When we begin to bring our natural creativity into our business, the idea of being inspired always comes up, but what is inspiration? Many people have an idea that it is this mysterious thing that you must wait for and that only a select few can have. This is not the case at all. We can and should be responsible for our own inspiration. It comes from us and we can control it.
Joining a group is for sure a fantastic way to get plenty of weight loss inspiration. You can share triumphs and you can also give each other moral support within the group. You will hear of others successes and gain get inspired and advice from them. Weight loss groups can be the kind where you attend regular meetings or they can be virtual groups that you join online.
Confucius said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”. I love the quote and I completely agree with it. However, if I were to change anything about it I may change “job you love” with “positive motivator”, because with positive motivation everything in life becomes easier.
There would be no flu shots to prevent the flu, there would not be a vaccination for the mumps (which by itself is a deadly disease) nor would there be simple over the counter medicine. Need a cough drop? Nope, nobody was really inspired to invent it.
For example, when you see an open fire, you want to stay away from it so that you don’t burn yourself. If you’re in the open, you’ll stand further away from the fire. If you’re in a closed area, you might use a cover or a shield to avoid potentially getting hurt from the fire. Sometimes, you’ll do both. In essence, you want to protect yourself from the fire. In the process of standing further away, using a shield or any protection mechanisms that you’ve used is pretty much driven by your AF motivation.
While work on the hen house was still in full swing, I had a day off. It was the most marvellous sunny weather with just a gentle cooling breeze. I went walking in the Severn Valley, just a few miles downstream to where the Industrial Revolution started three centuries ago.
Somewhere in week three you notice things are slowing down again and maybe it’s not quite so important to get to the gym EVERY workout… Besides, you decide, it was naive to think you’d be able to keep moving forward that fast. After all, no one else does either, right? Even on bad days you’re doing as much as the next person, and you’re still smarter, better looking and more likable than them anyway.
These ideas, these notions, are what inspiration really is. We actually have this inspiration all the time, but we ignore or discount the conversation, we make it quiet in our mind, we shout it down with the thoughts of “what needs to be done.” Once we begin to be responsible for our own inspiration, it will reward us by giving us ideas we never thought possible.
