Happy LAST Tuesday of 2014!
Guess what?! This is the 52nd week I’ve posted a new article to the blog and sent out my newsletter. Pretty awesome, right? These were two of my goals for 2014 and I’m so excited to have met them. Now, it’s just habit.
Many articles this week and next will be about setting goals for 2015. I encourage you to read them.
But here’s what I want you to think about for these last few days of 2014 and the first few days of 2015:
Reach out to somebody who inspires you.
This can be in business or your writing. It can be somebody you know personally or a business mentor or author you’ve never met. But what I want you to do is to make an effort to tell them how and why he or she is your inspiration.Reach out to somebody who inspires you! Click To Tweet
BTW: If it is an author you don’t know, there’s always contact information in the book somewhere. A letter or email addressed to a publisher usually does reach the author.
Now, I’m not saying that you’re going to write fan mail to a celebrity! I’m saying true inspiration – the type that makes YOU dig deep and keep going. The type that makes your creativity fountain run after nearly going dry. The type of inspiration that makes you take a deep breath, lace your boots up tighter, and keep putting one foot in front of another.
The person who inspires you when everything else in your life has turned to darkness.
It’s time to reach out to THAT person.
I look at this as a karmic donation to inspiration. You’re not donating your time or money (although you can!) but you’re acknowledging the inspiration. What you focus on you attract – so by putting your attention on what inspires you, you’ll bring more inspiration into your life.
Finish 2014 with an ode to inspiration. (Or at the very least a warm email to somebody who makes your eyes light up!)
