Inspiration… What is that again?
Inspiration is a fickle thing, it can come and go without you having much of a say in the matter. One moment you are working, feeling energized and knowing exactly what you want and why you are doing it. But then, a few minutes later all that energy is lost, gone who knows where and suddenly you are questioning why you even started this to begin with.
This applies doubly so to entrepreneurs, who more often than not thrive on inspiration and hard work to stay motivated to reach their goals, which at times can seem nearly impossible to reach. Without inspiration, the opportunities don’t look nearly as appealing as before, and it can be impossible to find the motivation to keep going.
There is hope!
Luckily, there are many ways find your inspiration again, for example going for a walk, taking a break or watching a good movie. This last one can instantaneously make a massive difference and help you find your motivation in no time.
While movies usually don’t paint the most realistic picture, everybody can recognize at least some aspects that they have ran into themselves while working. This allows you to really identify yourself with certain characters, making you much more invested in the story, and in turn it can show you many inspirational thing you may not necessarily notice from your own direct perspective.
