I’ve noticed that I don’t follow many people on social media who work in the same industry as I do. It’s not something I initially did on purpose but I have become more aware of those I choose to follow online. While there are certainly many great people to draw inspiration from, I don’t want to put myself in a position where I’m trying to mimic, replicate, or compete with what they’re doing. One thing I’ve experienced is that there’s a fine line between inspiration and imitation.
While I certainly draw inspiration from others, I try to challenge myself. I value my intuition as my greatest source of inspiration. Aside from that, I listen to podcasts and follow people who work in a completely unrelated field than I do. I open myself up to learn from them and allow them to spark unexpected inspiration. I’m sharing this because I’ve found some amazing people to follow that I never would have found if I was only paying attention to what other life coaches or female entrepreneurs were doing. I encourage you to follow people who not only inspire you but challenge you because great things come when you play outside of your comfort zone!
There’s a lot to be said about the company we keep and that includes online. Do you surround yourself with people on social media who inspire you?
Wishing you all that you need to spark your inspiration!
