What inspires you? This is often a tough question to answer. Money, power, fame, the list can go on and on.
But Why take the time to inspire others? I bet your saying, I have a hard enough time inspiring myself much less someone else, right?
Well today Im going to challenge you with this blog. Go out and inspire someone today. It doesn’t have to be much and it takes very little effort, but the benefits are huge.
Here is one of my experiences with inspiration. One day I was reading one of the tweets from the Dalai Lama. He stated “When I wake in the morning I make a wish to be useful to others.”
One lady tweeted back and asked “But what happens when everyone around you is a jerk?”
I responded to her tweet by saying “be useful to them anyway. You are responsible for you, not them”.
It was simple and easy advice but a little bit of inspiration no less.
I was happy to receive back from her a tweet stating “This is the best advice/reply. Thank you”
My inspiration had returned to me, and what a rush. If the government knew how well this feeling was; they would tax or outlaw it.
But seriously, it proved the universal law of cause and effect, that what you send out always comes back to you. Often times in greater amounts. To be inspired we have to inspire others first.
So go out and be someones inspiration today. Its a contagious thing, but you will be glad that you did.
Please comment and tell me about your stories of inspiration.
