Low self-esteem is an appraisal of one’s self worth. Regardless how much confidence others believe you hold; if you have even the smallest bit of doubt or insecurity about yourself, if you allow it to, it can and will consume you.
We are all inspired in different ways, but have you ever admired someone that inspired you?
Did you dream that you too could be an inspiration to others?
Well, here are 5 ways to bring and keep inspiration in your life.
Never fear Failure:
At some point and time during our lives we are all going to fail. It’s inevitable. Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before he found success.
Thomas Edison said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
As challenging as it can be, it is best to let go of any negative thoughts you may possess. Teach yourself how to work through past failures and be optimistic towards future projects and what the future has to hold. The best way to stay inspired is to stay positive and refuse to fear failure! From experience, it can be a challenging letting go of fear, but it’s the only way to fully free your soul.
It is important to find pleasures that complement you and your personality.
The best way I have found to inspire yourself is to only allow only positive things into your life whether it may be friends, family members, a book, a movie or music. I for one am personally inspired by music. It allows the negative energy to leave my body and allow positive vibes to enter my soul.
Live life to the Fullest:
It took many years, but after the birth of my grandson I learned to live each day to the fullest. It took time, but I learned it is vital to focus on you, your wants, needs and desires. Live each day as it was your last. None of us knows exactly how much time we have left on this earth. Why waste what precious time you do have left with family, friends, and loved ones worrying about what others think. What others think is not important but what you think and feel is.
I strongly believe in the power of prayer. From my own personal experiences, I have learned whenever you feel bad about yourself or others, or have doubts, turn your focus to your Lord and Savior in prayer. Remember that God created the heavens and the earth, and together there is no mountain you can’t climb. Always pray, seek answers and find strength within your creator.
The biggest way to inspire you is to learn to love yourself. Too many people focus on their looks and weight that they forget to look closely into the mirror of who they truly are. Don’t allow others to define you, the person you have become or the love you have for yourself.
Loving yourself can be extremely hard for many people because like myself, I too can see my own flaws but I learned instead of focusing on your flaws, focus on your qualities. Loving yourself is what is important.
Remember, we are all human and we all make mistakes, have flaws and small imperfections that we may not find attractive or love, but those flaws don’t define us as a person, they are part of our journey on how we got to become the inspiring person we are today.
Now, be inspired and leave your mark on the world!
