If you’re having trouble getting inspired, it may be simply your choice of words. Earlier I wrote about the story we tell about ourselves – but today I want to introduce five action verbs that can help get you inspired and get you out of your rut.
We’ve all been stuck in that place where things just don’t seem to go forward. We have trouble getting motivated and our goals seem either out of reach, or too weak. In short, we are uninspired! Master motivator Tony Robbins tells us that it’s not that people are lazy, it’s that most people have weak, or as he puts it, impotent goals.
Some people think that you simply have to adopt the right attitude in order to improve your life. It’s not always that easy. It’s hard to set aggressive goals and get inspired to achieve them when your mindset is not right. If your mind is not ready to embrace more exciting goals, then change will be difficult and even small challenges become hard to conquer.
Instead of just “wishful positive thinking” I recommend using action to inspire yourself and create change. Do something! If you shake things up by taking action first, you’ll get your mind ready to create and pursue more exciting goals.
Below are 5 inspiring action verbs that you can use to shake things up and get yourself mentally ready to take on new challenges. If you use these techniques, even in small ways, you will naturally find yourself on the road to change. Change leads to bigger and better goals. Bigger and better goals lead to accepting greater challenges… and so on – as long as your keep with it.
Give to a charity, an individual in need, or simply a friend or relative. You don’t have to give something expensive or big. Just a show of appreciation will do, such as a card or a flower. Giving is an uplifting experience which frees your mind from thinking that there is not enough in the world. Giving teaches you that there is plenty to go around, and it will cause you to attract more good things in your life.
Learn a new language or a new dance. Learn about something you know nothing about, or learn to play a song on the piano or guitar. Learning something new develops your nervous system and makes you think in ways you’ve never thought before. I’ve created several fun online courses you’re welcome to explore.
Change your routine, take a different route to work, change your usual clothing style, your hair style, or change what you normally eat. Change begets change. If you want a big change, start by making a small change.
Participate in community activities, a sports team, or join a club. Participation requires social interaction and creativity, both of which will stimulate and inspire your creative mind.
Create a piece of art, write a short story (or even write a book – why not), make a bookshelf, or start a blog. Creating something (anything) stimulates all those dormant forces that allow change to enter your life. It doesn’t have to be perfect – you just have to start!
Each time you perform one of these inspiring actions, allow your attitude to catch up to your actions by taking a few minutes to feel good about it. Enjoy the creative process, knowing that what you are doing is good for you and those around you as well. Remember, though, nothing happens without taking action!
