Motivation doesn’t really work as it comes from external sources and isn’t sustainable. We often confuse motivation for inspiration.
We blame the people in our lives or the circumstances around us for not being inspiring. We want them to do our work for us. It can feel easier to put the responsibility on the things, people, and situations outside of us to feel inspired enough to do our best or be best. The truth is that this doesn’t work because it keeps us from being fulfilled. At the end of the day, anything that has us abdicate our responsibility to someone or something else will not leave us fulfilled.
Inspiration is always within us if we tune in. It’s a choice. In any moment, we can remember who we are and what we came here to do, and what is most important. That’s what can get us into the right action.
Stop waiting until you’re motivated. It’s fleeting and you have no power over it. Choose inspiration instead.
