Need to get inspired? Gather inspiration from the late Jim Rohn, the legendary motivational speaker and author, whose words are an inspiration to millions. Also learn the origins of inspiration; what researchers believe is the key to finding it and how one reader used an inspirational moment to change his life.

Takeaways:

  • Josh practices Latin pronunciations as he dives into what inspiration really means, why it matters and how to find it.
  • Ancients believed inspiration is correlated with our breathing. We gather our thoughts on the "in" breath and release them on the "out" breath.
  • Studies show "inspired" writers are more efficient, spend less time pausing, and spend more time writing.
  • How do you overcome a lack of inspiration? Learn Josh and Shelby’s tips for overcoming writer's block and finally getting in the flow.
  • SUCCESS reader Brendan was fired from three jobs before he found his moment of inspiration and began his personal-development journey.

“If you struggle to make something clear for someone else, it helps to make it more clear for you.”
