It’s not enough to just live a “good enough” life. We all want to be surrounded by inspiring people. People who, even in the face of adversity, can still find a way to look forward. Or people who are confident and excited about life and the things that they’re doing – people who, in turn, elevate and inspire us to see a world full of possibilities.
So how do we ensure we have people like that in our lives? We create them. We do whatever we can to be the one who inspires people and elevates our friends and family.
Good is Not Enough: 4 Ways to Elevate Others
- Help the people in your life without expecting anything in return. This can create a chain of people helping each other.
- Sharing your truth and being your authentic self will transform your life and the lives of those around you. This is one of the ways that inspires people the most.
- It’s amazing to share your story because it changes your life, and it changes other people’s lives, too, especially when your story is full of overcoming adversity.
- Elevate others through your words. Words can build us up or tear us down. If you take some time to validate someone in your life and tell them that you appreciate them, it goes a long way and can be the thing that helps to light a fire in them, even in the face of adversity.
Conclusion: The power of inspiring people
It’s easy for us to fall into the trap of believing that good is good enough. But it’s not enough when you can strive to live a life that inspires people to be better and to reach for more.
