“Someone might have a germ of talent, but 90 percent of it is discipline and how you practice it, what you do with it… Instinct won’t carry you through the entire journey. It’s what you do in the moments between inspiration.” – Cate Blanchett
You know these moments, the ones when you are dull and uninspired. The moments when you are meandering through life with no sense of passion or purpose. These moments count the most.
These moments are when you can set yourself apart from the rest. You have the opportunity to turn that valley into the peak you are always searching for. The difference between those who embrace those moments and those who do not is that the person embracing the slump does not see a slump. Instead, they see another day and another chance to reach for greatness.
You will only see what you want to see. You have to put out what you want to receive. If you find yourself in a slump, it is only because you led yourself there. You have the power every day to change your mindset. You can choose happiness or unhappiness.
If you choose correctly and focus on this positive outlook, you will get positivity in return. You have to decide what to do in these moments between inspiration. How will you spend them?
