We always enjoy reading about how people successfully achieve their goals, transform businesses and sometimes make the most surprising discoveries that transforms the whole playing field. Most of the time, a lot of people draw motivations from these success stories and try to integrate it into their life by trying to understand exactly what challenges they overcame and why they desired to do what they did.
After reading so many success stories and talking to colleagues who have in their own way reached their goals, I’ve realized that there are so many opportunities to be inspired and most of them can be found in the simplest of ways.
Let’s start of with people. A lot of success stories actually depend on your circle of friends, colleagues or even the family members you interact with. It takes time to build relationships but in the end it will be all worth it if these people help you achieve your goals.
Next let’s go for some alone time. I’m actually a big fan of deep thinking in the showers and most of the bright ideas comes to us while having deep thoughts in the shower.Just look at Archimedes’s history and how he discovered the Archimedes principle while submerged in the bath or better yet why not ask Warren Buffett, who he dreamt up his $5 billion investment in Bank of America while he was taking a bath. Of course there are lots of other ways to find inspiration by yourself like travelling and chasing other life changing experiences.
Lastly, let’s try drawing inspiration from art, music, films and sports. The simplest lines from a movie or book and lyrics from a song tend to hit the exact state of mind that leads to an inspiration for most of us.
Now if you have a hard time believing me why not first try some of these ways yourself and see what I mean. Maybe just maybe you might find your own inspiration along the way.
Cheers and good luck!
