2. the object of a person's ambition or effort; an aim or desired result.
Your favorite player of all time inspires you. A successful person in your line of work inspires you. A friend or family member who is dependable and always on time inspires you. We all have others who we look to for inspiration. It's natural and very healthy to be inspired. But, these inspiring figures have no say in what we can do for ourselves. What we're looking for is motivation. The hard part about motivation is that it can only come from within. How do we start that fire within ourselves that drives us to greatness? How do we find the strength to keep going when it's so much easier to quit?
Set a goal. Challenging but attainable with a time domain. Achieve that goal.
Put yourself in an environment that will give you all the tools you need to achieve your goal. Surround yourself with people who believe in you and can help you achieve your goal and will help you celebrate your achievement. Truly believe in your goal and KNOW that you will get there.
Don't just spin your wheels and do the daily monotonous routine. Add enthusiasm and ambition to your life and get out of your comfort zone a little. You won't regret it.
Drive. All. The. Way.
