6 steps to regain Inspiration

Sometimes Inspiration hides way and it’s hard to find.  It’s a normal
process of life itself.  Nothing is static in life.  I put a few
steps that usually help me find mine most of the time.   I hope it’s
helpful to you too.

Inspiration comes from a greater force.  I believe it is a positive
response to our actions and thoughts.  Therefore if you want to regain
inspiration the first thing to do is to drop any resentment or anger inside
you.  It’s impossible to live a positive and inspiring life with a
negative and resented mind.

It’s said and said many times but nothing more certain than
the fact that nobody has an interrupted perfect life. Period!  So, learn
to accept the ups and downs in life and start appreciating the simplest
things.  Instead of complaining about how horrible the traffic is, thank
God that you are able to drive a car and do things on your own.  There are
millions of people who for one reason or another don’t have the physical
freedom to get up their beds and do things by themselves.  Apply this
comparison technique to your life and you’ll soon realize that everyone of us
is blessed in extraordinary ways.  
Inspiration diverts when
routine or monotony gets in the way.  Do something that is completely out
of your routine one day.  For instance, why not having your breakfast at a
coffee shop instead of having it at home like every other day.  Go out
earlier, sit at a coffee shop, grab a newspaper and read it while there, go for
a brisk walk and breath in the fresh morning air. Again, appreciate the fact
that you are breathing.  
Don’t seek it, don’t rush to
grab a hold of inspiration, don’t force it.  It’s Murphy’s law.  The
more you want something, the more it gets farther away.  Have you noticed
what happens when you are waiting for a call or email?  It doesn’t come
until you step aside and engage your interest in something else and forget
about it.  Unplug yourself from the frenzies of the media and start a new
book, take a gym class, or go shopping.  By the time you notice, you’ll be
so inspired that you will be spreading it around you.  
Procrastination is another obstacle to an inspiring
life.  Start making a list of the things you’ve been postponing and start
with the simplest one.  Send that email out and don’t focus on receiving a
positive response.  If you happened to get a positive one, great! 
But, It’s not about always getting what you want, it’s about dealing with the
negative and positive in a positive manner and most importantly it’s about
moving forward and taking the next step. 
Being inspired requires a
connection between our minds and hearts.  Forget about your goals and
accomplishments for a day or two.  In another words forget about
yourself.  Tell ego to go away for a day or two and focus on others. 
Volunteer at a place where your soul moves, where your tears surprise you at
any moment.  When you give without expecting anything in return, a feeling
of elation comes in your life and inspiration and fulfillment follows. 
I want to share with you this words of wisdom that I
received from The Kabbalah Center. 
If you seek the bad, you’ll
find it.
If you seek the good, you’ll
find it.
We always have in front of us
an choice between two realities.  Positive and Negative.

The reality in which we invest our energy in is the one we
exist in.
