I am currently taking a success masterclass and am learning a great deal about myself , my dreams and my goals. In this weeks lesson, the subject of inspiration was discussed. A lot has been said about inspired action vs. random action and finding inspiration within ourselves, but I now believe in something more.
We need inspiration to get anything truly productive done. So where do we find it? Especially when we just can’t seem to. The answer is in each other. Everything we desire has been done in some way by someone. But there is a factor that is often ignored. That is reinforcement.
We all have seen, read or heard of someone accomplishing what we may be dreaming of. We feel the excitement within and vow to start doing what they did, only to let it fade away as we fall back into the same things we’ve always done. For example, new years resolutions. We say we’re going to eat right and exercise. We may even join a gym and start, then we stop going as often and go back to eating fast food, citing we don’t have the time or we didn’t expect the challenge to be as difficult.
The reason we fall back isn’t we don’t really want to accomplish it, but we lose our inspiration. Once we find inspiration in something, it needs to be visited on a daily basis. We need to go back to the success story and reinforce it in our subconscious mind. We need to see how others have overcome the challenges and know we can too.
I am committed to my dreams and goals. It is the inspiration of others that ensure I can do it also.
