Inspiration Over Motivation For Your Best Life
We learned many years ago that Inspiration over motivation will help you stay on track to reach your goals. Today our topic is Why Focus On Inspiration Over Motivation For Your Best Life.
You see inspiration and motivation are not the same things. There is an argument that they are quite the opposite of one another. Inspiration is a strong desire to create, to reach out and make something or do something that never existed before. Motivation is a general willingness or the reason for an action.
What’s the difference? It’s all in how we express it.
Motivated people charge forward, not letting anyone stop them or interfere with their process.
Inspiration, on the other hand, pulls others in your wake and drags them along.
With motivation, you grab the vision and run with it. With inspiration, the idea grabs hold of you.
Have you ever had an inspiration? You can probably remember every detail, the time it hit, the idea behind it, and the way it felt. Motivation comes and goes and maybe you remember the project that came from it, but not in the fine detail that inspiration leaves on you.
And that is probably the most significant difference. Motivation wears out. Often it runs out long before the project is over. Inspiration can last a lifetime and take you to new horizons you’d never thought of before.
Motivation is like the coach that yells about “getting up,” “hitting harder,” and “running faster.” It’s the push that we need to get over the initial slump or over that mid-point.
Inspiration doesn’t need a push or a press. Inspiration is more like finding a new perspective, a fresh eye that you’ve never known existed.
You cannot teach inspiration; it can’t be passed on from one person to another. Inspiration comes indirectly, stealing into our thoughts when we don’t expect it when we’re clear-headed and often concentrating on something else.
Motivation is the drive to bring creation to reality and to finish the project, but inspiration is the birth of creativity. Inspiration can be a life-changing event that completely realigns your perspective on a permanent basis.
Motivation is independent of passion. Motivation is often a replacement for passion; inspiration is a passion at its most raw. Inspiration is an idea, a vision that takes hold and never lets go. People who are inspired are more likely to succeed, and more likely to influence others.
Being motivated to a task typically does not motivate another. Being inspired, on the other is contagious. Inspired people catch others in their passion and create inspiration in them. It’s easy to get caught up in a dream and then dream your vision, making inspiration the more valuable of the two.
By adopting an inspirational mindset, you can establish a healthy, active lifestyle that will benefit you both physically and mentally.

“Research shows that regular walking actually modifies your nervous system so much that you’ll experience a decrease in anger and hostility,” she says, especially when you're going for a stroll through some greenery or soaking in a bit of sunlight. This can be particularly helpful during the colder months when seasonal depression spikes.
