It is said that inspiration doesn’t last when it comes from the outside, however when it comes from the inside, it can be all the force you need to succeed in life.
I don’t quite understand the outside / inside concept in the former saying. Personally, more often than not I have found inspiration in external situations – in a conversation with a friend or simply observing some people. Sometimes, it lasted only for a fleeting moment. But the times that it struck a chord with me, it left a lasting impression. I think we are impacted by what we choose to internalize – what we reflect on and process. That is the kind of inspiration that has the power to light a fire inside us, and become a positive force in our life. Having said that, I don’t mean to generalize this. I can only speak for myself. 🙂
I would love to hear from you. Do you feel that inspiration is external? Or do you find it within you? What is your current favorite quote? Do you feel that inspirational quotes work?
