There are times you feel downcast and dejected to a point where you just want to give up. It is life and there is a phase for everything. The phase for excitement and that for sadness. Your ability to handle the later makes you different from every other person. So, before you give up because of lack of inspiration or motivation, here is our suggestion of excellent places you can find motivation and rediscover your self-worth:
Your family can be an important source of stress at times but also a major source of strength. What you consider family is likely the group of people that know you best — that cherish you, that you cherish in return. At the end of the day, your family is there to support you throughout your journey and to succeed, and that is inspiring. Do not isolate them when you are facing challenges. Share with them and you will get one or two good advice.
Humans seem destined to create – to channel their passions into things you can see, hear, and feel. Some would argue that the purpose of art is to inspire – to inspire action or contemplation. Each of us responds to art in different ways, which is truly the beauty of art. When was the last time you went to your local museum or high school play?
Teachers & Mentors
A great teacher works not only to create fascinating and timely curriculum aimed at teaching you critical thinking skills but also to change you and help you develop a sense of purpose. You might not remember those ideas or facts your teachers taught you, but you will remember those experiences that made you feel inspired. It is the same with mentors.
People who overcome adversity
Everyone loves a good underdog story, so when you are feeling uninspired, revisit your favourite. Take the time to reflect on the adversity in your life; we’ve all faced challenges and grown from them. What is something you have overcome to get to where you are?
Making a difference
It is inspiring and empowering to feel like you can change aspects of your world for the better. Think about the things you want to change, the issues you care about and look for organisations or thought leaders working to address these issues. Follow these organisations on social media and consider supporting their work through donations or by volunteering.
