Find Something or Someone to Inspire You
Have you noticed on your way to work, someone takes the last seat on the train, or they cut in front of you when you are driving. Perhaps you find yourself dealing with Jobs Worth who seems to enjoy the game of blocking everything you are trying to achieve.
We are very good at spotting the things that wind us up. For some it has become a bit of a sport – something to keep them occupied on the journey in. A way of letting off steam. Yet, as addicted as we are to being negative about others, it doesn’t actually do us many favours, apart from a brief injection of energy and excitement.
If you really want to get into the zone and find the fun in your work, take up a different sport. Look instead for inspiration. On your train journey, see if you can spot something or someone who inspires you. Anyone or anything at all. It could be completely unrelated to your life and situation. But make it your quest to find inspiration. If the last seat is taken, you will barely notice, so focused are you on looking for what might inspire you. If someone drives in front of you, then pull back a little and let them through, because you have just seen an apple tree that you haven’t noticed before, growing bravely and rather incongruently by the side of the road and you are inspired.
Find something or someone to inspire you daily and before long, it will become such a source of fun and excitement, that you’ll be hooked.
