When you need inspiration, you don’t have to look far. Look at your own family members, teachers, mentors, coworkers and friends to be inspired. Strangers also, when you hear about them or read about them, are a source of inspirational learning.

Following are the kinds of people that inspire me and motivate me to be a better person:

  1. They are always optimistic. Their optimism shines through and sheds a warm light on others around them. These people never have a bad day, because they see the flicker of sunlight through the dark clouds.
  2. They are extremely dependable. They keep their word, making good on their commitments. You can bank on such individuals.
  3. They always have good things to say about others. They are very selective; in that they overlook the weaknesses and highlight the strengths of a person.
  4. They are intelligent. When faced with a problem, they do not panic. Instead, they analyze the situation and understand the big picture before deciding on the course of action.
  5. They are genuinely compassionate people who care about others. They will be with you through thick and thin. They are the ones to offer you a shoulder to cry on and if need be, the shirt off their back.
  6. They are the ones who accept their mistakes and truly work on improving themselves. 
  7. They are kindhearted and speak sweet words, distributing happiness wherever they go.
  8. They live a holy life even though they are not monks. Theirs is a disciplined life, in which they balance their worldly duties with devotion to God.
