I bet you never noticed whether you inspire yourself or not. Why not? Why do we always look at the lives of others for inspiration?
Notice your own path
Stop and see yourself as others see you. Listen to what they say about you and to you. Watch their faces when you interact with them. Notice how you feel when you’ve accomplished something. You’re doing so much more than you realize you’re doing.
Trust that your light is shining
Whenever you affect someone’s life, this creates a ripple effect because the person turns and to the next person offers a reflection of how you’ve affected him or her. Your presence goes on and on and affects many more people than you can imagine.
I’m a writer. But I truly have no idea how I am changing lives. Yes, there are “likes” on Facebook, and personal notes on occasion, but what I really care about is that someone has read what I wrote and was changed by it. I’ll probably never know how far-reaching that ripple is. But I know I am compelled to keep on sharing.
Shine your brightest light
What I can do is be the best me I can be. I continue to explore what calls to me and explain it the best way I can and let it go. I have grown by the doing. Others will grow by the reading. And still others will be affected by the resulting changes in us.
You can’t measure your brightness nor can you have any idea of what darkened corner your light will reach into. What you can do is shine your brightest. Do you best work. Be your kindest self. Express your best ideas. Do your best work.
Feel the power of your own life
If you’re growing as a person, you’re inspiring others. If you’re enthusiastically going about your life, others will most certainly be inspired.
Make a list of what you have accomplished and the known effect it has had on others. Be inspired by touching even one person. Be inspired by the completion of a project, no matter how small it was, knowing that you did your best in the moment.
Look in the mirror and smile and know that your mere presence is inspiring.
You’re inspiring not because of what you do but because of how you are. When you are the best you possible, you are inspiriting.
