How to Inspire Others

Have you always wanted to inspire others? Not just to be inspired, but to also inspire others, or help them through a rough time? Maybe you have a friend at school that needs inspiring, or maybe you want to somehow inspire others. If you do want to inspire and encourage, this is the article for you!

This depends on whether you’re a kid or an adult. But say you want to inspire someone but you can’t find anyone to inspire. Did you know that you can actually inspire or motivate someone by just being you – being helpful and kind? That will actually inspire them to be just like you!

If you want to inspire others, all you need to do is be yourself and let others see the positivity gleaming from that.

Achieving Your Goals

Do you have a dream that you want to see come true? Or, do you have a goal that you want to achieve? Whether it’s to be a doctor or a firefighter when you grow up, or to go skydiving or to cross off your bucket list? Every human being has a goal.

There are some people who feel like they can’t achieve their goal or make their dreams come true. You might be one of those people. There are also some people who are very confident and know for a fact they will achieve their goals. You also might be one of these people. For the ones who are not confident they will achieve their goal:

You can achieve your goal. No matter what other people tell you, you can and will achieve your goal. If other people tell you that you can’t do something, don’t listen to that. If you think at all that what they’re saying about you not achieving your dreams makes sense, then they’re wrong. You can make your dreams come true, no matter what anyone else tells you!

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” – Walt Disney

The reason you’re still hoping you’ll achieve your goal is because you haven’t decided to achieve it yet.” – Jill Koenig, a millionaire and entrepreneur that started from a life of poverty

For the ones who are confident in achieving their goal:

Keep up the great work. Keep living your dream and achieving your goal, and you can do it just like anyone else can if you put your mind to it!

Remember that you can always achieve your goals, if you put your mind to it. If there’s a will, there’s a way.

The Trek of Success

Have you ever heard the phrase, “climb the ladder of success”? You probably might’ve heard that before in talk of entrepreneurial success in business and maybe even personal success. But there’s a reason it’s a ladder and not an escalator. Escalators just escalate you; all you have to do on those is just stand on them and you automatically go up. A ladder is something you have to climb. You may very well slip down a few steps, but you will always continue to succeed, provided you do the right steps.

noonehaseverclimbedtheladderofsuccesswithbothhandsintheirpockets

This was a quote by Zig Ziglar, a very famous author, salesman, and a motivational speaker:

Success is like a ladder, and no one has ever climbed a ladder with both hands in their pockets.” – Zig Ziglar

I made two quotes that I hope will encourage you (other than the picture)

If you believe, you can achieve.” You can’t achieve if you can’t believe that you can do it.

Sometimes the right path isn’t always the easiest path. So many people resort to the easiest path, because they’re too lazy to try something new. But the right path isn’t always the easiest one, and if you want to take the right path, put more comfortable shoes on because you’re going for a ride.” This one was a little longer, just because I didn’t want it to be a cute, little phrase to just repeat as a mantra. This one is something you can try to remember as a serious quote to you.

Remember that you can succeed, but you can’t succeed with both hands in your pockets. You must help other people who may start out as people who don’t know how to succeed and needs help, and just that in itself will help you succeed.

I like to think of success as a trek through the forest, or more like hiking up a mountain. Sometimes you may backslide, but with your own efforts and the help of others you will get back on track. My parents always help me get back on track, with success and everything else. It’s a great thing to have friends in business who like to help you out when you slip one step down the ladder.

This is also a quote from the Big Ideas Kid Coaching Team, saying:

The Sun’s out so rise and shine, because it’s your time to shine. So… what are you waiting for?” That’s the question, isn’t it? What are you waiting for?

Let’s Make a Difference

Why did Thomas Edison invent the light bulb? Why did Alexander Graham Bell invent the telephone? Why did Michael Jordan become a basketball player? Because they all wanted to make a difference in the world, and they wanted to show everyone who might’ve booed them or thought they wouldn’t make it that these famous people can make it, and they can do what they know they can do. They didn’t let other people’s thoughts get in the way to stop them from reaching their goals and achieving their dreams.

Someone noted on Albert Einstein that he could be mentally ill. Sylvester Stallone was frequently told he had no brains, was in and out of different schools, and an advisor at Drexel University told him that, based on analysis, he should get a job as an elevator repairperson. Walt Disney was told he had a lack of imagination and had no creative ideas. Even though all these famous people were told they couldn’t do what they dreamed of doing, told they couldn’t make a difference in the world, they made a difference nevertheless.

Great leaders don’t set out to be a leader; they set out to make a difference. It’s never about the role – always about the goal.” Just remember that when you go to work, school, or play (it depends on who’s reading this article right now). Let’s make a difference together! Remember that you can make a difference. So, what’s stopping you?
