I feel that inspiration can be a very useful tool in reaching your goals. The key is to not go into fantasy mode though. e.g you could watch Tiger Woods shoot an amazing score in the US Open and then say to yourself “Right, I am going to buy some golf clubs and work my ass off to become as good as I can be” whereas fantasy mode would just be your mind day dreaming of one day being able to win the US Open.
Today I saw something that was really inspiring, but sometimes something is so damn impressive that there is no way you think you could ever achieve it.
I used to play the guitar approx 8 years ago, and I was not bad, but I used to practice like crazy and I can assure you that to get anywhere near the level of this guy would take me the rest of my life.
Even if you do not like guitars or have no interest in ever playing the guitar, please watch this video. Inspirational guitar video
