How inspiration and confidence lay the path to success
Published on December 26, 2011 by Melanie A. Greenberg, Ph.D. in The Mindful Self-Express
As the end of the year approaches, this is a perfect time to take stock of our lives. It is extremely helpful at this time to reflect on the achievements of the past year, congratulating ourselves for both personal growth and goals met, and revising our goals for the new year. Taking a break from our daily routines and nourishing ourselves with food, family, and good company helps us to be re-motivated and re-inspired with fresh vision and energy. Inspiration has been defined as “The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.” Put more simply, inspiration is a creative force that fills us with passion, purpose, and determination to accomplish a particular goal or embody a particular quality or value in our lives.
Inspiration is a quality of leadership and entrepreneurial endeavors; the guiding force that allows us to navigate the stormy seas of life, never taking our eyes off the desired endpoints. Many of the great philosophers of our time have attempted to define what it is to be inspired, committed, and creative in the pursuit of what we value or what is most meaningful to us. So, join me on an inspirational journey, using their wise words to guide your transition to a new year and a wiser, better way of being in the world.
