15 WAYS TO REDISCOVER YOUR INSPIRATION
Inspiration comes and goes . We’re supremely
motivated and inspired at times, and in those
moments we accomplish great things way faster
than we do when we’re not particularly inspired
to hustle, create, and impact the world in a
It’s those few who are consistently inspired by a
greater purpose beyond their own gain that shape
the world we live in. So how do we join these few
in forging not only our own successful endeavors,
but seeing such profound success that the world
benefits as well?
15 Ways To Get Re-Inspired
1. Be in nature
Be in nature at least once a month. It’s in nature
that we find inspiration. It’s where we remove
ourselves from the noise of our day to day lives,
find clarity, and focus.
If you’re constantly “in it”, you’ll find your mind
will clutter, and your inspiration will flee.
Venture to the great out doors and let adventure
2. Surround yourself with motivated people
You are the average of the 5 people you hang out
with the most. If you hang our with millionaire’s,
odds are you’re one as well. If you hang out with
motivated people , you’re probably a motivated
person as well.
Be very cognizant of who you hang out with.
Choose your friends wisely. They’re influence on
you is unavoidable.
3. Never think you’re “there”
I’ll always think that I have to improve on my
writing – and that I have a long way to go to
being a good writer. It keeps me inspired to learn
and grow. If I thought I was a good writer I’d
not only be lying to myself, but I’d be allowing
laziness to peer its head into my life.
Laziness is the devil. Don’t think you’re great, be
4. Don’t attempt insignificant feats
Do you get excited by small goals that you know
you can accomplish with ease? Of course not. It’s
the big, audacious, bold goals and dreams that
excite you, so don’t waist your time with the
small stuff. Think bigger and be bigger.
5. Be healthy
Be healthy and active. If you’re healthy you’ll
have more energy, and if you have more energy
you’ll find that you’re far more motivated and
inspired than you are if you’re tired and sluggish.
Take pride in your health and your work. Being
healthy is a tool that you can use to your
advantage, or something that can work against
you. What’s great is it’s completely up to you.
6. Read often
Great men have always been voracious readers.
Napoleon was, as is Gates, and so was Jobs. If
you want to be inspired, pick up a book, it never
fails. If a paperback book slows you down then
you can always listen to self development audio
7. Have tunnel vision
Don’t have a back-up plan, a floor, or a ceiling.
Failure shouldn’t be an option, nor should you put
a limit on your success.
Focus on one goal, and let that one goal be the
only thing that matters.
8. Get excited by adversity
It’s in struggle that we grow. Get excited about
this. Too many allow adversity crush their
enthusiasm and motivation, but it shouldn’t. It’s
a challenge, and challenges are exciting.
Rise to them. Don’t get pushed back by anything.
9. Love problem solving
The road to success is, essentially, one big
problem you have to solve. Let that problem excite
you. Don’t look at your long, arduous road to
success as a negative, instead look at it as a
Your mindset will dictate how inspired you are and
whether or not you remain consistently inspired
10. Remove negative people from your life entirely
Negative people are the cancer of society, but
they don’t need to be a negative influence on
your life. Just get rid of them, and get rid of
If you’re only surrounded by inspired people, you
to will be inspired, motivated, and happy.
11. Write 3 things you’re thankful for everyday
We far too often focus only on what we don’t
have, rather than everything we do have. The
problem with that approach is that happiness will
forever elude our grasp.
If our happiness and motivation is contingent on
a future accomplishment, when we accomplish
what we’ve set out to do, we’ll then make our
happiness contingent on an even greater
accomplishment. Thus, happiness will always be
out of our grasp.
Be happy and thankful first, then let that
enthusiasm and energy inspire you to accomplish
12. Practice success
Practice success by identifying the little goals
that you accomplish in your life. Write down your
accomplishments, even if they’re small like going
for a run or writing an article for a publication.
Practice success everyday and you’ll live life as a
13. Be a fighter
I love a man who grins when he fights. Winston
I love that quote. It reminds me of the song
Fighter, by Bruce Springsteen. Enjoy adversity.
Welcome it. Adversity is what will make you
stronger. It’s only through great adversity that
great men and women reach accomplish what
they’ve set out to accomplish.
If success was easy, everyone would be there.
Get inspired by your struggles just like a fighter
gets motivated to step into the ring and see what
he’s made of.
14. Eat healthy
Eating unhealthy leads to depression and obesity.
It’s nearly impossible to be inspired when your
body is uninspiring or you’re depressed.
As a simple rule for eating healthy, eat only
things that you can pick or kill. Your diet should
be made up of things that come from the earth.
Stay away from anything man-made or packaged.
15. Study greatness
There are patterns to success. The more you
study great people, the more you’ll see these
patterns and incorporate them in your own
life. Don’t, however, merely read about great
people, study their lives. If you can, read about
what others close to them have said, read articles
about how they accomplished greatness.
Greatness inspires. The more you see that
success can, indeed, happen, the more you’ll be
inspired to accomplish your own audacious goals.
You can even read inspirational quotes , that will
be sure to motivate you and shift you into the
right frame of mind to be openly inspired.
