Inspire Yourself

Who do you look up to the most in your life? Do you even have someone in your life who inspires you? Are you looking for some inspiration?

Look no further; look into your mirror at yourself. You yourself are truly an inspiration. You just don’t know it yet, because there is someone holding you back. Don’t blame the bully. (S)he is not holding you down. It is you. Don’t let that bully force you into a corner. Take the opposing personality of that bully who is bullying you and be forceful in kindness and gratitude towards him / her. (S)he is not expecting it. (S)he is expecting you to crawl into your corner. This is called reverse psychology.

Show that bully you are strong and fierce in self-confidence and don’t back down. Be true to yourself; be open and honest with others; treat others like you want to be treated – with dignity and respect; most of all be inspirational. You are a leader; not a victim, nor a follower. You are born to be a courageous and brave inspiration to others. And do you know why? You did not let that bully push your into a corner and remain quiet. Now inspire yourself, then go inspire others with your brave soul.
