Finding your inspiration can be challenging, especially when you’re always trying to be the best version of yourself. You might feel tired at times of this constant desire to become even better, but in reality, you shouldn’t be. All of us should be capable of realising that we evolve anyway and it should be an opportunity for all of us to enjoy the process, without being too worried when we’re hitting the milestones. I’ve been there and today, I really hope to make a difference in how you seek your inspiration in life and how you enjoy moving. Let’s break down the 5 ways to find your inspiration in life and keep moving.
Get inspired by reading topics that keep you moving
Reading can tremendously inspire you, if you read the right books for you. I usually read personal development books, emotional intelligence and inspiring business stories. Some books get me so pumped out than I love reading them in the morning for that extra energy boost (alongside my coffee drank straight from my Starbucks bottle on the tube). Find topics that inspire you and open up your mind! As a recommendation, I will put together the books that keep me moving in 2020:
- Obviously Awesome: How to Nail Product Positioning so Customers Get It, Buy It, Love It by April Dunford:
- How to be a Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso (founder of NastyGal). Find it here:
The 100-Year Life: Living and Working in an Age of Longevity by Lynda Gratton:
Focus on your side hustle and watch it grow
Whatever that you’re passionate about outside work, make sure you focus on it. Develop a hustle out of it and make your own money on the side. It’s so rewarding to know that thanks to your native talent you earned something even though it’s a very small amount to begin with. Think about it, the opportunities are endless. Your motivation for your side hustle will never end because the rewards are immense. This passion inside of you will keep you moving.
There are many things you can do, but choose one that you know inside of you that you can maintain. You might like interior design like me, but actually love creating clothes, for example. Sew until you become the expert you want to be, find the time you need for your passion and constantly inspire yourself from the projects you have.
Focus on you more than you focus on others
I say this in a very nice way, but focusing on you it’s more important than focusing on other people’s lives. One thing I understood in life is that we’re all on different journeys. Some people get to marry the love of their life while they’re young, some decide not to have kids, some start their own businesses and so on. They all do it for the right reasons for them. You shouldn’t be feeling in any way about other people’s lives. I guess our way of comparing our journey to other people’s, comes from thinking that the grass is always greener on the other side. We all know it, it’s not like that. Focus on you always.
Do things that spark something in you
What small things make you happy? I love listening to music and signing on the street (sorry not sorry if you hear me in Chelsea one day). I like healthy eating and meditation. I love looking my best, so I also go to the gym although I won’t lie and say I enjoy it; I enjoy the results. When I do these things, I feel that I’m winning. Find your things that make you win and enjoy your life.
