If you want to inspire others, be inspiring! There is no question that it motivates us when we see someone doing something on their own. They have taken the necessary steps to do what it takes to get something done. For example....you look out your window and see your neighbor planting flowers, cleaning up their yard, or painting their fence. That's inspiring. You pass by the gym and see your friend walking out, and notice that she's several pounds lighter than the last time you saw her. That's inspiring. I love being inspired by others! Nothing gets me going faster than that. I'd rather be inspired than fixed....do you know what I mean? If someone is telling me that I should be doing something, it is somehow NOT the motivation I need to get it done. But, inspire me, without saying a word, and it's a done deal! People would rather be inspired, than fixed. So if you want to inspire someone, BE what you want to see.

to accomplish what you yourself
are not willing to try."
