Would you like to impact other people lives, inspire them to go beond themselves and live a successful and meaningful life?
Yes. Great. You don’t need to look pretty or handsome, you don’t need to make millions, you don’t need to live in New York or in some other great places to inspire people. All you need is be the best of who you’re and show that great spirit of yours. Be a great example.
Here are some ways of inspiring people.
1. Show you genuinly care.
Here is a quote from Theodore Roosevelt: No-one cares how much you know until they know how much you care. First show people you genuinely care about them. As you know that is simple and easy if you really do care. Sometimes just: how you doing?, shows you care about someone otherwise you wont ask.
2. Be positive and enthusiastic.
To inspire other people you need to have a positive outlook in life. Be upbeat and wear a genuine smile. Enthusiasm is contagious. It make other people feel the same as you, positive about situations and life in general.
3. Build trust. Build people up.
It takes time to earn the trust of people, while it can be lost in minutes. So earn that trust, not just by talking but show them they can trust you. Also if you notice someone is feeling down or broken be there for them. This is the moment they need you most. Tell them things will be ok. Give them a hug. Ask if they need any help. Assist them so they can get through tough times. By doing so you build trust and you build people up.
4. Be careful when you criticize.
Sometime we see things in others that we don’t like. It doesnt mean we’re always right. So think before you criticize. As it hurts. Only cunstructive criticism and only if they ask for, when they ask for. Show them with examples they can improve this way.
5. Stand firm in what you believe in.
Stand up firm in what you believe in. You don’t need to tell people. They will see that you’re proving you live by example. This inspire people to live a meaningful life.
6. Admit your imprefections.
You dont need to have an answer for everything to inspire people. Just be your true self. Admitting your short falls only makes you human.
7. Listen to people to seek understanding.
When someone is trying to communicate a strong message into you, please don’t interrupt them. Make eye contact and try to fully understand their feelings behind their words. Listen carefully as a nice human being would do. When they finish, ask questions if you not clear about something and let them know what you truly think about it.
8. Believe in people.
Show people your true self and who you really are. Encourage them to reach for the stars. Show them that you really believe in them and they truly can do it. You only fail if you stop. Otherwise failure is a step towards your dream.
9. Set people free.
If you truly believe in someone, anyone tell them they can accomplish great things in life. But dont give them a step by step guide. Let others explore the world with their imagination. Let those people fill the blanks for themselves along the way. Let other people show you, they can be inspiring too.
