to them it feels good doesn’t it?

A fuel for your motivation. What qualities did they need to get where they did? How were they S.P.I.R.I.T.E.D to get where they are today? Keep your list handy for times when you’re lacking inspiration.

5) Know When Your Feeling Un-Inspired.

If your unmotivated towards the task in hand or unexcited to face the day take yourself away from the situation. In short term this might mean something as simple as going out for a walk, reading or even just going to a nearby café. In the long term it could mean reconsidering your goals, your job and where you live, redirecting your life. Remember that for your life to change… so must you!

So go out and experience the world. Ensure that everything you see, you see as an opportunity for inspiration and let yourself be curious. Being inspired will always help you to get a unique frame of mind, and hopefully these top tips helped!
