Be The Inspiration That You Want To See In The WorldWednesday, March 08, 2017
I’m sure you can name a lot of people who have inspired you throughout your life, and have motivated you to always try your best. Parents, friends, teachers- even famous role models. Having people to look up to, or who inspire you to get out there into the world and push yourself is extremely beneficial. Who knows, maybe you have have helped and motivated others without even realising. If you like the idea of helping people and becoming a source of inspiration, here are a few ways to go about it.
Did you know that enthusiasm is contagious? No one can be happy all the time, but if you try to see the good in a bad situation (and deal with problems in a positive and graceful way) this can inspire others to do the same. If you remain happy and open about your own personal and professional projects this could very easily pass onto those around you. As a result, they will be inspired to start their own projects or try and better their current ones. It doesn’t take much to be enthusiastic- smile more and have a positive exterior. Try not to complain about things you can't change, and see life's difficult lessons as a way to teach you and help you grow. This is a great way to pass on your positive vibes!
Become A Life Coach
If you know a thing or two about what it takes to be happy and successful in life, why not pass on that knowledge to other people in your life? One way to do this is to take one of the many professional coaching courses out there that get you the qualifications needed. Once you become a certified coach, you will be able to host lectures and seminars to help people better equip themselves for success. You will find that life coaching can also turn into quite a lucrative side project as well!
Don’t Focus on Negativity
Constructive criticism is fantastic, but not everyone wants to (or is ready to) hear this. Unless someone has specifically asked for constructive criticism then it's always best to keep any negative opinions to yourself. When people are trying hard and looking for inspiration, negativity can be very damaging and even cause them to give up or fail. Keep an optimistic outlook, focus on the good and build them up to inspire them to keep going and do better.
Admit Your Own Flaws
Once you've accepted your flaws no-one can use them against you, not even yourself. Accept yourself fully and embrace your flaws and mistakes, this is what makes you who you are. When you're at a good place with yourself, you're in the best place to help others. Use your past failures to help others not make the same mistakes. Be open about them with the people you're trying to help, this makes you relatable. It also allows people to see that not everything happens perfectly, there are bumps in the road but you can work past them! They will see that you managed to survive and that they will also be able to when life decides to throw them a curveball.
So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and become the inspiration you want to see in the world!
