Inspire Others through Continual Growth

Inspire Others through Continual Growth

Life’s opportunities and challenges never end. There will always be something new to learn, to try, and to experience.  There will be new people to meet, new places to go, new insights to gain, and to share.

One of the best ways to share God’s goodness is by living in a manner that inspires others.  A wonderful way to inspire others is through an attitude of support and encouragement. As parents, this is one of our primary ways to nurture our children as they grow.
Every parent has the opportunity to nurture and develop seeds of potential in their child. My own mother taught me the importance of unconditional love and to always believe in myself.  No matter what we were going through as a family I always knew my mother loved me – and believed in me.  Her inspiration has remained with me throughout my life.

There are many ways to inspire others—and another powerful way to inspire others is by challenging yourself with continual growth!

God designed you to be a continual learner.  He also designed you to continue to explore His creation and to push yourself outside of your boundaries.  Although this might make you uncomfortable in the beginning, it broadens your path toward new opportunities—and gives others the courage to do the same.

You should strive to be different today than you were yesterday – and different tomorrow than you were last month.  You should strive for constant transformation in your life!  Your ability to engage in continual growth will also determine how you are able to impact others and the world.

As God takes us out of our comfort zones in order to stretch us and expand our capacities, we can influence others as we go through our own development process.  God desires for us to grow in our abilities, and to be examples to those around us as we do so. And as we develop stronger character traits, it’s God’s intention that we impact the lives of others as well.

To take on the challenge of continual growth:

• Set new learning goals, and choose to learn something new daily
• Exercise your mind and your body
• Stay teachable – seek understanding and wisdom
• Accept God’s corrective measures
• Give yourself the rest that produces creativity
• Reward yourself generously and often
• Find those around you that need the inspiration you have to share

So, begin today, to challenge yourself through continual growth…and you will also begin to influence and inspire others, and positively impact the world we live in!
