You and I know that you do your best work when you feel inspired.
The thing is, you do not always feel inspired and yet, you want things.
You want a business that changes lives and generates a great income for you and yours…
You want that business to be convenient to the life you want to lead…
You want to have relationships that lift you up…
You want to get fit and stay healthy…
You want so much more than all of this and it is just so much easier to do the work to get them when you are feeling inspired and enthusiastic but…
Life is happening all the time and it is so easy for it to cause you to drop out of the inspired state and fall back down to earth (actually, below the earth!) and it is tedious because you know there is so much more to you than this but you just cannot seem to keep your head in the right place all the time, can you?
I get it…
I too struggle at times to remain at peak performance and yes, I can push through because I must but it would be so much easier to FEEL inspired as well. And I truly believe that part of our life journey is to discover how to tap into the highest parts of ourself all the time.
It seems impossible, but is it?
Surely, this is what personal mastery is all about – Choosing to CHOOSE what mood we allow ourselves to be in at any one moment. Choosing no longer to leave it to chance. Creating a space within ourselves to be powerful at all times and I suppose, doing the work anyway, even when we do not get to that inspired place.
Because it can become an excuse not to do the work we know to do because we spend all the time in the world trying to inspire ourselves. Most times, you have to move anyway.
Inspiration does however, make it easier to move.
So, what can you do?
How can you raise your mood and deliberately put yourself in the right inspirational state?
Simple things work and none of them have to take long but they must become something of a ritual to you. Something practised consistently, persistently, deliberately in order for them to work and that, my honey, is where we all fall down.
We try things once, twice and then we fall back into old patterns and wonder why we keep getting the same old, same old results.
Firstly, believe it is possible for you to master your mood and inspiration level at all times.
Secondly, commit to making it a reality in your life
Thirdly, check what you allow to influence you.
Fourthly, find rituals that work for you
For instance spend time staring at pictures of your kids and choosing to feel the love you have for them envelope you. IF they are your reason to work hard, tap into that reason, hold it at the front of your mind for a few minutes and see the impact that has on you.
Put on a little music that stirs your creative juices. Close your eyes, listen in to it and let it impact every part of you as you deliberately slow down and listen.
Have a journal to hand to enable you record any thoughts that pop into mind and that could become the seeds for your next blog post.
Are you into Yoga, Pilates? Could you take up a few poses and deliberately choose to tap into the deepest parts of you as you practise?
Read a passage from a book that inspires you and really feel it. Let the wisdom of the book really seep into your spirit and again, record any thoughts that pop into mind.
Go outside. Go for a walk or if you do not have time for that, just be outside, looking around at nature, feeling the abundance that is all around you. Look at a potted plant even and see how with a little moisture and some soil, it grows and grows beautifully. Realise that you do not need much to be inspired, you just need to tap into what is already there.
Finally, if all else fails, just do the work. Sometimes, the work itself is the thing you need to get truly inspired.
Yes, it is great to attend all manner of personal development conferences and listen to talks and such but at some point, we must learn to stir ourselves up.
We must learn to deliberately choose a better mood because we can.
We can be masters and creators of our inner circumstance. As always, we have to choose.
Fight for, create the life, the business you want.
