Discover Your Muse In 6 Easy Steps

FInding Your Creative Muse & Inspiration

This article explains how modern advice for achieving success is flawed. It explains how people are given tips and advice, but are not given any direction or driving principles. Unquenchable persistence is the driving principle that helps people to achieve success. It also explains that no plan may succeed unless it is adaptive.

There are many books on the subject of achieving your goals and getting what you want. Many of them give advice, but no directions, which is no use to you. Many more of them give you examples of how their techniques work, and miss out the examples where they didn’t work. If you want to make success inevitable, then you need to become an unstoppable force. You cannot let circumstances, criticism or fear deter you from your goal of becoming a success.

 

1. Where is your muse hiding in the mist of this?

When you create your driving principles and you discover your motivation, you are going to come up with more ideas than you can handle. You are going to start having ideas at the most inopportune times and will learn to carry a notepad around to keep track of your ideas.

When you have a driving purpose and it becomes a burning desire, you cannot help thinking about your goal and purpose. You become mildly obsessed to the point where your own subconscious starts to come up with ideas without you knowing. You start to read newspapers, essays, adverts and bulletin boards and applicable ideas will creep up on you.

 

2. Never stop trying until the day you die

Let us dispense with the usual, “You need to make a plan” advice, and assume you know what you want to achieve. You need force yourself to never give up trying to achieve that goal. Not only that, but you need to keep going until your success is a sure thing.

The only unstoppable forces in this world are the ones that just keep going. The sea chips away at our shores every minute of every day, and the wind spends millions of years turning mountains into desserts.

 

3. What is creativity?

It is not coming up with something new, and is not all about art. It is about attaching an idea, thought or feeling to something else. Do not try to be creative and do not try to be different. For example, if you want to make a picture scary then do not jump straight to making the people’s eyes black. Think of what scares you specifically, such as hands that feel like they are turning into spider hands, or a jaw that is locked open.

I have failed” is past tense.

All you need to do is make sure that you never stop trying. You need to make a point of continuing to achieve your goal until your last day on this earth. How can you possibly fail if you never stop trying? By definition, you are only able to fail if you actually stop.

 

4. Create a plan that grows

If you are going to keep trying until the day you die, then you cannot simply make a plan and stick to it. You need to make a plan with the understanding that it is going to change and grow. Every time you hit a bump in the road, you need to re-examine your plan and change it to compensate for, or circumvent, the bump in the road. Every time you come across an insurmountable problem, it just means you need to make a new plan in order to solve the problem, or avoid it.

 

5. Your plan needs to be dynamic and adaptive

As you achieve your goals, you need to set new ones. If you do not alter and change your plan, then how can you ever expect to make any progress? This is a scary concept for some people because it means that the future in unknown. It means that you plan for today may be redundant tomorrow, but that is true anyway, so you need to learn to accept it. Moreover, if you know in advance how to achieve success without any possibility of failing, then why haven’t you done it yet? The future is always going to be uncertain, but instead of being afraid of it, you need to be ready to adapt to it.

 

6. How to find it and how to be inspired every day

A truly purpose driven person is never bored. If you have a moment or two and start to trickle into boredom then go back and look at your notes. Turn your notes into written ideas and as you do it you will see how your ideas build up, evolve and progress. Many times you will not even have the time to finish rewriting or cataloging your notes because you will have to write more in order to record your ideas.

Some people think that the path to their goals is either going to be either cool, fun events or else tough adversity, both of which are exciting

    Hi Joel – nice article. One thing I’m missing, though, is the notion that although you should never give up and keep going at it, you are also going to encounter a lot of boring, mundane things along the way which aren’t setbacks so much as confusing obstacles. Some people think that the path to their goals is either going to be either cool, fun events or else tough adversity, both of which are exciting. I’m convinced that it’s the ability to cope with the unexciting, boring monotonous, details, though, that can make a person truly successful.

5 Things You Can Learn From The 5am Club by Robin Sharma

Avatar

Published

on

It has been said by Robin Sharma, “5 AM is the time of least distraction, highest human glory, and greatest peace.” This also happens to be the central idea or the core value he has discussed in his book, ‘The 5 Am Club.’ Speaking of early mornings, at what time do you wake up? Are you annoyed by the fact that you wake up on the edge of time and then rush to work in haste? 

The life lessons put forth by The 5 AM Club are exactly the learning and motivation you need to challenge your complacency. In your race against time, you may not have the time to read this fabulous book. So, we have summed up the key book’s takeaways for your convenience.

1. The vigor of waking up early

This is what the book’s most fundamental advice to everyone is. Waking up at 5 am every day can work wonders to avert failures and make success a natural habit. When we wake up at 5 am, we have more time on our hands than others. Besides, this is when we have minimum interruptions and maximum powerfulness of the mind. 

To add, the early morning peace is priceless! You can schedule your most important tasks of the day between 5am, and 8am. This book teaches us in the simplest way, how we can train our mind and strengthen it to deliver the highest productivity by waking up early. This energy that you have when you wake up in the morning and the few additional hours in your day are what serve as perfect ingredients for success.

“The secret to productivity is simplicity.” – Robin Sharma

2. The power of finding the right balance in life

The book talks about a precious lesson of finding the right balance within. We often talk about the need for mindfulness and achieving the right mindset to perceive things. But this book goes a few steps ahead of our usual approach to life. It highlights the vitality of mindset and introduces the concepts of heartset, healthset, and soulset.

These terms may seem new, but they are self-explanatory. The idea of heartset endorses the essentialness of emotional stability and well-being. Next, the perspective of healthset indicates the need to look after physical health. At last, soulset is an attribute of spirituality. As explained in this book, success prospects can be enhanced big time by achieving the right balance between these internal virtues.

3. The iconic 20/20/20 modus operandi

What is the first thing you will do if you start waking up at 5 am every day? Did you ever spare a thought about it? This book has the answer to this question, and you will be convinced that it is a great way to begin your day!. The author suggests that you should split the first hour of the day into three equal parts of 20 minutes each.

In the first 20 minutes of the day, you should prioritize your physical fitness and exercise. In the next 20 minutes, you should energize your soul and spirit via self-reflection and soulful meditation. This will prepare you for the rest of the day and will enable you to bolster your commitment and focus. In the last 20 minutes of the first hour, you should read and learn. But what are you going to read about in those 20 minutes? Read about successful people and their inspiring journeys to the pinnacle of success.

4. The significance of a proper sleep schedule

In this book, there is a mention of ‘a ferocious global sleep recession’, which is intriguing and enlightening. It hints at the state of sleep deprivation that this world is sinking into gradually. We often associate success and hard work with the notion of staying up all night and testing our endurance beyond limits. But that is not the right approach to accomplishing success, or rather, it is a flawed methodology.

Sometimes even if we do not have any critical work, we keep whiling our night time on social media or television. What are we gaining from it is the real question, and I am afraid the answer is nothing! We learn from this book that it is critical to look after your sleep cycle and start your day at 5 am afresh. Sleep and rest are indispensable for mental and physical well-being, or your productivity will decline.

“If you want to have the results only 5% have, you must be willing to do and think like only 5% do and think.” – Robin Sharma

5. The art of evolving

The book sheds light on the need to be spiritual and master self-reflection. However, do you realize the purpose that the routine of reflection each morning serves? The idea is to keep learning, keep reflecting on the mistakes and keep evolution an ongoing process. You should evolve every day and strive to be a better version of yourself every day. So, one of your primary goals after waking up should be to reflect on your actions and missed opportunities of the previous day.

To recapitulate, The 5 AM Club is a must-read book if you are a passionate reader. It has the prowess and charm to refurbish your perception of life altogether. Even if you cannot read the book for some reason, make sure you incorporate the above key takeaways into your life. By starting your day at 5 am, you can rediscover your lost soul and enthusiasm, and you would not have complaints to make about the lack of time. If you can own your mornings, you can go places on the ladder of success, for excuses are only for those who are not committed to their goals.
