So much of the focus in the personal development health space seems to be on motivation these days: “get motivated” “push harder” and “stop procrastinating.” And while I understand the intention here, I am far more interested in INSPIRATION. If you don’t feel inspired it is going to be a lot harder to take action. Perhaps your lack of desire to take action isn’t fear or laziness; perhaps it is a sign that you are not on the best path for you. When you are inspired and passionate it moves you. There is less forcing and pushing and a lot more enthusiasm.

I just learned that the route of the word enthusiasm come from the Greek word ἐνθουσιασμός meaning “possessed by [a] god’s essence”

How beautiful is that? I love the idea that enthusiasm signifies “God in us.” It speaks to something I think about often which is how can I know when I am on the “right path.” There is a lot of noise out there, so many shinny objects and promises. I can get distracted, unclear and confused and begin to doubt myself. But when I stay with what lights me up, what I am enthused about, not only am I most joyful, but I am also most useful.

So yes, look at what might be holding you back, question your fear, challenge yourself to do better and be better, face your limiting beliefs and behaviors, but don’t forget to make sure that what you are trying to achieve is what truly matters to you. Because when you are clear here, there is nothing that can stop you.
