“Motivation is when you get hold of an idea
and carry it through to its conclusion, and inspiration
is when an idea gets hold of you and  carries you
where you are intended to go.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer
How often do you say or hear someone say, “I’m just not motivated, or I need to get motivated”? We seek something to motivate us like a new promotion, competition, relationship, body, or money.
Motivation is excellent, a driving force in achieving a goal. The problem is that motivation is short-lived. We accomplish the goal and lose motivation, or it changes direction.
Inspiration is life-changing.
Motivation generates externally.
Inspiration comes From Within.

So if you are having trouble finding or sustaining motivation, shift to discover your inspiration from within.
Be curious!
Gain clarity about your life aspirations. What are your intentions? Who do you want to be? What brings joy and meaning to your life? Unlock Your Why and inspire the life you want to live and love.

Use this Clarity Exercise to ignite your inspiration.
What are three words that best describe you and the life you want to live? Use these words as beacons to guide your thoughts and actions:

  1. ___________________________.  The Reason I chose this word ant that it is important to me is ______________________________________.
  2. ___________________________. The Reason I chose this word ant that it is important to me is ______________________________________.
  1. ___________________________. The Reason I chose this word ant that it is important to me is ______________________________________.
I’m a mom of 3 kids and two dogs, married close to 30 years, and spent most of my life in a corporate career. I am blessed and grateful. I’ve lived a busy, fulfilled, and motivated life. What is fascinating to me is that it wasn’t until I was 50 that I recognized what inspired me from within, and that’s when I went back to school and started my own business.
Defining my three words was a foundational step on my new inspired journey to live the aspirational life that aligns with who I AM.
Love – Generate Positive Energy
Learn – Live with a Growth Mindset
Live – Be Present, Live it Live
Each one of these words has stories behind them that I’ll save for another time. My point is that they are meaningful to me and empower me to live my best self.

Once we have clarity, congruency is also vital to spark inspiration. Create a simple personal mission statement to align your actions with your aspirations by filling in the blanks.
To Be __________________________________
To Do __________________________________
So that _________________________________
As an entrepreneur, my mission statement is a valuable guide to navigate the ups and downs along the way.
To Be: Honest, Hopeful and Healthy
To Do: Love, Learn and Live (be present)
So That: I honor my best self and live purposely.
When you find clarity in your words and feel congruent, try putting them in places to inspire you. Consider putting them on your phone with an alarm to remind you throughout the day of who you want to be and how you want to live. Our daily choices create the life we live.

A way to help you be intentional with tapping into your inspiration from within is to consistently start your day connecting with yourself before letting in the outside world.
Give yourself time to awaken your body, mind, and spirit before the day rushes in and consumes your energy and focus.
AM Prompts:
What are my top 3 priorities today?
1.  ______________________________________
2. ______________________________________
3. ______________________________________
How can I contribute the most value today ?_________________________________________
In the evening, make it habit to activate your growth mindset by gaining inspiration from your day’s wins and learnings.
PM Assessments:
Did I live my personal best today?
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Did I grow so that my best self is even better tomorrow?
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
If you’re waiting on motivation to reach higher, think bigger and take action, choose to get curious and be inspired by your life aspirations.
Seek, and you will find your inspiration From Within! 
You always want to be in the driver’s seat of your own life or life will drive you.”  ~ Oprah Winfrey
