How to Be Inspired and Ready for the Seemingly Impossible!
There are those days when you wake up feeling just right, ready to take on the day.
But then there is a little voice inside your head that’s holding you back. It doesn’t quiet down. It’s constant.
That idea that you were so passionate about once isn’t there anymore. You face the truth, sit back and finally accept that you don’t feel motivated enough to do anything.
It is natural for all of us to, at times, be stuck in a rut.
If you are not entirely motivated about your work, it might even be difficult to wake up and look forward to it every day.
However, when you are drifting away, you should know that it doesn’t always have to be like this. Here are a few ways to regain inspiration and pick yourself back up:
Connect the Dots
At times, when you are trying to reach a goal, it might be impossible to connect the dots from where you currently are.
You will need to blindly trust yourself. It might sound difficult right now. Trusting that you will reach your dreams—even when you don’t have the slightest clue of how—will help you.
Sometimes, you can’t connect dots when looking ahead; you have to take a step back and analyze. Then move ahead.
Consider Your Work Environment
Take a good look around your room—does it inspire you? It is quiet? Does it motivate you to do something? At times, one of the common reasons behind lack of inspiration is pushing ourselves to work in an environment we feel uncomfortable in.
When you constantly try to discipline yourself in an environment you don’t want to, you feel less productive. Why not add some art to the walls? Maybe frame your favorite quote. If you feel you are more energetic at night, why not work at night?
Are You Forcing Yourself to Work?
Do you often feel that you are trying to force your way into working or taking action? You could actually be working too hard.
The first thing many people think immediately after waking up is, “What do I need to do today?” When they do get the answer, it is often a downward spiral to misery, as if their work and responsibilities have suddenly started to weigh them down.
Forcing yourself to work is like paddling upstream when what you need to do is paddle down it. When you wake up and spend time to picture the bigger things instead of the minute details, visualize your bigger goals, you will soon see yourself working with all the inspiration and not forcing your way through things.
