Motivation for me comes in many ways.

Hearing a new song, seeing a message on television, seeing watching and listening very small people put their new knowledge together to make "outside my box" connections. Seeing another innocent person hurt.

As Jonny said, seeing or hearing of an injustice.

Nine years ago you probably couldn't get me to acknowledge anything emotional that motivated me. A promotion, a raise in pay, a bonus, heading up a large and important project. Physical signs of advancement, etc.

Hello Everyone,

What motivates me? Depends on what I'm being motivated to do. If I'm going to write, usually I am addressing some sort of issue or injustice. I write a blog on public policy, political issues and economics.

My Sparkpeople blog is on health, nutrition and fitness. Often the people on these teams inspire my blog here.

I get inspired by reading what other people write. That's why I read books and articles. I especially love the stories of success here on Spark. Knowing that other people have conquered challenges makes me thing I can conquer mine - and gives me the impetus to write about them!!

What are some things that inspire you? What helps to motivate you?

For me, to get to writing, I like to just sit outside and look at nature, listen to the sounds and just have peace. It helps, and I find that a lot of new ideas pop in to my head, which is what I want.

I also get inspiration and motivation from SparkPeople. I love their articles and success stories and they definitely give me a boost.
