There is a distinct difference between “inspire” and “motivate”
08/04/2021

There is a distinct difference between “inspire” and “motivate”

People often use the terms "inspire" and "motivate" interchangeably. Conceptually they may seem related, but in fact, they are worlds apart.

"Inspire" translates to "in spirit." Inspiration comes from within.

The root word of "Motivate" is "motive," which is an external force that causes us to take action.

Motivation pushes you to accomplish a task, or work through a difficult event, even when you would rather be doing anything else. We are motivated by a result.

Inspiration pulls you towards something that stirs your heart, mind, or spirit. We are inspired by a person, an event, or a circumstance.

When we are inspired, we aren't thinking about the final end state. In fact, when we are filled with inspiration, we want to hold onto that feeling for as long as possible.
