What is your Why?
I recently attended a conference and some of the content was right on target for me. I have been talking about finding the key to what’s next in your journey should be focused on finding and tapping into your passion to live life on purpose. What may help this message resonate for you is defining the difference between motivation and inspiration.
Jim Howard, a conference speaker and coincidentally the guiding voice behind finalizing my book title and cover design, stated the comparison of motivation and inspiration quite succinctly and simplistically.
Motivation is a short-term effect to get you past the moment. It usually comes from an external push.
Inspiration keeps you going, is your internal pull that is forever present.
Discover your inspiration and you will know your ‘Why’ without question. Put inspiration in all you do.
Oh yea…. sometimes you need to step back and take a breath. I have been AWOL for a couple of months. My fault, the-day-to-day distractions and intensity of getting a book published put writing for the blog on hold. However, there are some parallels that emerged during the hiatus.
The Wealthy Teacher book will be published by Morgan James Publishing of NYC. Wooo hooo. Now the real work begins, I can really see my light, but I also want to help all of the educators facing a job loss see their light at the end of that tunnel. They are asking what’s next, where do I go, what do I do? I can help and so can you!
My goal is to give as many educators as possible a book free or for S&H cost only. They will then recognize that someone understands their plight and feelings. That I walked in their shoes and know that with a sound plan that taps into what really drives them, their passion, that they can create their own light beam.
