There is a saying by Rudyard Kipling – “When your Daemon is in charge, do not try to think consciously. Drift, wait, and obey.” If we were to interpret it, it could be taken to understand how, in our modern world, we are all obsessed with measuring our abilities and talents. And it is because of these very things that we end up losing sight of how important it is to have inspiration in our lives.
We might hear the word inspiration our whole lives, but do we understand its value in honing our creative skills and empowering us to do things we never thought we could do so?
Inspiration is significant in opening us up to new opportunities and possibilities that transcend ordinary limitations and experiences while transforming how we perceive our capabilities. Moreover, inspiration tends to have three qualities; the first one is that inspiration can be evoked without intention. Second, inspiration goes beyond our self-serving desires and limitations. And third, motivation involves a lot of motivational approaches that help an individual adequately express their visions or ideas.
However, we must remember that inspiration should be considered differently than a positive effect. To be affected by inspiration, you need high levels of positive energy and task involvement without the negative impact.
Some people also think of inspiration as a base for creativity. You may have noticed that inspired people view themselves as more creative individuals. Many inventors that hold patents have reported that they are more frequently inspired and on a more intense level than those who do not contain any patents.
Consequently, inspiration can drive our progress toward goals. There was a recent study conducted by Marina Milyavskaya and her other colleagues where they reported three goals that they had to finish throughout the semester. After three months of progress, they said their results, where it was found that the ones that had scored higher on the inspiration scale had shown higher goal progress and had even been inspired to write even more goals. Consequently, it shows that the more inspired you are, the more likely you are to get more inspired ideas.
You can also find a few people who understand the value of inspiration and have used it in their daily lives to create unique future goals that have helped them reach higher places within the professional sector.
Consider Lorenzo DeStefano, considered one of the best playwrights, screenwriters, novelists, producers, directors, and photographers all over the globe.
His professional years began at the post-production facilities of National Geographic Films in Hollywood – eventually leading to the U.S and U.K Theater. In a place filled with inspiration around him, he was able to harness his love for writing. He was driven with creativity to write fiction and non-fiction, original screenplays, and many more written works that have been highly acclaimed.
Plus, he even ventured into the fields of directed network series, documentaries, and narrative films – some of his motion picture film editing works include “Dreamscape,” “The Blue Lagoon,” “The Killing Time,” “Winners Take All” – where he also found much success in his overall creative career.
