We all receive inspiration from a variety of different sources. For some it maybe an individual – a mentor or a teacher. For others it may be a book or some other piece of writing. Whatever your source of inspiration, in these modern days you might think that it would be hard for the technological rush the world seems to be swept along on, to do anything other than create noise and confusing, as opposed to clarity and focus – but you might be surprised.
Technology is advancing in all areas of our lives, and this is even true for those who seek inspiration and guidance in the pursuit of their personal and professional goals, making resources and information more accessible, to more people. Here, we’re going to look at a number of mobile apps that could provide you with the inspiration you’ve been looking for.
GPS for the Soul – Created by the Huffington Post, this app provides the tools and encouragement you need to ‘reconnect with your centred place of balance’. Designed more to help you bring harmony into your life, particularly in these chaotic modern times, than to provide inspiration, the collection of tools and resources will help with your focus and understanding of what you want to achieve in your life.
Dream a Bit – Developed by messapps New York, this is an app that is designed to provide the inspiration you need to achieve your goals. Dream a Bit provides an organised space for you to create and keep your goals, as well as a simple and intuitive design that makes tracking your progress simple and enjoyable.
Rewire – This is an app from Randome Studios and is also designed to provide inspiration for those who need help with habit and goal tracking. Based on Seinfeld’s productivity secret, this app has a range of features to help you develop the kind of habits that will ‘rewire’ yourself to achieve the goals you’ve identified as key to your success.
Bloom – Bloom is a beautiful and simple app from Mindbloom, that ‘turns your phone into a source of inspiration’. The app allows you to create ‘blooms’, which are combinations of you favourite images, quotes and music, that you can set to appear throughout your day. You can even send your blooms to friends and family, to help inspire them too.
Build Confidence – Unsurprisingly, this collaboration between Andrew Johnson and The Mindfulness Company is designed to exactly what you’d expect, help you increase your confidence so you can achieve your full potential in life. This app will inspire you to get rid of the things that are holding you back, change the way you view yourself and the world, and set you on the path to success.
These are just some of the apps out there that are designed to help inspire you towards the success you’re looking for, and there are obviously others. But what we think is important to remember is that technology, just was with everything else in our lives, can be used to help us move forward, if we use it in the right way.
