Inspiration & Motivation have something in common. The word is influence. Influence can be a good driving force or it can hurt you. I believe the first place we pull our inspiration/motivation/influence to do what we do is from watching others. Depending where I am in this walk called life, someone has given me that push that I need to keep going. Whether it was directly or indirectly.
When I am at a block or not "motivated" to do anything (which happens often), I look toward other people and their creativity. This gives me the will and push to want to do more.
