Often times we think we are only responsible for ourselves. We live our days concerned about health, finances, family, friends, traveling, our entire well being. We think of each moment as it relates to self. How will this decision effect me? If I did it that way, how would the outcome benefit me? What should I read about this morning? The questions go on and on. The decisions are endless.
Have you ever stop to think of how what you do not only effects you but others? Whether or not you know it, someone is inspired by you. There is someone or people whom look up to you and admire what you do or how you do what you do. They observe from afar. Knowing that should be reason enough to encourage you to live everyday with purpose and intent. You are someone's hope, their joy, and admiration. They may never say it, but you influence someone else's decisions and how they live their life.
Instead of taking advantage of the vulnerability that lies in influence, let's grab hold of the motivation it gives to self. It's a way to keep you positive and stimulated. Whenever it seems like everything around you is going astray and you are walking against the wind, remember that you are someone's inspiration. Yes, you are someone's superstar. Their unsung hero. Even if you feel you've let yourself down or didn't reach your goal, you are still someone else's sunshine. We all lose at something. You will never win at everything and sometimes what you aim to complete may not get done when you want it to. Don't allow yourself to be sadden because there is strength in being able to influence others.
"As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do." - Andrew Carnegie
Understand that people are inspired by not only your words, but if and how you put those words into action. Be resilient in all that you do because the decisions you make will not only effect self, but it could effect others as well.
