As we grow old, we begin to notice people and the things they do. Eventually, we start imitating their behavior, values, and beliefs. We are mesmerized by their persona and achievements. These people who we admire become our inspiration or role models.
We are in awe of the things they do and the way they do it. Whenever we are stuck in a situation, we think what the person we idolize would do if he/she were in the same situation. Our role models are our constant source of motivation and energy. We try to learn as much as we can from them. Most of us have role models that famous figures and never end up meeting them. Yet, through our lives, we are constantly guided by and thereby we choose to live the life we live.
Inspiration is not just found in other people but also situations. Any act ordinary from the usual being is often inspired by a certain moment or situation. For instance, seeing someone help another person who is in need inspires us to reflect on it and do the same. Though faith in oneself is the most important thing, it is inspiration that fuels faith.
As human beings we shouldn’t just be inspired by the materialistic byproduct but the values, virtues and thought process that is behind all that success. We have infinite potential to learn from each other and remain inspired every day after today. Beautiful, isn’t it?
