This is taken from an article I wrote on inspiration vs motivation for national publication and I thought you would enjoy it as well. Especially if you want things to go easier and smoother and faster for you.
Inspiration and motivation, the difference between Power and Force determines how hard you work to get what you really want or if you even get it at all. Have you ever heard the phrase, “That inspires me” or “that motivates me”? What is the difference and does it make a difference in whether or not you get what you want out of life?
Many people confuse the two and think they mean or represent the same thing. However, they are two different things generated in two opposite ways. Both of these trigger the power of intention inside you; however they do it in two different ways which make all the difference in the world as to the results you get and how easy or hard, fast or slow or if you even get the results you want.
Do you want to be pushed or would you like to be carried to the joyful pleasing results you are after? Do you want to have to keep artificially creating, i.e. forcing your power of intention or would you rather enjoy the pleasure of it naturally flowing from you and through you and even arranging external situations and circumstances in ways where you do less and get more accomplished?
That’s the difference between the power that comes from inspiration and the force of motivation.
- …is self generating
- …is natural
- …naturally flows out of you
- …requires little effort
- …directs your focus,
- …carries you
- …must be generated by someone other than you
- …not as natural
- …has to be constantly feed externally or internally
- …requires a lot of effort
- …requires focus on motivation to stay motivated
- …pushes you
It is a question of am I going to depend on others which gives me weak personal power or am I going to look within where all my power is generated?
Forcing something is a lot harder than having the power to let things flow, especially when you have to depend on others for the energy. Both inspiration and motivation are forms of energy that move us and can be used to get us where we want to be and to have the things we want to have.
Again the question is, “Do you want to be pushed or would you like to be carried to the joyful pleasing results you are after?” The choice is always yours now that you know there is a difference.
