Inspiration Comes From Within!
By Aruba Abid
“Inspiration is the solution for the grind of building a business and the foundation of a healthy work-life balance.”
To succeed, you need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you. Yes, inspiration may come to anyone at any point in time, but you always can create an encouraging climate within you, so that you get self-inspired. For self-inspiration, both your heart and mind need to be relaxed, so that you can take the inspiration from within, using it as a source of energy that also allows you to adopt a real sense of direction.
Inspiration > Motivation > Action
QC Legal has implemented 5 ways to turn on the light within and inspire yourself to take action:
Decide. Make a decision and ‘go.’ If you swing back and forth, ummh and ahh, or can’t make up your mind, lots of energy is wasted or misplaced. Instead, decide on something you want, test it, and go for it! Take action and test your results.
FIND SOME ROLE MODELS
A key ingredient for living an inspired bold life is to find role models that we can emulate and imitate – people who help us find ourselves in the process. People whose stories and examples ignite the fire inside of our bellies.
DRAW FROM WORDS OF WISDOM
Quotes are your best friend. Whenever you need to summon your inner-strength, it helps if you have little one-liner reminders that keep you going.
SHIFT TO THE FUTURE
Dwelling on the past is a quick way to bring yourself down. It’s an emotional anchor. To lift yourself up, switch on to the future and envision the sheer range of possibilities.
CONNECT TO YOUR VALUES
You can connect everything you do, to your values. This is a powerful way to inspire yourself. For example, if one of your values is ‘adventure’ at work, turn every project into an ‘epic adventure’ and make it about the journey. There’s always a big villain or challenge to conquer, an epic win to shoot for, and plenty of growth along the way.
Always remember, every great dream begins with a dreamer. You have within you, the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars, and change the world.
