“In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit” - Albert Schweitzer
If you have lost it, how did you reignite it?
There are many ways for it to burst into flames again. One of the most effective is to surround yourself with people who inspire and challenge you.
Many times, people surround themselves only with those they are comfortable. The challenge there is will any of those people push or inspire you to step up when they see you stuck in a rut in life. More commonly, people keep others who are very much like them. Having only the agreeable friends and family holds back your inspiration and fire. They rarely push outside your comfort level.
Keep people in your life who are happy to question you about what you do and why you do it. They are some of the most valuable people to spend time with regularly since they will keep expanding your capabilities and opportunities. These people are the ones who will cause deep thinking which often reveals the spark for your next fire.
Now what if you just don't have these people in your life now? This is one reason many people hire a coach. It's the coaches job to do exactly this for you. Having someone who knows the questions to ask and how to help you find that fire is priceless. It will help you stay on track to create the life of your dreams.
Keep your eyes open for those who can serve this role in your life. They are often right in front of you.
