Motivation & Inspiration

0

Motivation by and through fear and hate is unproductive and shallow. The results are very short lasting and often destructive or counterproductive. Motivation through caring, concern, and love is proactive, deep and long lasting.

The same hold true for inspiration. Inspiration through fiery rhetoric and loud bombastic proclamations stifles inspiration. The emotional letdown afterward is like the sugar low after eating a bunch of candy. True inspiration comes from depth and passion, not emotion. It is meaningful and actionable.

As a coach looking to lead look closely at how you motivate and inspire, in fact look closely at where you seek your motivation and inspiration.
