Inspiration, Motivation, Feeling Happy and things like that is how our life gets that insulin and drive to keep things going or done.
Today I felt like writing about how motivation and inspiration effects me and also how I get motivated to do things, which might give you that Aha! moment.
You don’t need self-help books or motivational speakers like Tony Robbins or even reading blog posts like this one. All you need is heart and brain, oh wait! Isn’t that few billions of people in this world?
Sometimes people get stuck with questions like How am I going to do that? or This is my goal but I don’t know where to start.
Well, you started already by asking questions and that’s a good start!
I don’t want to give you yet another speech of successful stories because that’s pretty much a quick fix (patch) in your brain that will fade out in few minutes, hours or a day.
So here is how I motivate and inspire my self in certain things…
To be honest, I never liked reading books. I haven’t done that in high school or college, even though I finished my association degree with honors at 3.75GPA.
But my internal feeling and passion told me differently. I wanted to read books, yet I just didn’t have that drive or push… like for example… Joe read the 50 page book god damn it! it’s just 50 pages, you can do it!
One day I was thinking about reading a good book, recommended by many but I did not have the guts to do it (I hate reading hard cover books, magazines…) so I was bit brainstorming… “Why do I read 50-100 blog posts each day which end up with 10.000 – 50.000 words per day , yet I can’t read one damn book?”
I got that Aha! moment….
I read stuff online, I don’t have to flip pages, I don’t get distracted because I do read usually in my free time ….so there must be a way that I can read books.
You are probably thinking “Oh he started reading e-books” No, I did not.
I went to Amazon.com check-out the book it was recommended to me and I found out that there is an Audio book, so I said ill give it a try! I basically went though that book in two days (250 pages) with joy because:
- Book was really good written and I learned a lot
- I did not get distracted
- I did not have to flip the pages and hear that noise….kschhhtt…
- I listened to that book everywhere I could on my iPod Touch…
I am not telling you this because I want you to do the same
….think about it…
I hate something but internally I want to fix it…and to fix it I had to find another way of doing it….doing it with joy…
It’s simple as that…
I applied that method to everything nowadays. I get inspired because I found a way to fix what I have been wanting to fix for long time and I get motivated by accomplishing those goals.
You can do it too. You want to make something out of your life? You want to be rich, but for some odd reason you are still working that same job for 12 years?
I mean internally (emotionally) you want to, but you don’t know how to….
Well my friends, take 30 minutes of your 24hours without distractions and think (brainstorm) how would you change your life by enjoying things.
Start off with small things… as you get better at accomplishing small goals your desire and motivation will give you that happy feeling and inspiration to do big things.
Hope this article made sense to you.
