Hi everybody, it’s Tasso.

When we are lost, we look for inspiration. Because inspiration is the catalyst that appeals to something very deep in us that drives us to change.

That’s why big corporate organization aims to hire inspiring leaders because they know that they will motivate and mobilize the masses.

But how do you become more inspiring? What does it take for you to inspire others?

Five suggestions from my side:

 

Number one: believe you can.

In my very first blog post, I tried to convince people that they are role models. In fact, everybody is a role model anytime, everywhere. Whether we are aware of it or not, we are an example to others. People always look up to others for guidance. They pick up behaviors from others and they validate their own behaviors through that.

If you are full of insecurities and if you walk around thinking “Who am I for people to follow? Who am I to inspire others? I’m struggling with my own problems”, then you won’t get very far.

You need to believe in yourself and that you have to offer something to this world. You need to overcome your self-doubts and to see the big picture. You need to see yourself as the channel through which some greater good acts.

 

Number two: live by example.

Don’t try to please others. Instead, try to behave in a way that makes others want to be like you. If you are honest, if you are happy, if you are grateful, if you are humble, helpful and in particular, in difficult situations, people will think, “What is it about this person that allows them to be like this?”

If people freak out and you keep your calm, this is inspiring. If people worry about the future, but you are grateful for what you have right now, that’s inspiring. If people lie and you don’t, if you keep your word and you walk the talk, that’s inspiring.

 

Number three: Show possibility.

We rarely admire others because of their status or grading and position at their job, or because of their wealth. What we admire in others is that they show us possibility. We admire those who dare to DO MORE and to BE MORE. We admire those who actually stretch us to do things that we didn’t believe we could.

Number four: Be passionate.

Being passionate about what you do is a game changer. In a world where people don’t have any passion anymore, in a world where people don’t have a mission or vision for their life, no particular goals, somebody who knows where they’re going exhibits an immense gravitational field. They are an attraction to others. Simply by showing that one can be passionate about something that they do.

Number five: Be caring.

There’s nothing more inspiring than somebody who has been successful while caring for others and helping others along the way. Because people intuitively believe that in order to be successful, it requires sacrifice. I don’t mean ‘sacrifice’ in the sense of hard work and long hours. But sacrifice in a sense of giving up your humanity. People believe that if you are successful you had to walk over corpses.

If you can prove them wrong and if you can show them that one can be successful while being caring and helpful, you can be sure of admiration and impact on others.

With these five suggestions, I hope I could propose to you some elements that you can look at or focus on in order to be more inspiring.

You’re not inspiring if you say something clever once in a while. You’re not inspiring if you do something nice once in a while. But you are inspiring if you are the person that other people want to copy.
