The Creative Charge: Finding Motivation When Inspiration Escapes You

CreativityMorgan Vanek2 Comments

You may have noticed that it’s been awhile since my last post. I want to apologize for that, because I’m committed to providing quality content for my readers on a consistent basis. I hope that reading this blog adds something positive to your life, and it’s important for me to deliver on my commitment to you. 

But the truth is, I haven’t been feeling motivated lately. I’ve had a lot on my plate at my job, and I’m feeling sapped of creativity and inspiration. When I get home, the only thing I want to do is relax in front of the television, and the snooze button calls my name every morning. Not so long ago, I was filled with vision and purpose, but now I feel empty.  I’ve been frustrated with myself because even though writing regularly is so important to me, for some reason I can’t seem to make myself do it.

Something has to change, and I have to be the one to take action. I’m the only person who is capable of reaching my goals, and it’s time for me to figure out how to do that. Waiting for inspiration is a terrible way to live a creative life, and I’m determined to find a better path. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to create when your well of inspiration is running dry.  

Fortunately, creativity is a renewable resource. I am on a journey toward motivation and productivity, and it’s one of the hardest paths I’ve ever had to travel. But I know I’m not doing this alone. Everyone has been through this to one degree or another – maybe you’re going through it right now. Does the daily grind leave you feeling drained and exhausted? Are you unable to make time for the things you really love? Maybe you’re struggling to figure out what your passions really are.

If you’re dealing with this problem, there is hope. This is not the first time I’ve gone through this, and I always come out feeling better on the other side. Intellectually, I know this time will be no different. But that doesn’t make getting through this period any easier or faster. Unfortunately, there are no quick or easy solutions for general malaise and a lack of motivation. But there are things you can do, and many of them will recharge your creative mind and make you even better than you were before.

In fact, I’ve decided to embrace my lack of motivation as an opportunity to refresh my vision and advance my skills. I’m going to learn new things about myself and develop my authentic voice – and I want you to come on this journey with me.  Today marks the start of a 4-week series on motivating yourself out of a rut and into a better, more fulfilling place in your life. Follow along with me and find your true calling, discover hidden sources of inspiration, and light a fire under yourself. It’s time to start living your dreams every single day, and I am going to help you do that.

Will you join me? Are you ready to enrich your life and explore your creative mind? I know I am, and I couldn’t be more excited to have you along for the ride. I can’t promise it will be easy, but it will be worth it. And you deserve to live the life you want, as the best version of yourself.

If you’d like to participate, sign up for my email list and tell me about one of your dreams in the comment section. And if you’re not quite sure what your dream is yet, tell me that, too. Part of the process is figuring out what you really want, and I’ve got you covered. Just remember:  We’re going to spend the next four weeks working to turn your dream into a reality, so make it a good one!
