What inspires you to be a better version of yourself? Is it the people in your life, animals that you see or nature that you look at when you go for a walk? Maybe it is a combination of all and much more. Inspiration can come from all areas of life, big and small. There are many things that can inspire us to evolve in the best way possible 🙂
Inspiration helps us keep motivated. This is especially good to help you achieve your goals and dreams. When we get inspired it lights a fire within us. Sending a jolt of energy that pushes us straight into doing something we love or need to get done. What we love could be things such as painting, running or cooking. Something that needs to be done could be running errands, answering emails or cleaning your home. Whatever it may be, it is always a great feeling to want to put effort into a task naturally. Not feeling forced.
Motivation is needed to achieve what we want and need to get done. Whether the task is to help achieve a goal that we want to obtain or something that needs to be done, such as planning a birthday party for a close friend. I am sure you know the difference between your wants and needs. Sometimes a task or goal, can be both a want and a need. It is for you to differentiate between the two and decide what they mean to you. It is important to love yourself, showing yourself support and kindness in all that you do ❤
What is very motivating is being able to visualise the outcome of what it is that you want to achieve as a result of your actions. A great way to ensure that you are able to draw inspiration everyday, is to create a vision board. If you are unsure what a vision board is, it is a board (that you can make from paper, cardboard – any materials you like), that you add your goals and dreams to. You can cut out pages from magazines, print off positive quotes, write goals and draw pictures of the future you desire 😀
You want to place your vision board somewhere that you will see it easily on a daily basis. Places like the bathroom, on a mirror you use everyday or the refrigerator door are great. It can also be helpful to take a photo of it and set as your background on your phone, so that you can take it everywhere you go. Seeing your vision board often will encourage you to keep moving forward and be motivated, as it is a wonderful reminder of what you are working towards.
Explore more, as to what gets you inspired the most. Try new things. Go to places that you have never been to before. Eat different foods from a range of cultures. Do something adventurous – go skydiving, rock climbing or go on a three day camping trip. You can do these things with family or friends too. It is much more fun having adventures with people who you love the most. Experiencing different places and things will help you get inspired and with time you will understand what brings the creative being out of you.
It can be motivating to work on your goals everyday, even for a small amount of time – such as 10 minutes. Have a planner and schedule times for you to be able to set aside time to complete a section of you goals each week. Doing this holds you accountable and confirms when you need to be completing tasks by. A Journal can be handy to express how you are feeling each day of your journey. It is lovely as you can read it and reflect on previous weeks at the end of each month. It can be motivating when reviewing as you will be able to see how far you have progressed ❤
Today on my YouTube channel I am sharing with you a pastel cactus desert acrylic night painting. The full moon is fighting to shine and overcome the purple storm. It is wonderful how there is beauty in everything, including a desert in the middle of nowhere. I love cactus! Such a beautiful part of nature 😀
I hope you enjoy the video. Thank you so much for reading and watching! Do whatever is needed to keep yourself inspired and motivated to achieve your goals. Compete with only who you were yesterday and keep evolving into the best version of yourself. Have a lovely day!
