Finding the right inspiration to diet and get into better shape will influence much more than just the extent of your waistline – it will be an investment into a healthier and happier life. Your health and fitness really influences every aspect of your life, from your self-confidence to your relationships with other people, to your job prospects, to your everyday finances.

I think one of the most common things that crafters turn to for inspiration is photography. Turn on the radio, grab your iPod, or put in your favorite CD, turn up the volume and the inspiration just tends to flow right in. Unfortunately, it’s not always that easy to find the creative forces inside yourself. Sometimes you need an extra push. Where do you go then?

When inspiration really starts to flow. Usually it flows so fast that you can’t keep up. You will feel pulled or compelled to do several things at once. You will feel excited and energized, an ‘I can’t wait to..” feeling will come over you.

Failures are parts of life. If ever you fall, do not feel too bad and beat yourself up. Acknowledge failure; assess what impact those failures have done in your life and take action to stand up once again.

The dictionary defines inspiration as “stimulation for the human mind to creative thought or to the making of art”. The ancient Greeks personified this idea into a muse, but a more modern idea of inspiration is things that you like or things that attract your attention and stay with you.

There is not better way to get inspired than going to God in quiet supplication and patiently waiting for his gentle words of inspiration. When asked about his source of inspiration, musical legend Bob Marley once declared: “The Almighty God has remained my source of inspiration”. These inspirations can come in form of dreams, visions or trance.

Draw your inspiration from things that will outlast you. Live as if you are already dead and gone because you are dying every day. Choose to live the higher life. Decide today that you will live for higher things. They will not only be an inspiration for you will inspire others. The highest inspiration you can use for your life is to live so as to make the lives of other in the world better. You will keep going if you know you are doing it for someone else. You will keep going if you know you are doing it for others.
