Some of Goodnet’s Favorite Quotes

Everyone needs inspiration in their life.

Aug 24, 2020

People who are inspired can do great things. But what exactly is inspiration? Is it something we can see and feel or is it something deep inside us?

This question was researched by two psychologists, Thrash and Elliot, who found that inspiration contains three main categories: evocation, transcendence, and approach motivation. Evocation is spontaneous motivation like when you read a book, see a movie, hear a song, or read quotes about freedom. This is unintentional inspiration.

Transcendence is when you feel something that is beyond everyday occurrences. Something that makes you feel awe and a special connection. And the last one, approach motivation, spurs you to take action, like running a marathon, becoming a teacher,  or helping people in need.

In these trying days with staying at home and social distancing, it is easy to feel unfulfilled and uninspired. But rising above this and becoming an inspiration to others will give your life meaning. So, let your life shine and you will give others permission to do the same.
