Where Inspiration Comes From 

Inspiration is often considered a mystical entity that strikes us only after consuming hours of books, podcasts, or videos.

But here’s the truth I’ve discovered: Inspiration comes from creating, not from consuming.

Allow me to tell you a story that illustrates this point.

In my quest for inspiration, I found myself buried under a mountain of books, articles, and courses.

The more I consumed, the more lost and uninspired I felt.

Then one day, I decided to put everything aside and simply start doodling on a blank page.

It was a free, random, creative act.

But as I doodled, ideas began to flow.

I discovered that by doing something literally freeing and creative, such as randomly doodling or engaging in creative writing, my mind opened up to new possibilities.

I started to find inspiration for my projects, my writing, and my life.

It was a breakthrough moment for me, one that taught me the true essence of inspiration.

It wasn’t about consuming more; it was about creating more.

So if you find yourself stuck, yearning for inspiration, don’t look for it in another book or video.

Look for it in your own creative expression.

Doodle, write, paint, or build something.

Watch as inspiration flows naturally from your creative efforts.

Now, tell me, what will you create today to spark your inspiration?
