There will be people you will come across throughout your life who will inspire you to make a positive change. These people have this power because they are people who kept going for their dreams and never gave up. You can come across these people in person or through some other outlet like a book or on video. We’ve heard of individuals who have inspired people all over the world because of what they have done. Take Lance Armstrong for example. Here is a man who overcame testicular cancer to win seven straight Tour De France titles in a row, a feat that has never been done.
One person out of many who inspired me to make a positive change in my life was a manager I used to work for. He inspired me to read self-improvement books. Before he came along, I hated reading books. The only books I ever read up to that point were books that were assigned to me by my teachers in school. Reading these books changed my whole life around. I went from being a very pessimistic person who saw life as a boring chain of events to seeing life a wonderful gift to be fully experienced.
Through their success and accomplishment, these people can inspire you to do the same. So why is it that there are so many inspirational people doing such amazing things but not very many people making a positive change in their lives. The reason is because inspiration fades away if it’s not acted upon. If I had not gone to the library and started reading those books right away, I probably wouldn’t have gone if enough time had gone by. When someone inspires you to do something, to complete the inspiration, you must take some sort of action that you haven’t taken before.
If you see a story of someone on T.V. who went from overweight to fit by sticking to a diet and not giving up and that inspires you, do something to make a change immediately. The longer you wait, the less intense that inspirational feeling will be. When something inspires you, it’s a sign that it’s time for you to make a change. Don’t wait. Life is way too short to be putting things off that can completely change your entire life around. Too many people miss the opportunity to make their life the way they want it simply because they don’t take action soon enough. Don’t let this be you. The next time someone inspires you to do something, do it right away.
