This is best said in the words of Life Coach, Rasheed Ogunlaru:
“There are two powerful fuels, two forces: motivation and inspiration. To be motivated you need to know what your motives are.
Over time – and to sustain you through it – your motivation must become an inner energy; a ‘motor’ driving you forward, passionately, purposefully, wisely and compassionately… come what may, every day.
Inspiration is an outer – worldly – energy that you breathe and draw in. It may come from many places, faces, spaces and stages – right across the ages. It is where nature, spirit, science, mind and time meet, dance, play and speak. It keeps you outward facing and life embracing. But you must be open-minded and open-hearted to first let it in and then let it out again.
Together – blended, combined and re-entwined – motivation and inspiration bring connectivity, productivity, creativity and boundless possibilities that is not just ‘self’ serving but enriching to all humanity and societies…just as it should be.”
