Motivation and inspiration- two terms that determine your destiny. You hear many people speak about how motivated they are. Some tell you they need some inspiration. That they went to listen to public speakers, they read a book, or attended some religious session searching for some inspiration. These two terms determine your success of failure in life. People say that successful people are motivated. The great artists, great men of old, or those who break all societal limitations become an inspiration to us all. Is motivation what lies in between all these great feats? Is it inspiration that makes things happen?
All motivation comes from the reasons we have for doing something. If you don’t have a reason to do something you won’t do it. This is what creates the 4 different types of motivation.
There is so much knowledge that a home based business owner has to master and learn. He can be overwhelmed by that. He might not have a plan and priorities. By taking small steps every day he will not be motivated daily to keep on taking action and to work towards his goal. He will lose interest.
Unfortunately, look at my magazine is much more heralded than imagination when it comes to the writing process. Personally, I had rather have fire and need to search for a tinder box, than to have a pile of wood (wet wood perhaps?) and no spark or flame.
I flex my smile muscle many times a day, even when I don’t feel like smiling. Why? It helps to get me into a confident state of mind. It is also scientifically proven to work.

Here’s a good tip: The next time a problem seems so big and scary that it threatens to swallow you up, fight it with knowledge. Get on the Internet and do research. Slay that dragon by learning its loopholes, it weaknesses and shortcuts. It might help to believe in the powers of the Universal Law of Attraction which draws opportunities toward you just the way you specify to, and in the right intensity as you sought after.
Motivation comes from what we tell ourselves about any goal. Human behavior is goal oriented. Staying motivated is a thought away. If you need motivation to accomplish a task today, change what you think about the task.
What I really end up with is a list of questions which are being asked in that category. All it takes is a bit of manipulation. If I’ve started with the categories, I’ll look down the list of topics and ask the journalists’ six “W”s. Eventually, I’ll find one that interests me. Typically, it will only be a phrase. So I’ll need to expand on it slightly. I can do that by adding one of the questions and searching once again. Alternatively, I’ll add a term. For example, Business strategy might lead to planning a trip. I could then add a word such as camping. And voila — I have my inspiration.
