One Way Or Another, We Are All Inspirational To Others

I am inspired by ordinary people who have done extraordinary things. They are selfless, creative, brave, or go against the norm ...

People like Mother Teresa, Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr; all of them were ordinary people who decided they would change the world and who, despite nearly impossible odds and tremendous opposition, weren't afraid to try.

"The best thing about this is the 'ordinary' part!"

Of course, they had the ability to be charismatic, but all of them came from poor and difficult backgrounds, and all of them had to climb huge mountains to make their dreams a reality. One of the things they all have in common is that they were both authentic and admired authenticity in others.

You also don't have to be famous or in the news to inspire others. Sometimes the most inspiring people in the world are completely unknown because they are doing their thing locally for something they believe in. Or they are inspiring their teams on a project they all care about, or even launching a new product or service.

"Understand that you can be an inspiration to others, no matter what you feel you have or have not achieved!"

Even if you feel that you have not yet reached the endpoint, and also if you feel like you have reached a low point, you have the ability to inspire. No matter who you are, giving back and inspiring others comes equipped with many benefits. You never know whom you're going to impact when you give, and you never know who might be in a position to reciprocate if you ever find yourself in a time of need.

Giving back leaves a legacy that will live on far longer than you will. You will be amazed at the way inspiring others makes you feel. In fact, it is the only feeling that rivals the one you get when you realise you have achieved your dream.

In my new book, Not A Robot, (to be published next year), Inspiration is one of the primary human skills I focus on. Below are some ways you can make a difference; who knows where it might lead for you and the people around you?

And finally, you probably think that you can only inspire when you have achieved your dream. This is not true as it doesn't matter where you are on your journey, you will be further along than someone else. This person could certainly use your help and advice. To them, you can be a great inspiration. So, when it comes time to give back, there is never a better time than now.
