The Simplest Ways To Inspire People And Change Their Life

Has anyone ever inspired you to change your life in a significant way that made you healthier, happier, or more fulfilled? If so, you understand the difference that positive inspiration can make in a person’s life. Inspiration is powerful, but it isn’t easy. Would you like to return the favor by making a positive difference in the life of your friends, family, or co-workers? If you want to be a positive influence capable of inspiring your loved ones to become better versions of themselves, please consider these 20 ways to inspire people around you.

1. Care.

If you can’t show a person that you genuinely care about them, do you think you will be able to inspire them? The answer is a resounding, “NO!” Show people you care in your words (“How are you today?”) and your actions (small acts of kindness go a long way). 

2. Be enthusiastic.

The saying “enthusiasm is contagious” is common enough to be cliché, but it’s a cliché because it’s true. Reflect enthusiasm every day to the people you are in contact with and I’m willing to wager your genuine smiles, positive energy, and caring concern will be returned ten-fold.

3. Earn trust.

If a person you know and love tells you a secret, it stays between you and them. Trust takes a long time to build, but it can be destroyed overnight, so don’t take part in workplace gossip or unnecessary drama in your social networks so you can be a positive influence that people are unafraid to talk to.

4. If it’s not positive, don’t say it.

It’s easy to criticize people, but that doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do. Think about it: how do you react if someone insults your intelligence, makes fun of your outfit, or criticizes your performance? Whether the criticism is justified or not, I bet you get upset. No one likes to be criticized, so if you don’t have anything positive to say, don’t say it at all.

5. Build people up.

Small compliments have a way of brightening any day, irregardless of the dark shadows that may be overhead. Don’t believe me? Find someone in your office wearing a frown, tell them how cute (or handsome) they look today, and watch a bright smile take over their face. If your compliment doesn’t make their day, I’ll buy you a beer.

6. Stand your ground.

It’s easy to let life-stress shake our foundation of inner-strength as human beings, but if you want to inspire people around you, learn to stand your ground through thick and thin. Stand firm if you want to show the people around you that even the worst of circumstances can be overcome with positive thinking, continuous improvement, and a never-say-die attitude.

7. Admit your flaws.

Although it is important to not flinch when life throws us a curve-ball, it is equally important to acknowledge the fact that we are all human beings here, and thus are all inherently flawed. Everyone has at least one glaring weakness or two, so accept your short-comings to humanize yourself so people can relate to you on a deeper level. Show me a person who claims to be without fault and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

8. Be an active listener.

Anyone can hear the words other people say, but not many people can actively listen and comprehend those words to fully understand the meaning behind them. Make eye-contact if someone talks to you about their problems and ask follow-up questions to show them you care about what they are going through and want to understand where they are coming from as well as you can.

9. Reach for the stars.

No one will be inspired by a person who resigns themselves to “reality” (such a dreadful place that sounds devoid of hope or personal growth in my opinion). Be ambitious, aim high, and never surrender if you want to inspire people that they, too, can accomplish anything they set their mind to.

10. Deliver constructive criticism.

First of all, constructive criticism should only be delivered if it is asked for. Remember point #4: if it’s not positive, don’t say it. If you criticize someone for their flaws without any input requested, you’re just going to upset them. But if you are asked for input, deliver it in a positive manner. For the sake of example, let’s assume someone asked you for feedback about an article, blog, essay, or resume that they wrote. You might deliver your feedback like this:

“First, thank you for asking me for input: it means a lot that you trust me! I looked it over and let me just say that I love what you did with [insert positive compliment here]. But I think it might be even better if you did this instead [insert constructive criticism and feedback for improvement here].” 

11. Treat everyone equally.

We are all equal human beings regardless of our gender, politics, race, religion, and other factors. Love and care for people without consideration of these irrelevant factors that have no influence on the quality of a person. Treat others how they want to be treated, no matter their background, to inspire trust and confidence.

12. Walk with confidence.

Keep your head high and eyes forward so you can say, “Hello,” or, “How are you?” to everyone you walk past. Walk with a friendly swagger that reflects confidence in who you are.

13. Stay calm and cool.

How people react to insults or criticism speaks highly about their ability to inspire others. If you respond to hate with more hate, how are you any better than the person who started the confrontation? (Hint: you’re not!) No matter how out-of-place or harsh an insult was, it’s best to stay calm and cool, because getting upset will not make you feel any better (and it certainly won’t inspire people around you). Shrug off insults like they didn’t happen and those who witness your unflinching nature might be inspired to do the same.

14. Share your influences.

What books have made a huge impact on who you are as a person? What sources of inspiration help guide the most important decisions in your life? How did you become the happy, healthy, positive person you are today? Share the influences that shaped who you are so others can also benefit.

15. Acknowledge contributions of others.

No matter how wonderful you are, you’re just one person, so I’m sure others have contributed to your greatest successes in life. If you’re a writer and receive a compliment about a particular passage that one of your friends inspired, say something like, “I so appreciate that, but you know what’s funny? It wasn’t even my idea! My super talented and brilliant friend _______ gets full credit.” Acknowledge the contribution publicly if at all possible to show people you’re humble and thoughtful enough to give credit where it’s due.

16. Keep your promises.

If you volunteered to help with a cause and you get invited to a movie or concert, you need to keep your word, no matter how much more fun the other thing may be. It’s easy to ditch our responsibilities when a more interesting opportunity presents itself, but this is a sure-fire way to destroy the trust you’ve worked so hard to earn, so you’d be wise to keep your word no matter what.

17. Stay true to who you are.

A lot of us have a variety of “selves” that come out depending on the social situation: home, work, and friends all require a different song-and-dance. But putting on a different show for every group of people you encounter is super exhausting, and it’s certainly not a good way to inspire people around you. Would you place your confidence in a person who was so uncomfortable in their personality that they felt the need to pander to whatever crowd they were with? Embrace your true self without apology.

18. Explore alternative thoughts and ideas.

Anyone who thinks they have all the answers is kidding themselves, so make a point of challenging your beliefs on a regular basis. If you’re fiscally conservative, explore a well-thought out piece by someone on the opposite end of the political spectrum so you can see the other side of the story. If you’re a Christian, explore the thoughts of the most highly regarded Muslims to discover why they believe what they do. Have conversations with people who believe differently than you do to learn what makes them tick. It’s unlikely you’ll change your mind, and if you really believe something with conviction, it should hold up to scrutiny. Your openness will show others that you are so firm in your convictions that you’re willing to challenge your beliefs. You’ll also develop trust in people who think differently than you do, who otherwise might have been afraid to approach you.

19. Never add insult to injury.

If you win an argument, there is no need to brag about it. Proclaiming, “I told you so,” will make you look arrogant and discourage people from approaching you about the important things (and rightfully so!)

20. Set people free.

Don’t merely give people step-by-step advice, but instead give them the freedom to figure it out by themselves. No one likes a micro-manager. If you’re asked for help, deliver a rough guideline to get a person moving in the right direction, but intentionally leave something left to the imagination so they will have the freedom to fill-in-the-blanks. When a person discovers they are capable of figuring things out by their lonesome, they will discover they are more powerful than they ever thought possible.

How Do You Inspire People Around You?

Have you had the pleasure of inspiring a person to take a positive step forward to a better life? Or has someone helped inspire you to overcome a significant struggle? If so, we’d love to hear all about it in the comments!

A woman in love with you can inspire you to heights you never dreamed of.... ▷ Socratify.Net

A woman in love with you can help increase your creative abilities, can inspire you to such heights that you never even dreamed of. And she asks for nothing in return. She just needs your love, and this is her natural right.

About a woman (Osho) (20+) nine0009

To love is to share; to be greedy is to accumulate. Greed only wants and never gives, while love only knows how to give and asks nothing in return; She shares without conditions.

Love. Freedom. Loneliness (Osho) (20+)

You grow up and discover the most different sides in yourself - sometimes those that you didn’t even imagine in yourself before.

Angelina Jolie (50+) nine0009

When a man needs a woman, he is little interested in her past and even her present... He just cares about her future!

Unknown author (1000+)

If you are insulted, never answer them back, because if a dog barks at you, you do not get on all fours and do not bark back at him!

Mikhail Zadornov (100+) nine0009

When you do something for others from the bottom of your heart, without expecting gratitude, someone writes it in the book of fate and sends happiness that you did not even dream of.

Angelina Jolie (50+)

Love begins where nothing is expected in return.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery (100+)

No matter how strong a woman is, she waits for a man stronger than herself, and not so that he would restrict her freedom, but so that he would give her the right to be weak. nine0008 Angelina Jolie (50+)

You need support and at this moment you usually turn out to be of no use to anyone. In fact, no one needs you all the time, you just notice it only when you need support.

Unknown author (1000+)

You can realize that people have the right to think differently from what you think and not to do what you expect them to do. They probably love you, but their love may not manifest in the way you want. nine0008 Liz Burbo (5)

How to inspire your man and why it is important for relationships

At the forum in a very popular mom group, one participant posted the question: “Girls, how do you inspire your men?” A thread of three hundred comments quickly grew under the post. These are just the ones I have seen. When I asked what to write the next blog about, our site editor answered without hesitation: “Write how to inspire and motivate men. Like behind every great man is a great woman." In the group of my girlfriends who instantly react to any topic with examples from life, two remained silent, one wrote “I will listen myself,” and another cheerfully replied: “Oh, I inspire all the time, a lot of familiar men turn to me” ... nine0008

I thought about it. To be honest, for a long time, I, like my friend, believed that I could inspire men, it was not in vain that they turned to me for advice, they were ready to just give gifts, help and do everything that they write about in popular articles on the topic “How make a man shower you with gifts." However, I didn’t do anything special for this, and I didn’t even think about the fact that I actually work as their muse.

And the first thing that came to my mind in the course of my reflections: it's easy to inspire other people's men, especially if you don't need anything from them. Big is seen from a distance, which means you inspire without thinking, and this, it turns out, works the coolest. You can inspire:

With a smile

I can't count how many random passers-by / fellow travelers have a better day just because a beautiful girl smiled at them. But I am sure that if such a study were carried out, the result would be indicative.

With an encouraging phrase

Say/write to friends how great they are, how well they did, thank you.

By speaking

It is very important for men to be able to speak and be heard. This is important for everyone, but for men, even the most successful ones, especially. And we will talk about this later and in more detail. nine0008


Do you like when people give you flowers for no reason? They, too, only men rarely talk about it. I remember once I really liked a guy. Romantic relations did not work out, but we were friends and he helped me a lot in difficult life situations. I knew that he was going through a psychologically difficult period, and one day I sent him a football souvenir (he is a fan) and a postcard with something like this: “The sun always shines behind the clouds.
