What is inspiration? How do you define it? A lot of people have trouble describing exactly what it is. They just know that there are moments in their life when they feel inspired, and other times when they don’t. In this article, we’re going to look at the science behind inspiration, and how and where to find it.

What is inspiration?

Inspiration is a feeling you get when:

You’re in the zone. This is a state of mind where you are fully concentrated on what you’re doing, which leaves no room for distractions—but it’s also a state that comes with a sense of freedom and even euphoria.

It gives you an endorphin high like no other, but it can be incredibly hard to replicate this state consistently or at will. Even though it’s not always easy, if you’ve ever felt inspired while working on something meaningful to yourself, then know that there is great power in recognizing when we’re inspired and learning how to channel that energy into actionable projects instead of letting our emotions take over.

Imagine this scenario:

You love what you do. When you find yourself doing work that you love more often than not, inspiration becomes one more tool in your arsenal of happiness rather than something elusive and fleeting; with practice (and perhaps some luck) you can learn how to harness this feeling into making something truly special out of any given moment during your day-to-day lives.

You are good at what you do (or want). Whether or not anyone else recognizes your talents doesn’t matter; if there was ever any doubt about whether or not your skills were valuable before then put those doubts to rest: they totally count toward inspiring yourself!

If anything they should actually inspire *more* confidence because who cares if no one else believes in you anymore? That just means you need to believe in yourself even harder 🙂

Inspiration is a curious thing. We all want to be inspired, and yet so many of us struggle to find inspiration in our everyday lives. But if we can only figure out what causes inspiration, we may be able to reverse-engineer it for ourselves.

As you’ve seen in this article, there are many different things that inspire us, from beautiful art and nature to inspiring people and their stories. These things all give us something more than we had before: hope for the future or belief in ourselves—and that is what makes them inspiring!
