How to Become Inspired

by Dr. Wayne Dyer -

Think From The End:

Some of the most significant advice I've ever read was written more than 2,000 years ago by an ancient teacher named Patanjali. He instructed his devotees to become inspired. You may recall that the word inspire originates from the words in and spirit.

Patanjali suggested that inspiration involves a mind that transcends all limitations, thoughts that break all their bonds and a consciousness that expands in every direction.

Here is how you can become inspired

Place your thoughts on what it is you'd like to become-an artist, a musician, a com­puter programmer, a dentist, or whatever. In your thoughts, begin to picture yourself hav­ing the skills to do these things. No doubts. Only a knowing.

Then begin acting as if these things were already your reality. 

As an artist, your vision allows you to draw, to visit art museums, to talk with famous artists and to immerse yourself in the art world. In other words, you begin to act as an artist in all aspects of your life. In this way, you're getting out in front of yourself and taking charge of your own destiny at the same time that you're cultivating inspiration.

The more you see yourself as what you'd like to become, the more inspired you are. 

The dormant forces that Patanjali described come alive, and you discover that you're a greater person than you ever dreamed yourself to be.

Imagine that dormant forces that were dead or nonexistent, springing into being and col­laborating with you as a result of your becom­ing inspired and acting as if what you want is already here!

By having the courage to declare yourself as already being where you want to be, you will almost force yourself to act in a new, excit­ing and spiritual fashion. 

When you become inspired and act as if what you want is already here, you'll activate those dor­mant forces that will collaborate to make this your reality.
