We all have inspirational people in our lives; people who have encouraged
and inspired us to believe in ourselves. Many of these people have inspired
me by their books and recordings. Their words of
ones that can apply to all of our lives. They share their knowledge, experience, and
wisdom to make a difference in the lives of many. They have inspired and
have been a role model for many.
Ordinary People With Extraordinary Gifts
You may through the course of a lifetime find inspirational people
in your life who are not famous,
are not authors, nor are they motivational speakers. These can be what
might be termed ordinary people with an extraordinary gift to inspire and provide encouragement to
those around them. These special people may be someone
you meet at work and that person could be a co-worker, or a
supervisor who excels at leading people through example,
through skilled coaching sessions, and one who always sees the solution
instead of the problem.
It could also be a person that you meet at church, or in a bowling league,
or a schoolteacher or a minister, or the neighbor next door. It doesn't matter
who the person is or isn't in terms of a position of importance; the real matter
is that they are inspiring and uplifting.

The One Thing They All Have In Common
I am sure you will recognize some of these people as they have
been a role model and have inspired millions of people. The one thing
they all have in common is their
towards life. They tend to look at the positive side of things. They
demonstrate a willingness to help others. Attitude makes such a difference
in a person's life.
The other common factor is their willingness to encourage others.
These people are always willing to help improve others lives. They
provide support and give people confidence in what they are doing.
Think of the people who have touched
your life, look
at their outlook on life and their philosophies. It is always better to model
the behaviour of people who are successful. It is also helpful to study them,
you will find many times that success did not just happen, many of them had
failures and disaapointments but that did not stop them. They showed
perseverance by getting back up and trying again. They learned from their
mistakes and started again with thier new found knowledge.
