The road to happiness may be quick if you are lucky and execute perfectly, however for many it’s a long journey of ups and downs. From step 3, you understood the importance of having professional associates and contacts around you in the similar industry to bounce your original ideas of. You need to recognize the importance of having a team of encouraging people who can keep you accountable and focused on reaching the goals they know you really want to accomplish. Nobody needs to be an island if it can be prevented. The only reason not to have a strong support network is if you find it hard to trust people or think you are associating with people who don’t have your best interests at heart. In that case you may have bigger problems, but either way you should take steps to build a strong core of those you can count on. First develop a personal support group, you can start with your friends that have known you the longest. Those that you know really care for you. The ones that you know are always brutally honest with you no matter the circumstances. If you have a family, consider others outside of your spouse and immediate family.

Did you strive to excel in school because of your parents? Did a particular teacher inspire you to work harder in a particular subject? Perhaps in your college or early career, did some project or some cause inspire you to dedicate time and hard efforts to make it happen. What previously inspired you to take action and why then. What brought you into life per se? Inspiration deals with the concept of breathing life into something. What provoked you to breathe life into something before? Do you ever use your right brain to imagine worldly or big vision aspirations with your life? What would it take to inspire you to give it your all chasing your dreams? Firstly, do you truly believe that you can be anything in this world you aspire to be. If not, why not, if so, what would make you take the necessary steps to want to get there.

The voice

Monday, May 7, 2012

Inspiration plays a determinant role in achieving life success. Evaluate what internal factors within you fuel your need to succeed. Do you have a voice inside you urging you forward to reach your goals, a divine calling as it’s known in some circles? What do your innermost and gut feelings signal to you? What drives you from within to do whatever it takes to achieve your goals? Also consider some external inspirational sources. Who are the inspirational figures in your life.? Why do you think they inspire you? What inspires you to fulfill your wildest dreams? Carefully think for a few moments about your personal thoughts on the difference between desire and inspiration. Desire conveys a real need and a want to get something done. It signals taking actionable steps to go out and get what you desire. Desire deals with a specific thing that you wish to attain, some specific target. In contrast, one could picture inspiration as more theoretical, idealistic or divine. Inspiration can work with the subconscious mind and create the perception while you could make the case that desire is the vehicle to actualize it and deliver the results.
