SEVEN STEPS TO GET YOURSELF INSPIRED

Everyone wants to be inspired. Like a rubber band stretched, inspiration stretches you out of your comfort zones. Below are the ways through which you can get inspired and live a fulfilled life.

DISCOVERY
Learn to discover inspirations around you, be it a simple greeting or even a simple smile you get or be inspired by someone’s successful story or just a simple struggling story that comes out good. Inspiration is everywhere, find it.

FRIENDS AND FAMILY
If you can’t find that, just make your family, friends and those persons close to you your inspiration. You friends and family can be a great source of inspiration to you. Though you can't change your family but you can choose your friends who can give your life an uplift.

Have you ever thought of all the efforts they made just for you to have and live the life you have got? Have you ever thought of all the encouraging words they said and their willingness to support you no matter what happens? If you can combine all of that, you can be motivated. Yes, you can be motivated. You can do it, just do your best and have a strong belief in yourself.

ATTITUDE
Attitude is everything. Don't worry if others are putting you down, don't let it limit you, don't let it quench your zeal. You can turn those negative things into positive ones. You can use it as a great source of your motivation and as a challenge to prove them wrong. Why not learn from Maya Angelou words that never ceases to inspire me:

“You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise."

DREAMS
Your dream can be your source of inspiration. Do you have dreams? Nothing worth having exist outside the world of dreams. “What are you prepared to give for your dream? If it is not everything...stop pipe dreaming”—T.F. Hodge. What you're prepared to give your dream can an immense source of your inspiration. You have to learn to give your dream all it desires from you in order to partake of it's reality. Dream the dream, but much more act on the dream.


DETERMINATION
More importantly you have to have a great determination; so great that you always on the side of never giving up. Remember a strong determination can take you anywhere. You can't always rely on people to cheer you up and to be your inspiration, determination comes from one's self. Just like the saying goes, “You can find inspiration from others, but determination is solely your responsibility." Be determined in all you do because, that's an undiluted source of inspiration you can find nowhere.

LEARNING
Never stop learning
Never stop learning
Never stop learning.

Learning is a gradual process. The inspiration you need to excel in life, business, marriage and spiritually might be on the next page of that book you are reading or even that book you have bluntly refused to read. To keep growing, keep learning. Books are great source of inspiration gotten via knowledge. Studying about someone who has succeeded in your field of endeavor can be a source of your inspiration. Find that man and study him and how he did it diligently.

SELF BELIEF
You are the best inspiration your life needs. Your inspiration can come from the level of your self belief. Do you believe in yourself? Believing in yourself can drive you crazy to work and generate a great deal of passion you never imagined. If you can't find inspiration outside, hey- inspiration is within. Inspire yourself by believing so much in yourself. This can only be possible via what you got to offer (your worth). What can you do with what you have? If you can answer that, that can be the beginning of your inspiration.

I hope these inspires you to keep inspiring yourself. Don't forget, “Everything about you lies within you"
