You should care about others. When people know how much you care, they care less about how much you know. Make sure you ask questions. Show a genuine interest in others.
Be encouraging. We all face challenges. You will inspire people to see the best in themselves and in the situation when you support and encourage them through these times.
Be an inspiration yourself. You should seek out people, ideas, environments, and knowledge that inspires and motivates you.
Share what you know. You have more to contribute than you think. Explore the rich experiences of your life and share your wisdom from a unique perspective. You may be the only person who can inspire someone with your message.
Let yourself be vulnerable. Embrace both your successes and failures. You'll be able to relate to others. They'll realize they're not alone in dealing with challenges.
Share your experiences. Let the facts speak for themselves. They will inspire you, too. We all need to develop our own inspiring stories and learn from parables.
Become a good communicator. For you to inspire others, you need to improve your ability to communicate effectively. Pay attention to how you speak and what you say. Develop your communication skills.
Engage others. We have all had teachers who have seemed more like tormentors than mentors at times. They pushed us to do our best, and we were better for it.
Read on. All readers are not necessarily leaders, but all leaders are certainly readers. Be informed. Let others know what you read. Share books that inspire you. Share the knowledge.
