Looking for motivation, inspiration, or a bit of both? Look no further than “inspirotivation.”
No, you didn’t read that wrong, you’re now a part of 1 of my favorite things—combining thoughts and words to create something new and impactful.
“Inspirotivation” is my latest creation: a combination of inspiration and motivation. What’s the difference? Think internal vs external stimuli. Inspiration stems from the internal forces that give you the ability to push yourself, whereas motivation is what you perceive around you that kicks your brain into gear to get things done.
Although many people consider these to be mutually exclusive, to me, it makes more sense to meld them. Depending on the situation you’re in, the inner feeling could be stronger, or the environmental factors and people surrounding you may take precedence. What if choosing one or the other, you take a bit of that inner strength and some of the external, and merge them into a self-empowering mantra? Congrats, you just became inspirotivated!
Inspiration and motivation aren’t all that different conceptually. Other professions blend them. For music lovers, this is how songs are created. For the visual artists out there, here’s where color blending starts. Take it on the athletic field, and this is where the real game begins—where offense and defense meet.
Yes, it’s a different concept, and no, the word doesn’t roll off the tongue, but finding a path of inspiration or winding through a motivational maze isn’t always an easy feat either. It’s not often that just 1 thing gets us up and moving, and determining what factors are important to us is hard. This is a process that evolves throughout our lives.
This linguistic journey has helped me define my own inspirotivation. To put it simply, I am inspirotivated by and for my family. I want to do and be my best because it’s what is needed. It’s what feels and what is right. I want to make a positive impact for change in my own life and in the lives of those around me.
What’s your inspirotivation? How can you use it to make your reality better? That isn’t something I or anyone else can answer for you, but I would love to hear your thoughts on the matter. Feel free to comment or share, and you may just find that you become someone’s inspirotivation in turn.
