What is your definition of inspiration?

Chris: Inspiration is taking something in, so if you are listening to an inspirational speaker or a motivational speaker, the outcome of what we do with that information goes one or two ways. As you’re inspired, a seed is planted, and it gives you an idea of what you need to do next. But if that seed is not planted, you can’t move forward.

Viraj: To me it’s like it’s a pole of a possibility of where you are currently at and you see something that’s bigger, grander. It’s the vision and possibility that you connect with, as that seed is planted, you are now compelled to want to do something about that.

What is your definition of motivation?

Chris: Something’s gonna get you going, that inertia, something’s got to light a fire from within and give you a driving force to make that action happen.

Viraj: I think it’s the force and it’s the desire. The way I see motivation and inspiration together, it’s almost the action of breathing.

Why do you think inspiration and motivation are so frequently used in media these days?

Viraj: Maybe certain influencers are taking the motivational approaches to have people take a few quick steps, but they’re not sure what direction they are going in if people are needing action. 

Chris: Sometimes, a seed is planted in different ways. Some people light up with the word inspire, inspiration, motivate, motivation. It doesn’t matter what it is as long as our focus is change. It is actually doing good for us by putting out motivational and inspirational thoughts, and that’s what people need more than anything right now.


Why do you think we have different motivations to accomplish our goals?

Chris: I believe that would be because our desired outcome is different. We all want to do great things, but we have different ideas of what that great thing is. Some want to inspire, some want to instill hope, some people want to make money, some people just want to get ahead, and it really comes down to, “What’s your why?” 

How can you get inspired to excite your mind or emotions to pursue your goals?

Viraj: I think you have to visualize that you already have it. It’s not just having the visual, it’s also the feeling, like what is it going to feel like. Just really vividly create what it would be and believe that it’s possible.
