Inspiration in life is important because it encourages us to pursue our dreams, to continue doing what is needed in attaining success or even to continue surviving everyday’s ordeal. The ups and downs in life that a person continuously experience can sometimes drain one’s reservoir of inspiration; thus, the question many of us ask is “Where do I find my inspiration in life?” Searching for inspiration, you do not necessarily need to climb the highest mountains or dive the deepest oceans. Inspiration can be sought for through simple means.
A wealth of inspiration can be found on a Special Olympics track field, particularly if you know and understand the life and trials of a runner who just won a gold medal. Perhaps you know of a teenager, who finally took control of her life, after years of abuse and addiction. You hear how successful her work in mentoring others with addictions has inspired her to give motivational speeches. In doing so, she inspired many to get help to quit addictive behaviors and to get their lives back on track. Inspiration may be found in your neighborhood, even on your block. Is it the child who receives another puppy, after her other dog died? Possibly, learn new things was finding the words to encourage and provide compassion to a married couple who were on the brink of separation.
There are many questions about personal motivation – or lack of it – as well as motivation in others. People often wonder why they themselves or someone else is not motivated.
Also, In most situations where you ‘break the ice’, you’d just fall into freezing cold water and may die… Bit of a weird way to open a conversation between strangers.
When people find motivation first, it is because they have found something they desperately want to work at every day. Their motivation grows and makes them successful at the job they are performing. They feel productive and thus, happiness follows.
So why do you want inspiration? You would be surprised that many writers do not actually know the answer to this question. Feeling inspired is a great, but without a goal in mind, that feeling can be wasted. What is your intention for inspiration? Do you want to start a novel? Are you trying to figure out how to end a poem? Do you need motivation to re-edit your manuscript? Seeking inspiration without an intention may be a fruitless task. You need to have some objective in mind, otherwise inspiration is wasted.
