Your ability to inspire yourself during hard times will inspire others.
Hard times come and go, but they always come. Hard times test us, push us and build us. When you are experiencing hard times but find something that inspires you to push forward to overcome the hard times that is a testimony that will inspire others. We all have an obligation to make the world a better place in our own way. Some people invent cures for cancer. Other people create diplomatic solutions to world problems. Other people simply push forward day after day living their lives with integrity. All of these people are role models. All of these people should be admired and congratulated for the work they do.
It is important to realize that you do not have to be anyone but yourself to inspire others. Recently, my daughter who is a junior in college was called upon to give a speech to at a major event. She was nervous and afraid because it was an awesome responsibility. I was proud of her, of course. I reminded her that she did not have to be Oprah Winfrey or Michelle Obama to inspire the audience. I told her all she had to be was herself and she would rock the crowd. She was herself and she rocked. Afterward, several young women in the crowd told her she encouraged, inspired and motivate them to continue pushing forward.
Never feel that you have to be someone else to inspire others. Never doubt that you have the power to inspire others with who you are and what you bring to the table. Be your best and give your best to the world. By doing those two things you are an inspiration to all the world. Don’t look down on where you are or your place in the universe. Start each day by reminding yourself that who you are and where you are is enough to inspire others to be great.
Inspiration is not something beyond your ability to provide. Even when times are hard you can inspire yourself to greatness. So the question for you this magnificent day is, what inspires you to push forward?
