What Are The Traits Of An Inspirer?

With thousands of inspiring men and women surrounding us. Throughout history to date. There is no limitation to becoming a person who inspires oneself.  And another.

Considering our age of technology. What creates positive awakenings in a person? To invent. To create. To influence. To encourage. To persuade. To impel.

What inspires me? Who inspires me?

Many people. In various ways. By their life story. By the risks they took. By their success. By their perseverance. Displayed in their writings. Their ideas. Their innovation. Outlined in their determination. Their kindness. Their selflessness. Their tenacity. Their discipline. Their talent.

Here are 6 people I have chosen from my increasingly long list. All of them are leaders in their own field. They pursued their greatest passion. They didn’t think they would make a difference. Yet they have enthused many. With their optimism. Their resilience. Sociability.

1| Billy Graham

A man of integrity.  Committed to the call of being a follower of Christ. His messages are simple. One of God’s grace. Hope in Christ. Author of numerous books yet a humble man. Filled with compassion. He reached out to all. His stand as Christian has remained firm over decades. His faith undeterred in the Rock of Ages.

His famous quotes include:

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Suppose you could gain everything in the whole world, and lost your soul. Was it worth it?

We are the Bibles the world is reading; we are the creeds the world is needing; we are the sermons the world is heeding.

Incarcerated for 27 years on Robbin Island, he made a choice. The day he walked out of prison he left his bitterness and hatred behind. His story is one of peace and positivity.  Self-effacing but a visionary of hope. A remarkable exhibition of forgiveness.

His famous quotes include:

One of the most difficult things is not to change society but to change yourself.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
