Where to Find Inspiration

posted by Alex Blackwell

“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” – Jack London

Sometimes the world seems to be saying, “Give up,” because the odds are just too much. When this happens, the best thing to do is to surrender and then find the inspiration to start all over again.

But, where can you find inspiration?

The answer is simple: Inspiration is everywhere, you just need to remember where to find it…

You can find inspiration by listening to an amazing story, watching an encouraging television program, or being with a person you find impressive.

You can find inspiration by letting go of your negative thoughts and concentrating on the dreams that live deep inside your heart.

You can find inspiration by noticing the small things around you.

You can find inspiration by spending time with your loved ones.

You can find inspiration by thinking of the talents that have helped you accomplish a difficult task.

You can find inspiration by going for a run, reading a blog or curling up with a book.

You can find inspiration by reconnecting with your spirituality, sitting with nature or listening to music.

You can find inspiration by working with creative people, breaking out of your routine or finding time for silence.

And after finding that one spark that re-ignites your inspiration, share it with the world by doing something amazing. When you do, you’ll help others find inspiration, too.
