How To Be An Inspiration

How To Be An Inspiration

Feeling pretty groovy about life? Perpetuate your wellness: Share your inspiration with others.


Know What You Believe

Do you know anyone that you admire because of their integral desire to practice what they preach? You can do it too ...

All of us have values woven through us. They are literally the threads of our beings, which create our actions, define our intentions, and generate our life perspective. The first key to inspiring others is to define your values in real terms so that you are able to verbalize them, act upon them and share them. Make a list of your most heartfelt beliefs. Then, next to them, write down how you already practice your values on a daily basis. Finally, think up new ways to extend your belief systems into your working life.

Keep It All Real

Do you have three dinner invitations on Friday night, but have been putting off your plans to start that "family game night" you keep talking about? Learning how to say no graciously can keep yourself grounded in the values of your own world.

Life poses too many opportunities to waste time doing things without meaning or value. If you don't believe wholeheartedly in a cause or event, simply don't participate. This one is difficult. Saying no to things is not an easy task. But if you want to focus your energies on things you believe in, say no often. Say it graciously. Say it with or without explanation. People will admire the dedication you have to your values.

Speak Up

Ever had great service but not had the time to bother telling anyone? It seems we only have time to write complaint notices. Make it a practice to speak up about the good things too.

The balance of the world seems to have shifted. More violence. More right to complain. What about the art of complimenting? I have a simple rule. For each time I make a complaint about something, within one week, I must give two compliments. This sometimes means writing a letter of commendation, or simply letting someone know that I appreciate what they have done. There are still far more wonderful things in the world than the alternative. Acknowledge them, embrace them, and speak up about them.

Inspire the Future

What makes you feel great? Playing baseball, going for a walk, digging in your garden, finding pictures in clouds, writing a letter ... Share these things with others -- especially children.

Although we all think we are busy, future generations will have an even more difficult time achieving balance in this world. Take the time and make the effort to share the wonderful little things in life. Connect yourself to the future and share what you find most inspiring.

Define Your Roles and Goals

Achieving the goals in your workplace is one thing. But what about the goals you have for yourself?

When you think of yourself, if more words than "Worker" come to mind, be sure to make goals for each of the personal roles you fulfill. As a mother or father, create time to find was to be better. As a coach or teacher, find ways to develop yourself. And as a spiritual human being, be sure to be true to your inner self. Be a positive role model in all of your roles and watch others follow your lead.
