Inspiration Makes You Take Action Now

If you want to take action now and get things done, find something that inspires you to move. When you do, you will accomplish great and wonderful things.

 

Inspiration is the magic that helps you to take action now and get things done.

 

Each day there are literally hundreds upon hundreds of things that we must do. Some things we do without fail. Other things get pushed so far on the back burner they fall off the stove! People often wonder why one set of tasks gets done while another set gets ignored. The difference often comes down to the fact that the set that gets done inspires while the set that doesn’t get done does not. The secret that causes one to take action now is inspiration.

Inspiration is a weird thing. It is typically thought of as being mentally stimulated to do or think something. When we are inspired we can take action now and accomplish great and wonderful things. Inspiration is what causes us to climb Mt. Everest and walk Kilimanjaro. Inspiration is what causes us to start businesses and build better mouse traps. If you have a long to-do list and no idea how you are going to get through it all, start looking for something inspirational in each task you must complete. For example, if you have a stack of articles you must read for a presentation, inspiration may come from anticipating the joy you will feel in a job well done. If you have a pile of snail mail to sort and answer, inspiration may come from the excitement of finding something pleasant in the pile of mail.

When looking for inspiration, look for the big picture and think long-range.

 

On the surface, it would seem that one would only be inspired to do pleasurable things. The problem is that many of the tasks we must do are far from pleasurable. This means in order to take action now, we must find inspiration to do things we don’t want to do. If you are an entrepreneur with a small business, dealing with rude, nasty clients is unpleasant and something one would not look forward to doing. That same entrepreneur would not look forward to cleaning her office carpet after a client threw up all over it. Yet both those things must get done.

One way to find inspiration to do tasks that are unpleasant of that we simply don’t want to do is to think of the big picture and to look at things long-range. We may never want to deal with the rude, unpleasant customer, but we do want the payment that person will give us at the end of the interaction. If we look at the big picture and think long-range, we can find the inspiration we need to take action now and get done what needs doing. Similarly, when it comes to the dirty carpet, most people do not enjoy handling vomit. Most people do enjoy a clean fresh work space. Therefore, when it comes to cleaning the vomit, we do not find inspiration in the task itself, but in the results of the task.

  • I'm constantly inspired! I think you're right, that everyone finds it in different places. I think positive people are really inspiring!

  • Yes, I certainly need more inspiration to take action. I think my future goals of owning a larger house motivates, and inspires me to work harder.

  • Not always easy to see the bigger picture but it's worth it when you can. Something I have to remind myself of all the time.

  • Making a difference and fighting against social injustice is what truly inspires me these days. I want to make this world better for my children.

  • I love the tip to find something inspirational in everything on our to do list! I always have lots on my list and have noticed that some get pushed from one day to the next to the next. I'll have to try this so I actually get them done :)

  • I think keeping that end goal in mind is the best form of inspiration! It keeps all the annoyances and frustration totally in check. ;)

  • I get inspired to clean, out of no where. I mean completely gut something and purge, rearrange and completely redo it. I hate to clean, but when I do something like this it lasts a long time.

  • This is exactly what I needed today. I'm trying to new venture in today's one of those days that I feel like just throwing in the towel but I know with work that it will be a great way to go.

  • Great way to look at it ... sometimes things have to get done even when we really don't want to go near it. TAN :)

  • Taking immediate action is something I have to face on a day-to-day basis. Sometimes, it's easy to lose sight of our overall inspirations, but at the end of it all, feeling a sense of accomplishment has me procrastinating less and less.
