Do YOU have the courage to be inspired ?

Written by 
{pp}Have you ever had an idea, that you thought was brilliant ? but never took action ‘cos someone said it would not work. Only to discover someone else had the same idea, ran with it and now is able to take holidays to the moon for fun. Does this sound like you? Somewhere in the deep recesses of your own mind do you regret not following through? Well you are not the only one, so why do we do this to ourselves?

The truth is that we did not have the courage to follow our heart, our passion. Courage? you may say, I do not need courage to have ideas.

The truth of the matter is that there are 3 things that we need in order to follow through with an idea to become a reality. The 3 things needed are, a thought, Inspiration and motivation.
We have hundreds and thousands of thoughts everyday, some convert to ideas, others are strewn into the ether to be forgotten. From that idea that we did not throw away, we become aware of things that are need to go forth and create, this is inspiration at work. Our minds begin weaving a tapestry of options that could transform our idea into something worthwhile and spectacular.
It is at this point we become passionate about our idea and excited about the boundless potential, our cup overfloweth with information, specifications and direction.

We eat, sleep, think and dream our idea, we become one with this tapestry that is being spun on the loom of our own mind. Our sense of self becomes invigorated and we feel that all is well, it is at this point and ALWAYS at this point, we as humans have the need to voice our idea to a fellow colleague, friend, parent, sibling or partner.

We find the right moment, the right time, and start the conversation with, “ I have been thinking, and have come up with this idea, that I would like to share with you” and you begin explaining the elaborate idea and how it has manifested into a almost certain reality. We go to great depths to explain, draw and show every facet of our idea, the inspiration and energy flows through us as we weave the golden threads of creativity.

There is a pause and the end as you ask the question “so what do you think ?” and sure enough the chosen sounding board beings to rip every thread of your inspired idea, from the loom tossing it to the ground like a rag. You blink, swallow and in the recesses of your mind you extinguish the final ember of inspiration, as you do so your self-esteem and passion is extinguished.
And there we have the process of our inspired thought - flatlined. So I ask you again, Do you have the courage to be inspired? The process is a given, when we begin there is no stopping us, the question is why do we feel the necessity at the final stage to take all the personal power we have mustered, and hand it over to someone else to do with as they see fit.

We do this out of fear, fear of what people may say, what they may think. Self-sabotaging thoughts kick in like “what if I fail, what will people say ?” So we ask for confirmation from an outsider who has no concept of what you have created in your minds eye. And so it is unfortunately at this point our inspired idea and self esteem, slips slowly into the ether to be forgotten forever.

The only way to fix this is to change our way of thinking, during the passion and vitality stage of our idea, it is important that we write down how we are feeling about our idea, why it came about? Where are we heading with this inspiration and what we would like to achieve? What is keeping you motivated? Once you have answered these questions it is the next step that is the most vital, and that is to say to yourself in the mirror.

“I hereby declare to myself that I have the courage to follow this to completion, only I have the whole concept in my minds eye, and even though I may be challenged along the way, I am the only one with the power to discard such great inspiration if I so choose.”

It is only at this time should you share your idea, as you will be standing firmly in your own personal power. You will be the creator. By doing this you will be less likely to give your power away to someone else and allow your idea to die like and ember.

Remember there is no such thing as a failed idea, all ideas are merely prototypes. The Wright brothers never stopped when they fell from the sky trying to fly. You have the courage to be inspired, go forth and weave your golden threads.
