Every one of us needs to be inspired to shoot photos at some time in our photographic journeys. Sometimes inspiration comes naturally while on other occasions it is just like writer’s block. So how can you get inspired? Can you create inspiration or must you just wait? Let’s take a look at some sources of inspiration.
First, don’t beat yourself up over having gone through the above cycle. The careers of most salespeople, marketers, executives, musicians, artists and everyone else who depend on energy and creativity are littered with many such cycles – it’s one of the reasons that motivation al resources and speakers are always in high demand as professionals rush back for their next fix. But it doesn’t have to be that way if you approach personal motivation the same way you do other challenges in your life.
I believe the fact that the real motivation of people is not being understood well enough in this industry by the gurus is one of the main reasons why so many people join but are not successful in making the big bucks that can be made with the programme.
Read an inspiring book. How long has it been since you’ve re-read a book that really moved you? Go grab one of your favorites off the shelf and read it again. The words on the pages won’t be different, but the reader will have changed since the last reading, and that often makes all the difference. I’ll bet you share this experience with me: during some of the most trying times in my life, I’ve had a book in my brief case or car that I could work away at reading, a few pages at a time, and it helped me draw the strength of look at my lives I needed to deal with the trouble of my days.
Once in a new surrounding with fresh scenes of inspiration be prepared to experiment and try new things. Use techniques you wouldn’t usually try and allow the ideas to flow freely. Linked to this is practise. Try something that appeals to you then keep practising until you start achieving what you had in mind. It’s the outside the box thinkers who come up with unique ideas because they aren’t afraid to experiment.
I believe that in the home based business industry this is not getting enough attention. People are losing interest and becoming demotivated because the emphasis in the industry is on the “self”; my lifestyle, my travel, the way I want to spend my time, I do want to earn big bucks fast.
However, don’t let your problems stop or hold you back. At the same time, don’t sweep your problems under the carpet. The key is to solve them without losing sight of your goals. Hence, the tools today will be great to help you smoothen the journey.
