I saw this quote from Esther Hicks/Abraham recently and it got me thinking and realizing that I’d rather be inspired than motivated – what do you think?
“Inspiration comes forth from within. It’s what the light burning within you is about, as opposed to motivation, which is doing it because if you don’t do it, there will be negative repercussions. Motivation is making myself do something that I don’t really want to do. Inspiration is having the clear picture of what I am wanting — and letting Universal forces come into play to get the outcome.”
Action Step: Make a list of what inspires you. What lights you up from within? Get a clear picture of what that is – create a vision board if it helps. Ask yourself how you can bring more of what inspires you into your daily life.
You can use this affirmation as well:
I give myself permission to do more of what inspires me.
P.S. Speaking of being inspired - do you feel inspired at work or do you feel stressed, overwhelmed and frustrated? Many people have a tough time at work and it's difficult to feel inspired when you have to go every day to a job that you don't enjoy - this is particularly true for those who are highly sensitive. I created a Guide with 7 Tips to Survive and Thrive at Work. I wrote it for HSP's, but the strategies are applicable to everybody.
