Looking for inspiration?

It has happened to each one of us, at least once in our life. You come home from work and you feel like what you are doing is not enough to nurture your mind. You feel like a green meadow waiting for the most beautiful flowers to grow. In other words, you are waiting for inspiration, to start an activity that you enjoy doing, that makes you feel happy and gratified.

This activity I have decided to call it the “click moment”.

The click moment is about what is meaningful to you, what makes you smile and feel satisfied. It can be whatever: playing a musical instrument, building something, joining a sport or an art club, gardening, going for a bike ride, etc.

Everyone has his or her click moment waiting behind the corner to be discovered. Maybe you are too busy to look for it or, perhaps, (you will have to admit it) you are just a bit lazy and lately, you have relied a bit too much on your couch and on scrolling your Facebook account. If this is the case then…Stop! Don’t do it! That’s the first step towards failure when searching for something to do that makes you feel happy and gratified! Looking at other’s people holiday pictures won’t probably give you any stimulating input.

Resisting the urge to grab your phone when bored, it’s crucial to start your journey across inspiration. But what comes next? How do we concretely find our click moment?

In my experience, there are some key activities we can carry out when looking for it:

• Surround yourself with interesting people.

• Challenge yourself with something you have never done before

• Listen to people who love you

• Listen yourself

Let’s take a deeper look at them:

Now it’s your turn, put your phone or computer aside, start optimizing your free time and let the inspiration process begin!
