Inspiration vs Motivation

Good afternoon all!

The weekend is almost here. So while you make your weekend workout plans here is some food for thought. What is the difference between inspiration and motivation? Inspiration and motivation are often thought to mean the same thing. However, they are two different things.

Inspiration is an internal force. It is found within. It is for that reason that it can stay with us and last for a long time. The interesting thing about inspiration is it can strike at any moment and from anywhere. A person could suddenly inspiration for their next project just by cleaning something they spilt on the floor.

Motivation is a different because it is an external force. Once inspiration hits we spring into action. Motivation is deliberate. It’s going from thinking, “Ok, I’m going to try this.” to “Hey, I’m doing it!”. However, motivation can be short-lived. The trick is to keep trying.

Both inspiration and motivation can be applied to your life daily.

Until next time, keep up the good work!
