Inspirations and Motivations are a necessity most importantly to make progress or evolve in life. Hence very firstly let us understand what do they actually mean and understand the difference between them. We will also look into some aspects of them and few ways of achieving Inspirations and Motivations.
What does it mean?
Definition of ‘inspiration’
Inspiration is defined as an internal force which makes an individual feel enthusiastic towards doing something.
Inspiration is a feeling of enthusiasm we get from someone or something, which gives you new and creative ideas.
Someone or something that gives us ideas for doing something.
The word “inspiration” comes from the late Latin word “inspirare” which means “in spirit” or “divine guidance”.
- Someone or something that gives us ideas for doing something
- My inspirations come from people’s like you.

Motivation is defined as an external force which makes an individual act towards achieving a goal. (OR) Reason or Reasons for acting or behaving in a particular way.
The word “motivation” comes from the Latin word “movere”, which means move.
- Our motivation for doing something is what causes us to want to do it.
- Escape from routine life can be a strong motivation for travel.
Human motives are based on needs, whether consciously felt or not, like primary needs such as the physiological needs of water, air, food, sleep, and shelter.
What is the difference?
As we move along the path of life we are inspired and motivated to do things. Thereby achieving our objectives, goals, and desires.
To get more clarity on this I will quote a short story from my own life.
This is from the years when I had just completed my Diploma in Computer Programming and was searching for a job. I was a topper and the best in programming in the institute because of which 2 friends approached and motivated me to join them in a Software Consultancy Business. I spoke about the same to my family and other friends but they were of a different opinion. They advised me to first have proper industry experience and then start with a business. But I had thoughts of stories of my forefathers who were very successful businessmen of their time. Inspired by them I decided to join the business.
Difference between Inspirations and Motivations
By the above story, it is clear that there is a big difference between inspirations & motivations.
- My friends motivated me to join the business.
- The stories of my forefathers inspired me to join the business.
On reading the above sentences we can understand the difference between the two words clearly. Inspiration comes from inside. Where else motivation comes from external forces in this case from friends.
Does -ve inspiration exists?
Everything in this world has two sides +ve and -ve. In the same way, Inspirations also has a +ve and a -ve side. Most of us like to stick to the +ve one. This majorly depends on what influences us the most besides that it directly depends on the surroundings and most importantly on the company in which we keep ourselves.
