Whenever I’m feeling uninspired (yes, it happens,) it’s hard to stay focused and excited on your business. Feeling uninspired can sometimes be crippling – I’ve had weeks where I felt like the work I was putting out into the world was lackluster. I felt like I had lost “it” – that passion, that excitement, that ability to create something that would capture people’s interest.

When that happens, I have two ways to bring the inspiration back:

Drop everything and do something totally different.

This is easier said than done, because you want to focus on your business and keep trucking along. However, sometimes, it’s best to take a step back and just think about anything BUT the business.For example, when I can’t figure out what I’m going to make next for the blog, I’ll spend hours “brainstorming” and come up with nothing I love – due to that lack of inspiration.

To fix this, I’ll get up, put my shoes and jacket on and go for a 20 minute walk. I’ll grab a book and head to a coffee shop and read for an hour. I’ll go to the gym and clear my head for 45 minutes. And sometimes, if the inspirational rut is that bad, I’ll take the day off and do something to relax my mind. Sure enough, the next day (or alter that day,) the inspiration is back and better than ever.

Be happy with what you have while you work for what you want. via @inspiralized #inspiralizedboss Click To Tweet

Find inspiration from quotes and stories

Honestly, just looking at an inspirational phrase and harnessing the message that it’s sending can be transformational. Right now, my favorite quote is this:

This quote is teaching me gratitude right now, which helps keep the inspiration flowing. To find your own quotes that inspire you, just do a simple search on Google for “inspirational quotes” or on Pinterest, or even scroll through the Instagram hashtag #quote – you’ll find some great quotes!

Along the same lines, I like to read about other people’s success stories – mostly all of them are filled with situations of inspiration deficits and how they overcame them. Some of my favorite websites to peruse for these types of features include:

How do you recover from an inspiration rut?

Thank you for tuning in, and I hope you learned something new from this week’s #InspiralizedBoss post.

  1. Thanks, Ali. YOU are an inspiration for my health and life journey!

  2. Since I love my spiralizer; even though broken, I can still use it. To be inspired I spiralize; spiralize; spiralize. It is quick to use and clean. Now that I have information on other organic only veggies; I am going to be spiralizing ; spiralizing; spiralizing away. Your information is truly inspiring. Thank you.
