There is a reason for these low moments. We need inspiration. Inspiration is what causes us to go after the goal in the first place. Without inspiration you’re dead in the water.
Say for instance you are going fishing and you love to fish. Oh boy, motivation comes in a flash. You jump out of bed, swallow down breakfast, and get your tackle box ready. You sprint to the car and off you go with a feeling of great excitement.
As simple as it may sound, many people tend to get them mixed up. They fail to understand the differences between the both and they often think they are using towards motivation when they are actually using away motivations and vice verse.
learn new things can also be drawn from a great book, movie or play. Look keenly around you for a role model. A single person can change your life for the better. Learn about the lives of great men and know what drove them to achieve impossible feats. Take failure in your stride and be persistent in your efforts.
In trading, as well as in our ordinary lives, what we really want is to be moving towards our goals and we want to be moving constantly. When we achieve our existing goals, new ones will be created.
All motivation comes from the reasons we have for doing something. If you don’t have a reason to do something you won’t do it. This is what creates the 4 different types of motivation.
Start paying attention to what catches your eye and take note. Where or what inspires you? Some common sources include pictures, childhood memories, favorite movies, books or pieces of music, friends, family, and pets, travel destinations you may or may not have been to, works of art, nature, seasons, holidays, celebrities and more. Did you find anything that you like, that stimulates your mind to creative thought or the making of art? Congratulations! You found inspiration!
I hope you find inspiration in your day, in your month, in your year, and in your life. It won’t always be so obvious. But things to appreciate, beautiful things, things that have the ability to inspire you… they’re out there. And my advice to you is this: if you want to be a great leader, get out and grab as much inspiration as you can. Great leaders have to be bold, and they have to take risks. No one can do that all the time without being attacked by doubts, just as I was that morning. But inspiration is out there, too, if you’ll reach out and take hold of it. And a little inspiration, from time to time, is all it will take to keep you going despite the adversity created by your own doubting mind.
