Spiritual Inspiration Matters
What is your source of spiritual inspiration? What is the driving force that gets you to do what you do? How in touch are you with your spirituality? How important is it to you to connect with the drive that inspires you with spiritual motivation?
Are you the type who likes to make the most out of each day you experience, or do you simply plod along, going through the motions?
Whatever your answers happen to be to the questions just asked, this sums up who you are. If you’re happy with your answers and the direction you’ve taken and see no need to change it, great.
However, if you’re not so happy and feel there’s something missing, then there’s a strong bet you’re not as in touch with your spiritual self that you need to be in order to improve upon your situation.
Believe it or not, the more in touch you are with your spirit the more you will establish an understanding of who you really are and what really makes you tick. This is what truly establishes the key to unlock that one door that could be stopping you from moving forward.
In order to move forward in anything, whether it be a career path of choice or a personal improvement goal, you need the solid engine of a driving force to help you do that. Just like starting a vehicle, you need the right key in order to achieve this.
The Starting Key
Everybody has to start somewhere! The finish line cannot be reached if you don’t even bother getting out of the starting gate! In order to get into the race and move forward, you need to find the right key that works for you and simply roll with it. What you need to do is find what drives you as this is where your source of inspiration comes from.
So what is that key? Where can you find it? That key is your spirit and that’s already residing within you. All you need to do is get in touch with that and start the ignition to get moving. If you’re unsure how to go about that, then simply start by coming up with a list of what sparks your interest most. Is it your family? Is it your friends? How about your personal interests? What makes you raise an eyebrow and say “hey, this is interesting!”?
This list serves as your starting key. It’s what gives you a reason to turn that key, start the ignition, and get moving in a direction you want to go.
Control Your Speed
Now that you’ve started, what sort of pace do you want to go? Are you the classic tortoise that prefers a slow and steady pace, or are you the hare that puts the pedal to the metal? Regardless of what your answer happens to be if you and your spirit are not in sync with each other and you’ve encountered more problems than you care to admit then you need to find a method to better control your speed.
If you’ve always been the fast and furious type and it’s worked for you, great. If you’re not fatigued and can handle your speed, then don’t slow down for anyone’s account. Doing so will knock you off balance and that’s the last thing you want. A good balance that works for you is what helps you keep in control, and this is vital if you intend to keep moving forward.
If taking it easy is more your style and it’s worked for you, then don’t make adjustments simply because those around you seem to be breezing past you. How they go about their journey shouldn’t matter to you. The road you’re on is yours only, not theirs.
The more control you have over how you travel through your life’s journey, the less likely you will experience crash and burn moments that can really do some damage to your psyche.
Whenever moving forward with anything, the less dramatic impact you have that can send you off course the better. However, things do happen that are beyond even your control and this is where it’s essential you keep in touch with your spirit so that you don’t find yourself in a situation too critical for your liking. It’s vital you trust your gut instinct at all times as this is the insurance policy that will help you through even the most treacherous conditions you encounter. The gut won’t steer you wrong, so you need to learn to trust it.
Overthinking, and even caving into feelings about something is not trusting your gut instinct at all. This is a huge mistake method too many people make. If you’ve ever encountered situations where you’ve ignored your gut, odds are they could have been avoided if you had simply learned to let go and trust. Your mind is not an insurance policy worthy of your trust. Your mind is too easily influenced by distractions and will almost never be in sync with your gut.
Just like your mind, your heart isn’t quite as stable as it seems either. The heart is all too often influenced by a mind that hasn’t learned to discipline itself enough by simply listening to and trusting the gut.
The gut is where your spirit drives from. The more you listen to that, the stronger your spiritual insurance policy becomes. This will then cause both the mind and the heart to undergo the tune-ups they need in order to better fend off every form of hazardous conditions that threaten to come to your method.
If one expects anything to go well, no matter what it is, routine maintenance helps prevent potential disasters from happening. Being taken off guard due to some form of malfunction doesn’t just slow you down, it’s also discouraging.
Maintaining a healthy communication flow between your mind, body, heart, and soul is what makes your spirit thrive. A thriving spirit will always keep going like a finely tuned performance machine and that’s what you want. This is what helps you run the best possible race you can run, going from start to finish while embarking on your personal journey. The world is going to hurl one obstacle after another at you, causing you to go into defensive driving mode. There may be moments where you’ll have no choice but to take a detour, but should you do so please consult your spirit within as it really is the best road map you’ve got. Without it, you will never reach your ideal destination point and will get lost. If for some reason you feel the need to ask outside sources for direction, make sure you approach those who really do know the method. Approaching someone who pretends to know is always a threat, but if you’re truly in sync with your spirit, you will figure it out quickly enough that you need to find a better source to trust.
Finish What You’ve Started
From the moment you use the starting key to move forward with whatever it is you’ve set yourself to do, it’s up to you to control your own pace, as well as insure and maintain your driveability as much as possible. The road you’re on is yours alone and only you can travel it. The finish line that sits at the end of that road is the one only you can cross. Now, just because you’re in the driver’s seat doesn’t mean you can’t have any passengers or an audience. Allow them to tag along and definitely involve them if you know they can be of help to you. However, don’t let them distract you! It is you that’s behind the wheel, not them! They can help you stay on course for as long as there’s a clear line of communication of where you really want to go and how you want to get there.
In other words, drive and enjoy the ride! This is how you stay focused and finish the race!
