We all need it, don’t we?

It helps us find that much-needed confidence.
The confidence that helps us be who we’re and fight for our place under the sun.

Without it, this whole freelance life just doesn’t taste the same.
That’s why we, as entrepreneurs, need it. It’s our drug. It’s what keeps us going. It’s what makes our life so exciting. It’s what makes us stronger.
That’s why we crave for inspiration on a daily basis.
We need it.
So that we can function properly.
And quite naturally we reach out to other people. People that we find inspiring. People that motivate us and helps us find that inner strength.
But do we really need them?
I mean, we all have our idols and heroes.
And translation industry knows many examples.
There are many inspirational translators in this industry.
Translators who care about the future of our profession. Translators who have an incredible amount of authority and influence in the industry.
And of course, we, the newbies, reach out to them at every opportunity we’ve got. We follow them, we read them, we listen very carefully to their advice, we try to talk to them at conferences or on social networks.
Some people even send personal emails, asking for help and advice.
But what if we never had them? What if that source of inspiration would seize to exist?
Who would be the most inspirational translator then?
The answer is pretty simple: you are.
You are the most inspirational translator of this amazing industry even though you don’t realize that yet.
We believe that we need someone or something else to inspire us, but that’s not true.
Because inspiration is a built-in function. You had it all along.
It’s in our hearts. It’s in our minds.
It’s in our work.

And in order to find it, all you have to do is believe in yourself.
You’re the most inspirational translator.
The sooner you realize that the better.
Because once you do, you’ll see how it will change everything.
It will change your approach to life, it will change your approach to business.
This is the pure form of inspiration. It will help you come up with amazing ideas.
It will help you make a difference and change the lives of people around you.
But more importantly, it will help you be… yourself.
The real you.
It will help you find your inner voice, your strengths, your weaknesses.
And that opportunity, the opportunity to be yourself, is the most amazing thing in the world.
So, look inside yourself. What do you see?
