Inspiring others to be Decisive and Take Action Now

Inspire Others

Make a decision, be decisive and take action. Indecisiveness breeds failure. Live by choice, not by chance. Make changes, not excuses. Get motivated, not manipulated. Work to excel, not compete ~ John R. Salkowski   There is a way of inspiring others to make decisions, take action and make a positive difference in their lives. This is how you can grow into the best version of YOU! Listen to your inner voice, it’s always right and be selective on who you take advice from not the jumbled opinions of everyone out there.

Here are the Top 5 ways to Inspire Others to be Decisive and Take Action Now:

1) Care about Others

People don’t care about how much you know, until they know how much you care.

2) Challenge others to do their Best

As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be.” If people know we expect great things from them, they will often go to great lengths to live up to our expectations.

3) Share Personal Experiences from your Failures to your Successes

Always be a resource to those around you. If you have access to essential information, don’t hoard it, share it openly. You have more to share than you realize. Mine the rich experiences of your life and share your wisdom from your unique point of view. Be vulnerable. Be willing to share your failures as well as your successes. Others will relate to you. They’ll understand that they’re not the only ones with challenges.

4) Express your Enthusiasm

Passion is something you must be willing to express if you want to inspire others. You will gain a lot of influence just by publicly expressing that you’re excited and passionate about a topic. Expressive passion is contagious. You’ll get people inspired by having them wonder why you love what you love so much. Most will and some won’t take the time necessary to understand what it is about the topic that moves you so much.

5) Be Authentic and True to Yourself

In this crazy world that’s trying to make you like everyone else, or as I call it “PC or Political Correctness”, find the courage to keep being your awesome self. Embrace that individual inside you that has ideas, strengths, wisdom and beauty like no one else. Be the person you know yourself to be – be the person you want to be – the best version of you – on your terms. Above all, be true to YOU, and if you cannot put your heart and soul into it, take yourself out of it. No it won’t always be easy; because when it comes to living as a compassionate, empathetic, non-judgmental human being, the only challenge greater than learning to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes, is learning to walk a lifetime in your own.
