Are you inspired by anything? Is there something that makes you want to jump out of bed in the mornings or stay up late into the night, just so you can know more about it and become better at doing it? If not, then it’s time to become inspired! Optimists know that there’s more to life than just getting up, going to work, coming home to watch TV, then going to bed every day. They have something that inspires them to be the best version of themselves that they can be and keeps them focused on the good things in life.
Lately I’ve gotten hooked on Michael Hyatt’s podcasts. He focuses on leadership, and although I’m not currently in a leadership position, he has so much wisdom and good information, that I can’t help but be inspired to take over the world! 😉 I decided (in true librarian fashion) to go through them chronologically, and his first one about generating more blog traffic is fantastic and has inspired me to make changes in my blogging. The inspiration that I’m gaining from listening to him makes me excited, which in turn boosts my mood and makes me ignore the life stress I’ve got going on right now. Isn’t that a great feeling?
I challenge all of you reading to find something that inspires you and that you want to learn more about either as a hobby or a potential source of income someday. It may be tough to get started, but the inspired, happy feelings that you have while you’re immersing yourself in it will be well worth the work!
