It is not always simple to get Inspired.
It’s nearly difficult to sit about and wait for inspiration to come to us.
I mean, inspiration doesn’t just come to us.
Inspiration is required to become and remain productive.
We must organize our lives in such a manner that we can discover the motivation we need to take action and produce at a high level.
You must arrange your life in such a way that it fosters creativity and inspiration.
That being said, you may use one or more of the hacks listed below to improve your inspiration game and learn how to become inspired - even when you’re feeling stuck.
These suggestions should help you enter into a state of inspiration and creative flow.
1. Learning as a way to get Inspired
Books are a veritable wealth of ideas. Of course, you are no longer required to read. You might listen to a podcast, read blog posts, or watch documentaries, for example, and be just as motivated. But there is something considerably more inspiring for me about reading a book, investing that time, and uncovering hidden pearls of knowledge. So just, read more and be inspired.
When I’m not feeling very motivated, I turn to education and study.
I’ve discovered that allowing myself one hour of pure passive study really increases my inspiration.
So pick up a book, nonfiction or fiction, enroll in an online course, watch a TED presentation or other inspiring individuals on YouTube, or go for a stroll while listening to your favorite podcast or audiobook.
Learn for at least 30 minutes every day to increase your level of motivation.
Always seek to improve your knowledge.
2. Go out and have Fun
It’s no surprise that if you sit around and don’t do anything slightly enjoyable, you won’t feel inspired or have innovative thoughts.
It’s difficult to be motivated when you’re experiencing bad thoughts, anxious about something, or bored out of your mind.
It’s literally impossible.
No great idea was born through difficulty.
Doesn’t it seem like a great idea?
So, let’s have some fun!
- Take a stroll
- Set out on an adventure.
- Exercise or Do Yoga
- Watch a Film
- Get together with a friend
- Take your husband, boyfriend, or girlfriend out to supper.
… Whatever makes you happy.
When you surround yourself with good thoughts, people, and situations, ideas will begin to emerge.
You must, however, exercise caution…
When you’re having a good time, it’s easy to lose track of time and slip into the procrastination trap.
Set a time restriction for your “fun time” to avoid procrastinating and going on a fun-time binge.
Check-in with your emotions after your enjoyable time, make a note of how you’re feeling, and then return to your creative flow.
More often than not, I find myself motivated after a wonderful time.
3. Surround Yourself With Inspiring People
Surround yourself with individuals who inspire you and have insight and amazingness to give. Maybe they’ve done something you’ve always wanted to do.
It may be any of the following people:
Life coach mentor
A new acquaintance
A new Interest Group (either online or physical support group)
Get in touch with people that have a variety of abilities that might ignite areas of inspiration for you.
This is related to the concept of studying for inspiration.
It is extremely beneficial to surround yourself (online or in-person) with individuals that inspire you and have the results you desire in your life.
When I originally started my internet business, I surrounded myself with virtual badasses and soaked up all the knowledge I could from them.
Surround yourself with amazing individuals who will help you learn, grow, exchange insights, and encourage one another.
With so many of us on social media, it’s easy to be swayed. In both positive and negative ways. However, when we consciously choose somebody to follow, we might be favorably impacted or motivated. I follow Instagram accounts that share huge, pricey Surrey houses, which helps me work towards (hopefully) purchasing something comparable one day. Choose who you follow with consideration.
4. Keep a Journal to Find Inspiration
How many times have we mentioned journaling as a way to stimulate personal growth?
I’m sure you’re sick of hearing about the benefits of journaling.
But I’m going to place it under the category of being inspired.
Journaling your way to inspiration is the most effective way to draw out any creative ideas that are hiding in the back of your mind.
Journaling allows you to bring your ideas to the surface (or to paper) and bring them to life.
I implore you to get up 20 minutes earlier, buy a brand new journal (psst, here’s my favorite one), and spend 15 minutes writing about anything and everything.
There are no restrictions or criteria; simply let your creative juices flow freely onto the page.
Journaling is the remedy to feeling trapped and uninspired since it may reveal truths and ideas that you didn’t even realize were possible for you.
And I make it a daily habit that I never fail to follow.
5. Just Get into Work
When humans are productive, they are happiest. If you don’t believe me, start keeping note of how you feel when you go home from work on a day of success vs a day of hard disappointment. Every time, productivity feels better.
Newton’s first rule of motion holds true not only for physical things but also for your own inspiration: an item in motion stays in motion.
The persistent beginning is the most effective technique I’ve found to generate momentum. Instead of concentrating on a task in its totality, simply begin. It’s okay if you run out of steam. Restart in five minutes, an hour, or a day. The important thing is to keep starting. The finishing process then takes care of itself.
Waiting for inspiration to strike is the most effective way to kill it. Loaf about, and the spark is unlikely to occur.
Finding inspiration does not have to be difficult.
In reality, it is only when we make things difficult that it appears in our life.
Try one of the simple ideas above to get inspired right now.
The inspiration suggestions I’ve provided may seem simple to you, but I believe we make life and finding inspiration more difficult than they need to be.
When we complicate things, creativity seldom comes to visit.
To be inspired, we sometimes simply need to take a break, have some fun, hang out with great people, and journal for a while.
So what was your way of finding Inspiration?
