Be Inspired

Inspiration is a hard currency for motivation and is the fuel that sets the soul on fire. Nothing is too difficult given the right amount of inspiration.

So, how do we invoke this ‘inspirare,’ the breath that fills us with excitement and energy?

Be Inspired

Although both powerful and important, inspiration is not too difficult to find. Finding it has to do with who you are and what you love – you can find inspiration in nature, in other people, in giving, in doing things and even in simply being.

The key is to be aware, awake and open to inspiration; to keep your mind, body and soul alive to the possibilities around you. Here are some tips to add more inspiration to your life.

Be open to experience

Famous martial artist, Bruce Lee, offers his advice on how to be open to the experience. “Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup.

You put the water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”

Make way for peace

Yoga and meditation are excellent ways to get your mind and body into a space that’s open to your own intrinsic intelligence, to connect you to your soul, where inspiration lies in wait. Be Inspired

Let nature speak

Nature has numerous health and wellness benefits. Allowing yourself to breathe in its power will automatically reward you with inspiration.

Practice gratitude

Sometimes all we need to find inspiration is to reflect on what we have with a grateful mindset. Looking back at what you have achieved, dreams realized and goals met can invoke inspiration.

Listen to others

The internet is a treasure trove of inspiration and stories, TED talks are known for cutting-edge and inspirational material and diverse topics – find what interests you and allow other people’s insights and wisdom to drive your creativity.

Try a new thing

Begin lessons or start a new ritual that connects you to something you’ve always wanted to do but wasn’t sure you could. Learning new things opens us up to our own possibilities.

Be artistic

Even if you battle to draw a stick person, open up your creativity by doing something artistic, whether attending a pottery class, learning how to roast coffee beans, making your own natural essences, creating a vision board or simply concentrating on making your doodles into art, the very act of creating inspires creative thought
