Motivated or Inspired – What’s the difference?

Do you try to motivate people at work.. motivate your family.. your kids.. your friends..?

What a difference it would make to inspire them.. How do you inspire those around you..?

Do you try to motivate for selfish reasons.. or do you inspire for the good of all of you..?

It’s quite a subtle difference at first glance.. But what a world of difference it is in practice.

Watch out for it during this week.. see what the difference is between motivating and inspiring..

..and watch out for the difference both in response and inside your heart.

It’s always good to take a breather.. stand back and take a fresh look once again.

I’d love to simply inspire my kids.. but motivate them is more of what I do, so it’s going to be fun considering inspiration.

Isn’t just looking words up in a dictionary a wonderful little exercise for seeing anew!

Do you work on your Strengths..

Some people concentrate on working on their weaknesses and miss out on a whole new level of living. It has been said that whatever you focus on you get more of. So if you are focusing on ‘a lack of something’ what are you going to get? Are you going to get more lack, more friction, more stress and more strain?
Now I’m not saying that you should ignore areas that can be improved upon but our time and attention could be prioritised far more efficiently. Usually what we are strong in is an area we naturally enjoy. An areas we naturally have a god given aptitude for.
Sadly we can miss out on this. Focusing on our strengths is where our growth and natural talents will spring and catapult forth. It is an interesting area to become aware of.
An interesting area to observe. But more importantly an area to act up on.
